Is it normal practice to have a new hub not show up in the search results, top 64 pages, with 100s of backlinks and then to have it skip straight up to one of the top pages?
A new hub with 100s of backlinks that no-one has read? Google isn't stupid you know.
If you want 100s of backlinks you need to add them slowly over a long period of time to make them look natural and organic.
No wonder we got slapped if this is common practice.
Hubpages lost some of its authority because google decided the site was of low quality. Also google doesn't know how many views it has had, which was over 2000 in just over 5 days.
And the truth of the matter is google was, is and still will be all about links for a long time yet.
And getting a lot of links is fine as-long as there not against google rules and you keep up the amount you do each day.
Off topic a bit here maybe but I know two people who are very successful at Internet marketing. One of them built no backlinks and it took him 10 years to make over 10k each month. The other built 20 + backlinks everyday and he took only 9 months to reach 5k.
So if you want to earn good money quikly then you will need backlinks.
It can take anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks for Google to index a new hub.
Google has recently changed its algorithm so things are all over the place in the SERPs. And it's not unusual for pages to go fast up or down the ranks for random reasons.
Just remember that Hubpages has policies on automatic backlinking strategies and you can get banned for using them. Google also can be quite unimpressed if a page grows a hundred backlinks over night.
Ok thanks for the reply but the hub is allready indexd just not in the serps that only go up to page 60 something. And I know the policies of hubpages and google and all the links have come from 7 day linkbuilding without much sleep. Thanks anyway.
Can someone with actual experience with link building such as misha, mark knowles, sunforged reply? Thanks.
I just pulled down 160 hubs in the last week or so to focus on my own domains. I may slowly move that content to some of my own existing domains.
If I am going to have to do backlinking, why would I put in that kind of work to build up someone else's site? If you are going to put the time in to backlink, why not build out your own site?
As for your question. I'm not any of those hubbers you singled out but I certainly have the same experience.
Yes, this can happen. It can sometimes be attributed to QDF. What I do suggest is that you pay attention to link velocity. Getting 1000 backlinks in a month won't generally be an issue provided you get roughly the same every month.
What usually raises a red flag is a site that generates backlinks in spurts.
Hey ProducInfo Source
Thanks for the reply it is just what I was looking for. Ye I know I will have to be carefull with link velocity but I think I can keep it up.
I have also started my own sites which I will be sending backlinks from my hubpages to and want to get the pagerank and authority up quikly for when they will be complete.
And thanks again.
If you are a little patient, people will reply. No need to imply that some replies are more equal than others.
I was patient for 26 hours and then got the reply I was looking for.
I thought it was only Hubpages staff who could close a thread?
Nope, not equal. Some replies are better than others, and some are worse. Just because some people know what they are talking about, and some don't.
Frankly I have no idea what exactly policies you are talking about. And getting some sleep will certainly clear up your mind quite a bit.
