Besides the obvious Facebook, twitter and Pinterest, I would appreciate suggestions on where to share my hubs for more exposure.
I don't seem to be getting much traffic to my hubs and would love to chance this.
The main thing is to create titles based on what people are looking for. Social media traffic is nice but it's here and gone very quickly.
If your title and intro fulfil a need then you will get your traffic. I only put mine on Pinterest and that's only if I remember. I let my readers do the FB thing for me
I agree with Bev in that the most important thing is that your titles and summaries draw Google traffic. At the beginning, though, I found sharing on other sites important and spent a lot of time on it. I do not worry about it much anymore.
I think the best thing you can do to find someone who wants to read your article is to post it on a forum. If you just go on the forum and post a link, however, you will probably be banned. They want people that participate.
Since your articles are on different subjects, decide on one you want to promote. (I think you should use the one about avoiding scams.) Google the forums on avoiding scams, sign up, do some reading, then answer some things and include the link to your Toughnickel article at the bottom of the post. DO NOT just post the link.
I never use FB but other people will share one of my articles so from time to time I will get a huge surge from there. It only lasts a few days, at most. I still use Pinterest on new articles since the traffic there comes over time, not all in one day. I think Twitter is a waste of time unless you happen to be President or a movie star.

Do you have an external blog that you link to your hubs? Do you write articles for an online magazine? And is it recommended to specialise in one or two areas - and connect a blog to these hub topics?I receive bursts of traffic when I promote my hubs on social media but I am looking into other ways...

If we pump up our use of social media, i.e., marketing our articles more, will it help increase our traffic much? Or won't it make much difference because we are more dependent upon organic traffic? Something tells me we might have to wait out this drought. What say you?

I don't get into these fights and disagreements with what HP does on a regular basis. But I looked at my Hubs and I only saw the four sites; Flipboard, Pinterest, Facebook and email in my share icons over the past week or so. What happened to G+ ?????This one doesn't make sense to me considering...

Can you share your experiences with Pinterest?Do you believe it will get more external traffic faster?

As configured, the site has been basically worthless to me. Deleted all existing boards and created a single, new one. The new board will blatantly plug my articles and nothing else. It'll either fly or not. If not, I really don't care; I already consider Pinterest pretty much a lost cause...
