this is just my personal opinion on what everyone should do for each of their hubs directly after writing them or at any point in time. Submit them to 3-4 of your favorite social bookmarking websites (takes 2-5 minutes) and than write an ezine-article for ezinearticles.com with the link to 2 of your hubs in the bottom. You can never have enough ezine articles backlinks and you will get traffic + it can help your PR.
sometimes I hear of people (like myself) sitting around doing nothing because we can't think of a niche. I just started recently when I have that problem, I simply promote my other hubs while I brainstorm.
I know that original content is a big priority here on HubPages, but what about Ezine? I'm unfamiliar with them. Don't they require original content as well? So, are you writing a variation of your HP article there, to link back to here?
Good hints. I am going to go ahead and add all my hubs to a social network. That should help me a bit. Thank you for your advice.
I will let you know how it changes my earnings. Thanks for the tip!
for my first 10 hubs I did that lol. thought, hey if I write 1000000000 hubs than some will do ok and I'll profit. Fact of the matter is it is much faster and easier to write a few ezine articles (which can be much shorter than hubs by the way at 250 word minimum) here and there.
and social bookmarks don't do great, but when you have a brand new hub the 10-20 visitors a day they bring are very helpful.
Me...I juz' take break after writing a hub or two. But...I'm not so techno saavy as some of ya'll are. Go get 'em...with the Ezine Article backlinks! I'm going to have to go ask a computer wiz guru...what you just said?
well I started considering ezine articles after talking to a man who is making $70,000 + a year from adsense alone on his websites. He mentioned on a forum thread that he had gotten like 100k clicks that year from ezine promotion using ezine articles. So all in all if you just keep adding articles to go with hubs I think say two years from now the results are going to be drastic compared to if you never write ezine articles.
note: he probably writes a lot of articles to get 100k+ clicks on his links a year, but either way hes only human.
I've never found the traffic from social bookmarking sites to monetize well. I do blog about my hub and provide at least 5 backlinks immediately after writing.
I keep trying to get into writing ezine articles and haven't worked up much enthusiasm. But I keep thinking about it.
Thanks for the reminder.
I think writing for ezines is a no brainer for those doing affiliate marketing and wanting to send traffic to a landing page. I'm not sold on doing the extra writing for a hub though. I agree with the guy (sorry, I can't remember who) who said he'd only do an ezine article if he couldn't get his hub on the first page of the google results.
well lissie he may be, but I mean he makes his living off of adsense and affiliate programs so I mean when you have an entire day too work and you are as knowledgeable in the field of making money online as he is it wouldnt surprise me if he writes his own.
dang check out this hub I just found. Hubs is by embitca and if you scroll half way down it shows that embitca has gotten 100k+ clicks from ezinearticles.

I have heard of EZA before but not as is relates to HP or backlinks...I'm thinking it may be worth looking at, but I'm wondering - If I feel confident that what I wrote in my hub is nowhere else on the web, can I duplicate it, or a portion of it, to submit as an article to EZA, or is it best to change it up some to avoid the duplicating issue and so that someone who clicks the HP link from EZA sees different/more info on the topic? Sorry that was a really long, run-on sentence!
well what I would suggest is say you write a hub thats 1000+ words and all original. You can use just 1 part of that hub. What I mean is if you wrote about owning a dog and had it in sub sections (dog food, dog vet visits, dog activities) than you can write a simple 250 word article on one of those things. But make it original.
the great thing I find with ezines is sometimes they rank easier than my hubs do, and if the ezine article ranks on page 1 for a keyword than that is almost like having my hub on page 1 for that word.
Got it. I guess that's what I was thinking - the ezine article can be kind of the "teaser" and hopefully people will follow the link so read more on the topic.....thanks!
There is no doubt I wouldn't be where I am right now with my marketing without Ezine
I usually right a hub, post to a blog and then write an article that links to the blog and the hub.
Anyone wanting to make money and not using Ezine is leaving a lot of money on the table.
Don't hesitate and start writing your articles now. Another relatively good article site is Goarticles.
I've been using Ezine for a few years for my primary blogs. I've got about 70 articles published and gotten about 35K clicks from them. If you write the article well and tease with more information you can get a pretty good click through. My highest traffic article has a click through rate of about 40%.
BTW, I wrote them all. I find it's hard to describe how to write an Ezine article with just enough good information to sell the click to an outsourced article writer. If it's just for linking about anyone can write it but if you want the traffic as well it's a bit of an art.
Ok, so I just submitted my first ezine article. I tweaked one of my hubs on cancer treatment and submitted about 1100 words - tried to make it shorter, but it was hard! It's definitely original content because it's about me and MY cancer treatment. I ended it by saying something like, 'to read more about my journey, see my links below' - is that okay to do? Good? Any suggestions?
Lissie - I did read your article. It was very informative and helpful, thank you for writing it!
Dale - Do you post to your own blog? Can you give me an example of how you word your posts?
well, usually I write brand new content. It can be on a subject I've written about before but I make sure I do no copying or pasting.
Either way it sounds like you should be alright.
just remember for new members it takes up to 5-8 days to get the article reviewed and made live, and some times they ask for you to edit parts.
Lily, try to keep your articles to 250-350 words. You don't want to provide TOO much information, and not give them a reason to click through to your hub or site!
I don't backlink immediatley. I wait until the intial traffic dies down. That way, I can support hubs that have aged a bit. I find it helps more with google.
Perhaps its just my imagination, but this works for me.
Re: Pinging....isn't that just for blogs? Is HP considered a blog? Now I'm all confused
I had heard a lot of good reports about Ezine and submitted some articles which were approved but I didn't notice any increase in traffic and as for social-networking sites, although I submit to Twitter, Myspace and Facebook I never get more than a few visits from each site and Myspace is the worst of them all.
I can no longer be bothered with all the rewriting needed for Ezine articles.
I get far more traffic from Google, specialist sites and forums like David Icke's.
I am glad to hear these recommended methods work for you though!
I never thought of pinging hubs. I only ping blogs/websites usually.
Can someone please explain to this newbie what 'pinging' is?
This is how you 'ping'
1. Go here - autopinger.com/default.aspx
2. Put the URL of your article e.g. - http://hubpages.com/hub/Top-Ten-Best-Paid-Jobs - into the window in the middle of the page
3. Tick some or all of the little boxes underneath the window
4. Scroll down and click on 'Start Ping'
This will inform all the sites that you chose via the little boxes that your URL has new information on it
I don't stop with writing one article, ideally for each hub you need to want it to be a progression in promotion, especially if it's on a topic that you know will generate money, so I usually write 3 to 4 articles for one hub a month and spread them out all over on other article directories that carry some PR clout!
One article aint gonna cut it, it's a long term article marketing strategy that wins in the end!
waynet thats impressive to be honest. If you have done that for all 285 hubs I'm sure you do alright with adsense and affiliate programs
