    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.

      Thanks for answering Garifalia! I will check out someone's profile and see if their hubs are of interest to me. I understand what you mean. Best ~ fitmom

    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.

      Thanks lorddraven2000 for answering. I don't always understand the rules with all these message boards. You'd think that they'd welcome quality blogs instead of replies with useless information that is so often the case. Best ~ fitmom

    No, isn't that called spamming?  I really don't know.

      Not when u are a valid member of the forum, or when it's against the rules of the forum.

    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.

      Thanks for answering, SoManyPaths. Sounds like a good rule to follow.  smile Best ~ fitmom

    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.

    Cheers

      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. sad 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.

      Thanks noenhulk for sharing. I agree that it does help to be present in the hub pages community. Best ~ fitmom
