    I'm looking for new places besides Facebook, Twitter, Digg and Reddit to post hubs that will generate views. Any ideas?

        Thanks labnol and the practical Mommy. Do you submit every hub? If so how often? Do you ever submit it again in a few weeks? Just wondering what you do to increase viewership after a hub starts to fall??

          Its totality up to u..Kelly..
          I don't use it much but  if you have good content then you surely gets good visits every day...

          Very popular articles get even thousand views every day.... :-)

          Stumble Upon is great for getting lots of views, but you won't get many clicks.  If you submit your hubs, make sure you stumble articles and photos from other sites besides Hubpages.  Only stumbling articles from one or two sites may get your account banned for spam. They don't want people to abuse it as a promotional tool.

      Try google +1. I use it every time I post a new hub and it works for me.

        SarahBodo Thanks for your suggestion. Do you set it up with all your friends or do you just click post to all? Also how many views should I expect to get per day? Just new here and wondered? I know it depends on the material but if it's something average how many would you expect to receive?

      I use Google+, twitter, social monkee, FB, stumbleupon and Digg. I also read  blogs and leave comments with my HP URL.

        That's a lot of effort, Cardisa, and like GreekGeek says, the links aren't worth much in Google's eyes these days.

          I don't do it for the link, I do it to get them to reciprocate and come read my stuff...lol I don't do it religiously either because I have been getting good Google traffic naturally anyway.

            As you're finding, real traffic from friends and acquaintances is a drop in the bucket compared to the traffic you get from Google. 

            I have feeds set up through Twaitter to auto-tweet my Hubs, and one of my blogs is set up as a RSS feed on my Facebook profile, but I don't bother with other social bookmarking stuff these days.

              I really love my friends and appreciate their support but after they read once then that's it but there are millions searching on the net each day, I need some of that...lol

              I have no idea how to auto-retweet. Melbel suggested I use twitter the way I am supposed to by tweeting other stuff, not just sharing my link but I am no good with Social networks.

                You can set up your Hub feed on Twaitter, so every time you post a new Hub, it issues a Tweet.

                  Just so you know, an auto posted feed will just tweet the title and link to your hub.  If you want to engage your followers, you need to pose them a question or ask a favor and unless this is in the title of your hub, you stand little chance of getting someone to click through.

                    Marisa Wrightposted 6 years agoin reply to this

                    Yes I know.  I have zero interest in Twitter but was told I had to at least set up the feed - so I did.  I have no idea whether that does any good!

    WryLiltposted 6 years ago

    I personally rarely or never post any of my online content to social bookmarking or media sites, for three reasons:

    1. The traffic is often a 'one hit wonder' which means that you might get a few thousand hits one day and they'll be gone the next.

    2. The backlinks are usually nofollow.

    3. Most of the traffic is low quality - don't expect (m)any sales or ad clicks.

    Plus, if you post to Facebook, friends might try and "help" you by clicking multiple adverts and get you banned from Adsense.

      Thanks WryLit. So do you just post it and then let the cards fall where they may? Or how do you get traffic to your hubs?

        WryLiltposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        I use good keywords. Traffic comes on its own.

      Aside from Facebook, I will post links to my content only to the social networks that I am involved with; meaning sites that I have taken the time to build a 'network' of followers.  If you post a link to Stumbleupon and have nobody following you then there is nearly no chance anyone is actually going to find your link.  For those networks to 'work' you need to cultivate them as you do here and on Facebook by checking out your friends links and participating with them.

      Backlinks will come because your network will share the links as well, providing the link is useful, and the backlinks will grow over time which will then provide you with position in the SERPs and bring you 'quality' traffic.

      I stopped auto posting my hubs to Facebook about a year and a half ago because I didn't want my friends doing exactly what Wrylit suggests they might do.  No need to take a chance like that, besides getting traffic from friends and family is not quality traffic.

    You can create comments on blogs and leave there your link.

