I will give credit to my fellow hubber ReviewMeMedia for this. Remember that one of my hubs about anime hurt a lot of fan feelings. It did generate some traffic in facebook. Now I searched reddit for a fanbase and posted my anime there. I read the comments and I see a lot of angry tirades. But instead of ignoring, a lot visited by hub and ended up giving me money. It now has 500 views and still going up. Thanks for the views weebs (villanous laughs!)
Yes, writing on controversial topics is a good way to generate traffic and get comments.
And do you wonder why humans give so much attention to things they hate? Things that up-set them.
As for traffic, the more controversial the better.
Great that hub is doing well for you!
Thanks Endy and Poppyr. Well what matters most here are the profit and not the butthurt. Another thing, what I post was nothing controversial actually. It's about me criticizing a giant robot anime, and the fans got angry with me LOL.
Hahahaha......Maybe beheading the robot anime could give you a million view. Why not try that to see how the snowflakes jump all over your profile?
I may give that a try although I'm not a fan of poking the giant just for the sake of it.
A critical approach is probably better.
Hmm. This has potential. I shall wait until I am in the perfect mood. Between now and then, I'll let my subconscious work on selecting a victim.
Possibly not the sort of traffic that created ad earnings
Thanks everyone. And according to experiences fanboys are easy to offend. You don't need provocative topics to enrage them. Just say your hero sucks and they will mob your article
This was actually the funniest thing I read today. So apart from earning money, sparkling ideas and "offending" fanboys and fangirls, you are also spreading smiles and laughter. What a multipurpose thread this was.

Most of my hubs are innocuous--quotes about happiness, grammar tips, history. but sometimes I write on a controversial subject. Recent I wrote about atheism and theism. It was objective reporting about ad campaigns. I am fine with people leaving either positive or negative comments, but is it...

Maybe it's just me, but when I write about something which may bring about a huge amount of conversation, I consider it to be a waste of time to limit the response it may garner. I had the courage to put my words out there, I'll have the courage to leave the words of others out in the public...

I'm just wondering about traffic and comments for my hubs.My traffic is okay, I have no complaints. What I'd really like to know is why I don't get many comments in comparison to how many followers I have and how many views my hubs get. I really enjoy the comment aspect of...

Is using social networks to increase my traffic against the Terms of Service on Hubpages and does it affect my HP Program in any negative way?

I am really new and I am confused with so many ways to gain traffic. Can I know how I can set up a foundation for my hubs traffic?
