In reading many forums, I've seen where people have posted in forums to promote their hubs. At first I thought, wow that's rude, but now I think I have a different view.
I think we all want our hubs to be read so promotion rather through a social network, around the hub-pages community, or wherever is important.
...Or, is promoting one's hub in forums a nuisance, which takes away from the forum's purpose?
TOS says no self promotion in the forums, meaning if you post a link to a hub for the purpose of promotion, they will delete it. In threads where it's relevant, there are people who have linked to a hub of another hubber to help in providing info or answering questions in the forums. Mentioning that you have a hub on a relevant subject, without linking to it can be helpful at times, but shouldn't be done flagrantly. It's a matter of respect for each other since none of us wants to be spammed. Good hubbers tend to build followers over time because they write quality hubs and are interesting and friendly in the forums. (Well, as a rule that's true, but not in all cases...)
Welcome to HP! Looking forward to reading your hubs.
Noting that you're still a relatively new hubber, I'll add that you can post a hub link in the extreme hub makeover subforum only, for the purpose of seeking advice from others about what improvements could be made to your layout and such.
I join a whole host of forums related non related to my hub topics and upon sign up they normally ask for website url and email signature and i put my hubpages url as my email signature and my blog for website url, and i started that last saturday and within that space of time my google page rank for my blog jump 1 bar. now how cool is that? its all about backlinking.

While I'm being a policeman, I can't help noticing that there's a lot of self-promotion that goes on in the forums. Especially the "other topics" forums, where quite often you'll find posts with not much more than the link to the person's Hub.Surely the forums are places to discuss...

I guess the title says it all- I have a few published hubs and a few in the workds that I believe are well written and interesting to read, but I can't see many people finding them through google, what are some other good ways besides spaming links to promote it?This one of the hubs I was talking...

For the newbies and experienced Hubpage members, it seems that it takes some work to stay alive on Hubpages. From writing hubs to answering questions to being on the forums, I do admit it is fun either way but it takes a lot of work.I know most experienced hubbers advise not to worry about...

A fellow hubber didn't like my plan to seek to promote my hubs through the HP Forum. Is it unfair ? Please reply giving reasons.
