    Getting traffic is extremely hard to accomplish.

    I've been with hubpages for 5 weeks now and have a grand total of 8 hubs, 2 fans/followers, and 291 views. I have made about enough to buy a scoop of icecream with adsense and a big fat 0 with amazon ( ive only made 3 hubs that actually contain amazon capsules). If could ask someone like jimmythejock a.k.a hubpages first ever hubber a question, i would ask him if it was like this when he first started AND how long it took before the traffic really got good.

    jimmythejock is not HubPages' first ever Hubber.

    The first user to ever register with the site is Paul Deeds, the site's General Manager.

    And based on my own experiences over the last four years, it takes about a year to get going and another to truly get profitable unless you are an experienced writer who is familiar with building revenue via web content.

    There are two ways to get traffic. One is by participating in the niche in which you are writing hubs and second write hubs that will promote on their own. You've to do a bit promotion at first but later on it will bring some traffic to you.Keep writing and build some backlinks, ask other for links in your niche and also build non-organic links on your own by using other blogs.

    Does "niche" mean the subjects that you know most about?

    Patience James. I think you're doing very well, better than me. I've been here for a couple of months, but it's not all about that. It takes time. Keep writing good Hubs, create back links, learn from other Hubbers and the traffic will eventually come.

    In the meantime, check out the forums. Many of your questions are answered there. Also, subscribe to the topic of "Hubs about Hubs". You'll find lots of Hubs about how to write better Hubs and how to build traffic.

    I hope this helps, but patience my fellow Hubber, patience.
