    how did you manage to get to 10k visits or how long did it take you to achieve it? besides quality content because I know for a fact that even if it is top notch content you still need to do things in order to get views like backlinking whatever that is.

      My 10 k came in 6 months without backlinking just face book, friend,HP traffic and Google traffic made that possible ...it was after panda that traffic slumped .

      It took about 11 weeks to reach 10,000 hits....my pace has increased as the amount of hubs I have created has gone up....I am just under 50,000 hits after 8 months.  I think adding my links to facebook themed pages has done wonders for my traffic.

      Your factual knowledge about backlinking or other traffic strategies is wrong.  I went far beyond that with no other effort than keyword research and on page SEO.  I didn't do any backlinking at all until I was over 90,000 views and not much then (or now).

    I do n't know, it was not through backlinking,face book or Twitter as I hardly ever bother with the first and never with the second and third.

    I think the title helps, if you think what might be typed into a search engine on your selected topic for the hub.

    Use highly search but low competition keywords and use it on the on-page and off-page SEO of your hub.

      find a topic you want to write about, then type how you think you would search it into google insights and the adword keyword tool to figure out how it's searched. Check out the competition for said phrases. Promote your content on forums that are discussing a similar topic (without spamming). Have a blogger account and wordpress account that talk about the same subject and link back to your HP.

      If you really put in the time and write an article a day there's no reason to not hit 10k (total) in a month.

        Thank you so much brandonhart100! I guess discipline is something that must be learned too. I'm sure it takes discipline to have everything done on a daily basis.

      I agree, it is great to read that people can reach that target fairly quickly without much backlinking! Thankyou

        @Talia J, true. The same applies to keyword stuffing. We all understand how important these are with everything associated to the web. Backlinking is more tolerable than keywords forced within articles to the point that they no longer make sense. I've seen a lot of them online. I haven't any in HubPages so far though so that's a good thing.

    Find something a lot of people really want to know about, write a well-written, well-researched hub on it, and put a few strategically-placed backlinks. I have one hub that has gotten almost 5,000 views alone. It's something that people wonder about every day, and the hub thoroughly answers the question people are wondering about.
