I have over 300 hubs but making less than $20 a month from Hubpages. I understand that I need to get more traffic to my hubs to increase my revenue. I have decided to do some backlinking at other web 2.0 sites and social bookmarking sites. I would like to know if this is the way forward. I would also like to start this with my hubs with maximum potential to earn revenue. How can I determine which hubs can earn me maximum revenue from all my hubs? Right now I rarely get 10 visitors on a few handful of my hubs. Rest hubs may be zero visitors or less than 10 visitors a day. All advice in this regard would be highly appreciated.
I could have written your post myself - with the exception that I only have 100 hubs, I get the same kind of traffic results. A handful of hubs gets 10 or 20 views, a bunch at 1-10 and about 25 get 0 each day.
I've never been a fan of backlinking, but know that many are and have made the same decision - I will try some backlinking and see what happens. I've now linked to each hub from redgage and shetoldme and have some on excerptz as well.
I'ts only been a week since I started, so I have no real results to report yet. Total traffic doesn't seem to have changed much - maybe up a bit but maybe not. At the same time I'm seeing more red arrows on non-performing hubs that get a few views and fall back the next couple of days. Probably from members on the sites although HP states show 0 visits from those three locations.
I don't expect 3 backlinks to do much and intend at this time to keep working on it with the hope of getting at least a few dozen to each hub.
With the number of hubs (and hoped for backlinks) I'm not interested in putting in 1/2 hour to each link - if you know of sites that quick and easy, I would appreciate the information.
To answer your question, though, the only real way I know to find performers is through google analytics, and you really should have signed up several months ago to get a good baseline to work from. HP statistics will also give an indication of how much traffic individual hubs gets, and is probably the second best indicator of potential.
My best advice is to write about things you like. Especially entertainment, shows you really like ETC.
Even after the Algo change I'm still not a big fan of backlinking, but I do in certain places.
It only takes 1 hub to make big money, and there are an infinite number of possibilities. Find what works for you and stick with it. I made so many different types of hubs, and some get hundreds of views weekly, some hubs would even get thousands weekly(back before the change).
Those hubs never were backlinked and the very next day I would get 100+ views, sometimes up to 400 on one hub. You just have to figure it out, and you just need to do them!
I appreciate your advice but I am not in favor of writing new hubs. I just want to increase traffic and revenue potential for my existing hubs.
Quility backlinking is the main SEO effort you can do to increase traffic.

IzzyM and I have been chatting about backlinking, and disagreeing on what's the best way to go about it. She's been spending hours backlinking her Hubs on social bookmarking and backlinking sites, because she feels that's been recommended on the forums by Hub gurus. I'm not at all sure that's...

I was wondering how often a hub should be social bookmarked and if my internet history is deleted i do not know which hubs I bookmarked. I don't want to be considered a spammer. How many hubs do you guys bookmark at a given time and do you usually bookmark the low traffic or high or?

Am beginning to notice that there is little or insignificant difference in the traffic i get from search engines to the hubs i backlink and those i did not backlink.Does it mean we can do equally well in hubpages with or without backlinks?Anybody ever noticed that?Happy hubbing to all you...

Fine, the forum has lots of people that claims they make thousands of dollars every month. I doubt 98% of them. From my experience, I may want to believe Ryankett because I've seen most of his backlinking works on various sites.If you make that much every month, voice it out and help breath...
