Hi, I was wondering if anyone could give me any tips on some website or some website to advertising my hub pages I have interest and credit they aren't working for me to be honest. I probably haven't use them right but if you can could you help me out with getting traffic from other websites. I also use StumbleUpon, but I don't see traffic as much. Please help me and also give me some other websites that advertise and give free traffic to my blog
I think you need to read the works of other hubbers on this particular niche. A hubbie score of 18, is a wake up call. You might need to spruce up your hubs first before thinking of getting enough traffic.
First, HubPages is not a blog. On a blog, you write posts. People come and read one post and then browse around your other posts. They may sign up to be notified when you write new posts, or sign up for your newsletter.
On HubPages, you write individual magazine-quality articles. Even though you've got a profile and all your articles are listed there, 90% of your readers will read just ONE of your articles and then browse around the related articles at the end of the Hub (which are probably not by you). That's not necessarily a bad thing because of course, YOUR Hubs appear on other people's Hubs too, so you benefit in reverse.
Secondly, you've been here two weeks and have only a handful of articles. Writing on HubPages is a long-term investment and it can take months to build a decent amount of traffic. An experienced online writer once said to me "What you write today will make real money NEXT year".
Unfortunately I think that's a problem for you. If you're writing about new products then your articles will get out of date quickly, so you don't have that time. You are in a very competitive field and I think you'd be better off with your own review blog. If you can build up a reputation as a reliable authority, then when you post new material it will get traffic much faster.
The biggest challenge for people who opt to write about your topics is that the topic is massively competitive.
Do you go looking for tips on the big gaming sites, or do you look up game info by seeking out a brand- new writer on a non-gaming site?
Netflix may be new in Australia, but why would a user need to read your Hub versus just going to the Netflix site itself?
Hub authors need to create compelling content: info that people need and cannot find anywhere else. That's how you get traffic.
Also, it takes months and many dozens of featured Hubs for most people to build up their traffic. You've only been on HubPages for two weeks and it only looks like two Hubs are featured.
