How do you get people to read your writings,do people just stumble upon other people's stories/poems?
It just depends.. Hubpages offer a lot of promoting tools. Look at the bottom of your published article and there should be a link that says "Share this". That'll get you up and running..
Other than that, learn about SEO and page promotion. There's probably a thousand articles here that explain how to do that. Just do a search and you'll find more information that you'll know what to do with.
Oh, and welcome to HubPages!
First of all welcome to hub and yes if you want your content should be read by all people then you should write unique content, be a active member of hub pages, make friends related to your niche, that's it!

Welcome to HubPages, Lady! My advice to you is to be active in the forums and just keep writing. You'll get the hang of it in no time
/\ Hi, Urbane
Welcome to hubpages! You will have a lot of fun writing in here and getting to know people.
My answer to your question is tags. How you tag your hub will depend on what you are writing about. When you start your hub, always remember to click on the two boxes below your title and give it a place in hub pages...these are your first two...then ad tags at the right hand side of your hub after you finish writing it where it says tags. Use words that go with your writing...always stay on track, and there is a tag tool, if you click on it, it will give you suggestions to add to the tags.
This is how people find hubs and articles to read, they use keyword searches and your tags will come up in the search..
Hope this helps and happy writing to you!!
One thing that I was told, is when you write something, make sure that your keywords are proper, like make sure that at least one keyword is also in the title of your hub. If you have a lot of good keywords, then when someone who is researching a topic, or looking for info. on that subject, your hub will come up.
This must work, for I have hits coming in from Yahoo search and netzero search. Not many but a few. That must be from the keywords. Also visit around and read other peoples hubs, and join their fan club, and then as others do the same to you, they all add up and there are people reading your stufff.l
Loads of stuff on HubPages about driving traffic to your Hubs and SEO. Just use the search box and read Hubs and forum threads on the subject.
The most important thing to do is write great content - over time this will naturally attract readers. Patience is everything here at HubPages.
Hi ladypatience, welcome aboard!
Choose a great title and write about what you are passionate about and also what other people would like to read . You could also go to the idea bank and choose topics you are comfortable with.Also you could join the hubmob every week.
Welcome to HubPages.
The easiest way I found to get your Hubs read is to partake in the forums and get to know some of your fellow hubbers.
This is the most sound advice I can give. I know, it works.
Welcome to hub pages. I'm not sure that I can add anything more than what everyone else has already said. It's all good advice. I will stop by and check out your hubs.

I have been on Hub Pages about a year and I have written about 27 Hubs and they have received close to 5000 views, which I felt was not bad and my status hovers between 82-88. Last week I had about 8 of my Hubs featured, which again seemed ok. Now magically overnight, I have all these codes now...

When I read tutorials my head spins. So please give me an example using my topic: a recipe for baked salmon. If the title is "How to make Herb-crusted baked salmon", and I use the phrases "salmon fillet" "fish" throughout the hub, that's not optimizing right? Examples...
