How I Get Hub Traffic

Updated on January 14, 2014

I have heard this question asked so much; "How do I get hub traffic?" I just had to finally answer.

First and foremost, it won't happen over-night.

I have many ways I get traffic and I am always watching for more.

In this hub I will tell you a few. Much of this rides on the types of hubs you write. Use your imagination. There are tons of ways.

Scroll down and learn some simple tricks.

Make Friends

Really, this is a cut and dry way to get traffic. Make friends and tell them what you have wrote.

Friends want to know you more and will read what you write.

I have a unique name here on hub pages and it simply goes like this: When someone is interested in me and wants to know more, I just say, " Google Froggy213". It works. It also helps me in rankings with Google, as they use their search engine to find me.

Firefox Only

I am a StumbleOn freak. I love it and it generates a lot of internet traffic for me.

One thing you will learn is a lot of that kind of traffic is stop and go, but they will come back if they like your stuff.

StumbleOn is also a social site; make friends there too and your numbers will rise.

Only Firefox browser users can benefit from stumble. It is a Firefox add-on. Too bad for you Internet Explorer users.

Social Networks

There are many social networks. I have only a few that I am a member of.

Social networks can be a great way to give your hub pages out. You can also put your hub widget in some.

I even have my own Social network called For Our Children's Future.

Other networks I am a member of are:

  1. Twitter
  2. My Yearbook
  3. Facebook

Just a few. If you try to be a member of all, you will thin out too much and won't solve a thing.

You can see my profiles at each at the links.

Forums

I am a member of several different forums. As threads develop that are in-line with hubs you have wrote, post them!

I will put the link to a forum finder and also links to forums I belong to.

Hopefully traffic will come your way. Don't spam people! That is very important.

Now write another hub!
