More Traffic To Hubpages For Everyone

Updated on July 14, 2011


Are you thinking outside the box? Have you ever considered how promoting other people’s hubpages can bring you in some extra traffic?

I am sure at this point you are probably thinking that you have enough work cut out for you trying to promote your own Hubpages, but what if this was something that would only take you maybe 60 seconds of your time or less if you’re quick?


Let me set the scene for you


Your doing your usual hubpages activities, your reading your fellow hubbers articles and you’ve come across a great one that you like and have found informative, you’ve made a comment on it and maybe even decided to bookmark it because you liked it.

I am assuming that if you are already writing for hubpages, then you probably are already taking the relevant steps to promote your own work to bring in your traffic. And if you are, then that means you probably already have various accounts set up in different places such as, facebook, myspace, stumbleupon, digg, reddit and so on.

You liked that article so why not share it, hit the share button below the article and share with your fan base too. It’s as quick as logging in to your preferred place; sharing the link and logging back out again. That’s it, done! I said this was quick.


But how does that help you?


Most of us realise from early on that our profits on here do not come from our fellow hubbers, they come from outside traffic, so it’s outside traffic we want to draw in.

What if by working together with promoting each others work, we can bring in more traffic to hubpages in general? 


Why do I think this could work?


Before I joined Hubpages I was the standard Internet user that I loved reading, and what’s more, I loved reading stuff that got straight to the point, or straight to the information I wanted to know. I was feed up of looking through loads of websites trying to find the answers, and I very quickly realised that articles online were cram packed with the good stuff.

So I looked online for articles. I came across sites like squidoo, suite 101, ezine and hubpages. I decided hubpages was my favourite. I liked how people laid out there work, most of the articles I’ve read on here are neat, tidy and are pleasant to read.

For about a year before I decided to join and write on hubpages myself, instead of going straight to Yahoo or Google and using their search engines, I came straight to hubpages knowing that I could type in just about anything that I wanted to read about, and you guys have more than likely already wrote an informative article about it. It’s a little bit like eBay, if you want it (it’s probably there). I knew if I wanted to know how to make chicken and mushroom pies then I could type it in and I would be likely find it, or if I wanted to know some ideas for money making online, I found it. ;-)

Well I was still the standard Miss Clicky then for a whole year, and if I saw an advertisement on your hubpages that looked interesting, I clicked on it. Giving you guys a unique visitor, or a unique source of traffic.


But that’s just my story right?


I see it as there are lots of people like me who love reading articles but don’t know where to look for them, so the more you can let people know that hubpages is here and that there are some amazing pieces of work on it, then the more traffic we can bring in as a whole.

So that’s why I am pondering with the thought, that by promoting other peoples hubpages could also benefit yours.


What do you think? Could it help?


Will you try it?

      hey nice article. Working together is very important in order to promote work of others and so they are more probable to do the same favour for you. And that is what I am now going to do. Voting this Up, Useful and sharing it to social media, so more people will read this and share!

      This has always made sense to me. Just makes good business sense. Also lets say you write ten hubs, post 8 of them here and 2 somewhere else. More exposure for all, plus opens many new doors. Excellent hub Victoria Stephens.

      Thanks again Sandyksk for stopping by.

      I can't help myself but be a little Miss Clicky, I get so intrigued by things I see on the Internet. To me it's like a huge information book that has no ending to it.

      Thanks again and best wishes.xxx

      Interesting concept, for sure...knowing you were 'out~there' reading for a year, Miss Clicky, (love that!) does show there are people who do search for quality articles to read...and of course, there are those who only read...and don't write...so I believe there must be something to it...so I will give it a try...Thanks again, for another useful article...:)
