I've never believed the power of social networking before. But just before a day i tried it out and I've got nearly 1300 visits to one of my hub followed by 400+ the next day and now its nearly 220 today. Wow!!
Share your experience with Social networking please.
There are billions of sites submitted each day to social networking sites. However I'm not a huge fan of them for several reasons:
•They don't bring (m)any adsense or amazon clicks. •Generally a submission will sink or just never get any views at all. •The backlinks are usually nofollow making them worthless. •I'd rather spend my time on something that will increase my traffic over time instead of one hit wonders.
Its great for the ego to see that much traffic, so congrats.
But the key is getting stable traffic over a long period of time. So I would take 200 views a day over a six month period, mostly from Google, over 1000 is a day from Stumbleupon or something. The google traffic brings clicks, comments, etc.
But it means you are out there and that deserves a hardy pat on the back. Congrats.
It's not that hard to believe guys. I made a hub on xbox games a while back and submitted it to a gaming social bookmarking site. It received about 1000 hits the first day, followed by good numbers for a few more days after.
That being said I wish I didn't do it. It skewered my stats on HubPages and now I have nice looking hump every time I look at the graph on my profile page. Would rather just get 1000 hits the old fashioned way - find a very, very nice niche.
It just seemed odd to me that your post here sounded like some newbie just discovering social networks and yet your profile and hubs indicated someone with some experience. It was that incongruity that bothered me.
HubPages is considered a social networking sites, so views that come from it have less value than others. I am wondering if the same is true of the niche sites. Are they considered to be social networking...
I am so so happy right now! My total views have finnally climbed to over 1,000 and one of my Hubs has been selected as a Rising Star. I've been steadily working on improving my Hubs and apparently it is working! How...
