      I used this simple formula in order to generate traffic and it works well for me.

      First of all, make your content is more than enough. Yeah, I mean quality content. Don't just write for getting traffic.

      Second, use other social bookmarking sites like Digg, Stumbleupon, Reddit and many more to get your hub spread out.

      Third, consistent. smile

      Just my 2 cent.

      Have you published hubs containing content that people are actually looking for?

      You can lead a horse to water, but there better be something there for him to drink.

      Always use backlink. Promote, linking etc. Many, many ways to get more traffic. Don't forget content of hub also play a role

      Traffic is all that matters, pages of info could be written about that. From my readings on forum simply quality content and backlinks are essential.

    Write good quality hubs is the best way to get traffic, and be patient.  It takes a while, slowly builds.  Be active in forums, other hubs, etc.

    But the main thing is the writing. Over time you will see results. Good luck

      @bgpappa You said it right there in one word - patience!!  Lots of it.  And of course the good writing part.  Many people want the instant gratification.  Any freelance writer (that is in it for the long haul) knows you have to have patience-- and a grasp on delayed gratification.

      That's good sound advice to follow - I'm going to take that all onboard.

    Look in google at what people are searching for then pick a topic and write good, original content.

    My best advice is to write good hubs that are informative and share them with your friends on social networking sites.

    The best way to get traffic is to have your pages rank for the terms that people are searching for. When you write a hub, ask yourself, what would people type into Google if they were searching for the information that I am providing. That should be your title. To get high on the search engines, you need backlinks. Good backlinks take work, but the traffic pays off.

    At this point, you only have two hub.  So I agree with the majority, write more hubs, then worry about traffic.

    To increase traffic, create quality contents and put them where people and search engines will find them. Good luck!

    I want to add to the OP's question. What about posting links to your hubs elsewhere? Maybe including it in a forum siggy? Just a thought!

    Hi all. I'm new to HubPages but from what I've read you just treat your Hubpages as you would any web resource. By this I mean focus on good keywords to get search engine traffic and then generate links in the same way you would to get a website traffic.

    I've tried nearly all of the suggestions and good luck to you!  I don't seem to drive anything or anyone to my hubs.

      @ BobbiRant: Have you tried social media? If you have dedicated followers in place and are consistent, it works like a charm. All the best!

      @ BoobiRant. You need to think of your hubpages as web pages. The main way you will get regular traffic to them is via the serach engines so you need to make sure that you are using the right keywords firstly  and then following the above ideas to help push your hubs up in the search engines. While this you can get traffic from other sources you will probably find this is limited or temporary.

    When people say it takes time for your hubpages to start getting vast amounts of traffic, just how much time do you mean?

    weeks? 3 months, 9 months? over a year? 2 years?

      Hi Hubman

      I guess it depends on how much time you invest and the approach you take. In relation to getting search engine traffic I would say it depends a bit on the terms you are targeting and how much competition. Different people will have different opinions. My view would be if you are targeting a easy keyword term then possibly two to three weeks to get ranked well - more for harder or more contested terms.
