Do you write more or promote more?
Joining a wide variety of bookmarking sites takes a long time, and then one keeps seeing ones one hadn't yet heard of. Is it worth taking the time to do a bit of research on which ones would work best for marketing your articles, joining a lot of them, and actually bookmarking each new article to all of them? Or is more worthwhile to just get on with writing?
I question this too. My plan is basically to get to a certain point in months. It depends how much earning potential you want. If you write a lot of hubs then you should give less promotion cause you have more hubs. If you are only intending to have a few hubs then promotion needs to be high.
I think if you want to go in a moderate amounts write a hub frequently and send a few backlinks.
I haven seen people with just a few hubs make a lot of money,BUT they sent like 100 backlinks to sites and a lot of sites are not that good and thats very time consuming and it does not even involve writing.
I think the best thing to do is write more, but do not neglect back linking entirely. You can write forever, but promoting forever is just spam and is not more content.
Hope this helps. I am still wondering where I'll be in a couple months.
I tend to write as much as I can, but since HubPages are not the only place I write it seems like I don't have much hubs, while in fact I have hundreds.
I say you can't expect to have traffic and earn something unless you promote your articles, although I would love to simply write that is impossible. I have 4 or 5 bookmarking sites which I have invested time in. So I have plenty of followers there that read my updates all the time, digg, stumble upon, twitter, etc. While I have a profile in over 50 bookmarking sites.
I expect that the bookmarking sites I invested time to comment and reach out are giving me traffic, which they are, and I expect the rest to serve as backlinks that help me in the SEO way and also help me get each of my pages indexed in a matter of hours and also to get ranked well
You need to have both, if you are expecting to get your hubs read only by fellow hubbers than you can just write, but that will not make you money. In order to make money you need traffic from outside sources, so you must promote each and every hub, that is how it goes.
I usually write a few hubs and then promote. Promoting takes a lot time, but you have to otherwise there is no one visiting my hubs.
Haven't really given much thought to self-promotion and making money from Hubpages. I realize a lot of Hubbers do. I simply like to write. I'm into answering questions, placing stuff already written in My Docs (essays, etc.) or simply coming up with new stuff as the mood takes me. I've around 120 hubs up, but have put about 20% of them in the "Not Published" box. I was advised by a fellow Hubber to do this to keep my Score up.
The accreditations and kudos (logos) are a vanity thing which I'd only recently become aware of. Nice to have all those icons up there. But I doubt they mean a great deal when it comes to using Hubpages as a revenue maker. For those who are into that, I wish you well.
I have been at this for just around 3 weeks! I write content and then do a couple of days worth of promotions. Like many others I have one main site and then use places like Hubpages to post articles and hopefully attract interested readers to my main site. Through my promotions I manage 500 or so page views a day and the number is steadily growing! I expect 1,000 daily page views after another solid week of rigorous work! Good luck! It's tedious, but you can get decent traffic and w/o spending money, just time!

I've heard that social bookmarking sites like digg, reddit and stumbleupon are a great way to generate a ton of traffic fast. I haven't tried them though... Is it against HubPages rules to do so?

How many social bookmarking sites do you use to draw traffic to your hubs?What sites do you use to promote your hubs and which of them draw the best traffic?

Does having many hubs count much to gaining more income in HP? I wonder how some hubbers have less than 50 hubs yet are deriving a good amount of revenue from good traffic numbers, while other hubbers have hundreds of articles and are just doing so-so income. I've noticed that updating and...
