    How to get more followers and traffic

      Write lots of excellent hubs about subjects that people are searching for. That's the only way. Don't waste too much time on trying to get followers. That will happen naturally.

      Start a Wordpress blog or website. I did. Traffic on HP was in the hundreds. Same articles on Wordpress site got thousands, as in over 100,000 per month and still growing. Income went through the roof as well. Google hates content farms and it's never coming back. You have to go where the money is.

      Hubs (articles) that answer questions people want to know about do fairly well. This is true for all forms of writing online - be it on HP or  a personal blog.

    It's not very easy to find interesting topics!

        Whilst I'm aware that there are ideas all around me, I have no idea how to "catch" them. It seems like they just fly above my head, until someone else catches them and writes about it. It seems so obvious then. Do you have any tips on how to "catch" them? smile

          So to create more creative posts, combine ideas that you see in the articles that you are reading.  You may see an article about romance for example and another about food.  So the article you could write is an article about foods that spark romance.

          Just write a lot, about whatever interests you. If it interests you, it will interest somebody else. Throw them at the wall and see what sticks.

    One must think outside of the box and be creative to have success here.

      Find what people are searching for in Google Trends.

        That's a good idea.  Thanks for giving us that tip.

      I find that using social media (twitter/facebook/pinterest/google+) all drive a great amount of traffic to my articles.  Also, writing quality articles that get moved to niche sites has show to be fruitful in traffic.  I also have a website.

      So what I do is, I publish my article, wait until it is featured (if you follow the Hubpage tutorials and tools, you should have no problem writing featured articles every time).  Once the article has passed the quality assessment and has its little featured hubpages icon near it in the "accounts" section, I begin to post the article everywhere.  I have twitter and facebook linked, so when I post to twitter, facebook is automatically updated.  For now, I'm having to go in and post to pinterest and google+ individually (it's worth it though, when I check my "traffic sources" section, I can see the fruits of my labor. 

      Then, I go onto my website, and in the articles section, I simply enter a new entry with the image of the article plus the small descriptive snippet that is with it.  I make the image a link to the actual article on hubpages or the niche site it is on.

      it sounds like a lot, but once you get your system down, it's not too bad.  If you want more traffic, you need to invest some creative effort and time into it.  The older my articles and various posts across the web get, the better my traffic gets smile  so, if you keep at it, a post and article will become well-seasoned and will begin to season well in regards to ranking on google.  My google traffic has most certainly seen an increase smile

      OH!  I also take time to submit my article link to reddit, pocket, and flipboard.  All have shown promise  smile 

      I hope that helps.  I wrote this fast, so I apologize if it is choppy. 

      You're more than welcome to visit my profile and check out my site and networks to get an idea of what I'm talking about smile

        one more note (and this I have found true for Hubpages and all of the other networking sites), if you want people to follow you, you need to follow.  It's like a universally understood and unsaid practice, "you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours."  You know what I mean?  smile 

        Best Wishes!

        Thank you. I'm just beginning with hubpages and I found your explanation very helpful. I'm going to start implementing your tips right now!

        This was very helpful.  Some of hubs are decreasing in traffic, so I am thinking of having my own website.  Thanks for the advice.

      Hi everyone,
      I thought the suggestions here very helpful because I sometime ask myself what I should write. I will visit Google Trend

      Write viral content on current topics and focus on their seo and also share them on social media.
