How many links do you typically need for a hub to get good traffic? What's your experience been? How do you go about? Where do you post links?
I've got hubs with over 100 top tier backlinks that google still ignores...
It's all about quality Of the backlinks, not how many you have
I've found commenting on blogs to be good places to start. Facebook and Pinterest are good for a bump every now and then. My best hub has 50-100 views from google per day. Still not sure how to replicate it with other hubs though. Anyone found success with bookmark sites?
I've found some success with reddit. For cycling related stuff it seems to generate a good 100-200 extra page views minimum and a PR 8 link and that's for stuff that doesn't go high up on their subject pages. The influx oif traffic seems to be very short term however.
I've used some of the other social bookmarking sites to very limited success that I can see in terms of visitor numbers.
My best links at present for bringing traffic come through commenting via the stackexchange site network which allows you to put a link in place. It's a Nofollow link but if you answer a question that's very popular the clickthrough can be very good.
Commenting on blogs and participating in forums is an excellent way to get backlinks, providing that you're actively participating and not using them just for the backlinks. Many blogs won't require you to be a subscribed member to the blog to comment, but will prompt you for a name, email address, and/or website address. When you provide your web address as your hubpages site, it will count as a backlink as part of the comment.
You do have to be very careful about mass-submitting your link to so-called backlink providers. The quality and trustworthyness of the site that is sending you the backlink is very important. If your link comes from a linkfarm, it will hurt you more than help.

IzzyM and I have been chatting about backlinking, and disagreeing on what's the best way to go about it. She's been spending hours backlinking her Hubs on social bookmarking and backlinking sites, because she feels...

I just wondered if anyone backlinked their backlinks, like putting Shetoldme links on Reddit for example. I'm seriously running outta ideas of how to get traffic.

I did not send some backlinks to some of my hubs recently, and yet they are receiving good traffic. Should I still backlink them anyway? Whats the primarily difference if I did or did not. I usually send 5-10 backlinks...

I've received 77 visitors from Ezine compared to 2k unique visitors from search engines. I'm wondering if the back link power is worth spending time writing the articles? I fail at doing them quickly. It usually taking...
