Here's an idea (not sure if it's been mentioned before) but how about a competition run by some of the top hubbers - and the reward is a link from one of their own hubs? This way people will be inspired to do a great hub, as well as get a decent backlink...
How about we all create a hub with all the tricks in so we all learn SEO, BACKLINKING, Everything gets voted on ect....
This assumes that a 'top hubber' had a hub that is relevant to yours, otherwise there would be no point. The main tag page and related hubs already provide links from within HubPages, so careful tagging and putting a little thought into topics and keywords can already achieve this.
This is a very good idea. I thinks i would like to get involved with this one!!
I'm throwing it out there in the hopes top hubbers may see it - or even one. I personally am not a top hubber (give me a few years!)... so it was more an idea I hope someone would like...
I personally don't know too much about linking etc. However could this work?
1. 20 people start this collaborative project.
2. Each hubber writes one random summary/intro paragraph to a keyword/niche of their choice.
3. You then take this and create a new hub.
4. After inserting the text we then add 19 other links and short paragraphs to the other peoples hubs of their choice i.e an existing hub.
Thus each hub then recieves 20backlinks on 20 keywords.
The links would most likely only need to be 1/2 brand new sentences (however it would be your choice as you would have to write all 19 of the descriptions relating to your link) i.e "Top trance songs" gets posted by someone to my hub and then someone else places a link "top techno songs" etc etc.
Could work but as I said I am not sure?
It might work but the point of it is more to get traffic from search engines and good quality hubs.... a hub made of links is more MLM than quality.
yeah but you get 20 backlinks to the hub that you want traffic to, which will increase your search engine position which means you will get more traffic.
Like your not directing traffic to the 'link hub' rather that 'link hub' acts as a group of back links for your main hub.
Ah ok sorry I misunderstood. One hub is a directory of the other 20.... I like it.
There was a program on HubPages called the Capstone Hub program
To be honest, I'm not sure if they're still offering it - however, it's a good model to follow.
I've just in the process of creating 4 capstone-style Hubs, gathering together all the Hubs on various genres of dance. A big chunk of those Hubs are mine anyway, so I will get the benefit of the links.
However, I've also put my referral tracker in the links to the other Hubs so I may occasionally get a small benefit from them too.
yeah so if you would be interested I'd be happy to work with people to do it. So I guess all we need is 18 or so more people but I guess we could start now.
I might quickly write a better explanation in another thread or even a hub.
Marisa, I've been in the process of writing a "series type of thing" and linking the different Hubs to things like "Part I" and "Part V" etc. Is that something that would make sense to put a referral tracker on? (They're all mine.)
There are two possible benefits of someone clicking on a tracker.
You're probably familiar with what happens when someone signs up to join HubPages.
The other benefit is that if someone clicks on the link and goes to someone else's Hub, you get a cut of the pageviews for the next two hours.
On the dance link Hub, I haven't bothered going through and adding my tracker to my own Hubs, because it's a bit of work, and I don't think I'll get many would-be writers visiting the Hub. If I was writing about making money online, I definitely would.
Just created a hub on getting backlinks from hubbers which corraltes to my idea as noted above.

Larasmama - Great idea, thanks for the thread. I'm always up for anything that gets me involved with other hubbers, especially those who are particularly good at all this. It's a great way to learn.

IzzyM and I have been chatting about backlinking, and disagreeing on what's the best way to go about it. She's been spending hours backlinking her Hubs on social bookmarking and backlinking sites, because she feels...
