I'm building a site at the moment which apparently I can't put a link here too :-)
My question is ...
If I write a hub here and link to the site, it counts as a backlink .. correct?
If someone else writes something somewhere and links to my site .. that's a back link too .. correct ?
But ... if someone writes an articles or hub somewhere that links to my hub that links to my site ... does that count as a backlink, or a sub backlink or not at all ?
jus' curious :-)
My understanding is that it counts as a link (ie DoFollow) only while the hubs score is above 75
Yes if someone writes something somewhere and links to you, then that is also a backlink.
As for the 'sub backlink', yes that would also pass on 'link-juice', providing the original source had some, and your hub was scoring 75 or above.
I have noticed that it takes time to move up in the search rankings, even when backlinking. To me this would suggest that Google puts at least some weight in the length of time that your site (or domain name?) has been active, as well as the quality of your backlinks.
This is correct except that in order for your links on HP to be dofollow, your Hubber score is what is important not the score of your individual hubs.
Yes, all of that is true, sort of.
If your site is A and your Hub is B, and 3rd party site is C:
B links to A = one back link for A
C links to B = one back link for B
C's link to B tells the Search Engines that B is important, while B's link to A says that A is important.
Now, B's link to A holds MORE weight because C is linking to B.
I hope that makes sense. Of course, this is assuming that C and B are sites that aren't hated by Google.
Wow! It might take me a a little longer to understand this, but by george, I will get it. I don't do much backlinks except shetoldme and my blogger account. I stop posting on Facebook as my friends there are all hubbers and my family are not interested in reading my hubs lol I also got tired of tweeting as I find it useless. Thanks for the comment, it should help me too.

This is how I understand backlinks. Linking to a webpage that links back to you is more valuable to SEO than not having it link back to you. The more removed this website is from your own the better. ...

Hey all,I posted this query in an older thread of mine with no joy. In retrospect, I probably should have posted the question independently:
