I would be very appreciative if anyone would care to share their tips on promoting your hubs.
Welcome, Claire! In addition to asking questions in the forums, I highly suggest you drop by the HubPages Learning Center: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/contents
The LC contains detailed how-to guides and protips on all-things HubPages and the "How to Protect and Promote Your Personal Brand" section sounds like a great starting point for you.
Hi Claire! Welcome to HubPages. The most important thing to do initially is take advantage of all the free advice that other Hubbers provide regarding what they've learned at HubPages. I wrote a Hub called "Using a Hub Milestone to Make Hubs More Searchable and Accessible" that runs down what I learned over my first year at HubPages and how to promote Hubs. You can avoid a lot of beginner mistakes by reading these types of Hubs.
Have a promotional procedure in place regarding where you post backlinks to your Hubs after publishing them. I have a list of sites I post to, such as Facebook, StumbleUpon, and RedGage. Twitter appears to be very effective for promoting Hubs, but I don't use it.
Also, look for forums that are related to the topic your Hub is about, and see if you can post a backlink in the comments, as long as it makes sense to do so.
One thing I like to do with new hubs is share them across all the social media I can. It's not a long term promotion strategy, but it helps them get off to a quick start.
One way is by using the correct amount of SEO, keywords and constantly keeping your Hubs updated, updated, updated.
SEO keywords are basically the key words and phrases in your hub content that make it possible for people to find your hub via search engines
Welcome to HubPages, Claire!
As someone already said, social media is a great way to get your hubs out there. These days there are so many sites for sharing that you can get some decent traffic.
Hey Claire, nice to make your acquaintance. I would say that you have the right background just looking at your profile in SEO and digital management. I think you know what to do in terms of promotion. Just make sure you're on FB, twitter, wordpress, all the heavy hitters promoting your stuff. There's also a hubpages writers forum on FB that I'm a part of that could be helpful to promote what you have.
A very big key in terms of help would be to network with as many hubbers as possible. Make sure you're commenting back if they comment and reading and commenting on theirs and promoting and sharing! Like for example, to make sure more of my friends know who you are...I'm going to be sharing this forum post so you can gain more exposure darlin. God bless, have a good one.
Sorry Claire. I forgot to whom I was speaking to about SEO. :-)
Ill tell you what they told me... something about a panda, a penguin I think... Do something with reddit, or webcrawler, something, something QAP. Just keep all that in mind. You'll have huge success.
Guest blogging is also a great way to gain a backlink or two. You simply write a guest post of 500 - 700 words and add one to two links. Doing this on websites with high traffic each day should promote your hubs a lot. However, the best way for me to get traffic is search traffic. As your area is SEO, use that to your advantage.
Just to add something else...A popular place where you can learn about blogs that need guest posts, is My Blog Guest. You need to sign up first for free and then you get a wealth of information about blogs that want guest posts. I found it useful.
Just to add something else... If you are struggling to find blogs that need guest posts, try 'My Blog Guest'. I found it very useful.

I've rather neglected my Hubpage account. I have 17 hubs (2 Editor's Choice and 15 Featured) and I just let them tick over. I had thought that Hubpages was in long-term decline but just recently I checked out Quancast - https://www.quantcast.com/hubpages.com To get the best overview, select...

Are HP merely just creating new niche sites and hoping Google will pick them up? or are they actively promoting the sites in the wider world of the niche the site is based on?

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...
