    Hi everyone,

    I'd love to hear how you are using HP for your SEO efforts. Any tips or suggestions? I run a celebrity gossip site and use links from my hubs to feed traffic. I also have so e customized ads that I created from Bannersnack that are linked to a few of my hubs here.

    Thanks!

      I'm beginning to change the titles of older hubs that I feel were pretty good but never got enough traffic. The original URL is still kicking around somewhere, but the same hub will be able to be found on Google under the new title. Just a thought.

    Hi,
    If you are interested in getting links, I would suggest create hubs related to your niche and ensure that anchor text is correct for you to get enough link juice.
    And please let me know if you are able to generate dofollow backlinks being a 95 and plus score your selves.

    Actually, these days it's no longer very effective to build only anchortext links. It's better to have variety. So a simply 'more here' link can also work. As long as the visitor is clear about what they will find at the other end of that link. Focus on the user first - anchortext and other link-schemes second.

    Anchortext links are an old technique now recoignized as "Spammy" from Google post-Panda algorithms. I would suggest using the brand name instead.
    And Misterhollywood, to get back to your original question, yes I do use HP for SEO.

    However what I have noticed from those conversations is that the "SEO" meaning has been confused, as there are two separate levels:
    - Hubs are good to build back-links to the site money;
    - Hubs are good to be found in Google themselves and bring traffico to the site money (more traffic to the site = better rankings).

    Thanks for reading!

    Roberto, can you please, say more abot the anchor links? Why they are taken as spam? Never heard that kind of statment before. I am not questioning your statment but do you have any leading article ab out it?

    Hi Greg, avoid using anchor text of you main keyword is now well recognized in SEO communities and you can find this on many articles around the web.
    The general approach to backlinks text would be using:
    50% Brand Anchors
    20% Naked Links
    20% Generic
    Generic anchors include “click here”, “go here”, or “check this out”.
    5% Keyword Variations
    5% Exact Match Anchors (or less)

    let me know if you guys would like to discuss this further