    If you have a blog you can add a HubPages widget to that, if you set it to latest it will show about three of your latest hubs. However, it is not possible to set it so that it only displays from one category or 'niche' so sometimes the hubs displayed are not related to the subject your blog is about.


    I sometimes use RedGage for a link to a hub and you can add your profile URL to your profile there. The site can be a little glitchy but it is a friendly place and you can get a cash bonus to your earnings if something you post is featured or if you enter the daily competition and win.

    Do you use Yahoo! Answers?  You can post links in your answers, so long as you don't do it for every question.

    WryLilt's comments on the futility of social bookmarking reflect my own views as well, especially the part about "temporary burst of traffic, but no value as backlinks."

    In general, I think on-page optimization (keyword optimization, images, etc) and linking between related, relevant pages are the way to go. (Forget linking between your unrelated articles. Why on earth would a link on a page about baboons help a page on squids? But it might help a page on other primates.) You want long-term traffic, not a quick burst of traffic, and long-term traffic comes from having your page rank well on search engines for particular search terms.

    However, there's one caveat. Social media has begun to impact and shape search engine results in a subtle but important way.

    In the past year, search engines have begun taking social factors into account -- very selectively. They don't count just anyone's social bookmarks. They only count social shares by respected authorities who have earned search engines' trust ("if Danny Sullivan says it's a good article on SEO, then it almost certainly is relevant to the search term "SEO".)

    What that means is that you have to build up a solid reputation by sharing only good, relevant stuff and by contributing original remarks and commentary that are genuinely valued. If you have a lot of followers, if people tend to share your Tweets or bookmarks or other social interactions, if the authority members on social networks like Danny Sullivan and Stephen Fry and Neil Gaiman are following you and/or sharing your links, then those social links can have huge value as a backlink.

    Unfortunately, this also means it's a good idea to join Google Plus and establish a professional presence there, although I have so far resisted doing so because I'm opposed to Google's real names policy and the idea that our content's search ranking may be influenced by our membership on Google. That's an insidious model I hate. But it is becoming a model one can choose to exploit ... or not.

    The key is that if you indiscriminately share all your content, regardless of the quality, search engines will not consider your social media memberships as that of an "authoritative source," and those shares will therefore have no search engine or longterm value for traffic. If you instead build a reputation by sharing and posting outstanding things, you may begin to get a benefit. It's reputation management, to put it bluntly, and if you want any benefit from social shares, you had better start establishing yourself as a writer with something substantial to say.

    It's not easy, either. Most of us can't have the clout of a Neil Gaiman or Seth Godin. But there's no harm in raising your standards on what you share and doing what you can to post meaningful things. Unfortunately, as I well know, the temptation to share whatever you've just finished writing -- even if it's only a rather humble article -- is often too great to resist!

      Thanks for the info. I think I need to really re-think how I have shared so far. I need to be more discriminate. Thanks!

    Twitter / Facebook / Stumbleupon / 360

    Redgage / Xomba / Digg / shetoldme / Buzz

    Delicious / Yahoo Answers (if they relate to Question)

    Include them in Answers to Questions on Hubpages too, but ensure they relate.

    G/Luck.

    All helpful suggestions and viewpoints. I have tried Stumble and had limited success, but I'm a newbie and just testing the waters when I have time.  Between my freelance writing gigs and doing hubs I haven't had much time for anything else.  Thanks for the input and advice.

    Okay, here's one question.

    Is it possible to sync all of this bookmarking sites that whenever I stumble one website I liked, it will all at the same time be posted in all of my bookmarking sites?

    Is this possible? Is there such a feature or program or software?

    1. WryLilt profile image90
      WryLiltposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      There are numerous ways to do this, all different programs/sites. Some you just insert your link each time and it is distributed, in other ones you can simply give them your RSS feed and they update automatically.

      Facebook and Twitter will allow you to connect and your status/tweet will automatically be sent to the other.

      Do a search for programs or sites, there are lots out there. smile
