I'm am lazy right now. I mean I don't want to try and learn about back links, or anything other than publishing hubs.
THIS MAY BE BECAUSE I HAVEN'T MADE ANY $$ YET AND MAYBE I'M NOT MOTIVATED.
ALSO, I tried joining (facebook, myspace, twitter--I had the 1st two and twitter I lost my pw.
I tried stumble upon, reddit, and ezines---they all seem complex...I don't want to study them.
Thank you very much in advance!! SG
Don't worry about it. Just write Hubs!
Of course you'd make more money if you learned about getting backlinks and promotion generally. But look at Relache - she pays her rent with her Hubs and she's never done much promotion.
Promoting Hubs just gets them noticed faster. They'll get there eventually all on their own - it will just take months or even years rather than weeks. If you're not here to make a living, that may be good enough.
EDIT: The other thing is, that there's not even any point in promoting your Hubs if they don't have money-making potential in the first place. Right now your Hubs seem a bit unfocussed.
Before you write a Hub, ask yourself "Is this something people are going to be searching for on the search engines?" If the answer is no, then the Hub won't get readers and won't make money. You also need to think about what kind of ads it will attract. If you can't think of anything that might be advertised, it's not going to be a profitable subject.
I write about mental health, physical health, fashion, relationships, and many other things, which people I think, are loooking to read about.
Also my hubscore is in the 90's which is high.
So I think you're wrong.
And I'm not lazy, I just don't easily take to certain technologies, so I figure I should make some $ and then go kickass. Besides I've written 70 hubs in 3 mo which is more than some of these "brats" can say
Calling people names just isn't a great idea.
Yeah because this 80's Dallas tv show mullet head said we was brats! I'm telling my mum about this waaaaaaa!
Ohhhh, your Mum will take good care of you
Dallas or Farrah Faucet?
you really think it's 80's Dallas?!!
It's 90's Glamour Shot but.......that's ok
You have the right to judge
I was losing my temper
Also, I think I asked for help w/ promotion.
I'm pretty confused when it comes to that stuff.
YOu are writing in high competition niches, you need to do a whole lot of work to get your writing read.
Your HubScore is not a reflection of money-making potential so it's irrelevant. HubScores and Hubber Score is only good for the ego, nothing else.
Like I said, there are two aspects to consider - write what people are searching for, PLUS consider whether the ads will attract people to click on them. I didn't delve deeply into your Hub list but the ones I saw on your profile didn't strike me as having good advertising potential - but if you've worked out that they have, good luck to you.
I didn't call you lazy, in fact I advised you that it's perfectly OK to just write and let the promotion take care of itself. As Lisa said in another thread, these days there's so much emphasis on SEO and promotion that newbies think they have to know it all at once. Most of us "old hands" took a while to gain confidence in learning all that stuff. Don't feel rushed, just do what you feel comfortable with.
If you do want to do something, forget about stumbling and social bookmarking - find some forums (outside HP) on topics you write about, make friends and once you're a part of the community, you can start sharing your Hubs. Also leave comments on blogs on your topics.
wow finally found some one disagreeing with marisa!!!!!!!!!..well school girl..you have right to disagree but marisa knows what she is talking about..she has been there and done there..i think you must consider her advise before jumping to conclusion...
These so called 'Brats' have made the mistakes and learned the hard way, that is why they are qualified to give advice. They have nothing to gain for giving this advice, they just want to help - this is very much a hubpages tradition.
However, I can understand the frustrations that you feel. You have been here three months and haven't made any real money. The key to success is by doing the work now and the rewards snowball in the future. Dont be disheartened.
It might also help if you tweaked your hub titles. You might need to consider reducing your titles to pure keyword phrases and focusing this in the content of your hub.
For example - in your title instead of:
Where Does Our Human Condition Bring Us To?
Mental Health : Depression : Bi Polar - A Human Condition
Depression : Bi Polar : My Experience
You can then sprinkle these terms throughout the article. Please remember that in my example I havent done your keyword research, but it might be a start for you.
I hope this helps and understand your frustration - but remember people are only want to help
You don't look like a real schoolgirl, that picture must be from the eighties. Perhaps your username should be onceaschoolgirlforreal.
And what kind of jerk wants to make money out of religion anyway, that was once the one sacred element to peoples lives. Not that it suprises me though, Jesus has had high stock for years now I heard that Allah is on the up though, could be worth switching your investments.
you really think I should change my name? Is it possible to do so without losing my account??
No one uses (hardly- ) their current picture. It's from the nineties....
I actually don't feel great about my name, I had chosen it quickly and it stayed.......
The pic most people have said is very pretty. It's a glamour shot.
Only some of my hubs are on religion. I write about several things I like
I write about Christ because I want to help others and inspire them.
Don't expect to make any money if you are not prepared to put in the work.
This is the forum for us to look at your hubs, "Extreme Hub Makeover"....
who does that?
why is there an "e" next to your pic?
Rather than ask for help ona subject as big as promotion you really need to look in to it yourself first, the subject area is simply too big for people to explain in a forum post.
Once you have learned the basics you can start to ask questions about the grey areas!

I have created a pitiful 29 hubs in four years. But I'm a lot more active on facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google Search. You people MUST LIVE ON HERE!

I have been thinking about leaving for a while, but I know that in those times I have had something else going on that depresses me a bit. It started when I lost my brother and I began to, somewhat, lose that oomph I had for writing and publishing here.What about you?
