    This topic might be one that gets asked the most. I'm sure you'll get plenty of good advice. Here's mine, for what it's worth:

    - Supply quality content. That means useful, informative, with plenty of media besides text.
    - Pay attention to the SEO aspects of your hubs (a topic too detailed for here), especially your keywords, title, headings. Use Adwords or other tools to fine tune this.
    - Share your hubs to as much social media as you can, such as FB, Twitter, Stumbleupon, relevant forums, etc. Be careful not to spam or be perceived as a spammer.
    - Submit similar, but not duplicate content, with backlinks to your hubs in other article sites, such as
    - Send out your RSS feed and figure out how to get people to subscribe.

    Remember, too, that some of your articles are just not going to get traction. So, keep producing hubs. It just takes a few that go viral to make you some money.

    Hope that helps!

    There are several ways to get more search engine traffic, briefly:

    - Create great content that contains the keywords you want to rank for
    - Use titles and URLs that contain your keywords
    - Use appropriate headings in your articles
    - Develop a reputation as an expert on your subject
    - Get backlinks to your site from other reputable sites

    I have written a hub that covers all of this in detail, 'How to get traffic to your website', you can find it linked from my profile.

      Keywords in titles, headings, body, yes.  Keywords in the URL, not so much. That's a very minor factor.

      It might be a minor factor, but it doesn't hurt to do it; just as well to squeeze as much as you can out of every aspect of on-site SEO.

    Getting Search engine traffic on HubPages needs only

    Keyword Research - Finding Long Tail Keywords related to your Topic
    Keyword rich and Attractive Title  - Combination of 3-4 keyword phrases you researched
    Writing a original and quality article using keywords within, Use keywords with in paragraphs that looks natural and make sense have much more value.

    Its enough to get search engine traffic.

    Back Links and Social Bookmarking not have much value now , even you don't need it for HubPages. You can get some instant direct traffic but not effective for long term. Also it is not easy to get quality back link, you can publish a hub in time you spend to get a good quality back link.

    I also written a Hub on getting regular Search Engine Traffic and how I am getting.

    Hi Reef,

    After following the Casimiro instructions, you may need to link building of your hubs, submit your hubs to high PR related blog directories and use your hub link in your blog comments and forum posting in hub pages forums and in other blogs and forums. As soon as you get some good back links your long tail keywords will rank on first page of Google as mine has ranked.
