Ok, so i really want to know how i can get more traffic to my hubs. I know i have to write a hub people want to read and yes i take part in the hub community but i am pretty new to this. What websites do you people use to attract traffic? Please help!
There are 2 types of traffic
1. From HubPages Community
You can do that by writing, comments to other hubs, participating forums, Q&As and link to other hubs.
2. From outside HP
Put on Facebook, Twitter, Other social media, Blog posts, leave comments on other blogs with your hubs as a linkback.
It is long process but works.
Thanks but i got number 1 down. It's your second answer that i am looking for. What websites do you people use aside from Facebook and Twitter and StumbleUpon?
linkedin.com is a great place too..just find the groups that relate to your topics and of course use the same methods as in any other community/social media sites. Post comments and participate in forums and other sources as much as possible.
Go to the learning center and read this up .. covers the whole subject

Does that mean that nothing listed in your hubs on making money online works for you?
don't tell it misha, he will be disheartened. Newbies think that writing on "how to make money" topic can bring them more earning and followers. its not a sin.
I wrote a hub on "keyword development and placement for your website" that I myself don't understand well yet [the website part] though I understand keyword research far better than earlier now.
As a new hubber, I learned from this question. Thanks everyone.
Pinging your hubs, might also help out, i do it all the time.
many people think it's only for blogs, but it works for hubs.
every time you made a new hub, you have the chance to advertise your hub trough facebookl or twitter, do this!
it will not always bring you traffic, but it is a fast and free way.
Hi! welcome to HP
I have seen your hubs and they are very well written. I know you have asked a question about how to increase traffic using other sites. But I will not be answering about that as it has been answered. The only thing I will do is that I will suggest you to consider writting longer hubs and with headings that are highlighted. I have noticed that you have not entered your headings in bold characters which makes it hard for the reader to notice them.
To improve on your HP score consider suggesting links after you have published your hub. You can do that right now also.
wish you all the best Happy Hubbing!
you can post the links of your hub to your friend's, family member and to all known person to their email address....
you can also add the links to your facebook and twitter account..........
simply do better keyword and niche research > post fresh and quality hub that has 600 words at least and wait until your hubs get matured.
HubPages is built to be a "hub". To get more traffic, three items must be directed to your Hub:
1.) Internal HP - comments, forum
2.) Social - Facebook, Twitter, etc...
3.) External writing sites - EZine, SheToldMeSo, Ehow, etc...
Writing on Hub Pages is demanding but the reward both in the conversations and learning you will have and the possible income are achievable IF you are tenacious.
It is not a quick win. You must work at it consistently.
I don't believe nobody has mentioned search engine traffic here?
Search engine traffic is 100% what you should be aiming to achieve. Social media doesn't do much for that, Hubpages traffic doesn't convert well. These are Marketing Techniques, and while they can work, you actually need something to 'market' for it to be really beneficial.
You should be writing on external sites such as article base, eZine articles and This is Freelance to procure backlinks to your hubs, but this is to help your overall SEO, not so much for traffic.
Good point, thissoli and the answers are useful, too. My advice is to look for 3 to 5 blogs or websites that relate to your Hubs and then participate in those sites by leaving comments using your Hub as a url.
I write about business topics which are highly competitive. I've done this on occasion but I'm going to do more for some of my underperforming Hubs and then I'm going to make an effort to stay involved in those sites so I'm really participating and not spamming. Of course, you could do more than 3 to 5 but I don't think most people would have time to participate in 7 to 10 sites.
commenting on other peoples hubs,blog post and website will help.
also visit www.google.com/addurl
trafficg.com/?member=iceangel register there and your on for great traffic to your hubs.
Also sharing and tweeting of your latest and older hubs on facebook and twitter will help you a lot.Another wonderful way is my creating backlinks to your hubs will really go along way.
Hope you found this useful.
These are all great ideas. Thank you for the valuable tips! I'm also trying to increase my traffic, and your ideas are going to be very helpful.

Just wondering what sites Hubbers use to promote their articles? I have seen a lot of changes over the years with some sites no longer allowing links in forums or comments, and some article sharing sites just going away. I primarily use Facebook and Twitter these days to share my...

I have been a member of HubPages for seven months. I have read hubbers with less membership who have more than 1,200 followers. How is that possible? And how can I attract more followers to my "little world" in HubPages?
