    Does anyone have new marketing ideas to bolster traffic other than FB, Pinterest, or Stumble Upon?

    I've tried Reddit to build traffice, impossible.  They will nixt you for spam.  I've tried Bubblews, attaching my Hub pages link to the profile, sort of works but I can't stand that platform anymore, Stumble Upon works once in a blue moon.  Pinterest is promising, and lots of fun, but I have yet to see a turn around.  And FB, well ... I'm not to keen due to the fact that I hate sharing my Hubs with friends because they tire of me constantly plugging my work.  Anyone have other means aside from paying for a click thru traffic marketing source?

    You've named the main ones but I didn't see you mention a blog. Do you have one?  Make a specialty blog, a niche blog, and then you can link to your other articles from it.  There are tons of other platforms out there, and after awhile it's a crapshoot.  I just stick with the basics and am consistent in what I do.

      I have a blog for my author pen name, and creating one for Z, well ... that's a whole lot of work!  Worth a try .. too bad I couldn't verge the two.
      Thanks for your input

    The only ones I can think of that you didn't mention are Google+ and Twitter. Maybe if you got on a history group at Google+. I notice that most of your hubs are orientated to that subject. Look if Yahoo Groups has a history group. I get a lot of traffic from a Yahoo Group for one of my niches.

    Ziyena, if you subscribe to blogs that have CommentLuv attached to their comment section, the link to your latest blog will show up in your comment.  I've gotten lots of page views to my blog that way, although new subscribers is few and far between.  Nevertheless, I've seen traffic increase to my site by commenting on other blogs I follow.  Make yourself known and readers who see your name often will become curious and check you out.
