Is there any website where you can share a link for your article in order to get traffic?
Its always a good idea to share your hubs on your social media platform, like fb, linkedin, pinterest, and also on twiter. Best of luck.
Thanks! I never knew Pinterest can be of good help for hubers
It is hit or miss, but my most popular hub (13 Cheap Employee Rewards and Incentives on a Budget) gets most of its traffic from Pinterest! I still don't know why that one particular article took of vs others, but it brings in on average 5-10x more traffic per month than any of my other articles...
Any social media is useful, and you can even try other blogging platforms like Medium, provided the platform allows you, but I think they do.
You can post a link on any social media platform.
Also, if you have a good image, you can pin it to Pintrest.
Feel free to post your links on a bulletin board or writers. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1837956723158143
Ask yourself if it's worth your time?
Organic traffic increases with time. Self-promotion annoys your friends, is low value, and is a single burst of traffic, unless you have a huge following.
It's much better to create quality content that naturally ranks in Google, and is shared by visitors than try and share it through your own networks too much.
Personally, I'd rather spend three hours writing three articles that could bring me 10,000 views, than write one article and spend two hours promoting it for a single short burst of traffic.
Yup. Social media traffic carries extremely low revenue values too, if any at all.
When I have time to write for myself (usually my time is spent writing for clients), I like to combine the two. Why not?
Take the time to research 1-2 keywords, verify the information is correct and write the article. Create a couple quality images, and afterward do a little self-promoting via social media (takes seconds to share) and maybe a few other sources.
Years ago, I would spend time trying to get linkbacks on forums, blogs, comment sections, etc. I don't do that anymore, it was a waste of time 15 years ago, still is today.
Can't back this up enough. My most viewed hub has 1.4 million views (and gets about 6-7k per week currently) and I have NEVER promoted it on social media myself. Other people will do the sharing for you, if the enjoy the content.
Also, the majority of my views just came from organic Google searches. 100,000 were from Pinterest, which came from other people pinning and sharing.
If you share link of your hub on social media I won't get views if it is relevant to people otherwise it wouldn't.
How to find the right people? For example I write about software development what is the best place / audience?
How does it work on LinkedIn?
Pinterest is popular among hubbers here.
Generally people share their article links in the social media sites or in the whatsapp groups in which they are a member. These are the most common ways that we can increase the traffic but the total return of traffic through all these sources is very less.
Hi, now that total return is low on social media, what is the best way of doing it?
Occasionally, I share my articles on Pinterest, Twitter, and on my FB page which I set up for one of my niches.
Sometimes, I wonder if it’s all worth the effort.
I think social media has long evolved into the classic situation of the rich effortlessly getting richer, while the poor gets poorer.
A popular account will receive a lot of traffic even if it posts nonsense. The complete case for small accounts.
So yeah, I think it's not worth the effort.
I have used Pinterest successfully. However nothing I ever pin now is ever repinned, so I think they've shadow banned me for over pinning my own content. Oddly, Pinterest is always showing me my own pins as suggestions.
Try sharing in various places.
See where you get the most hits.
How do I even share my article on Pinterest? the platform is based on mostly pictures. Someone help or please explain
If your article has captivating photos, or photos that have the subject title in them, viewers on Pinterest will click the link provided underneath the photo and visit your page here.
Pinterest photos need to be special and interesting to get traffic and repins there. Views from that site can do a lot for your traffic.
When looking at your article, there is a Pinterest icon on the top left corner next to the title. Click that and it will take you to Pinterest. It's pretty intuitive after that...

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...
