How much work should we do to promote our hubs? Should we solely rely on Hubpages for promotion now?
Should we submit a hub into directories as a backlink? I use other things I know work, but what about things like yahoo directory? Should we do this? I use things like Ezine Articles which is good but strict. What do you think?
I am still doing that, I share my HP url to FB, twitter, Stumbleupon, Tumblr, Linkedin, etc
I am not sure about directories, but I use Social media. It doesn't (for me) generate a lot of direct traffic, but having multiple links to your hub must help.
I use Google+, Facebook, Pinterest (I believe this one is particularly good if your hubs have a strong visual element to them), Delicious and I also used Reddit a little bit.
My best performer personally is Google+ but it is tiny compared to the traffic I get from HubPages itself. I think it depends on the type of hubs you write and the topics you choose as to which is best.
I wouldn't recommend relying on HubPages for promotion. The extent of what they do is to put it out there and maybe feature it within their own website. It's similar to when you self publish a book. Sure, it's available, but nobody knows about it. So that part still falls on you. But I would try to find some sort of balance because over-working yourself on promotion is exhausting and it takes you further away from the writing side of things.
Yes,this is the right answer. If you want traffic you have to do the fun part of rewriting everything you have done in order to establish your content on search engines. I submit to Bing,Google,and also use things like Redgage to establish link power

Who are the top hubpage earners and what is their secret?I read a few hubs that described the top hubpage earners but I think it was from last year or so. Who are the top earners now and what are the main reasons for their success?

Just curious if anyone is using article directories like ezine, xomba and buzzle to drive traffic to your hubs. From what I understand about pageranks, if I write an article for ezine, even though ezine has a high pagerank, my article on ezine will have it's own pagerank...which will be low...

As fast as I'm trying to fix up hubs that are unfeatured, the problem isn't that there is something wrong with them, but that they are being unfeatured as a result of lack of traffic. Isn't this short sighted? Some topics just don't get that much traffic. It's not because they are badly written,Is...
