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 wrote this guide. It's a couple of years old but the basics still apply: https://discover.hubpages.com/community … -SEO-Guide
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.

Needless to say, the link must somehow be relevant to the existing article.Anybody got any other reminders and tips?

Just wanted to share this. Someone pinned or "flipped" one of my hubs on Flipboard, a magazine site. So I've had a ton of traffic all morning. I made my own magazine and the traffic magnified even more! (currently 16 visits per minute). Might be worth looking into as an alternative...

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.

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...
