    How do you increase traffic with Twitter, Blogger, Facebook, and adsense along with all these sites?

    And what's the 5 minimum deal with the 30?

      You'll have to clarify these questions. I don't know what it is that you're asking.

        Go to: my account-->(under "YOUR HUBS") Traffic Sources-->
        This states there are 30 sites with a minumum of 5 referals.

        I don't know how to utilize any of these thirty, much less the 5 referals.

          That's just letting you know where your traffic is coming from.

          It will show the top 30 sites sending traffic to that hub. The '5 referrals' means that it has to have at least 5 visitors coming from that source before it will acknowledge that it is coming from that site.

          There's nothing you need to do. It's just a statistic to help you. A lot of people 'build backlinks', but they'll of course already be aware of the source, and quite possibly the number of visitors clicking through. What this tool is good for is to let you know where traffic is coming from from places that you weren't aware of. However Google Analytics does an even better job than that.

      If you're looking to bring traffic to your hubs, I'd suggest using content sharing websites. I get quite a bit of traffic form them. I have a hub which gives you a list if you want to have a look.

    I have no idea what you're talking about. I'm not sure you do, either!

    Why not write some Hubs, then there will be some point in asking questions?

      I just wrote my first one and was going to try to know what I'm doing in promoting it before I publish it. I see all these people having links off their twitter.

    Benzino..... Just publish your hub, silence the critics (including me atm), get some fans, get your score to 75 (so your links have meaning) and then put the details into the Extreme Makeover, so you get good critique and tips and then write the next.

    Your first priority needs to be getting to have a writing score of 75, before you worry about links.

    The water is warm mate... don't be so tentative smile

    Benzino, the 30 sites you mentioned are the top 30 referring websites to your hubs, and for a site to qualify for the list, it must have referred at least 5 visits to your hubs. That's what that means. The list of sites can change over time as well, but usually, in my case, domains like Google.com, HubPages.com, and search.yahoo.com are always at the top.

    I think you should go to Twitter, Blogger and Facebook and just keep on bragging about your site.
    Well that should bring you some traffic...LOL
