    Hi,

    I am new to Hub Pages and my first hub got published , here is the URL :
    <link snipped>

    Now I want to ask how I can promote it ?

    My second question is if I have to promote my Hub to get traffic then why not I should create my blog and promote it ? I mean what are the benefits of Hub Pages over own blog ?

      Hubpages has good authority in Google and gets a lot of traffic. Smaller sites/blogs generally don't have that advantage; Hubs tend to get ranked higher in search engine results. Also, pay is usually better here because you get paid per impression as opposed to per click like many ad programs.

      Best way to get traffic is optimized keywords/keyphrases. Some promotion on Pinterest and Facebook can help.

    I would also suggest whatever path you take you write on another topic.  There are a gazillion articles, hubs, etc already out there on "ways to make money from home" and this topic is never going to rank well or make money for you in all likelihood due to the vast amount already written on the subject and massive competition.  You should write about niches that are less competitive that you have personal experience with and can bring passion and expertise to.

      Yes, you are right. This is why I have shared URL of my hub in the top so that I can get some advice from experts but unfortunately "<link snipped>".

      I have little knowledge about how to make money doing freelancing and I have been earning from quite sometime via freelancing so I have written about my experience.

      But as you said there is massive competition and I tried to find some low competition niches but failed in it. I would appreciate if you can help me in this ? If have written something related to finding niches please share it with me I would really love to read it.

        The first thing is to consider what you are good at - I'll take one of my hobbies for example: soap making.  I am passionate about it, have a lot of experience, know a lot of useful information.  Are there several soapmaking sites/articles out there? Yes, but I have different perspectives and experiences to share.  Also, I can start to whittle down from the broad topic of "soap making" and go to more niche topics people are searching for when they want to know how to make soap.  For example "where to find ingredients" or "how to make x and such type soap" or "easy soap project for beginners" etc. you get the idea.

        I create those hubs, then I link them together and I create awesome made for pinterest graphics and share them and then sit tight. 

        You may be good at say computers - rather than write about computers in general, perhaps you fixed a hardware problem yourself and you could do a hub "How to fix your xandsuch computer part yourself"  you get the idea. 

        It's not so much about focusing on keywords as it is about sharing excellent, helpful information.  When you do this naturally, the keywords are going to appear naturally in your writing.  I can't write a hub on how to make soap for example without many of the "keywords" appearing naturally throughout the piece. 

        When you create your title and subtitles that's the area to consider actual search phrases.  What are people searching for and how is your hub going to answer their question or solve their problem?  Instead of a broad topic like freelancing narrow ti down more to something more specific.  "How I Created a Successful Lemonade Stand" etc vs "How to be a successful freelancer"...

        Hope this helps.

    Hi Albert,

    It would be really hard for someone to actually tell you what you can write about. It's best you decide yourself as you'll be the one to write. Also it's very important to write on a topic  you are knowledgeable about.
    If you have a lot of ideas and are not too sure which one to go for, try and break them down and choose the one you love the most. That way, it'll be easier to get inspirations. I find it very hard to write about a subject I know little or nothing about. Good luck...

    I detail the method I use to determine whether a niche is right for me or not in my hub, 8 Tips To Make Content Worth Sharing. It is partly determined by one's expertise and partly determined by how readers respond to one's writing on a particular topic. I write on a wide variety of topics that I can either claim some expertise in or have some unusual enthusiasm for. Then I let readers show me which topics I should write more about based on what they share.

      How do you know a certain has small niche and less people have wrote about the topic?

      1. Kylyssa profile image95

        Put your tight niche topic into Google. For example, a niche topic might be  Kosher Chocolate Treats for Passover. Put Kosher Chocolate Treats for Passover into Google search and make note of how many results there are. Or you could sign up for Google Analytics and use their tools for evaluating keywords.

        It's fairly easy to find out if a topic has been overdone to death just by seeing how many articles on the topic have been written.

        Choose something within your expertise that there just doesn't seem to be too much written about out there. If you are an auto-mechanic, choose some aspect of auto-mechanics you see too few articles about. If you are a comic book enthusiast, figure out what sort of comic book articles there just don't seem to be enough of out there.

    You can promote your hub through Google+, Pinterest, Twitter and Fb. Well, that is how I do it.

    I will advise you to write on something you really passionate about, something which you always talk about or think. That would be a money making hub for you, believe me.
    Good luck for future smile

    On the financial side, one GREAT advantage is that you do not have to pay for hosting, a theme, or domain--in other words, use a degree of startup capital. For Hubpages, time and effort are the only required investments. smile
