I've looked, but can't find an answer to this. Are our hubs/articles submitted by hubpages into any article directories such as stumbledapon, digg, or to the major search engines? I know you need to both of those to create backlinks to new web sites - I wasn't sure if we had to do that same plan to our hubs.
How exactly does hubpages get the word out about our hubs? Or is it totally on us to do that?
Hubs are not submitted automatically to social bookmarking sites or article directories.
As for the search engines, their spiders crawl your hubs automatically.
It can take a couple of days for search engines to index your hub so people can find it searching. You or others have to submit it to social networking sites to get the traffic from there though.
Below your hubs you have all those icons to help you submit your articles to article directories.. but that is for you to do them manually.
Hubpages does not greatly approve those automated article submission and spinning software.. ensure that you consider your options carefully.
