Backlinking to your Hubpages
Driving traffic to your Hubpages is absolutely essential for anybody interested in making some extra money online. It's not enough to just throw up a few Hubpages and sit back, waiting for the droves of traffic you've heard about in forums and discussion groups.
The phrase 'build it and they will come' has no base in online reality. It should read, 'build it, then promote it, so they know about it, so you can drive traffic to it.' Then, and only then, can you begin to see substantial earnings as an internet marketer.
Now, I'm assuming you have some interest in the internet marketing sector since your reading this article/ hub. There are many people in the Hubpages community who couldn't care less about driving targeted traffic to their hubs via keyword research and backlinking techniques. Those authors are here to let their voice be heard by providing unique content based on experience and insight.If you are one such Hubber, then what I have to say on this particular hub may not appeal to you in the slightest.
One thing I want to add before we move forward with my backlinking techniques is this; I am not an expert in the field of internet marketing (IM for short), nor am I an expert in the backlinking process that helps drive traffic to my sites and hubs via SEO. I am just a guy who started an endeavor a few months back to give a serious go at making a little extra money online, and the journey has been both rewarding and frustrating. What I lack in experience and knowledge is compensated for by my knack for quality research and the ability to surround myself with people who are smarter and more knowledgeable than I am in whatever field I am currently pursuing. Those are the people I want to introduce to you in this hub.
This hub is not about me bragging about my prowess as an IM'er because that would be a short article. Instead, I'll tell you who I've found to be the best at what I'm trying to do, then if you want to check out what those people have to offer you in your Hubpages pursuit for additional income, you'll be able to check them out.

Angela's & Paul's packets - About a month ago I was surfing the Warrior Forum, a site dedicated to internet marketing and those who are pursuing that avenue, when I came across two individuals offering packets of 30 and 50 high PR backlinks respectively for the low price of $5 /$8, again respectively. I figured, 'what the hey, if it doesn't work, I'm only out $13.' The results have been amazing. The page ranks of the sites where I list my links are so high and easily indexed and 'spidered' by Google, that my sites have seen immediate jumps in the Google search results for keywords I'd been working on for months prior. As soon as I have access to links to these great services, I'll place them here. I would only make a minimal affiliate fee off services that cost so little to implement, but I think you'll agree that they will do wonders for your Hubs. Hubpages already has a great built-in PR, so Google already loves them. Send a few high PR backlinks to your Hubs and you'll move up in the search rankings and your profile score will increase.
Article marketing - By submitting my uniquely authored articles to Ezine sites, I create backlinks that will stay indexed forever. But, it takes forever to manually submit to ezine sites. I like to write, but I'm not Stephen King. The best way I've found around this obstacle is a service that blasts out 100's of unique content articles to directories on the web. The service is reasonably priced at $69/month, considering what you get in return. With a service like UAW blasting out articles that point targeted, anchored backlinks back to your site... Well, your Hubpages will shoot through the roof!
So, with a little work and a lot of know how, linking back to your Hubs can be both easy and rewarding; You'll build your readership, and you'll most likely begin to see a little extra income thrown your way. We can all use a little extra scratch, am I right?
After further review...
This hub was published many months ago, maybe even years, depending on when you're reading this. Hubpages has succumbed to Google's authority, and now frowns upon the business of building backlinks in order to enhance SEO rankings.
In other words, Hubpages has become Google's bitch...! Not unlike other formerly reputable sites, like eZine, Snipsly, etc.
Most of the information contained within this hub is now moot, so take everything you read about building backlinks, here or anywhere, with a grain of salt...
