The Top 4 Best Ways to Get and Drive Traffic To Your Hubs and Earn More

Updated on August 22, 2011

How to get Search Engine Traffic Free

The road to achieving massive traffic is the root cause of success in article writing at Hubpages and on the entire internet. Without healthy organic traffic you will just be writing hubs for leisure, for those who are writing hub for leisure then that's fine. But if you want your hub to earn you more money then consider these 4 traffic generating tactics

1. Write Quality Content

After being in Hubpages for 2 years now, one of my biggest lessons that I have learnt about getting free traffic is adding original quality contents. Quality contents have been talked about by many members here at Hubpages or anywhere in the forums. To be frank this method of driving traffic to your hubs is not for the lazy people, if you are not committed to what you are writing then driving traffic through quality contents is just one of the dreams. My original hubs here are driving good search engine traffic which some of them normally convert into Google earning. Writing quality contents means that you are going to take time to develop these contents. You may have quality contents but if your quality contents are copied from somewhere else online then you should be prepare for no traffic. Quality contents has to be original, with originality you will be able to write very good and long text that will enable your readers to link on your article. Add quality contents as often as possible since search engines robots normal crawls your pages searching for new contents, as they noticed your new contents they will be ranked as fast as possible. Copied contents will be ignored by Search Engine robots and could lead to your account termination or suspension. The only cheap option to drive quality traffic to your hubs is to write quality contents with human being in mind, remember you are targeting the people to read and comment on your article, Other than original quality contents, include original quality photos, video

2. Distribute, Share Your hub

After you have published your hub, hubpages have got the most effective ways to share your contents online, use twitter to reach as many people as possible, Share your content on facebook and many other bookmarking site that you may know. By sharing your contents on other platform you are building back links to your hubpages, this will increase your page ranking and will help drive good organic traffic to your hubpages. The more you share your contents the more traffic you get and the more back link you get hence the more conversation you make, do not write your content for yourself, drive more traffic by sharing your contents of forums, blogs and any related platform that you have at your advantages. One of the most effective ways to share hubs is to create a mailing list that when you have created a new hub, you just mail to that mailing list without have to mail each and individual persons. Google allow lot users to create a mailing list that target many people


Drive traffic and earn more on Hubs

3. Have a great Hub Title

When writing a hub to your readers, it is the title that is going to drive them to click on your hub; your hub title should summarize the body of your hubs. If you hub title do not much with your hub contents, you are losing readers who may have bookmarked your hub or at least would have referred somebody to your hub. To drive traffic with good title hear is one of my hub with good title: How to make money posting link on twitter. If you check on the above title, one should expect to know ways that he can make money posting link on twitter when reading the hub , the hub contents should actually explained the method of making money on twitter by posting links no more no less. If the hub contents do not demonstrate ways in which you can actually earn money from twitter by posting links then you are misleading your readers who will not even bookmark your hub or even refer somebody to your hub or even commenting on your hub

4. Use relevant tags (keywords)

After you have finished uploading your contents on hubpages, to make sure that you get massive traffic to your hub, remember to use relevant keywords which are known as tags to your hub. Hubpages allows as many tags as possible and this will enable you drive more traffic to your hubs. It helps search engine locate your hubs and hubbers to will locate your hub by searching using these relevant tags. Tags are short descriptions of your hub contents; they describe what your hub is all about. Use as many tags as possible

5. Bonus: now that you have learned all this for those who have already signed up for hubpages, you can start implementing the 4 strategies that I have explained above, but if you have no account then get yourself a free hubpages accounts and start earning passive online income by writing articles

    • Neil Ashworth profile image

      George Poe 7 years ago from United Kingdom

      Good information on driving traffic.

      One other thing which will help is a good internal linking structure within your hubs - write a group of articles around the same topic, grouop the keywords and link the articles to one another in a loop ( I can describe it better if I draw it!) but basically that way you will retain any link juice as it comes through from google search.

      Well done putting this one out there!

      Hey oderdog!

      Can we connect? I'm coming out with a new product in just a moment on how to drive targeted traffic to your websites, and then also make money with it...

      If you like to "learn more about me" before you make a decision, check out https://hubpages.com/business/3-Easy-Ways-To-Drive...

      It's 1 hub I created, recorded and said why to create it and how to create it. This is just 1 module of 12 in the program, could you help out? I'll pay 75% commission with ClickBank, since you already have a hub on traffic it would be natural to put it here as a recommendation =)

If those impatient newbies would follow your tips, especially about writing for great content, they would get results faster than chasing a secret trick like backlinks (useful, but not a replacement for good writing) ...

    • Laura Schneider profile image

      Laura Schneider 4 years ago from Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, USA

      Thanks for your article! It was very helpful. However, I think that your suggestion #4 (tags/keywords) is no longer being used now on HubPages by individual users; it may be time to update this article. Obviously you still want to use relevant tags and keywords in the title and body of your articles, but the HubPages tool where you can add tags I think is, alas, no more; I think I read someplace that the keywords are generated behind-the-scenes based on your article contents. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Cheers! Keep up the good work!
