    This is pretty cool, just waiting for my second hub to be approved.

    Anyone know of any good guides to get more traffic to their hubpages, or do people rely on organic traffic?

    Also, is amazon affiliate items on articles a good idea?

      Good job on starting up on hub pages, its challenging but a worth wile endeavor. Keep it up

      Also amazon wouldn't hurt but from what I have seen don't expect much from amazon unless you are writing a review

        You can write about the beach and sell surfboards.

      Organic traffic is the way to go. Make sure you use the Google Keyword tool and target low competition keywords with high searches. I am learning all the time on this but it brings you traffic without having to spend all your time promoting your hubs via social sites. Read other's hubs by all means but don't spend all your time doing it. The way to get traffic is to publish on topics people want to read.

        Cheers, thats good advice.  I actually have micro niche finder, but didn't use it for the first two articles I have done as was still trying to get to grips with hubpages.

        I think I have some decent ideas for my next posts though.

    Congrats on your efforts mate...  smile

    For directing traffic... I found that by putting big signs and arrows up at major intersections throughout the world... I had a great response initially but was later sued for causing 8667 traffic accidents!  sad

    Welcome to hub pages and congrats on he second hub. Organic traffic is great, but it will sometimes take a while to get started. So I found pinging to the search engines is a good way to speed up listing with them, just search for google ping and then promote on a few social networking sites like twitter and FB. that is usually enough to get the ball rolling. Amazon is hit and miss. I have sold 6 books in 10 months so only made $5 odd in commission. Don't expect big sales unless you write a big money review and get lucky with a sale.
    Good luck!

      Thanks for the advice.  I have a pinger, and I also have a 14500 ish follower twitter account.  Facebook is only just started but have around 160 followers so far.  I will try promoting that way abit once I get some quality posts done on hubpages.

    Congrats on the second hub, you are already on a good start with the username you chose, as I see that you write about tech stuff.  Just a little hint as soon as you publish a hub make sure you add it to your profile spotlight asap as well as any groups you have created, this way your new article can at least be viewed by fellow hubbers that visit your profile to help ensure that your article gets featured.  Daisydayz is correct that organic traffic can take a while to get  you can also submit your RSS  feed (yourUserName.hubpages.com/hubs/latest?rss) to google as a sitemap and it will help google index your articles faster.  Of course there is a lot more advice which you can get from reading my articles, which I gotta get writing more of. I don't have micro niche finder, nor have I used it, but if you are seeing a steady flow of traffic from the keywords it provided for your first article and the visits are quality visits organic traffic from your target market should increase.
