Have you noticed your hub before and after backlinks?

    I've done some backlink experiments for my hubs. Results below

    hub1 (keyword targeted) - 15 backlinks - 2 weeks - SERP 3rd page to 4th position 

    hub2 (keyword targeted) - 9 backlinks - 1 weeks - SERP 2nd page to 7th position. Please do share your experience.

      My hub that receives the most traffic has considerable backlinks to it.  My next 3 most popular hubs have no backlinks to them.

      My experience has been that backlinking does nothing but good for your hubs.

      However, many hubs don't even need it.

    I guess backlinking does help -- even the spun and unreadable crap.

    Wow. Just wow.

      I did a lot of backlinking on my other account until we were advised not to.
      Now I'm hearing we should be doing it, and then came your mention of the amount of backlinks that Hub on the iPhone5 has (downloaded that plug-in, btw - great, thanks!) and now I'm really confused ...

        It seems to be general concensus (for most, anyway) that backlinking is about the only thing that can help in the short-term here. And if this guy's pure crap can rank highly based on backlinks, our stuff should be zooming off the page! smile

        Just make sure you backlink responsibly -- take it slowly. Not sure about the best sites to backlink from, but look to Misha, Darkside, Sunforged, Ryan and Thisisoli for more insight.

          No offence, but I would leave Ryan out of the list, and include there Mark Knowles, Peter Hoggan, and Eric Graudins instead. I likely missed somebody, those just the first who came to mind.

          And thanks for the plug Lisa smile

            Misha, you were the first one I was going to come to anyway. I know you have a very down-to-earth approach, and that you know a hell of a lot about this kind of thing.

                I think I could put myself in the same category. smile

                  ha ha ha.  I see a likeness between us alright, especially in the maths department....... people like me who only play on hub pages, and write the odd hub, and only poetry at that will probably be a thing of the past the way things are moving on here...........

                    From what I can glean from a couple of other threads in which Paul Deeds commented, poetry will not be a thing of the past. It's still welcome.

              Cause - umm - well - he does not know the topic as good as SF or Peter. Far from it. smile

                  IDK, he may be an authority in something, but based on what I read by him on the topic, he does not know much about backlinks. Sticking a bookmark or two on shetoldme for a few hundred hubs is not a solid backlinking campaign by any measure. smile

    A lot of Google queries are effected by QDF (Query Deserves Freshness) which basically promotes fresh content. It’s why you see hubs ranking well initially before losing ground to more established pages. This will happen long before links have been taken into account.

    So if the pages you are talking about are only 1 or 2 weeks old it might be QDF giving you an initial boost, if they are older, then the level of linking you describe indicates that you are targeting extremely non-competitive terms.

    Edit: Just noticed you have 0 hubs, so i am a  bit confused.

      I told you they were crap. Badly, badly spun, unreadable garbage. I wonder if he took them down or the team did, though. In any case, I'm glad they're gone.
