    When ı try to promote my hubs or articles at forums ı usually get banned. Are there specific forums to promote? I think linking an article is not spam but forum mods don't think so. Also ı can't see any hub promoted, that made me think ı'm posting at wrong places. Despite all my efforts still very low traffic. I stumble my hubs a few people visits, it seems they don't favorite as traffic doesn't continue. Anyways are there any specific forums to promote hubs and articles?

      If you read the forum rules, you will see that promotional posts are not allowed on HubPages.

      Your best off finding forums away from Hubpages that target a specific niche or interest and then first just sign up for the first few weeks to a month and get to know people who post there, this takes time, but it's much better than posting your links and buggering off never to return to the forum again, participate and then gradually promote your link(s)

      I've found this a much better way!

      You USUALLY get banned?  You mean you broke a rule MORE than once and have lived to tell about it!?
      That just proves a point that I have made in the past!
      You can go to the forum where you promote the hub of the previous poster and someone else does the same for you.  I know that one is usually good except for when someone just jumps in promoting without reading the actual rules of the forum.

    Good question. There is one forum called Extreme Hub Makeover, where you can ask for feedback on your hubs and where you are permitted to post links.

    HubPages doesn't really have a place for promoting one's hubs, therefore people tend to use social bookmarking sites, blogs, and many other sources to create links back to their hubs.

    Also, let me add that being active on the forums, asking and answering questions, commenting on hubs and so forth tend to give you more followers, which could bring more readers. Try doing some research about the different Topics/categories that may interest you, like politics, music, and business.

    See, I just now saw this and went to read your article on motivation.  Posting in forums is working already!  Welcome to HubPages, and best of luck here.

    Also, if a comment that you write clearly pertains to the forum topic where you post it, I think (!) that it's permitted to mention a Hub you have written as long as you don't actually link to it or give its title or address.

    It's better, though, if someone else mentions it for you.  That is definitely acceptable.

    If you merely casually suggest that readers may/should check out your hubs, and that they can simply click on your hub name and be taken to your profile page and go from there..that seems ok.

    I think what is not allowed is an actual 'url' link to the hub.

    Try the WWW. Go out there and promote the way that everyone else does, rather than rely on a limited audience at hubpages.com.

    It's not like you aren't warned every time you make a post. Check out the left hand panel when you're posting a reply or starting a thread: Do not start threads for the sole purpose of promotion or posting links.

    Promote on the forums you are a member of, or are willing to become a contributing memeber of.  There is no such thing as a forum that wants drive-by spam.

      You are not permitted to do any self-promotion in the forums.  Check the rules.  The minute you post a link to a hub of your own you are in violation of the rules.
