So you have written your hub. You have done your title search and SEO and now everyone who is following you and a few others maybe, have read it and made a comment. You may have re-edited your hub, as you saw room for improvement. It is time to share it with the world.
If you are unfamiliar with the concepts of SEO and Title issues. The hubs listed below, should help you to understand these ideas.
On each hub you will find links to Facebook, Twitter and Google+ and your followers. Hubpages put these links there for us to use, To share your work on these social networks.This is an old and reliable way of doing things, and it still works well.
Google + Meet The Future
If you haven't got a Google + account yet I would suggest you get one, and pronto. The big difference on Google+ is that other users actively ask to join your 'circles' when they read your content. If they like it. If they don't, they do not join your circles or ask to be in your circles. You do not have to accept a request to be in your circles, they will still see what you share publicly on Google+. Your circles should contain people that are important to you. So a family circle is private and only view-able by other family members.
You can decide what circles you want. Your readership will still grow without any intervention from you. So you build a new readership based on the content you have already produced. Your content is 'attracting' and audience, rather than you having to actively market your hubs. This in my opinion is the way to go. Google+ spotted this gap in the market and has produced the program G+ that you can use to find your wide audience.
Or more accurately they can find you. This largely depends on those little Google + buttons. The more people that press those Google + buttons on your hubs the higher your hub is ranked by the Google search algorithm, so putting it into even more peoples views. It is a positive feedback loop. This is a very clever innovation by Google, as the hub is being ranked by real human 'votes' and not clever manipulation of the search engines.
Remember when you post your new hub, it appears in your followers feeds so you do not have to re-post to them. Whether you write about knitting or tourist information, about where you live. You need to share it. While you can wait for organic growth from the search engines, you can give it a little assistance, as mentioned above. Instead of waiting for months, for the search engines to fully catch on, that your hub is brilliant, as used to be the case. Using these methods, will speed up the time, that the search engines need, to rank your work higher. As it is being voted up in real time by real humans. So it is considered to be of a higher value.
Careful Placement In Social Networks
Social networks. Don't just drop your hub anywhere. Carefully place it, in an area that it relates to. Use a little finesse! if you are doing flower arranging drop it into a florists forum or flower arranging site, and leave a comment explaining what your hub is about. You can do this on as many sites as you like. Just check the sites TOS on placing links. Most are fine but just check first, you do not want to be seen as a spammer. Your single hub potentially, could be dropped into countless millions of sites. And it would take years just doing this. So be selective. Go for active sites. i.e.sites that have many active users.
Secondly get the habit of sharing other hubbers work. They will in turn also share your hubs and not just to fellow hubbers. You need to share other hubbers work to your Facebook groups and other social networks. Not forgetting Google +. Your friends on these social sites are more likely to read a hub recommended by you. The same applies to hubbers sharing your work to their networks. Again do not overdo it. Nobody likes getting a constant stream of hubs whatever the quality. Again be selective and thoughtful about who you share and how often.
Many People Still Use Email?
Put your hubs on your emails that you send, just one hub and targeted. Send hubs to friends that you know will enjoy them and ask them to share them with friends who they think will also enjoy them. You have something to celebrate and share, you are an active writer, show your friends and ask them to pass it on. Eventually you may want to leave some of this type of marketing behind. It is a good place to start and to learn, how to do a little internet marketing.
It is however, the old way of doing things and it does still work. For how much longer is debatable. When you start to harness the power of Google+, and you have been using it for a few months, you will see your organic growth increasing. Google + is the future of social networking and organic growth is their stated goal.
My organic growth is currently 71% of page views after 9 months. I don't know if that is a good or bad growth rate but it proves that it works. I have also picked up several hundred readers too on all the social networks. People just follow me. For some reason I am very popular in India, Indonesia and North America, as seen from my Google Analytic's.
Write something helpful
It may have something to do with a hub I wrote on how to fix Google Chrome's insecure content warning. Which has been shared extensively on the Google forums. This hub gets 100's of page views per day, and has done, since I published it in March 2012.
Getting in now on Google+ plus, gives you 'first mover' advantage; as you have the opportunity to grow your readership while this social network is still relatively new. Good luck and remember to earn while you learn. Time is too precious to waste.
