After reading a hub by Relache, I looked at the incoming links on some of my hubs. Most of them only have one incoming link, and the odd one has two or three but no more than that. I've backlinkined these hubs to the usual sites - xomba, shetold etc so where do the incoming links actually come from? And how can I get more?
Or is it just a matter of time?
Organic do-follow links are exactly what you need to be getting, and social bookmarking is a way to do that, however the only real guaranteed way to get incoming organic do follow backlinks is to write good quality content which people will want to link to.Whether it is informative or humerous, give people a reason to link to it from their own website and you should start getting links
The trouble with social bookmarking is that I never want to part of the community, even on Facebook I am linked to loads of people but I never use Facebook except to put links up, or occasionally reply to a comment. Twitter is a waste of space for me. Got my links up there and no friends LOL
Stumbleupon seems to be socialbookmarking. I've joined but not added content because it's not my type of scene - same with Digg and to a certain extent with redgage.
Maybe I should go back to my old gardening forums and link my name/signature to my hubs and participate again?
A wise move Izzy I find this a much better way to get links than social bookmarking and you'll probably get some good traffic too. Just check that your signature links on the forums you use are DoFollow.
Thats pretty much my view on all of that malarky as well to be honest :p
How did you check your incoming links? Hub stats just give a very rough idea of those.
Go to Yahoo.com and write link:your-hub-URL and it will show you backlinks. There are some backlink checkers if you Google this term.
Here is my hub that will give you some ideas for getting backlinks easily: http://hubpages.com/hub/Get-Easy-Free-Backlinks
It's hard to get traffic if you don't want to be part of community.
I spend almost no time building backlinks compared to other users on this site, and a good number of my Hubs have lots of backlinks.
If you write on subjects that draw lots of traffic and are useful, many of your readers will take care of the backlinking for you.
Many times, hubs with good content do not get organic back links because they remain unnoticed due to various reasons. Creating back links is essential tool for SEO and getting traffic.
There are several ways of getting more back links.
Please refer to hub:

Thanks for all your replies
Some people think backlinking is useful and others not so much it seems.
I think it's about finding the right places to backlink and I'm not convinced I've found them yet - or they have found me!
Some of my hubs are doing a lot better now that the spring is almost here, so I suspect that is seasonal. Well growings things from seed is definitely seasonal!
Thanks again. I'm learning - bit by bit, might get there one day
As oli said in his post that traffic from hubpages is not worthy. So let's discard hubpages traffic for now. But you can spend some time on other social network or forums which are relevant to your niche to create backlinks (and it's worth it if those site have high PR). Backlinks if from Nofollow site will not help but they can be used to drive traffic which you want(like reddit/digg etc).
Yahoo and Google shows different number of backlinks for a same URL, how it could be?
It shows sites with www and without it.
By the way,Yahoo shows nofollow and dofollow as well.
Both search engines have their own index pages. Google may index Some URLs and Yahoo may some others. This is the reason of showing different numbers of backlinks.
Thanks for the explanation Jyoti and skyfire, for one of my blog I got reciprocal links from few high PR websites but Google not listing them. I tried both with and without www.
Google doesn't show all the pages linking to your site or hub. However you can see many more backlinks Google has discovered by signing into your Google Webmaster Tools.
It must be some kind of policy but certainly not because they can't index as many pages as Yahoo does.
I suggest you check backlinks on Yahoo.
I'd recommend reading this hub by Oli which explains the answer to your question: http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Truth-About-Backlinks
