Tips on HubPages # 5 - Reconnect and Link Your Orphaned Hubs for Better Viewership and Feedback

Updated on October 18, 2011

With more than 400 hubs under my sleeves after two years of hubbing (and counting more) I am now aware of the importance on reconnecting and linking my orphaned hubs for better viewership and feedback.

I came across with the term 'orphan' as I edit the hubs that I bookmarked for certain topics that I am concentrating on and from there, I get the idea or re-editing the title of my hubs for better results at the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) department of Google and other search engines the I associated with my browser (Mozilla or Google Chrome or Internet Explorer).

If you can follow the tips I've been writing here on HubPages, I have the same title of "Tips on HubPages #---". You will notice that I always associate this pre-title for my succeeding topics.

If you will search that pre-title, you will came across with my hubs on the Search Engine you're using. You can either select the latest or the oldest of my hub series with that beginning title thread for your readings.

Why 'orphan hubs'?

Hubpages Staff and Management truly care for the welfare of the hubbers and for our hubs as well, in order to surface at the SEO.

With that kind of term, we are urge to collate, regroup and identify the hubs we are publishing into specific topics.

I am calling it advocacies on my part. I also read and commented other advocacies of hubbers I came across with.

Reorganizing and linking my hubs with the same theme or topic is easy. You can do it by reviewing your account and begin the process.

Regrouping your Orphaned Hubs

Before I turn two years on HubPages, I am having problem with the scores, both hubs and profile.

Now that I re-edited both my profile and sole of my hubs, my average score floats between 90 and 96.

It's still good for me because I am not so active these days because of personal commitments that I am dealing with.

Although, you will notice that I'm just adding hubs on this particular series, I'm still collating date on my other advocacies like: Travel and Places, Book Review, Tropical Cooking, Music Series, Trivialities in Life, Politics Watch and the like.

I also noticed that HubPages Elites are also doing the same with their hubs, starting it with a particular AdWord that is common with the majority of their hubs. I don't have to namedrop their names, but we can take their works as our guide in order to be successful on HubPages.

When you re-edit the title of your hubs, you can also make a particular tracker on those sets of hubs so that it will also generate traffic for monetization on Google AdSense.

Then you can add the capsule for Link and select some of your works, so that it will show on your hub together with other works of other hubbers who have the same topic of yours.

It's not so difficult to do this. We just don't have to be afraid to try something useful to make our hubs surface during the 'searching of topics' by online readers.

My technique may not be successful to you overnight, but it will have a steady flow of traffic because of the pre-title you've chosen that will be the mark of your particular topic that you started as series.

Topics that may also be beneficial to others are usually about Health, Foods, Jobs and Beauty Tips.

So, what are you waiting for, you can try my technique if you want a steady flow of passive income on HubPages (travel_man1971, Oct. 18, 2011).

      @carol7777: Thank you for appreciating my suggestion. Since last year, I've been doing this to all my hubs. Thankfully, I've been receiving feedback on all of my latest hubs.

      @thesailor: Yes, I agree. If you have the same topic or subject as in travel and places or seafaring, you never need to add a pre-title unless it's a series of seafaring stories.

      @Arian Rey: Copyright is the most disputed thing here on HubPages, although we just take it for granted. With so many hubbers contributing their articles, we cannot avoid having the same ideas.

      Individual titles are my concentration for now. Maybe, I'll try your technique one of these days.

      Whoa! All my hubs are orphaned travel man. Anyways, the majority of it is about seafaring, so I don't need the pre-title. Maybe my profile alias as the sailor will stand out as my hubs about seafaring are being searched.

      Great having your advocacy being noticed, travel man. Yes, I agree, it's like having your copyright on it. It will also help online users to search related articles easier that having to look for the appropriate word for your hubs.

      Thank you for these useful tips. I am now going back over my earlier written hubs and trying to improve them, making them more reader friendly. Now I will see how I can improve some titles.
