    I have heard a lot about shetoldme from HP.How exactly does it help in increasing traffic to my website?

    How else? It's another place to write articles or tid-bits and link back to your hubs. wink big_smile

      Hey Casgil! I haven't had time to log into HP in a few days and all the traffic has gone down! smile
      But anyway...well I created an account in shetoldme but after "scooping", all my scoops are in the queued state...Now what does that mean?

        I read the following from SheToldMe FAQ. I think if you get a few hits, the scoop will go to first page (the status is changed to promoted).

        - My scoops are still "QUEUED", when are they going to be published?

        Don't be misled by the wording "QUEUED" and "PROMOTED" because it doesn't mean anything. Your scoops are available to any visitors and Google as soon as you submit them. Scoops are QUEUED at first, it means they haven't yet received a specific amount of votes from other users. When some of your scoops receive enough votes, they appear briefly on the front page of SheToldMe... Just for a few hours..
        QUEUED or PROMOTED, they are always available to everyone, it doesn't make any difference.
        After a while, both QUEUED and PROMOTED scoops are sent to the Archives, where they'll still be available to all.

    My scoops have been in queue for a month! I guess whoever runs it does not do much there anymore. Time to move on,,,

      Hi Bill!Well I guess that makes sense then..I am not the only one in the "queued" state I guess smile
      Do you have any other suggestions for traffic improvement?

      1. Bill Manning profile image74
        Bill Manningposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Well, just search for all the places like hubpages and blogger. Places you can make a quick fast blog and post articles on it, linking back to your stuff.

        Or article places like squidoo and places like that. There's tons of them, too many to have time to use. smile

        Check out Lissie's post http://hubpages.com/hub/Vox-Alternatives

        Posterious seems to be a popular alternative.

      Same here. It has run it's course I guess. I now see it as a waste of time using it. I do not get any traffic from the site at all, so I am not using it anymore.

        Hi Michael. I had created an a/c because I saw a lot of hubs in HP mentioning it's name, but I guess it's not that popular anymore!

        Wow...I thought I was the only one that was happening to.
        It looks like almost all of my recent stuff there is "queued".
