Support for Fellow Hubbers: An Idea

    I've spent the last few days improving my hubs and working on SEO.  As a result, I now have half a dozen additions to my toolbar for easy back-linking to my hubs.

    Then, I read a fantastic hub by Missi Darnell a few moments ago.  It occurred to me that, in less than 60 seconds, I could help promote this hub by a few clicks.

    I wonder:  How many of us do this?  How many of us take a few seconds to click "up" on HP, to submit links to the likes of Blink, Folkd, Xomba, FB, Stumble, Reddit, and so on?

    It just seems like the thing to do, when we read another hubbers hub that qualifies as outstanding.  The better one hubber does, the better we all do, right?  (Sort of?)

    Even if we don't personally benefit, we each know how HARD it is to build that crucial SEO; so, why not take a few seconds to support our fellow hubbers?

    Just a thought.

    Dale Mazurek has a great blog that he uses solely for the purpose of promoting other Hubbers. Following his example I have also started a blog at blogspot for the same reason. I always rate up a hub that I find informative or that i have enjoyed reading.

    I always share articles I read and enjoy thoroughly. When I rate up an article, there are times that I share it with my network.

    Granted, my network is small, but any help I can provide is what I feel I must do. Especially, when great quality hubs are read. smile

    Yep if I find an article that I know someone else would benefit from then I'll share it - I would hope that someone else will do the same for any Hubs of mine that are great - if they can find one that is *smile*!

    Yeah ... I've never hesitated to mark a hub up (or down!) here on HP.  I'd just never thought about doing the back link promotion until today.

    It's something I'll definitely continue to do, and, like you said, I hope others would do the same for me, etc.

      I rate up many hubs and share them in emails. sometimes I'll post them to FB. I send a few out a day, sometimes more if I have the time to read.

    The thing is, you can actually benefit $$-wise too.

    Simply scroll to the bottom of the page and click the "link to this page" link.  The link that you are given has a tracker on it that will give you a chance at (i think) 9% of ad impressions - as well as perks if the person ends up signing up on Hubpages and begins to publish hubs.  I would suggest checking the "Learning Center" a bit more on this though, because I may have left a thing or two out or missed a few of the specifics.

    I share and create backlink blurbs for other writers hubs on a regular basis, i do this more frequently than I actually comment.

    Im often not bothered to add a tracker, although i do when I remember.

    Rebecca E. gave me the very same idea your talking about here. When your done reading a great hub it only takes a minute or so to tweet, Digg or stumble it. Share the link love. smile

    A very good reason to do this is: If all you do is self promote on twitter, stumbleupon and the rest others will notice this and may start ignoring your posts or even unfollow you. I don't follow anyone on Twitter if all they do is promote the same thing over and over, like their own web site for instance. That gets old quickly! So we shouldn't do this either imho.

    By promoting other hubbers hub you are adding a much greater variety to your postings on these other sites. There is a good chance others may follow you just because you posted a hub that wasn't even yours that they liked.

    Twitter is really easy to share the link love on. StumbleUpon and Digg take a few more clicks but are pretty easy too.

    When I write a new hub and I'm out on a incoming link run I will often pick one of my followers hubs that I like and promote their hub on each place I go to as I promote mine.

    So I agree 110% with what your saying here and do do this often.
