I am fairly new to this hubpages and i do not know how to do a back link. Can someone tell me specificially how and to what sites?
Kristie, do you want a backlink that points to you hub, or you want to link to something outside HP from your hub?
What up misha. lol. Well I was reading someplace, lol, to get traffic you have to create backlinks. But i dont know what kind either. lol
One of the types on backlinks are bookmarks. But either way you have to figure first what words you want to use in those links
Idk i think i just keep having blonde moments. Just when i think i know what im doing my mind goes blank. lol
I am confused now too, lol ...create a link to another hub from one hub ...be in Edit mode ...highlight the word ..click on the chain pic thingy in the toolbar ..menu pops open...scroll thru the menu to other Hub or paste other URL in there. Save. hope that gives you a idea
Link ..be in Edit mode ...have a Link capsule ...click Edit ...menu opens...paste URL ...save..
Ok i better try it tommaro when i put down the Southern Comfort. lol
Oh wait yea i did some of that already within hubpages. LOL OMG
To create good backlinks you can submit your webpages, in this case, hubs, to different websites or social bookmarking sites. The backlink itself should be titled with some keywords related to your hub. It is important to have good keywords relevant to let google know that the link is related to your hub. Why would google put a site on the front page if other sites hadn't linked to it? The more quality backlinks you have, the better. They do take time to build and for that reason, I haven't started yet.
For example, if you have a hub about, 'The Benefits of Motor Oil', your hubpage address would look something like: http://hubpages.com/hubs/benefits-of-motor-oil.
To create a useful backlink to this site, your hyperlink should look like this:
Motor Oil Benefits
NOT just an ugly, long URL link with the http://, etc. By using Motor Oil Benefits as the 'anchor text' for your backlink, google will view it as relevant to your hub and will rank your hub a bit higher.
Next you are probably wondering WHERE to post your backlinks. I haven't started doing this yet, I just know the importance of backlinks and what they can do. One place you could start is on social bookmarking sites. Hopefully someone else will chip in as to where you should place your backlinks.
Lastly, I would honestly recommend for you to write more content first before you start worrying about backlinks. The more targeted content you have, the better you'll do. Backlinks are great, but they take a lot of time and you should learn first what hubs get the most traffic and work on improving those backlinks in a few months.
For example, if I would've started creating backlinks for my hub about Narcissism and Twitter, I would've wasted LOTS of time as almost no one searches for information on that topic.
At the end of the day, you want to write about topics that people are searching for via google. You can see what topics get lots of traffic by using google.com/keywords. Try putting in a phrase, such as Motor Oil and you'll be able to see how many people search for that term a month.
lol that was so long! Maybe I'll someday write a hub on backlinks once I start utilizing them.
Right now, I'm focused on creating targeted, quality content.
The beauty of hubpages is that it already ranks pretty high in google, so newly published hubs typically get a ranking boost unlike a simple blog post on a personal blog. Therefore, worrying about backlinks is not always necessary to get good rankings. Lots of my hubs appear on google's first page for targeted keywords and I've never built a backlink! They are very helpful, but the targeted, quality content is much more important at this stage.
LOL yea i have had to much to drink to read that.lol But when i get up tommaro i promise i will.
I may have had a few drinks while writing that, too! hehe
Have you ever wrote something while you were drunk and then lauphed the next day at what you wrote, cuz half of it didnt make sence. LOL
lol text messages, definitely!
Typically I try not to be around a computer after consuming a large number of drinks ahahaha. I'm not sure what would happen...I've only had two so far this evening. For me, that's enough to make lots of grammatical errors, but not enough to make my writing not make sense.
@girly, you are so damn right,i just learnt some tricks now through your kind advice.Thanks
