    Ok, so I've read these two hubs on backlinks but I still don't get what they are/do or how to use them.

    http://hubpages.com/hub/Increase-Your-P … Back-Links

    and

    http://hubpages.com/hub/Hubpages-backli … or-Dummies

    But I still don't get the concept behind them. Do I

    a) Post links to my hub on other sites?
    b) Post links in my hub to other sites?
    c) Something to do with URL trackers?
    d) Earn revenue by directing traffic to other sites?

    Thanks, for your help.

          correct, url trackers are used to "track" your referrals to hubpages whether it is your own hubs or other.

          A url tracker can be used n your backlink, but it is an addition to your backlink ( a link coming back to your hub from an external source)as its merely a small piece of identifying code added to the link

    A "backlink" is simply a link to your webpage from another webpage.

    You can allow them to grow naturally - or you can make them happen:

    Unfortunately - they are the lifeblood of your webpage. Without them you will wither and die. sad
