Hubpages - Share and Earn

Updated on September 15, 2015

How to Write and Make Money from Hubpages

Copy of page views taken at an earlier part of the day

Towards evening it shot upto 395
Towards evening it shot upto 395

When Brett. Tesolpublished a hub “Do You Like to Share? Let's Help Everyone Get More Readers!” inviting fellow hubbers to read and share each other’s hub, I missed out it in the initial few days. When I could find time to read the hub, I found it interesting. I felt that he is reminding us the lesson learned in kindergarten. SHARE, SHARE, SHARE……..

So I started sharing other’s hubs following his idea. I used to look for hubbers sharing other’s hubs and started sharing their hubs. Many of my fellow hubbers responded and I was watching a temporary increase in the number of page views.

Following this, J. S. Matthewpublished a hub on “Why Do I Keep Seeing "Thanks for SHARING"in Many Great Comments On Hubs Lately?”

I commented on that hub and shared it. He responded by sharing my hub on “Confident children” to reddit.com.

Then came the bombshell. In a day the number of page views increased from 60 to 395. For many of you with an established traffic, this may be something insignificant. But to me it was like winning a lottery. I had doubts; probably it is a temporary phenomenon, still I was ecstatic all throughout the day.

My children complained “Mommy, You are getting addicted to Hubpages. How many times do you want to see your page views?”

They did not understand my joy of watching escalating page views.

I will be failing in my responsibility as a hubber if I don’t share this and acknowledge the role played by my fellow hubbers in giving me this happiness. My special thanks to Britt. Tesol for the idea on sharing and J. S. Matthew for carrying it forward.

Hubpages How To Get Started And Monetize Your Hubs

Thanks for everything

I have also noticed that my page views per day fluctuate somewhere between 180 and 200 now. I receive the maximum number of page views from Vote of thanks. Another hub on Colicky painis also showing signs of sprouting. The other two hubs which do fairly well are about reducing pimples on face and rubber wood furniture. If it is continued at this rate, I may hit the target of 10,000 early March.

I take this opportunity to profoundly thank all my friends who has viewed, voted, commented and shared my hubs and helped me come up to this stage.

Hubpages is a Legitimate Site to Make Money Online

      Nice to meet you. Now when I lookback I feel this hub has gone viral after my fellow hubbers shared it. But definitely sharing improves traffic.

      Thumb, I really feel that sharing each other hubs does make the page view go up but certainly did not know that it would go up by 6 times. Good work and voted up and shared.

      Thanks for that lovely and thoughtful comment

      Good article. I loved it well and had a nice reading. Could you please write a hub giving some useful tips on how to share a hub and the correct method of doing it. I have lot of doubts on it like should I inform the hubber that his hub is shared by me or should we give some text for sharing, etc. Anyhow I am sharing this useful article first with my Hubpage Followers. Meantime I will expect a good hub from you on sharing with FB, Tweet and other platforms.

      Wonderful article. Shows what the power of sharing can do. We teach internet marketers the value of sharing so will be posting this to one of our facebook fan pages.

      Since it is still in the start up phase we will also post it to twitter. As a corporation we now have two fan pages. One leads to our website and another we use to teach the value of social media as used in search engine optimization. The latter is where this article will be found.

      We learned the value of "caring and sharing" from a social marketing site we belong to. From that site alone we have received 350 views in a day from social sharing.

      This was an excellent hub capturing the power of sharing. I experienced the same effects about a year ago when I published a hub and linked it to a fellow hubber's hub related to the same topic. He had a larger following and recommended my hubs and I quickly reached 10,000 viewers. I then wrote another hub entitled "how to reach 10,000 page views with only 10 hubs." Now I have three hubs with over 25,000 views and several more quickly approaching 10k. Keep up the good work and keep sharing and success will come. Thanks for the great hub.

      Hi, Oceansnsunsets

      Happy to have you here.

      Brett. in his hub about sharing has mentioned that we can help each other by reading other's hub, commenting and sharing with followers and other social sites.

      In order to inform the author that we have shared their hub we can either use Thanks for SHARING or Socially Shared or Paying it forward.

      Sometimes I forget to use capitals

      But anyways, I like the idea and am trying to do it

      Thanks for the visit

    • oceansnsunsets profile image

      Paula 5 years ago from The Midwest, USA

      Hi Thumbi, I am still learning about the sharing, or SHARING (Not understanding what the capitals mean in that case, but it what I am observing). It makes sense though that by sharing our hubs with each other, we can all get higher views.

      So happy you got more views on certain hubs and I hope that continues for you! Have a wonderful day, and I will be "SHARING" this. :)

      Just thought I'd pop back to see how this hub was doing, and OMG ... what an incredible response you have had! As the sharing continues, you should also notice search engine traffic increase. Since publishing my initial results, I have noticed a large and continues increase from search engines.

      Really pleased all is working out for your, keep up the good work.

      Socially shared, and voted again.
