That is a good question. I am not certain of all of the in's and out's of how things work with the Internet and I am certain that the only people how know work for the search engines.
But, I am certain that hub pages can help drive traffic to your blog.
This is what I would do.
First, make certain that your blog is focused on just one topic. If you have more than one topic per blog you risk confusing your market as well as the search engines.
Second, make sure that you have a good understanding of how keyword placement works.
Third, sue the same keywords here on Hub Pages that you have on your blog.
This will provide you with backlink to your blog from a website with an Alexa score of 207 at this very moment.
Forth, become active with in the Hub community. It helps to make some friends here and there. This may help get you readership and maybe some people will even help promote your website through their own tweets or articles by linking to yours.
Remember that your well written articles are like a fine wine, they need to mature.
The older your work becomes the more you will be read.
Fifth, be certain to tweet on Twitter your new article each time you write one and it does not hurt to re-tweet it every now and then either. This can help with getting you indexed too.
I have several Hubs about these topics. I only write about what I have personally experienced in these matters and I know to be factual .
I would suggest following my example simply because it has worked great for me. But then again I am just one man and there is still much I need to learn.
Here are links to 2 of the Hubs you should benefit from the most.
