How to bring back readers to older Hubs?
I've been here for about two years and posted a few Hubs and I've seen all the tips on how to promote readership but I was wondering if anybody here tries to bring attention to their older Hubs as well as the new ones and how so?
I really should do more work on older things to improve them to my current standards and level of understanding insofar as what works best today, and not this day 4 years or whatnot ago. I'm nearly always most interested in writing the next one, and hoping it is as good as I think it is.
I don't do a lot of promotion, but I'll give you the thing I'm doing now which does get me a lot of views. Surely you are on Facebook? I will assume you do have a Facebook account,
Now, have you ever really thought about how VERY MANY Facebook groups there are? Dude, there are so many groups it would be nearly unimaginable for there to not be a hundred or more where you could share your articles, and they would be very relevant to the purpose of the group.
I haven't looked to see what you write about. I don't need to. Finding groups which are active and relevant to your writing isn't really even very time consuming. You just have to try several search terms in the Facebook search bar.
It doesn't matter a lick whether you know anyone in those groups or not. Just click that you want to join, they'll either let you in, or not. Once you are in a relevant group, Facebook itself will start suggesting other related groups for you to join. Join those groups too. So forth and so on.
Honest to God, there have been times when after I published a thing, I shared the link in SIXTY or more groups - all groups relevant to what I was writing about. That's really the time consuming thing. Putting a link with a few paragraphs of a header in lots and lots of groups.
Nobody considers me a spammer for doing these things. I don't do it very often, maybe once a month at most. And I only share links into groups about what the page is about. And sometimes I also share links in the comment threads where the link is relevant and won't be thought to be spammy.
You have to read and comment on similar hubs, which helps in getting to know other hubbers. Actively participating in the hub "community" is the best way. You have to start following other hubbers and sharing their material. I make it point of sharing lots of interesting hubs on Twitter, Pinterest, Google, FB and link them to my website.
For me, I found that social media is the best outlet. Granted, most of my readership comes from outside HP. Also, links to your social media sites (or website) helps hubbers to get to know you better. Todd is right, FB is still very powerful. Twitter has worked out better for my hubs though.
Your work is very interesting and well written. I think you have a potential for large readership. A little work in promotion and outreach, you should be on your way.

It would be great to have more options for displaying our hubs on the profile page. The chronological view means that hubs that are related (and may therefore appeal to the same reader) may be quite far apart, and older hubs are less likely to be seen in any case. Also, if we've written several...

I established Groups and moved my existing (completed) hubs into appropriate groups. I understand that some of my hubs will show at the bottom of the screen for a hub from the same group. However, I believe that categorizing hubs into groups with the same or similar theme/overall topic ON THE...

Is there a way to bring an older hub back onto the main profile page?I've published ten now, but my first one is too good to be relegated to second page obscurity.

So, I've always thought it was the polite thing to do to reply to commenters, and thank them for their time and input, and I've made an effort to do so consistently.However, I'm wondering if this is now being discouraged by HP, as there is no available comment box for replies on hubs that have been...

I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub which may be very relevant to the specific content in a section of a hub, if it...
