    Ok so here is what is on my mind. Right now I am back a work (a school) and don't have much time/energy to write much. I have however taken to looking for articles to read on the different steps to creating successful pages. My experiences so far have been so encouraging that I really think I can improve my strategy and focus and maybe give up one of my other day jobs ugh. I don't actually get that many click throughs' as my early hubs are ok at best as far as being profitable goes.

    I have noticed something with my ok hubs, the clicks are starting to go up in this last week or so. There seems to be a pattern tho. With all these great pages I have been reading I have just had to make comments. This seems like a little thing to me, very basic interaction with the hub pages community really. The thing is this seems to be spiking my traffic and clicks, looking at my google stats it seems that my profile and say one or two pages are getting more clicks then when I can't find the time and am completely inactive here.

    I wonder if these awesome pages are attracting traffic and that traffic is linking to my pages like the comment left was such as to invite general readers to come check me out? Has anyone else noticed this sort of pattern?

    Of course it's a pattern. Any activity you do such as commenting on one of the hubs will be registered and brought to surface, an action that we call "Hubtivity". This Hubtivity appears on every front page of your fans...

    Never realised commenting on fellow hubbers hubs is an added plus, even as i do it. Nice to know that. smile

    If you are looking for outside traffic from other than Hubpages try backlinking to your hubs by writing short articles for Ezinearticles or blog posts with anchor text linking back to your hub which will increase your standings in Google and other search engines. Just what I have found helped me gain ranking quickly in Google to get search traffic outside of hubpages.

      Thank you As a newbie I am learning through reading these posts-
      I even went back thru two article and sued keywords i researched- It only took me up a fewpoints- but maybe they will get searched and improve my hub score?

    Way cool!  I have enjoyed commenting on other Hubber's post, and just learning that I may be helping my own traffic is a complete bonus!

    I just started posting on hub pages and have to say now a few days into it nearly all my stats are hubpage users. While a few outside of it. Working to build those outside links and build traffic that way. However a great community we have here that is for sure!

    It would be great to get extra traffic this way.  I've only just started posting.  Like you I have a day job (four exactly at the minute) and time is pressured, so I used my time writing hubs.  Now I'm exploring a little.

      I think the forums are a great way to keep the dust off my presence here at hub pages smile I do not always feel up to thinking up a whole article and I just want to chill out, its nice that all of what we do here adds value to the site as a whole and to each of us individually as well.

      There is something I am hoping to try when I get the time. I recently realized that referring people to good hub pages as well as to join the site can mean a little cash return if that traffic results in clicks. The author get %60 and hubpages get %40 unless there is a referrer then hubpages gives up %10 to that referrer. I figure that there are a lot of articles here that have helped me to understand keywords and all that stuff, they may help others too and maybe we will all share in success that way. I figure its worth a try and it may help some of the authors here I am now friends with so they should be chuffed smile.
