Any suggestions for increasing traffic? I am already using keywords tool and using social networking websites; facebook, twitter and google+. All of my hubs are even featured! Indexed by google! Low competition and high global monthly searches but still no traffic! I have also signed up for Redgage and Stumbleupon. Still I'm not recieving much trafiic, i mean the traffic is neglible! Help please! Thanks
Patience : ) It sounds like you are doing all the right things. Hubpages is not an overnight success. For many of us, it took 6 months to a year to figure out what we were doing. Some were faster than others.
I like to write hubs that answer questions. That helps get more traffic. Then develop legitimate backlinks, not ones for link sites like reddit, redgage, etc...
I am an active member of several forum communities and engage in discussions with other members and through that can attach links that drive traffic. If you just post with links without participating, people are less likely to read it because they think you are just spamming your links.
What is redgage and stumbleupon? I have not heard of those.
You've only been here 11 days. It'll take considerably longer than that to build a reputation with Google (which is where you should eventually get a bulk of your traffic.) Some of my hubs took months (and years for some) before they saw any decent traffic.
For now just work on making your hubs the best they can be and, of course, writing more hubs and the traffic will come.
And don't use RedGage.
Backlinks from there are worthless and, in addition to this, Google is starting to give backlink over-optimization penalties to sites and I bet RedGage is near the top of their their ****list, so it could potentially hurt you more than help. In terms of backlinks, your best bet is just to keep writing awesome content and let people link to you naturally.
well, thanks the anwers to this post were helpful for me as well.
My traffic recently climbed after I created a new poetry blog.
I am also active in LinkedIn, the social media community for professionals, and there are many writers there who are now viewing my work here in Hub Pages, since I joined Groups there related to writing.
Thirdly I am active on Pinterest, where I just discovered I have 120 followers now.
Finally I gain on average 5 to 8 followers a day on twitter. I am active where possible on the net, and the more I interact with the writing world, the more I see traffic and views of my work rise. These are most of what seems to be making my traffic climb or maintain it's level. It will always seem to rise and fall in the short term. Over the long term, it should rise.
You should try using tumblr. That site is awesome to build up huge traffic! What other types of traffic sources have you looked into?
I'm fairly new, and some of my hubs are getting pretty decent traffic relatively speaking...but I have very few comments, followers etc. although I have conversed with many people via comments.
No i get decent comments and i am gaining followers but my issue is traffic.
The main issue I see with your hubs is that the titles are either not the types of things people would search in Google, or subject matter that has already been extensively covered for years on the internet. Write a few hubs that have titles that would reflect the Google keyword searches of an average internet user. The best tool I have found to determine the best keywords and phrases is the Google Adwords keyword tool. Check it out!
Thanks NotPC but I am already using Google Adwords keyword tool
But again thanks for spotting out the title reason. But tell me one thing, should a title "include" keywords or should it be "entirely" made up of keywords. Should it be unique and interesting or just specific?
I actually have a Tumblr account and I have neglected it. You are right. Tumblr is awesome. I know a poet here on Hub pages and her Tumblr account is awesome and gets lots of bookmarks.
All those things help bring fresh pairs of eyes from outside Hub pages into the fold, and that is a win win situation for the whole community. This thread is awesome.
I also post most days on Facebook...if I think of it. But I like using social media and I like engaging with people about mainly poetry, books and writing. I stay within my area I know about, and so far it is okay.
Astra is right. Too many folks are searching for that elusive place on the Google top spot of their first page result. When in fact being constantly seen and mentioned and tweeted or liked in social media is the way to go. Staying visible and being read is the name of the game. Do that long enough and traffic will come automatically. But relevant, topical entertaining reading is a must. (Writing 50 hubs of crap won't get much traffic.)
If you are having trouble getting traffic to your hubs, try other more suitable social media. Blogs and social media are arguably better and more preferable than just submission of your url to a search engine, and the consequent long wait for approval.
Reddit and StumbleUpon are suitable for only certain kinds of web pages and information.
If the writing is of good enough quality, then your hubs or writing will become a talking point and the traffic will avalanche for you.
