Do you post on message boards to increase traffic to your hubs?
yes I do. nothing spam like. I only post if I have something worth while to say.
I don't. I don't even have a facebook lol. Then again I just started hubbing.
I have to agree with simpelandcheap on this one. I will post a comment, answer a question or inject an opinion to a forum thread if I find I have something useful to add, but I'd be lying if my underlying motive was not to drive traffic to my hubs. After all, that is why I'm here.
Does posting drive traffic to hubs? I'd never know. I ask, answer, or comment on topics because it's fun or because I need information on the subject matter. If I have a hub related to the topic, I'll mention it out of relevance and hope they will stop by. But my answer is no, I don't expect to get traffic from participating in questions/forums.
I don't know how that would help. I only read a person's hub if it looks interesting not simply because he/she posted a message.
I used to do it a lot with my paranormal hubs but the site I was on became rather corrupt and I decided to leave as opposed to getting into the heated debate between mods.
If it is highly relevant I do but maybe 85% of the time I don't. I don't go there thinking of slapping up my link unless it happens to be so on-topic.
I use forums to generate traffic, but the niche has to be relevant. I blog on video games and collecting, and my hubs and blogs can be used to illustrate posts on these boards. Just answering or posting questions can generate traffic, if you include your URL in your signature.
I wrote a hub on this topic, I am surprised people dont use this technique more, as part of a traffic building strategy. The followers you get are so much more real and lasting than any link building scam.
Thanks for answering, RolyRetro! I can see that it could be a good strategy on the right message boards and such. I did leave some messages on some message boards (not HP) and they won't let me post because I left a link to my blog. Best ~ fitmom
Posting and helping answer to questions may lead to traffic to your hubs. It is a form of indirect promotion and broadcasting your presence to the community. After all, we all have to admit it is really working for us as hubbers.
