SEO: How to Attract Traffic to Your Pages?

Updated on July 27, 2012

I have seen that many of the writers have published hundreds of hubs, but the number of visitors to their hubs is very low. Just writing on HubPages is not enough. We do not write just to express ourselves. Number of visitors to our hubs is most important. And if we want to make money through our hubs, then a high number of visitors becomes a must thing.

I am writing on blogs and websites for last few years. Here are some ways, which I am using to promote my blogs, websites and now Hubs.

Give a perfect Title to your Hub: For search engines like Google and others, the title of a page is a very important thing. The title should be relevant to the content. Perfect title will attract visitors through Search Engines, as well as from HubPages itself.

Write perfect Key Words: Key words is second important thing to attract visitors through search engines. Just have a look at the content of the hub, then make a list of relevant key words. Then add them asTags.

Write on different subjects: Always write on different subjects. Variety of subjects will attract more visitors. But at the same time, you should write multiple articles on different aspect of the same subject.

Put a link: Put a link to your HubPages in the signature box of your email. Every time you send an email to anybody, this link will appear at the end of your message. This trick will attract some traffic to your Hubs.

Use Social Networking Sites to promote: join social network websites like Facebook, Google Plus, Orkut and others. Invite your friends to add you as a friend in such sites. Also join communities, groups and pages at the social networking sites. Then post links of your Hubs on your wall, as well as in the groups and communities. But remember that you should not spam.

Submit to Web Directories: Submit the URL of your hub to web directories and search engines.

Write at other places: Beside hubpages, you should write at other places also. At the end of your write up, give a back link to your HubPages

Leave Comments: Leave comments on the Hubs by others, as well as the relevant articles on other websites, giving a back link to your hubpages. Do Not Spam.

Increase number of followers: A high number of followers would automatically drive more traffic to your Hubs. The only way to increase followers is to Write, Write and Write. Write more articles, write in forums, answer questions, ask questions. Show your existence. This way you will get more followers.

    All these are wonderful ideas and will definitely boost our viewership and rank. But may I ask you is there such things as tags now in HP? I don't see any option for that while publishing hubs. Could you please clarify something more about submitting URLs to directory. Thank you for sharing your knowledge here. Your article is so informative and useful to all online writers.

    Nice Points! I would like to add the one thing more. Sharing your hubs to the related theme groups or put in the form of answer to related user's question. In a group, hundreds or thousands of bloggers exists, then you can gain quality syndication for your hubs.

    While writing try to feed your article with useful and well important resources links (hubs) of some examples or practical instance (varies with topic). This really attract visitors to be continue reading. Oops! I also like to add some original pictures to my hubs. People gets much influenced and like your beautiful catches photos in your hubs. I think, through all above you will surely increase the traffic figure for your written hubs. Write for user you will gain good traffic :)

    Another great topic well covered. I do not know if you have written anything on "How to avoid spamming on a site", but I would find that very useful as I see that you mention it in your hub. Thanks for the information.

    Hi there, good hub. However even including different social sites like Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon it seems the traffic to Hubpages isn't really that great.... I am currently re-evaluating my options.

    Good question. Although our pages get submitted automatically as being sub domain, you will find that we do not find them in search results for many days. Further we do not know where HubPages are submitted. If we submit separately, it will be beneficial for us.

    I have experienced that doing this helps for early listing in search engines.

    you have mentioned in you hub that submitting our Hub Url on the web will help....just a quick question that we are already a sub-domain of hub pages so don't they automatically get submitted to the directories..

    Just wondering not sure
