Years ago, I was already on HP and had numerous links in my articles. However, these links regularly broke. I interrupted my work with HP for several months, and when I came back now, all my items were broken because all the links broke while I was away.
Since then, HP changed the surface. I started from zero again. And this time I have no links to my articles. However, my score fell within 3 days since I started again, and today it stands at 5.
So, my question is, do have links an impact to the score?
I'm not sure if links in hubs have an impact on the hub or your hubber'ss core, but I do know that they can help (a tiny bit) in Google's search results. Matt Cutts at Google has said that linking to other recognized, authority sites from your site will increase trust (slightly) in the linking site. Increased trust means (potentially) more visibility in search results.
don't worry about your hub score it will increase automatically when your hub has its stuff.And one kind advise don't use external links to your hubs because external link might broke and you will not be noticing that all time. recommendation use internal links to hub which will increase your traffic and your hub score. Thank you.
First, scores aren't important, they're just there to stroke your ego. It is good to have a few links going out to other related websites (not other Hubs, unless they're your own), because Google likes to see that.
Well, I joined 6 days ago and only after 2 days my score arrived at its lowest, at 4. But I just kept commenting, answering and asking and writing at least and so I started growing until today. And right now it is at 42 - after 4 days :-)
The main benefit of adding outgoing links is to impress Google. If you place those links in the body of your text, especially if they're early in your article, there's always a risk that your reader will click on an outgoing link before they click on one of your ads - not what you want. So personally, I always put them at the end.
As I know Google is much more impressed by links coming in than by links going out because this shows Google that your content is worthy and important. Why else should other sites link to our site if it´s not?
Lisa, it's all about building up connections; you can do this in several ways:
- Guest blogging - Approaching other bloggers (not HP) on topics similar to what you write about and offering to write for them in return for a link to your page. As an example, because I write about Google Plus, I also guest blog for Google Plus Daily, a popular blog about Google Plus
- Build authority and expertise - Join other communities and share your expertise freely, building up a reputation
- Post to social media and add value to the communities there; although these aren't 'strong' backlinks, they do draw attention to your work and it may get mentioned or linked to outside that social network
- Answer questions on sites like Quora on related topics, including a link back to your hub where it will add additional value
- Contact influencers in your field and share your work with them
I've used all of these techniques and am starting to build up a healthy backlink profile; it does take a bit of time, but is worth it IMHO.
One way to get this is linking to your very own hubs within your hubs.
Second you can set a link to your HP profil within your facebook profil or twitter profil. Actually you can put a link to your HP profil or special hubs at every single profil you have in the net, like google+, yahoo, linkedIn or so.
Third you may have a youtube channel and some videos on. Place a link to your hub at very first place within your video discription. You can even have videos on several channels like metacafe, vimeo or so linking to your hubs. You can easily upload videos to all this channels at once by using tubemogul or trafficgeyser. I published an article about this topic.
