Hi! I am a new hubber. Can you please help me know what are the sources to gain traffic on my articles?
Google is the main one. Then there are others, such as social media, alternate search engines, your own webpage or Facebook page. You will get a little internal Hubpages traffic but it won't usually be significant.

Brandon's article is excellent but... how to change the URL? I have several articles that titles that do not match to URL.
First of all you have to write 'evergreen' articles full of useful information for readers.
Write good quality articles that will stay the course and over time you will gain traffic.
Learn from experienced writers here on HP and also study at the Learning Center.
If you can write good quality articles that compete with rivals on Google pages then it's possible to make a little money.
Build, build, build - keep writing, do not stop.
Pinterest can be a good source of traffic because it taps into people's fascination with collecting things. In the case of Pinterest, it's pins that are pinned onto topical "boards".
Facebook could be a good source if you start a group or page and use it to promote articles to members.
Twitter personally I find is a waste of time because tweets roll into the sunsets on the never-ending conveyor belt. I f your followers follow lots of other people, the chances of them seeing your tweets is slim. In any case, add hashtags and keywords so that your tweets show up in a search.
Quora, LinkedIn, Reddit, Fb groups, Flipboard. You should be careful with quora it is very strict. It is a Q&A forum, your task is to give answers to the members' questions. You will make another article for it. However, it will also ban you if you often post similar things, and share links that seem like clickbait or promotional.
Pinterest and Facebook give me the most SEO other than Google.

I'm fairly new to this, being that I've only been writing about a year and only have about 15 articles. The vast majority of my traffic comes from my MJ and Lebron comparison article. I've also written another sports article that I've webbed to it, but it isn't getting the views I've expected. Same...

Is using social networks to increase my traffic against the Terms of Service on Hubpages and does it affect my HP Program in any negative way?

Aside from sharing my article links on Facebook, what are some tried and true ways of increasing traffic/reads to our articles? I'm new; 3 weeks in, have 10 published and featured articles so far. I'm trying to figure out what the number on my profile photo means exactly. I know...

My new article just got accepted to PetHelpful, and I know it’s normal to get extra traffic after moving from Discover, but I’ve never seen daily traffic like this before. I checked my stats, and a large percentage is coming from an outside source using Newsbreakapp.com. The funny thing...

Just wondering what sites Hubbers use to promote their articles? I have seen a lot of changes over the years with some sites no longer allowing links in forums or comments, and some article sharing sites just going away. I primarily use Facebook and Twitter these days to share my...

Does anyone find Facebook useful? I reactivated my account a week ago and it drew a few visits to my articles. But not enough to justify the amount of time that I spent on it. I find Facebook is such a thief of my time that I deactivated it again.
