Have a facebook? You a hubber? Here are some goods ways to generate traffic to your hubs through facebook!
<snipped link-please do not promote hubs in the forum>
I get a reasonable amount of traffic from Facebook, but it has not been from buyers. I find social bookmarking to be useful for developing an online presence, but not for directly creating income.
I also find the bookmarking sites to be annoying. I do not want to kick, lick or do anything else to my visitors and find it all a bit silly.
Three is a substantially-sized Hubber FaceBook group already, but I don't think FaceBook is generating much traffic for us overall.
I'd be intrigued by how much traffic your getting from Facebook. I've been actively adding links and sharing with friends now for months and have only had 349 visits, and I get 1500pv a day.
I guess the more friends you have the better, but you need loads of content too.
@johnb - What % of your traffic is from FB? And from that could you give me a rough estimate of the kind of earning you have made from it?
Most of us here are looking for qualified traffic, i.e. traffic that wants to spend money.
You can generate huge traffic from Stumbleupon, for instance, but Stumblers never click on ads. If you have a large network on Facebook, I imagine you could get some decent traffic too - but once again, I suspect they're not the kind of readers who would click on ads (unless they think they're doing you a favour by clicking, in which case they can even create trouble for you).
So why is your hub on the subject entitled, "Making Money on Hubpages Through Facebook"?
I never get much traffic from anything I've posted on Facebook and am not keen on the site because of all the rubbish mail you are bound to get there although I am told some people think it's a lot of fun! They must have a lot more time on their hands than me!
Because when you get traffic to your hubs, people click on the ads which you then make money. You look like an expert, you should know this.
Also, not all traffic clicks on the ads, only targeted one does. You as a Facebook expert surely know this
So your saying that people on Facebook aren't interested in the ads? How do you know? Are YOU an expert?
I am not writing hubs about making money on HP through FB just yet, and don't pretend to be an expert in FB. When I will, I will be able to defend what I write
And of course I do not break forum rules by posting promotional links - yes I am an expert in this
Face book is where I connect with old friends and a few new ones ... When I post a link to a hub on facebook, I see a spike in traffic on that hub and sometimes a few others over the next day or two. The question, for me, is not is it profitable, but do my friends actually read what I write. A lot do, and sometimes we talk about it.
90% of my facebook friends are people I've met over the years in real life.
90% of my Hubpages friends are people I only know from hub pages
Money? Nah, neither makes me any money. But it is interesting!
(As far as I can tell, the only one who makes any money at this is Mark)
Misha does OK too - but I don't think either of us are too impressed with a newbie writing a hub about how to make money from facebook visits
Especially one who loves police scanners, teaches you how to be a real christian, adds links to hubs on subjects he know FA about and doesn't even have a facebook link on his user page.
Yeah. In the hub I didn't say you would ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY make money, its just a way to generate traffic. I would change the name, but the url would stay the same . Although technically it wouldn't make any difference if I renamed the hub Getting Traffic to Your Hubs Through Facebook because traffic is what generated money. I don't care how many times you call me a "newbie" or not an expert, but I know about Hubpages through Facebook because people I know have talked to me about my hubs and like them. I may not be an expert (even though my ranking is LOL ), but I do know how to generate traffic to hubs through facebook!
Come on then - what is your facebook profile? This is mine -
This is Misha's:

I don't know why I need this (LOL) but I added yall as friends
Then surely your hub is deceptively titled...
Mark - Just wanted to say I like your hub on getting your hub to be on Google's first page. Its informative and very intelligent. Good Job!
All I did was put a URL to my profile here on my Facebook profile and it has generated a good many views. Maybe it is just my wife looking but page views is how we eventually make some money here. (Of course, she will never buy anything) And I got the idea from the original hub discussed here. So I for one say thanks.
Ok, well then perhaps you can answer my first question, how much traffic have you seen off Facebook? What % is it of your overall page views, and what does that equal in money terms through Adsense?
I'm just intrigued to see if other people have a similar conversion ratio to mine.
Oh, and even if the URL stays the same, it would surly look better if you changed the title.
35% from facebook is huge compared to my 0.3%. What's your overall page views though? 35% of 1000 is ok, 35% of 100,000 is awesome.
right, similar to me, I've had 359 from facebook, out of a total of 123,057, you can see why I don't rank facebook to highly.
Ha, thats true. I guess its because I promote my hubs A LOT over facebook. I don't have a blog or a website, so Facebook is pretty much all I got! Lol
I don't have a blog or website tp promote from either. There are plenty of places to promote, Digg, Stumbleupon, Mixx etc etc. And don't forget relevant forums either, all traffic helps after all.
Digg is a social bookmarking site that allows you to list your sites, blogs and hubpages.

Are you making money on Hubpages, according to you expectations?I'd like to think that everyone wanting to make money online and joining HubPages for that reason would have a target for earnings on HP. Have managed to achieve that amount of earnings since joining HP?

What with all the "how much money can you make here?" questions. I have decided to share some of my own experiences. Clearly there are higher paying pages than others, but as far as adsense goes, these are my three highest earning hubs this month:http://hubpages.com/hub/Foreclosure-Lis...

What are your best tips for making money on HubPages?
by sam24354 4 years ago
I have just started, so I dont expect it in the near future, but how many hubs, or how many months before you start making money? How much traffic is considered to be good traffic? Right now I am getting about an average of 75 hits per day on 4 hubs. Is that good? What...
