    I am new on the hub scene and enjoying the adventure already. I was wondering  how to get noticed and increase visitors and followers. I was informed that there's a potential to make a small income from visitors not only visiting your hub but utilizing the ads on the page. Awaiting advice....

      Treat it as a learning experience. There are a lot of hubs explaining how to get more traffic, but those that do get good traffic have written a lot of hubs and have been here a long time. Every time you write a new hub, people look at what you've written in the past. Think of building a collection rather than just writing a few random hubs.

    Here's some really good advice,

    After that all I have to say is that it takes more than two days and one Hub.

    Internal traffice (followers and other hubbers) doesn't bring you money and only lasts a few days after publication.

    If you want money you need to attract views from search engines. For some good hubs with in depth information about it, check out the links on my profile.

    As relache said, there is TONS of information if you are willing to learn, and it can't just be summed up in one post.

    I agree with QuestionMaster.  For an in depth look at SEO I just posted a comprehensive Hub that you can find from my profile page.  If you want to monetize, your goal when posting a HubPage should be to bring visitors from outside the Hub community.

    How hard is it to reply to someone instead of sending them to links?

    If you want traffic, you need to write around topics that are searched for, and use a search friendly term to title your hub.

    Don't paraphrase what someone else has already written online.

    Benefits of cider vinegar, for example. Google it, and every one has written the same whether true or not.

    Might use different words, but they all say the same.

    Once you have your title, and your article, you then need to re-write that article for search engines.

    I don't bother, but I should. Search engines are not human, they are bots, they look for certain keyword phrases on your page. Not there, and they gloss you over, no matter how well written your content is.

    I haven't looked at what the OP has written, but he needs to ask himself (or find out) is it searched for? Have I optimized it for traffic?

    Get it right, and the traffic will come.

    The best way to get sites noticed by the search engines quickly is to post them on Twitter, Stumbleupon, Digg which are already located in your share menu at the foot of each hub. You can also ping a new hub...after the search engines index it, Hubpages articles usually rank quite high on their own and then traffic will follow

      Richie please do not advise new hubbers to use those sites - facebook and twitter are one thing, but the others - Digg, Stumbleupon etc want some kind of user participation, and just posting links marks them as a spammer which is sure to get them banned.

      The share tools are the bottom of hubs is for readers to share if they enjoyed them, not the hub author.

    I have to spread thank you's all around for you guys sharing information on my questions and concerns. I am trying to get a hang of the lingo on hub and between hubbers. Meanwhile just enjoying a place to share our passion-writing. So how do I submit my hub for availability through search engines like google, dogpile, or bing?

      Their bots will pick your hub up automatically, so i wouldn't bother doing anything, except concentrate on writing a good hub for the reader.

      Write a really good hub, then people who read it will want to share it with their friends. Google etc will pick it up, but there's nothing like writing something so good that others will want to share. But that takes time. Be patient and keep writing.

      If you ping your new Hubs right after publishing, they will get indexed by Google faster. I've had Hubs get to page 2 on the first day of publishing. I use Ping O Matic. It's easy. Don't ping them repeatedly though. If you do a major rewrite or update of a hub, you can ping again
