Hot Girls Increase HubPages Traffic

Updated on May 20, 2010

Hot Girls More Page Views

When I first started actually using HubPages I noticed that a large percentage of the top ranked Hubbers seemed to have pretty girls as their profile picture. Most of them were subtle, a pretty girl sitting on a chair, for example, but all attractive women nonetheless.

I even conducted an experiment where I changed my profile picture to one of two different hot girls I found in some clipart galleries. The results were negligible, partly due to the fact that in order for having a cute girl avatar bring any benefit, enough people have to see that attractive woman first.

Since I was getting little traffic at the time, and had a HubRank in the 70s, there was simply no effect. Ironically, I wrote about the experiment in a blog post called Hot Girls and Sexy Pictures on HubPages and that page ended up bringing a bunch of new visitors. Of course, most of them "bounced" away the moment they realized that there wasn't a big gallery of pics to be had.

However, the more HubPages experience I have, the more I continue to see the phenomenon. In the interest of giving everyone the best possible chance at getting lots of HubPages traffic, here is how to use pretty ladies to increase your traffic.

-- Other Hubs by this author that might interest you include a review of the Capital One Rewards No Hassle Miles card. Also up recently are some dining articles including the best pizza in Denver and the best Chicago pizza delivery nationwide. Finally, you might want to check out the 2010 529 plan contribution limits or just finally figure out what AP style writing is.

Hot Girl Picture!

Beautiful Women More Clicks

The first thing to understand is that for pictures of pretty girls to boost your traffic numbers, you must first have enough people see those pictures. Otherwise, your hot girls pictures can't entice anyone to click on your links. That means that you'll have to build some hubs, get them linked, and build up a bit of HubRank before you see any increase in traffic.

Once you are drawing in enough eyeballs for your eye candy to work, it is time to figure out how to incorporate the hot women pics into your Hubs. The most basic method is to simply make Hubs about hot girls. Pretty Indian actresses seem to be very popular on Hubpages. Include some of the appropriate keywords like, Bollywood and Desi, and you have a traffic generating machine. Any other female actresses or models can work as well. Structure your pages as tributes or biographies if you are interested in being legit. Otherwise, just copy and paste a long line of pictures pictures and a paragraph of text or two about each. They might get flagged eventually, but they are so easy to crank out, you can build 10 for every one that gets taken down.

Of course, if you would rather write about something other than the pretty ladies themselves, there is no reason you can't still benefit from their presence on your Hubs. Consider this recent HubMob Hub that was listed as a "featured Hub" on the front page. The hub, about how to avoid scammers when giving to charities. It is an informational hub that provides exactly the information the title says. The trick is that after the Hub's text is finished there is a large picture of a girl in a bikini.

How does this work? The HubPages system uses the first picture inside of a Hub as its icon or thumbnail. Since there is no other graphic in the Hub before this one, the Hub shows up with a hot girl in a bikini next to it's title about charitable giving. In a list of ten similar hubs, which one do you think will get the most clicks?

In this case, the author went the extra mile to make sure the bikini girl is "relevant" to the hub by finding a model with the word "Charity" in her name. Nice touch.

HubPages Babes Increase Traffic, But Why?

In the end, a Hubber need examine to what end they want to draw in extra traffic with the presence of hot girl pictures. In some cases, more traffic might mean more ad clicks and therefore allow a writer to make more money online with HubPages.

On the other hand, people clicking to see pretty girls are also more likely to not bother sticking around long enough to read any of the text. However, using that extra traffic to increase HubScores and HubRank can help the author move up higher in the rankings and therefore have more of their hubs displayed on various lists or "What's Hot" screens. If those hubs are profitable or otherwise worth something to the writer, then the tactic has provided the desired benefit.

      I don't know if it is sad or funny but it is true sex or sexuality does sell, so why not here at hubpages too.

      I did not know this until reading this article but have used pictures of sexy celebrities since I like looking at them. Also have a few articles on vitamin D. So I get sexy celebrity in bathing suit pics of them on the beach since they are getting vitamin D for free.

      Fair enough. It's mostly an experiment, and then I never really came back to bother changing the profile. For whatever it's worth, it's hardly an exploitive or racy picture.

      When I was young, I never liked being objectified. Therefore, I don't want to objectify other women.

      Also, I have daughters and granddaughters. I don't think it's a good idea to exploit someone's image in this way -- even someone I don't know.

      This article is inherently cynical. I would like to think that quality and true persona would win out as well. Frankly, I'm fairly certain it does over the long-term. This is obviously a ploy for short-term gain.

      I don't know, maybe, maybe not. I think I would rather just be real though. I think that in the end, a true persona will win over something fake. Good point to consider, though. Fodder for thought.

      Hmm. Very good point. Makes a lot of sense especially with the search engines, too.

      That's why I don't put a picture of myself as the profile picture.

      It makes sense, but I'd never actually thought about it before. Thanks for the heads up, more pretty lady pics on my hub and blogs! Voted up and useful.

      This is definitely good advice to those just starting out and looking to generate traffic and hub score quickly. After establishing one's self as a writer, perhaps this is not necessary, but certainly a good jumping off point. Thanks

      My hub with the most traffic is focused on girls. Actually, I made most of my money in general off girls lol. I got lucky and sold a $288 item of a girl to someone yesterday on Amazon($17 for me HAHA).

      I like your motivation and intellect. It is a matter of the ends justifies the means. Each writer has to decide what their motivation requires. I'm going for the experience and opportunity to write my truth, knowing it won't pay my bills. I appreciate your talent for writing interesting, easy to read, informative material in a very likable style. Thank you

      I can't argue with the results but, as you said, we have to examine the end result of using such a tactic.

      My credibility would be shot - plus, I would be attracting the wrong audience. I've made some mistakes along the way to earning money on the Internet. I've learned that just being myself is the best solution for me.

      At the end there is a reason if all those hubs worth nothing about Desi Aunts and similar stuff still are published here. As you rightly said they throw down the reputation of the site, but they bring in traffic.

      About the girl with the guitar, what a splendid mind! Great personality too.

      O.K. - I admit it, I'm like any other man and I am influenced too easily but this is interesting to me because I'm researching attention-grabbing headlines. I'm working on a great one at the minute but it will probably hiss people off when they read the content! I like your style so I'll be reading more of your hubs. Have you learnt how to play that guitar yet? Keep up the good work - Max :)

      Oh my gosh! I think this may be just what I need for my hubs! I've read that "Big Boobs Increase Pagerank" and I guess it can work within Hubpages as well. Thanks for the hot girl in the bikini hint-I hadn't realized this. I do need to add pictures to a few of my hubs.

      I thought the author got notified when people voted in a poll. Either I have something setup wrong, or that isn't the case.

      Anyway, thanks for voting!
