Boost your website traffic in 30 minutes!

Updated on October 6, 2012

The problem with site promotion

Chances are, if you have your own website a key reason for it is to make money. However, to make money you're going to have to bring people into your website. The problem is, so many bossiness' and niches are over saturated. Thankfully though, there's a great way out with of Facebook and Twitter for you to get a high ranking backlink (ideally on page one of Google) that will advertise your site.

The solution

So, how exactly can you boost your site traffic? It's simple, sign up for HubPages and make a hub of your website. The great thing about HubPages is that it's a PR10 site, so when anyone puts up a Hub, 9/10, when the relevant keywords are searched for in Google, you'll find your Hub on the first page of Google.

One thing you need to remember when doing all of this though is to actually include a link (preferably twice) to your website into the Hub. If you don't do this, this'll reduce potential visitors to your site since they won't want to search for it.

Lets look at some quick examples of this:
If you put in 'MyLikes Scam', 'Boycott the SNP' '720p video windows live movie maker' and 'Scoobys Workshop Review' into Google, you'll see that they're all on page one! The reason for this is that I've carefully selected the title of my Hub to reflect the most probable keyword search that people will perform.

Now, you might be thinking that your website does have a good keyword in it. Let's say for example that you sell t-shirts and your website name is xzy. What you could name your Hub is 'High quality t-shirts: WEBSITE NAME HERE'. That way you're still including a strong keyword in the title, but it's also alerting people to your wesbite name.

A crucial aspect however is to include a summary for your Hub, since this is what they'll see in the Google search results. Make it something interesting so that they'll be drawn in to clicking on it. Also, make sure you put in other keywords when creating the Hub. Using the t-shirt example again, you could use cotton shirt, cotton t-shirt etc to make sure that it increases your visibility to Google. Just don't over do it with the keywords in both the keyword section and also in the Hub itself.

By taking around 30 minutes to make a Hub about your website, you'll help your site in the long run, plus you'll make some money from HubPages, too!

      I totally agree. By doing so, you're getting relevant backlinks to your site from a great source, instead of dubious, spammy blackhat methods.

      Thanks for the kind words :)

      I would say it's a good idea to link to your website when your website is relevant to any article you're writing. Say you have a website about recipes and you're writing about how to save money - you could link to your website when talking about cheap food recipes. That way it's much more natural. Anyway, great post!

      Very interesting idea. I'm developing a new site and I'm going to do this when it's up. Thank you for sharing.

      Thanks for the comment. Oh, I didn't know it was PR 6, although like you said, pretty good none the less. Yep, moderation is key when using HubPages for promotion.

      Interesting hub, yes writing a hub about your website is a good way to get backlinks and maybe some traffic, just don't overdo it. By the way, Hubpages is a PR 6, which is still pretty good. I don't think there are any PR 10 websites, google is PR 9.
