How and Why to Share Hubs Written by Other Writers?

Updated on February 26, 2012

Why to Share Hubs Written by Others?

There are many benefits of sharing the Hubs written by other Hubbers. The first benefit is that by sharing a Hub you help the Hubber to get a lot of traffic to his Hub. As there are many Hubbers who write informative, useful and interesting Hubs, by sharing such Hubs you appreciate those Hubbers. At the same time, you help your followers to easily access such Hubs, because when you share a Hub, a link to it is displayed in the feed section of your followers. It also helps you to show your presence on Hubpages.

There is a big personal benefit for you in sharing the Hubs written by other Hubbers. It increases the traffic, especially the traffic from Search Engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing and others. Please read these Hubs for detailed information on how search engine traffic boosts by sharing Hubs written by other Hubbers:

Does SHARING Increase Your Search Engine Traffic? by Brett.Tesol and How The Traffic to My Hubs Boosted by Sharing Hubs of Other Writers? , Where to Find the Hubs to Share? by myself (jainismus Mahavir Sanglikar)

How and Where to Share the Hubs?

Now you know why you should share the Hubs written by other Hubbers. Sharing a Hub is a very easy thing. Just go to the end part of any Hub. You will see a share button. (See the image below)

Now click on the share button and you will see many buttons for sharing the Hub. (See the image below)

You can share a Hub at different places by clicking the buttons. Here is a short description:

Sharing with Followers: By clicking the respective button, the Hub is shared with your followers at Hubpages. When you click the button, the link of the Hub is displayed in the feed i.e. Home section of each of your followers. (The number of your followers is an important factor for generating traffic so you should increase the number of your followers. Tips on increasing the number of your followers are available at: How to Get More Followers: Try This Method)

Sharing with Facebook Friends: By clicking the Facebook button, you can share the Hub with your Facebook Friends. It is necessary to link your Facebook Account with Hubpages. If it is not linked, just click the Facebook button and follow the instruction that appears on the screen.

Sharing on Twitter: Like Facebook, you can share a Hub on Twitter too.

Sharing at Bookmarking Sites: Besides the social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, you can share a hub with Social Bookmarking Sites like Digg, Stumble Upon and Reddit.

To use this facility of sharing a Hub with Social Networking and Bookmarking sites, you must be a member of the related sites.

Linking: Another way to Share

Linking a Hub with your Hubs is another way to share it. You can link a Hub using the link capsule. Generally we use this capsule to link our own Hubs, but you should link other Hubs too, written by other Hubbers.

Besides using the links capsule for linking, you can link important Hubs in Text capsule.

    Nice Hub! I've been "here" for 3 years now and only today I discovered hub sharing... shame on me :)

    Just one doubt, is there a way to see which hubs of your have been shared?

    Very useful information. It wasn't until I started sharing that I saw a boost in my own traffic. Excellent hub.

    Sharing is one of the major thing that influences the promotion of content on the internet. It is always a better practice to share good content written by others and you can also expect the same in return..

    I think you've provided useful information with this hub. Sometimes as writers we are so involved with the craft of writing that we can put socialization aside. To me, that's a part of the sharing process -- a pat on the back to a fellow hubber and spreading the word to others so they can have access to various topics and perspectives.

    Thanks for SHARING.

    Great ideas here. Sharing hubs that other people might have an interest in, even if they have been written by other Hubbers, shows your friends and networks that your interest is on them rather than your profits. It keeps you from looking like a spammer.

    I share hubs all the time. Mostly just with my hub followers but every once in a while I will share on my facebook. Voted up :) Thanks for Sharing!

    Sharing can be the keyword to get noticed by so many other's around. I do however only share on Hubpages since I stopped my accounts on Facebook and Twitter.

    It may result in less traffic but I felt more and more annoyed by the idea of being 'victimized' by Social Networks and the power they have.

    It's not just the positive effect these networks have. The negative effects such as the total addiction of having to keep up with insignificant details of the lives of other's, made me decide to quit my account, next to the total lack of 'real privacy'.

    Anyway...Great Hub! Voted up and away!

    I agree with sharing but there are people on here that don't want hubs shared with them. I've read this on forums. Good Hub

    Thank you for the mention. I am very happy with how much SHARING has impacted traffic for many hubbers. While I though it would work well, I never realized that it would REALLY increase search engine traffic.

    Let the SHARING continue :-)

    I have found sharing other writer's hubs has increased my traffic too. I also get to read other hubber's work that I would miss since we don't all follow the same hubbers. Thank you for sharing this information.
