l'm new to hubbing and don't seem to be able to attract others to read my hubs and add comments.Another problem l don't know how the earning aspect works, is it by the number of times others go to your hubs? maybe someone would be kind and give me
a few clues. You probably think l'm thick.
thanks for your help
Begging on the forums seems to be a popular approach
The main thing is it's by number of clicks on ads. There are other factors that you'll see if you have/get a Google account and see how it all works. That's the main thing you need to know.
The biggest thing you need to do is attract outside traffic to your Hub. That's where ad clicks come from. Getting other people to read and rate your stuff (hopefully "up") can take a little time. Just write, hang out a little in the forums (so people get to know you). Read other people's Hubs and comment on them.
The HubPages "help" section has all the basics, and there's all kinds of information on "Hubbing" if you search for specific things (either in the forums or in Hubs).
Why not start by adding a profile avatar (picture) because that helps folk to identify with you or whatever your avatar represents.
Adding some personal profile data would also help, because when I read your profile I can decide easier whether I'm liable to want to read your hubs, and follow you (or not)
Read all the other info to learn about backlinking, Stumbling, SEO and stuff that helps get exposure.
Choose a topic that will almost guarantee that large numbers of folk are searching the term already.
Write stuff that folk want to read.
You will get visitors to your hubs if you get involved in discussions on the forum. People need to know you exist.
In case you don't know HubPages does not pay you, you sign up for Adsense and Amazon. You earn when people click on your AdSense ads and when someone buys something through your Amazon account.
go to contact page of that hubber if you want to show any particular hubber
or write a thread about that comment
This isn't good advice. If you start emailing Hubbers to say "look at me!", you're likely to have the opposite effect! And starting a thread to promote one of your Hubs is bad manners, too.
As others have said - participate in forum discussions and comment on people's Hubs. Hubbers will notice you and check out your Hubs. You can also post a couple of your Hubs in the Extreme Makeover Thread to get some feedback.
But as Lisa said, if you're here to earn, you need to attract outside traffic rather than other Hubbers. That means writing about things people are searching for on Google.
Sometimes I stand around the forums in a big yellow chicken suit, but that only tends to make people stand rather far away from me. *cluck*

Dear staff, is there anything that can be done to the feed where I can choose not to receive notice of hubs shared by other hubbers? There are people who share every hub they read. If I want to read a hub or follow someone I will. I don't need to see all those hubs of people I don't even know in my...

Hi everyone,I'm really new to Hub pages and was wondering, how do new Hubbers get followers? How can I get to know who’s who in HP and get people to visit my hubs and possibly even become followers?I know following other Hubbers is good Karma, but most of the people I follow are so popular...

I do occassionally,and I know people with 80 comments or more -they are over time....But it seems some get 10-20+ right away in a short time. Is it cause they're long time hubbers, have tons of fans? Or is it cause more people are interested in the topic and it's quality?Or all of the above?anyways...

Ok, I'm not sure if the title makes much sense. But, anyway...I'm curious if you guys post links to hubs that you found interesting on your blogs?I know that I do, but do you?Maybe if hubbers were aware that other hubbers do post links to hubs (other than their own) on their blogs, it may inspire...

I am NOT 100% sure where to post this before anybody jumps on me! I personally would like to see the comments section of a hub precede the ads and the related hubs. It feels like our readers come in to read the information on our hub and then are tantalized by the ads and encouraged by the related...
