    Promoting a hub is a difficult task compared to writing a hub. Agree or disagree?

    Yes, I agree. Writing a hub is one thing but getting people to read it or even know about it is another thing all together. Certain hubs seem to do well on their own, others don't generate much interest unless you work on it yourself. Being a writer about much more than just writing!

      Thanks Sparkster, for sharing your valuable opinion!
      I agree some hubs get good traffic on their own while others, in spite of having very good content do not perform well. This is an age of marketing and writing also needs marketing.
      Thank you!

    Yup. Writing takes a month but promoting a hub that died out after 24 he's, is a tedious job

      Thanks peachy, for your response!
      Yes the hubs get good views when new but need to be promoted a little bit when they get older.
      Thanks!

    Of course i was told that if you write quality content then you no need to promote it. Content will promote itself but from the day I’ve been in the field it's totally different writing perfect content is much easier than promoting it...

      Thank you Ahmed Ali, for answering!
      Even good content needs promotion. That's my observation! The thing that matters is what people are searching on the Internet. That's why creative writing doesn't get many views other than your followers.
      Thanks

    Totally agree. I do research, I try to write quality hubs and yet the traffic is low.

    I completely agree with you, but if you manage to write high quality, unique, and engaging articles, then they are most likely to get traffic without much efforts, and that's the key of becoming an awesome hubber.

    Wow! People really do work at the task of promoting their hubs. I suppose if you are doing it to make money then the promotion is really more important than the writing. A good salesman can sell me horseshoes and I don't own a horse. Isn't promoting a profession and writing a profession? So a good writer just assumes they can be a good promoter? Well I can promise you that if you are a writer by trade that trying to be a promoter is going to be a much more difficult task. If someone were to say that promoting is easier then I might hire them to promote for me. But I don't think I would hire them to write. I know a bunch of top notch lawyers who write great legal stuff all day long. But they have absolutely no business in a courtroom trying to persuade a jury that their client is innocent. Totally different crafts.
    So for me, promoting is such a difficult task I do not even attempt it. Writing I enjoy so I do it everyday.

      I completely agree with your views. Even I am very poor at promoting my hubs but I enjoy writing mine n reading others hubs. I get decent traffic and happy that people are reading my hubs

    Well, I'm more of a fanfic writer than I am a hub writer, but one thing is nn common to both of those - if you do not write about something that interests a lot of people, your words are going to be drown by someone else who does write about things that are interesting to more people.

    As an example from what I could see in my own fanfic works - I absolutely hate writing stories with Bilbo Baggins/Thorin Oakenshield pairing with them. In fact, I wrote only one complete work and have only one WIP with that pairing, while I have a loads of other stories that are either gen or with different main pairings. And I'm damn proud of those other pairings/gen stories. The thing? Those have only about one third of pageviews or any kind of feedback. But that single complete story/WIP with Bilbo/Thorin? i absolutely hate those stories, yet they have so much feedback and following that I still am working on them even if I wish I could just delete them and write something completely else. First, I do not want to be one of those authors who delete their work when they already linked to it from bazzillion places, and second, those two stories brough me so much traffic to my other stories that it would be sorta counterproductive to completely drop them.

    So, yeah - a story or a hub takes only a (relatively) short time to write - but to make sure it won't just disappear under the dust is something completely else.

      Thanks Veroniquebee, for sharing your experience and opinion!
      I agree that it depends a lot on what people are searching for on the Internet. Some of the very good content needs promotion, else they might be unfeatured  due to lack of engagement.
