    Hey, I am new to hubpages.  I just want to get my articles out and build relationships.  Whats the best way to do that without having my hub sitting for months with no views. How demoralizing?

      Stop worrying.

      It takes AT LEAST a month for a hub to get "traction" even if you have all the right keywords and great content. If you got niche hub it may take even longer.

      I had a hub I wrote in Mid-November, got all the right keywords, topic, has good information, and so on. it wasn't until only past few days (mid-January) that it suddenly jumped from 20-40 hits a day to 250-300 hits a day.

      It finally got to 1st page in Google search results. big_smile

    The best way for you to get traffic from within HubPages is to read and comment on other people's hubs, especially in topics relevant to your own. You can follow people whose work interest you, and they may check out your profile and possibly follow you back, in which event they will be notified of any new hubs you write.

    I advise you to write hubs of 500 words or more, and your grammar needs improvement. You can post your hubs for feedback in the Extreme Hub Makeover forum.

    I'd like to recommend reading the Learning Center.  You can find the link at the bottom of this page.  It helped me a LOT.

    Care about what you write. Don't write to make money. Don't write for readers. Write because what you have to say has meaning to you. Write as if no one will see it.

    Then proofread the crap out of it so that it sparkles, so that nothing in the crude text of it spits on the beauty of the ideas.

    Then participate in the community.  For real. Not just to get read. Actually read and find people to care about. Comment. Read. Engage.

    That's how. I.M.O.

    Do some keyword research so you can get free traffic from google. 90% of my hub traffic comes from google. You can achieve it too!

      I am brand new and is it true that we do have to write two to three Hubs before signing up with Adsense??? Thanks.  I am so excited to finally have somewhere to share everything that is swirling in my head and read what has been created in many of yours!

        "Have to" is a bit too strong, but it is advisable to do so. Be sure to have hubs with substantial original content, like 500 words or more. More than 3 hubs doesn't hurt, either. But if your application is declined for lack of content, you will have the option to add more content then resubmit.

    Read stories of successful hubbers and then take a look at their hottest hubs to see how you can emulate that type of success...
