I use blogger and I have several different blogs there for the various categories of hubs I write. I almost always create a blog after a
hub to add backlinks I will also link from my hub to the blog. You can use your google adsense account on blogger also so it not only helps your SEO but also your ad revenue. You can check out my profile to get links to the various places I use to create backlinks.
You can help the HubPages community highlight top quality content by ranking this answer up or down.
