    Hello, my name is Cory James. I joined Hubpages three days ago. Two quick questions: 1.)What are the best ways to generate traffic toward published hubs (I have two)? and...2.)How long on average does it take before people start noticing your hubs?
    Your feedback will be much appreciated! My email is coryjames4@gmail.com in case anyone would send me additional information in addition to a simple reply. Or better yet, my hub titles are "Internet Secrets Exposed!" and "MyLeadSystemPro Review", leave a comment. Thank You In Advance.

      Hi Cory, welcome to HubPages! Here's what I know from personal experience.

      1. Traffic generates when there are links published on external sites (facebook, stumbleupon, blogs, other websites) that people click on to get to your hubs. Traffic also generates when you have many links coming from INside HubPages, like links going back and forth between your HubPages, from your profile page to your individual HubPages, and other promotional forums on which you are allowed to post links to your hubs (the HubMob forum is a great one!). All these links help Google value your articles as being more important. Also, do some keyword research (google has a great free keyword tool you can use) to make sure that you are using search terms that your readers will be able to find you under.

      2. How long before people start noticing your hubs? Usually a Hubber who is active in the HubPages community will easily pick up followers in a day or two from other Hubbers, and thus get many views and comments on their hubs from fellow hubbers almost immediately. These are great friends to have, but the traffic that brings money and clicks comes from search engines, which took me 5 to 6 months to get after I joined HubPages.

      Hope that helps!

    Common experience is that you will see a surge of readers from HubPages authors in the first 2 or 3 weeks.  This will then die down and organic (search engine) traffic will slowly increase.  It can take months or years (or maybe forever after Panda) before full potential is reached.

      Wow. Years huh?  Well I don't want to wait that long smile. Thanks for the input. I could use all the visitors that I can get.   When you get a chance, check 'em out and leave a comment.  I know they need some sort of improvement.  Constrctive criticism is always helpful. Thanks
