I have 13 hubs and still the traffic is not what I am expecting. What can I do? Pls suggest
You have only been here 2 weeks according to your profile, and your hubs look like they would have quite a bit of competition key word wise... so you will have to work on your backlinks, you can also link between your hubs.. search the hubs to find help with writing your hubs and so on..
Hi Emily! Try googling Pingler. There are others too, google pinging. You will have to submit each hub address individually but it's free.
When you finish a hub submit it to twitter and facebook. You have to have an account, but if your contacts like it, then they will have it on their pages, or retweet.
Next read other hubs on the subject. Follow tips by the top hubbers, those with a 100 score.
Try giving it time as well, and make sure your hubs are useful to a variety of people. Traffic takes time. I have been writing four months, but my traffic has been like a roller coaster.
When you start a hub, add a news feed first. If you have a good title, it should fill up immediately. set it to 8 and check your feed, when you publish you may drop it down to 3. This will also give you areas where you can do research on your topic.
Add an RSS feed for your topic if possible, and you will also see how many hubbers have written on the topic, when you click preview. You want activity, but not extreme competition.
Join stumble and digg, and social networking sites. The more you get your name out there, the more people will find you.
Most of your traffic will come from search engines. While they may index your Hubs quickly, it can take weeks or even months before they rank well enough to get on to the first page.
While they're still languishing on page hundred-and-umpteenth, no one is going to see the link so no one is going to visit!
If you're active in the forums and comment on other people's Hubs, you'll get Hubbers visiting in the first week or two - which won't make you any money, but at least you won't feel so lonely!
A word of advice - your Hubs are on the short side. Think of a Hub as a high quality magazine article rather than a blog post, and you'll ultimately see better results. But Hubbing does take patience - the Hubs you write now will start being rewarded in six months time, but of course they'll go on earning for a long time.
Welcome to HubPages!
The hub below could use more information. Thus, adding content to your hub, giving the spiders and bots of Google more substance.

The hub below could also use more information.
http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-create-o … ng-website
Again, more content is needed.
http://hubpages.com/hub/Get-Your-High-S … oma-Online
http://hubpages.com/hub/Pros-and-Cons-o … -Schooling
That's just for starters. I haven't checked out all your hubs.
I hope that helped. *hint- there are a couple of forum threads who were asking about how to make money from hubs- I left a bunch of links in both of them to help:
Thanks a lot Faybe Bay.. I will definitely try things suggested by you...
This may sound counter-intuitive, but, don't write for traffic. Write because it matters. Then, when you're done, do all the SEO and that other stuff that manipulates the system for traffic. The rules will change, algorithms will shift as they figure out who has figured out how to game the purpose of writing into something about clicks rather than readers. If you do that, write good content first, then do the other stuff, you'll make bank, because your information will be good no matter what the technique of the moment is for tricking computers and spiders into noticing. If readers see quality, eventually the cream will rise.
Just my opinion. Maybe foolish hope. (And I should point out that I don't make bank, because I don't do any of the algorithm manipulation stuff, so, take my opinion with an extra grain of salt I suppose.)
I've only been on hubpages for a few days but I've been getting all kinds of traffic to my hubs. I can't brag too much, all of it is from hubpages but it still feels good.
I spend lots of time on my writing though. I always research anything that I write about...even if I know loads about it. I like to make sure that when someone reads my hubs that they know that I know my stuff. Maybe it's just cause I'm a perfectionist. I don't know.
Write good quality content and then start participating here on the forum and commenting on hubs you're interested in. That's worked well for me.
I just happened to come across this post just a minute ago, and found all of the suggestions interesting and helpful. I know from my experience on eHow that articles take a lot time to generate traffic, and you have to be patient. In time, you'll start to see results trickle in within a few weeks or even months.
Thanks everyone for your support of this post, and your great advice and encouragement.
