It's worth keeping what he says in mind if you link to your hubs from your other web 2.0 properties (eg infobarrel) or from your blog.

Do a Google search on "Click here" and you will find the home page of Adobe as the vast majority of the links online to download Adobe say - "Click here".. So Anchor text is still a high ranking factor as to what traffic Google will send to a site...

I keep up with Google news fairly regularly to see what's coming down the pipe. I still feel vague self-righteousness over raising the pre-Panda alarm, only to be scoffed at for suggesting that Google might start...

Ok, so since the Penguin update I have sat here listening to lots of Hubbers complain of loss of traffic. Now we're not talking a little fluctuation in numbers, we are talking 80% gone overnight! For people...
