I am organically adding my hubs to these sites:
Reddit (need to research this as I have had problems wit this site before)
Twitter (via Hootsuite free version 10 scheduled tweets a day)
Facebook (I'm not really active here to be honest)
As A tip I found it a great help to have ll my Hubs in Excel, then I can add description, keywords, etc and submit to the above sites easily. My strategy to avoid obvious self-promotion is to also add other peoples works and other sites on the internet and the mix mine with those.
Am I missing any key social platforms here?
I've been directed to Instragram for photos as well.
You could promote business related hubs to LinkedIn.
add in linkedin and redgage, i also share at those sites you had mentioned
If you are adding links to your hubs on these sites, then what you're doing is not organic. Just wanted to make that point. Organic would be people happen to find your Hub and post it somewhere...naturally.
At any rate, Pinterest is pretty good, as far as a site you haven't mentioned. I don't trust doing the social media thing too much (the search engine likes natural, not contrived), but thought I'd throw Pinterest out there, it can be effective.
Also, I personally wouldn't use Reddit. They'll ban you quick if you're promoting your own work. Unless you can somehow fit it into a subreddit of people really interested in a subject you write about.
promotion businnes related perfectly at social media,ho many people connected on there
Pinterest gives good traffic almost all the time, whatever hubs I put up there.
Do you use these sites just for promoting or you spend some of your free-time there as well?
I focus on a small number of social media sites, actually use them, build a following, and share with them only things I feel will interest them. I also do this predominantly for my pen name where I have actual books to sell with high profit margins. For content I do not feel the cost/benefit ratio for driving traffic works out.
I have a clever plan of promoting my hubs and playing games on Facebook. How it works: I pick a game that i like, spend some time playing it, then look up the community for this game. There are always tons of people requesting "Add me as a friend" to play the game together. This is such a simple way to get the audience. I think i got 50 Facebook friends in couple of days, just by adding random people to my friend list. Once this number gets big enough i will start sharing my hubs with this group. By the way - my Facebook playing account is not my real account. Its separate, just for games.
I know that this is not for everyone, some people do not enjoy playing games. But for those who do its a good chance to promote your hubs. I hope this helps new hubbers
What if I didnt use any promotion sites. What would happen then? Would a hub become like "dead" and not noticeable by search engines? Or it would start raising in those engines slowly?
