OK, What should I do after writing the hub? How can I get traffic for the hub? Will the hub get traffic automatically or do I need to promote it?
How can I get it listed on social bookmarking sites?
Before writing a hub, do a bit of research about keywords, and make sure the main keyword is in the hub title & URL.
When the hub is published, drop short descriptions of it to mixx, zimbio and searchles.
Write an article and submit it to eazinearticles and goarticles, for a start.
Find relevant blogs and post meaningful comments.
Participate in Yahoo! answers, but don't overuse because they can ban you.
Of course you should always link back to your hub, preferably with a slightly different anchor.
I do it this way. Of course every experienced hubber has some favourite promotion techniques. It's easy to find a LOT of them if you use the forum search.
Just be prepared to wait for some months before traffic starts climbing up.
I couldn't understand about ' Write an article and submit it to eazinearticles and goarticles'. What should I submit? Should I submit the hub?(if yes, will it not count as duplicate)
I am a bit alien to all these things (never mind my stupidity)
WRITE AN ARTICLE.
(using the keywords you chose for your Hub)
SUBMIT IT TO ARTICLE DIRECTORIES
(they will allow you to include a link to your Hub in the Author bio box).
Your article should make people excited to read more on the topic - which they do by visiting your Hub.
Thank you Inspirepub for clearing things up. I miss on details
I made a typoo - there should have been ezinearticles, not eAzinearticles. But I believe Google is smart enough to recognize it correctly and list the needed directory anyway.

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...

Because of the way we have rolled out Article Q&A on a site-by-site basis, there are some network sites that have substantially more questions with their own URLs than others. Rest assured, we haven’t seen any direct correlation between changes in traffic and the ratio of questions on a site....

I've been using a variety of social bookmarking sites to increase traffic and for the do-follow links, due to a great hub by Ryankett, thanks Ryan!! Recently though, on a few sites like Kirsty or Wagg, even after several months, my bookmarks are all marked as "submitted", but none of them...

I was getting quite a bit of traffic from Stumbleupon, but the last while I notice it hasn't been accepting my submissions from Hubpages. They say that it's to prevent people from abusing the sytem and just promoting one site all the time. Does anybody know of a way around this?

I am wondering if these different sites that host articles (like hub pages, squido, xomba, triond, etc.) are better for certain types of writing and other sites for other writing types. If one were to write something here and it does not preform well maybe it would be better hosted on a different...

How do you get your traffic?I noticed you have a great deal of traffic on your hubs. I am at 33 hubs and hope to have 100 by Thanksgiving but I am only getting about 40-50 views per day total for all my hubs. Social bookmarking sites have proven useless for me so far. Do you practice backlinking or...
