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.
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?
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.
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 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
OH! I also take time to submit my article link to reddit, pocket, and flipboard. All have shown promise
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
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?
Do you have an external blog that you link to your hubs? Do you write articles for an online magazine? And is it recommended to specialise in one or two areas - and connect a blog to these hub topics?I receive bursts of...
I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? ...
I was wondering if the traffic will increase if we link to other hubbers with hubs on related topics. Will google value the links from within HP ie .hubpages.com?? Without links our hubs are never going to rank on...
I recently had a hub un-featured for engagement, as the half-circle indicates. I think this is an unfair practice and should be eliminated entirely. Here's why I feel this way:Our hub traffic is often affected by the...
