    How do you promote your hubs without bombarding your followers?

    Are there any communities (like google+), websites, or forums that you like to post your hubs to? What are some different ways to get traffic to your hubs? I promote my blog on twitter and pinterest, but haven't started promoting my hubs yet. Although at times I feel like I'm bombarding my twitter followers with links. Does anyone else feel this way and is there a way to balance everything?

    You should post at most 1 tweet a day or others will only think of you as a spammer. Have you tried creating a Tumblr account? It's my most effective marketing campaign tool to date which provides me an average of 50 views a day. I haven't got any success with Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest. Follow me on Tumblr if you decide to join:

    Good luck and God bless us all!

    I used social bookmarking sites such as digg, pinterest, stumleupon, google+, article writing, facebook and twitter to promote my hubs. Though followers may sometime take a little longer to build, it is always a better alternative than to focus your entire marketing strategy onto just 1-2 sites. I hope this helps. cheers

      Thanks for commenting! There just seems to be so many websites that I can promote on, that I forget about a good majority of them during the actual promotion process.

    I don't think of backlinking as a very good way to get traffic.  It used to be the magic charm of internet traffic, and a bit of backlinking is still good.

    The biggest majority of links I share on Facebook, Twitter, Google +, etc, are not MY links.

    I don't promote my hubs on any websites at al.  I feel if people want to read my work, they will.  I do OK and make a little money and as time has gone on, my numbers have increased.

    Hubbers who like my work promote it for me, and that is the best I can hope for.

      I like the idea of no having to post anything. The reason I like to promote on a few different websites is to reach more people who typically wouldn't have seen my post or hub. Are you articles SEO friendly?
