Do you spend more time Writing or Promoting your hubs?
If it takes you an hour to write a hub, do you spend as much time promoting it? Or do you spend more/less? What do you do to promote your hubs?
I definitely spend more time writing/researching my hubs than i do promoting I only spend a few minutes promoting my hub. I add it to StumbleUpon, Digg, and Reddit. I may share it on Facebook if I think my friends will find it interesting. I used to do a lot more back linking an found that it wasn't worth my time. Ive found traffic to come from the sources I use now, and that's why I only use them.
I don't spend as much time doing either as I should, but I do spend more time brainstorming ideas, outlining, researching, and writing hubs than I do promoting them. Hubs need time to age online before they start attracting lots of traffic anyway, so I use Facebook, Twitter, and StumbleUpon just to create the first couple backlinks.
I myself have recently become a bit sceptical when it comes to social bookmarking sites like Digg and StumbleUpon. Apparently Adsense TOS seem to dictate that 'driving traffic' to your website violates the policies. So I personally tend to spend more time writing quality over quantity and I figure the traffic will take care of itself with the more articles published. If the quality is evident and the posts are plentiful, I assume this will attract traffic to the links on its own. Maybe someone can elaborate? There does seem to be conflicting information stating Adsense does allow these services. I stay away from social bookmarks currently but if it is indeed allowed than all the power to this method, and it will most certainly be something I will look further into. Best of luck.
I had not heard of this, but it sounds strange. I, and everyone I know on Hubpages, use social media websites like twitter/facebook/google+ to create backlinks and bring in visitors. So, I am guessing google means something else by this.
Thank you 'internpete' In light of this I will now most definitely be initiating an account. Much appreciated
I spend about two hours to research/write a complete hub. I spend a little less time promoting my hub, probably about 30 minutes total, if that much. I use Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Google + to promote my hubs. Hope that helps you.
I always believe content is first and promoting comes second. So I spend more time on hub writing.
Newbie here.. I spend more time writing my Hubs, because that's the main reason I am here. I work full time in construction management, but my passion is writing so this is my creative outlet. It feeds my soul.
Granted, I hope to touch people with my writing, so promoting so more people can see my work is important, but not at the top of my list at this point.
I spend all of my time, regarding creativity, writing. I am woefully neglectful in promoting. I give my all to providing poetry worth the reader's time. Although, I recognize the value in a balance, the main force of my energy reflects my belief that without a meaninful product, time spent on promotion is self-defeating and a waste of time better spent.

Do you spend more time on reading the hubs, or writing your own hubs, or doing both equally?
