How do you promote you Hubs outside of Hubpages? How many hours a day do you set aside for this?
Of all the ventures in the world (I´m dramatic like that) I find that Adsense is one of the most satisfying in terms of flexibility and creativity, and the less profitable. Please prove me wrong.
I promote through Facebook and CafeMom. Recently, I decided to find others who really like to write a lot and have them go through my referral link so that I can earn 10% of their life time impressions. I average about $10 through adsense monthly so definitely not making a fortune but I don't spend very much time on promoting like maybe I could be.
I use my related articles at InfoBarrel to link here (and vice versa), and sites like Facebook, Digg, StumbleUpon, Reddit, Twitter, and others [including my own blogs] to share links. I spend some time doing this a few times per week... I'm not sure yet if the time is better spent writing.
I spend zero hours per day promoting my Hubs. I spend a lot of time thinking about what to write, doing research, and having interesting experiences which make for good Hub topics.
(1) I read blogs and leave comments with my URL
(2) I have a blog dedicated to my hubs where I post the first paragraph and the link.
(3) I have links on all my other blogs or websites
(4) I create feeds using feed aggregators
(5) Social media
(6) Free directory submissions
(7) i email links to friends
(9) I use other article writing platforms to promote my hubs
I can't remember any other but I ma sure there are.
I don't bother with adsense here because HubPages has not found a way for people outside of the USA to join in. I think they want this to be made of Americans.
Thank you very much! I'm definitely making a note of all your ideas!
Whoisbid, if you don't mind answering, where are you?
Thanks again all! And knowing one can average 10 dollars a month, gives me hope! hahaha!! I average 0.57!!!! Lots of room to grow!!!

By a top-quality Hub, I mean one that is more than 1,000 words, contains original or carefully chosen photos from other sources, gets a Hubscore at least into the 80s if not the 90s and is Featured. It may or may not be an Editor's Choice. By hours, I mean research, writing, editing and promoting.
