    How to get traffic

    I know this is a loaded Question, but I am looking for a simple answer. I am fairly new to Hub pages and the Forums all have different advice for the increasing traffic question. The most popular answer is backlinks, and I understand backlinks, but Im not sure how to get them. Just posting links on my social networks is not enough. How do I get quality backlinks without spamming other sites? Some say use Fivverr and pay for it, others say that will actually hurt your rankings. Any help would be great!

    Write more. You only have a few hubs. Write good quality, interesting articles that will be evergreen. Participate here by reading, commenting, and following other hubbers. I also post on FB and Pinterest. Good luck!

      Thank you for your answer, am in the outline stages of around 10 different hubs that I hope to have completed and posted within 30 days from now. I am looking for a way to get my search engine and backlink traffic from outside of hubpages

      It just takes time, but your hubs will mature.

    I see that you posted this question 5 months ago, and I'm curious how it is going for you now? I am new to Hub Pages and I just posted a similar question. I am still trying to figure out how to post ads. Thats how new I am. smile I plan to stick with it, and I hope that you still are as well.

    My traffic is getting better each and every week (it does take time). I have found that by writing about an interesting topic (or at least a well searched topic) with a good title is the best way for traffic. Google alone accounts for 60% of my traffic and I have 2 hubs that are listed #1 for their respective keywords. I also use the standard social media sites, (FB, Twiiter, Digg, Stumble, and Pinterst) and certain forums but I find that they only give me a short, mild boost if best. I have heard recipe hubs do well on here, let me know how they work for you.
