    Hello everyone. I am a new hubber and have just two hubs. I was wondering how I should start out and start getting traffic.

      Welcome to HP.  I can really offer no advice on getting traffic.  I have done nothing but publish hubs. smile

        So, which sites are giving you the most traffic.

          #1 is search engine traffic but I do receive nice traffic from FB and Twitter shares.  I only share my hub once on Facebook when first published.  I get links put in to forums on a regular basis which is always fun, watching people discuss your hub.  smile

        Ugh - I didn't even notice the hubs were copied content.

    Hello, and welcome glorywriter... I suggest you search the forum here. There are many similiar questions archived. There is also the learning center... you can access from your page. Under your name and account and all that... it is verrrry useful.

    Hi glorywriter!

    Welcome to Hubpages!

    It takes time and articles to get traffic. The learning center has a lot of great articles on keyword research, etc.

    You really want Google traffic (from original searches) and it takes a while for your hubs to rise through the ranks - I have a several hubs that never see any traffic, and others that do really well. The trick is to write about a few different areas and see what gets you the traffic hits - be aware that after publishing, you'll see a burst of activity from Hubpages views, then a drop-off as those views dissipate and your articles are not being found through a search engine - the views should rise over time, but it can be a slow process.

    Your writing is good - try to use original or properly attributed photos in your articles (wikimedia commons, flickr, etc. are great sources for public domain photos).

      Thanks Leah. I know that Google takes time but is there something that I can do at the moment.

    Hi, glory writer
    The biggest help for me is the learning center - especially the parts about topics, keywords, etc.  In addition to being well written and interesting, hubs that do well have good format.  Your fruit hub is a great example.  It takes about 1 month for my hubs to appear on the first page or two of google.  You can use Facebook or Pinterest to get hubs out there, but those hits are usually short lived.  Just my thoughts.  Good luck, and welcome to HubPages!

    I have read your hubs. Simple and not much words. Still, I like them. Do write more about your family or about your studies. Would be interesting to read. I am following u.
