    As a hubber, can you share how you market your hubs as to get traffic to it?

    Do you gather large amount of followers or throw back links into your hubs to get them spotted on Google?
    Your thoughts most appreciated

    Some tips to get more traffic:

    1. Submit your site to online directories such as DMOZ, Google etc.
    2. Write as many as high quality hubs as possible

    3. Submit your site to Google

    4. Become more active in hubpages and gain more followers via forums, answering and asking questions etc..

    5. Use a good heading to your hubs. You can make use of free online headline analyser

    6. Promote your hubs on social media

    Another way to gain more traffic is to write about things that haven't been beaten to death already. What do I mean by that? Google 'how to setup a betta tank'. There are literally thousands of results. Do you really think your hub will be one of the first that google showcases? Write about something new.
    If you just want traffic now you could also try writing about current or controversial topics. You will probably get a lot of traffic right away, but it will most likely decline or stop completely in future weeks or months.

      Thank you isharkbait, very informative answer.  Have considered doing hubs around recent events but as I ultimately am after passive income long term, think it is best I pick topics which are always about.  Thanks for your contribution.
