    Frankly: no.

    I am happy to give advice to people who have made an effort, and are asking more specific questions.

    Based on the title of this thread, I thought you were going to list them off instead of ask what they are.

    Rats.

    Add the string "?multiply_earnings=times100" at the end of the url in the address bar when you are viewing your earnings, then hit the enter key 10 times really fast. It multiplies your monthly earnings by 100.

    When you are creating a new hub, add "SET_SCORE_99=true" at the end of your title. Your hub will bypass QAP and automatically get a score of 99.

        QAP raters are going to wonder why there's a sudden influx of articles titled SET_SCORE_99=true.

                As a coincidence, each of my hubs also has a secret to $ucce$$.  Oh wait, I don't want to get banned like LongTimeMother for suggesting anyone read hubs.

                    Temporarily, for starting a thread to encourage others to read hubs written by another user who was facing some difficulties.

              Hubs giving instructions on icing cupcakes with mint toothpaste frosting are extremely hot with Google right now. Those keywords pay even more than mesothelioma.

                Interesting.  I heard about about a man who got so rich from that method he had to fake his own death to keep handout-seekers at bay.

    Share hubs and the photos on them with Pinterest. It is as popular now as Twitter and almost as popular as Facebook.

    Lots of Facebook users who are promoting their hubs are turning to Pinterest.

    Any hubs that you have in groups can be inserted in similar groups in Pinterest and they are called boards. Basically we should all be using Pinterest more. We should be making the hubs more graphic or art-related of photo-friendly. Pinterest can provide a link-back to the hub where the picture came from.

    Use more social networks and social media to help promote your hubs. Also recommend hubs to others by word of mouth by email. Add your hub address url to the signature of your emails, and have it visible on your blog.

    Make a blog. Then make dinner. LOL. tongue

      Oh oh, it looks like someone followed this advice too closely. We are now banned from Pinterest.  We all need to make sure that when we share our hubs on any social networking site, we are doing it in a way that is respectful to that site and its followers.  Don't spam.

    I know a secret! It is simply to write tons and tons of quality hubs. It's a numbers game. If the average hub makes 10c a month, the more you have the merrier. This is a true fact.....it's a massive amount of hard work, but this is how many of the top hubbers did it and this is how anyone can do it. Plus, you might get lucky with a viral one somewhere in there....though I don't know any secrets about those.

      It's funny (and a bit sad) that so many new hubbers pop up in the forums demanding to know how to get rich with only a couple of hubs behind them.

      From the title of the thread I too expected to be presented with some new, mind-boggling ways of getting vast amounts of traffic and earnings, but as you said unfortunately it does come down to hard work, patience, the ability to learn and weather the ups and downs. Oh and I think there is also a little luck involved - sometimes you write a hub that takes off for no good reason you can see and sometimes you can do all your keyword research but it still doesn't pull any traffic.

      Sighs and returns to perusing long list of hubs that need writing!

        Suzanne Dayposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        Well I must admit, I liked the idea of getting rich quick myself 3 years ago. But what I learned on the way is that you actually need to do lots of writing. That's the only sure fire way to guarantee an increased income of any kind. Of course, it varies from person to person due to their keywords, writing style etc etc.

    Being creative is important and by that I mean, you must talk about something people are interested in. In these day and times, it's all about followers. The more followers you have, the more money you can make. Finding something that interest you as well is important, so that you'll enjoy discussing it. Be creative!

      But remember, when a follower on Hubpages reads your hub you receive no money for it. How you get followers from elsewhere I don't know. You have to be really good.

    The only secret I know is that if you delete hubs, their traffic counts are lost from your lifetime totals.

    *eyes certain long-delayed milestones in my accolades sadly*

    That's not the kind of secret you're lookng for, however.

      "The only secret I know is that if you delete hubs, their traffic counts are lost from your lifetime totals."

      I did not know that. So why would a hub ever be deleted? Even if it's bad, you can still make it better, right?

        If a hub has about 200 page views in a year (almost all of those from HP followers), and does not respond to edits, it is time to hit the delete button.
