    How can we promote our blog, website or products using the power of hubpages.
    Can you share your expertise.

    I haven't used Hubpages a whole lot, but the main strategy is to write an informative article and submit it to hubpages, and link back to your website or blog using that article. You have to be careful, however, about being overly self promotional, because hupages tends to crack down pretty hard on that kind of a thing...

    Hubpages are like parasite sites. You use Hubpages, Squidoo and your own site and create oneway links between them.

    1. Do some keyword research and pick up a few long tail key words.
    2. Write 3 articles
    3. Now post one each in Squidoo, hubpages, and your site. Link hubpage article to squidoo and squidoo to your web site.
    4. Repeat the process with other keywords. Sometime link Squidoo pages to hubpages and hubpage to your site.
    5. Ad a few more sites in the wheel.

    Places like Hubpages and Squidoo allow you to create mini pages, without all the hassle of purchasing a domain and setting up your hosting. On Squidoo they're called "Lenses". They're very similar to blogs.

    I'm personally more familiar with Squidoo, which is relatively easy to use, altho as GetaGrip mentioned regarding Hubpages, they crack down on promotional pages that border to closely to spam.

    The popularity of these types of sites come from the fact that they are easy to navigate, offer a wide variety of customization options as well as offering you a variety of ways to profit from your efforts.

    For example Squidoo allows you to include "modules"(sections you can add from your editing page) on your pages that pull content from sites like Ebay and Amazon.(just to name a couple-there are many many more). When those ads on your page make sales, you receive a portion of the profit.

    Many people use these pages to promote their own businesses/products/charities or simply their ideas and viewpoints.
    As mentioned above, you can use them to help create useful backlinks to your main site, or even just to help add to the volume of content you already have appearing in search engines.

    Hope that wasn't too confusing! Let us know if you have more questions!

    hmm... it is similar to article submission. You write articles with backlink/information regarding your product website and than submit to hubpages/squiddo etc. Just make the content informative and unique to be accepted into the system.
    hope this has helped you.

    I personally have gotten a lot more traffic and income from Squidoo. Hubpages and squidoo are similar however from my experience squidoo seems to get a lot more traffic.

    By connecting the sites with links you get backlinks. Good backlinks are a must to get the site ranked high enough to get to first page of Google, Yahoo etc. Of course, you need good keywords/phrases. All basic SEO stuff. If you don't understand then you need to study.
