Hello, fellow Hubbers! I still consider myself fairly new here. I made one hub four months ago and just created my second one today. I have not really hubbed since, due to no traffic coming through. Does anyone have any advice on how I can get some traffic going on my page?
There are several ways, not the least of which is to post on the forums If you post more often here, more people will click to view your profile and read your hubs. Additionally, reading hubs written by other people helps a lot. Read, comment, and fan people. You might get some reciprocal fans, but I recommend not becoming a fan of anybody if you don't actually like their work. Otherwise you'll get spammed with all of their updates.
Join twitter, tweet your hubs. E-mail to friends, dig, reddit, etc. You need to actively market your hubs, especially in the beginning, if you're going to have much luck.
Also, having a high author score doesn't hurt. I know that there are those who disagree with me, but there are folks who go to the main page and look at the top hubbers and read their hubs first (or only). Having a higher score ensures that you're close to the top!
Don't stop writing new hubs because your first one(s) got no traffic.
A hub that consists of nothing but polls is technically *not* a "hub" because it has no content or graphics.
Try writing longer hubs, with the text spread over several text capsules, with *relevant* photos or images to go with them.
Add *relevant* videos from YouTube or the other vid sites Hubpages supports.
Read other hubbers' hubs and study how they look and why they get more than a few comments.
Hang in there!
Yes, content is important, too. Without content the search engines won't find you!

Hi fellow Hubbers! I've been hubbing here at HubPages since year 2010 and I just can't believe that I haven't earn anything from my published articles since then, not a single cent! There's obviously something wrong. Any ideas? Please help! Thanks.

In the few years that I have been on this site, I have heard that you can increase traffic by picking short titles. I have also read that you can get traffic by choosing a long title and including many search phrases in your title, and also by picking long titles that are specific for a...
