Drawing Traffic to Websites

    What are the best websites to create in order to get traffic and visitors.  Should it be websites or blogs that will draw more visitors?

      I dont understand... are you trying to get traffic to from your blog to your hub? If you are then...

      I would make a blog. Then you can make a small blog post about your hub. And add a link to your hub. I think this would work pretty good, but you should specify the blog on one topic, like golfing, fishing, or how-to.

        Not relating to hubs at all, when I wrote the question.  Just a question to ask whether it is better to blog or to setup a website for specific topics, maybe like golf or fishing or cooking.  Blogging probably I will go into various topics, as it is a periodical thing to update, and can talk of different subjects at different time.  Of course, it will be a bonus to link it to my hubs eventually. smile

    Most professional bloggers just blog on one subject. That way the search engines don't get confused about the subject matter.

    If you want a good platform use wordpress.org (not .com)

      Agree with you that blogging on a single subject will make it simpler.  Believe my wordpress login still there, haven't used it for quite sometime.  Thanks for highlighting the part of one subject, goes to show I am no professional blogger.. :-)

        You must have a .com in that case - .org is the one where you pay for hosting and is much more worth it traffic wise.

    My experience, Wordpress is the easy way to draw traffic, but you have to learn and what plugins which you have to add on the blog.
