I'm new to Hubpages and posted my first hub just 2 days ago. It's featured and I've had 22 views. Is there any way other than being featured to promote a hub?
Welcome to HubPages.
The best way to get traffic is to write quality articles that people want to read about but aren't easily available on the web. Be sure to use good SEO - using proper keywords.
Once the article is written, you can promote it using Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, and other social networks. You have to be careful to actually participate on these sites and not simply spam them.
The Learning Center has more information about how to use these sites:
Also, remember to periodically update your Hubs and lable all your images with good titles that you think people will search for on the internet. After several months you can even change Hub categories and republish with your new updates.
In addition to what ‘Millionaire Tips‘ said also . . . doing what you just did here (asking a question) is a good way to get noticed . . . ask questions, answer questions, post on the forum, comment on other hubs, follow people whose writing you like or find interesting are all ways to increase your presence and will drive some traffic to your writing.
Hi cblumenstock, welcome to HubPages. Scott, brblog and Millionaire Tips have all given you great advice. I only just started promoting my hubs on Pinterest recently and I've been happy with that choice. I should have started with that earlier. Good luck with your plans.

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?

What is your opinion on people who join in Hubpages just to promote something?When I Hub Hop, I often encounter overly promotional Hubs. And when you visit the Hubber's profile, you'll only see 1 or 2 posts, and both are used to promote something (i.e. their products, etc). What's your view on this?

I didn't think this was allowed and it is rather annoying spamming a link to one article every couple hours.
