I learned about creating backlinks from Hubbers and I want to say thank you for teaching me the backlink method.
I took the time to search for my backlink URL and was pleasantly surprised to see my backlink URL indexed to search engines.
Do any of you manually submit your backlink links to search engines?
Do you feel it helps?
Do you feel it's not necessary?
I'm off to work now and look forward to any responses I receive. I am very curious if any feels the need to manually submit backlink URL to search engines.
Thanks in advance,
Please also explain how you manually submit your back links to search engines. That would definitely help newbies like me.
I have a Hub about free submission to search engines. I don't want to post it in a Forum because it might be considered spam.
Go to the Hub you want to submit, right click on your Hubs link within your account, open it in a new tab.
While at my Hub with a list of search engines, right click on the link, open in new tab, go copy your link and then paste it into the field the search engine wants you to submit your URL.
The Hub gives directions and I hope I helped you. Good luck at Hubpages.
I was not replying to your question, I am new and don't want to be left behind so I pick up every opportunity to learn and improve myself. So I just asked for additional Information.
I'm not an expert at SEO, but I'm under the impression that Hubpages are crawled fairly often by Google (and I assume the other search engines). I haven't pinged or otherwise done anything for my Hubpages, but they seem to index within a few days or so.
Ranking is another matter, although I've gotten some decent ranks with less competitive keywords. I haven't done much backlinking with Hubpages. But although I used to try to ping everything (for other sites) I eventually figured that nearly everything would eventually get indexed. The only things I ping now are obscure links that Google might miss.
Again - I'm not an expert, but this seems to work for me!
I have submited my profile page to Baidu.com the Chinese search engine, but it takes at least a month for approval and I'm not sure if HubPages will go through yet. Its a little tricky because it all in Chinese
Google ads might get it band from their search TOS, because they are in dispute still it was worth the effort to submit it
Google vs Baidu
Do the Chinese search engines accept English? I would assume that the Chinese SE would only accept the Chinese language. Let me know. Thanks.
I don't know if Baidu will accept - I am opening a site here in China and there are government rules about sites and what can be put on them etc etc. This ranges from the obvious negative propoganda, porn, which is banned, medicine etc that need licences, and the inclusion in the company of a free babysitter who vets everything.
Google came unstuck because they refused to filter material, from propoganda to porn, the argument was along the lines of China refusing porn and Google demanding 'free speech' with no censorship.
The real reasons would appear more to relate to your issue about searching and putting up titles in Chinese characters. Google cannot put up Chinese websites but Baidu can put up foreign language sites.
We are actively looking to exploit this problem by opening a western site and a Chinese site with translation in between for contacts who want to do business each end
I have to start using digg. I've heard of it but never visited it. If you have referral link please send it to me in a private message. I would be more than happy to join through your referral link.
Go to my profile and click on contact me. Thanks
Its more important these days to post to social bookmark websites, and social sites such as facebook, twitter etc, to spread the word about your hubs.
Misha can you please explain why ? I don't understand this at all.
Because it helps neither you being indexed nor your ranking in SERPs - therefore it's useless. Spending time on useless tasks is wasting it.
If it's a new site it will help you get indexed faster, however, since a new site generally won't rank in any SERPs for at least a few weeks for any decent terms, a sitemap is a much better bet.
We already established that we live in different worlds Oli.
Never helped me to get indexed faster than just dropping a couple of high authority links
Haha, yeah that would pretty much do the job as well!
I do a lot of things. My hubs on keyword research and backlinking pretty much cover the part that beginner can use.
Welcome to Hubpages. You'll learn a whole lot in the forums. Everyone has a different method/proven system to growing their Internet Writing Business.
I learned so many different free ways to increase traffic from Hubbers and feel they all have a benefit to using them.
Enjoy Hubpages and I look forward to watching you grow.
I think what you seem to be missing is that submitting a link does not give any technical benefit to traffic or search engine rankings, it is simply a way of notifying a search engine that your site exists. This can also be done by creating a sitemap and adding it to your robots.txt file (Or the webmaster tools for each search engine) or with a high profile backlink which will undoubtedly be crawled within hours, if not minutes.
Once Google knows about your site any new/refreshed content will usually be picked up by the spider within hours. Especially if you use sites like Wordpress, Blogger, and probably Hubpages, where a 'flag' so to speak is raised in the code when you update. This notifies the search engines that the content has been updated and needs to be crawled again.
I read your hub and watched the video you made about this, and I can definitely see your reasoning behind your theory, but I would suggest that you research it further to find out just how much this is already automated!
Thanks mailexpress, all that I have learn about Hp and traffic is from the forums. Yes I agree that these discussion are good and helpful most of the time.
I'm with Misha, I never submit to search engines, infact the only time that occurs is that in my wordpress setup files I usually add a few extra pinging services, but even then it's simply because it only takes a second to do, and it's usually a new domain so needs every ounce of exposure.
On all my own websites I have a sitemap which keeps Google up to date on what's happening on my site. Hubpages and blogger are both crawled pretty fast by Google.
Blogger pings automatically so there is zero point in submitting your blogs to SE's
To the comment about social bookmarking, there was a thread recently which asked hubbers to list their marketting techniques in order of priority, it might be useful for you to know that a lot of the people who are makingmoney, myself included, don't really socail bookmark that much.
I find by putting mine on Facebook I'm more of a pain in the you know what than anything...I avoid it now
Yeah facebook is warm sector marketing, basically going after your friends.
It tends to be low sales, high annoyance!
The exception would be if you built a business profile on Facebook, then people could be more interested in your announcements!
when I make changes or create backlinks I always run through many pingers. I don't depend on Google to stop by and see them. I often create RSS feed from my URS and aggregate them.
It isn't always about Link Juice. It is sometimes visability.
Case in point. I had allot of ads running on a high pr forum. That forum was closed by the owner for various reasons. But he left portions of that forum open. For example, when I searched for a certain term they would come up in the SERPs.
So I ran a test. I took those URLs and made RSS feeds from them. I used a tool to rapid index those URLs. Those posted ads skyrocketed to the top of the SERPs.
I wonder what would happen if I started bookmarking those posts? I could bookmark them day and night and I tell you they would take over the SERPs.
Just my two cents....
Im not sure i see what can be gained by adding your URL to a search engine, it certainly wont increase your ranking.

Wordpress submits each post to ping services like pingomatic. Should we be submitting our Hubs to these services or submit a ping each time we post a new Hub?

I take out all the hyphens when I make my URl for my articles. To me it just looks nicer. For example (not a real hub) hubpages.com/notarealhub is what I would use as opposed to the recommended...
