Does backlinks from your own hubs or someone else's hub count as a proper backlink for the search engines? Cheers.
In my opinion backlinks from any internal HP hub, yours or others, would pass Google juice as long as it's not a no-follow link. Like author score is not below 75 and hub score below 40.
I don't see either being as good as an external link. They all do help some though.
Backlinks from your own hubs would help to keep a user on your hubs longer. By linking several closely related hubs together you make them all stronger and more relevant for their topic in the search engines eyes.
Links from other hubber's related hubs does the same thing and helps to keep a user on HP longer which is good for us all. There doesn't seem to be many hubbers who wish to exchange links and this is a mistake imo.
Maybe someone like thisisoli or sunforged will give their opinions too.
Thanks, that was helpful Something else i wanted to ask you is when you got your keywords and backlinks right, how long does it take for the search engines to crawl your page and rank you?
Crawl rates depend on the quality of backlinks and the website in question. The websites that do not get updated regularly do not get crawled by search engines bots quickly and vice versa.
As far as ranking is concerned, it mainly depends on the quality and number of your backlinks and the originality and quality of your content and the site you are writing for plus some other factors. It also depends upon the competition on the keywords you are trying to rank for.
Building internal links can help you, crawl rates vary, it may take minutes or days. You can increase the speed in which your pages are crawled by finding more do follow backlinks.
Thanks, i read about do follow and no follow links yesterday, but i dont quite get it yet. Can you give me a quick explanation again?
Check my profile for a backlinking guide.
No follow links, such as those on Digg or Xomba, are only really useful for the traffic flows through them. Search engines ignore them.
Do follow links gain the traffic, plus page rank flows (For SEO) and also help your website get crawled faster.
No follow links do give you traffic, but their only real SEO benefit is if someone who visits the site decides to link to you form tehir own website with a do-follow link (Which does happen)
I think back-links from Hubpages are very useful, but we should not use Hubpages for back-links only. As this will spoil the quality of content
Backlinks from anywhere can lead to additional organic links. Traffic from no-follow links is still traffic and can lead to sales or ad revenue. Links between hubs allow visitors to your page to check out similar hubs. If you find a hub by another hubber worth linking to, ask them if they would link some of their hubs to yours. It really can increase cross-traffic.
I think it helps... not that I am any expert! What I would say is make sure the backlink is at the end of the hub! You dont want a click away before they have finished reading! x

I have been on hubpages for two months. I have read multiple articles on SEO and backlinking. Ninety percent of my hubs do not have backlinking. But I choose for a while to say no backlinking. It...

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

Do-follow and No-follow backlinks affect our page ranking in google. Is there any relation to our hubscore here on Hubpages? I've been told that there is probably no affect on our hubscore in relation to our backlinks....
