Xomba Review - a social bookmarking and revenue sharing site

Xomba
Xomba

Intro

I've been on HubPages for quite some time, but have just recently started taking it somewhat seriously. One of the areas I've been researching is backlinking. Backlinking is, essentially, adding links on other sites, such as social bookmarking sites, to your Hubs. Backlinking helps improve your ranking in Google search results. One of the newer and cooler sites for backlinking and promoting your Hubs is xomba.com. I explain the essentials about xomba.com in this article. For more information on backlinking, read my backlinking article here.

The Byte

  • Two of the cool things about Xomba are that you can use your existing HubPage Google AdSense account to generate revenue from Xomba, plus, like HubPages, you also get paid for referrals.
  • Xomba uses two unique terms that I found a bit confusing at first - Xombabyte and Xombablurb. A Xombabyte is basically just another term for a blog, article, or hub. A Xombablurb is a bookmark or link. I typically use Xombablurb's to link back (backlinking) to my HubPages. Right now, I've been doing all my writing on Hubpages and using other platforms like xomba.com and shetoldme.com  for backlinks.
  • Xomba has both a cool name and a pretty cool interface. The interface is not as intuitive as Hubpages, but it is better than most social bookmarking sites that I'm a member on.
  • Xomba has a Google Page Rank of 5. This is pretty decent, considering Xomba provides revenue sharing opportunities. I haven't found any social bookmarking sites with a Google Page Rank above 5 that also share revenue.

Summary

This is pretty simple...you've got nothing to lose by joining xomba.com. I suggest you check it out immediately and start promoting your hubs. I noticed a pretty decent increase in traffic, and associated AdSense and Amazon revenue, once I started promoting (backlinking) my hubs on sites such as xomba.com.


Google Search Results for SDVOSB

April 6, 2010 Update

I just wanted to post an update on the effectiveness of Xomba. I just published a hub - What is a SDVOSB. When I did a Google search for "SDVOSB," my link to this hub on Xomba showed up n the first 20 results, however, the direct HubPage link did not. I've noticed this with several of my other articles - the Xomba link shows up in the search results above the HubPage link. Just another reason to sign up for Xomba!

@Hello, Hello - thx for the comment. You just register only on xomba.com and you can post both xombablurbs or xombabytes. Hope this helps! Cheers.

I´ll bookmark this hub and make a note to myself to join Xomba through your referral. I´d like to get used to RedGage first and then sign up for other sites. Hope it doesn´t take long...

Can you post links to all of your hubs on Xomba (no limits)?

@Rebecca E - Cool...check out Xomba. I don't think it's as good as RedGage, but I get a decent amount of traffic from there and it is good for backlinks.

@vox vocis - cool...RedGage is better overall, based on my experience so far, but Xomba is good for revenue and traffic.

how do you link on Xomba I did a bookmark and they did not publish because it was a personal backlink? Any ideas?

    Sign in or sign up and post using a HubPages Network account.
