Backlinks - Backlinks - Backlinks

Backlinks are not a one way street.

Many article writers talk about the importance of creating backlinks. OK, I understand creating backlinks is very important to bring traffic to our main article but have you thought about the web address/URL we create while we are creating backlinks?

Whenever I write an article here at Hubpages and when it's published the article is given a web address/URL. I would then go to another revenue sharing website such as SheToldme. I would submit the Hub/article web address/URL into the Scoop's URL field, write my scoop and when I click publish and the scoop becomes published another web address/URL is created. The scoop I created about the article I wrote at Hubpages gets a new web address/URL. I would then take the created scoop web address/URL and submit it to the search engines. Subitting additional web address/URL to the search engines can help my scoop get indexed to the search engines.

Creating backlinks is a great way to generate traffic but do you ever take the link that was created while you backlinked to promote the Hubs original link web address/URL? All of a sudden I realized what an advantage creating backlinks can be. I took the web address/URL that was created and I placed them on a few of my blogs and websites instead of soley using the Hubs original web address/URL.

Here's another example. OK, I write a Hub and when published I'm given a web address/URL to the create Hub. I would then go to addblogurl, submit my Hub's web address/URL into the field, write a story then publish that story. When the story is published I receive a new original web address/URL. I would then use that URL at another revenue sharing website, write an article and another web address/URL is created. The cycle goes on and on. You don't have to stop the first time you create a backlink. Submitting backlinks to website after website can really add up. Create a system for yourself.

Guys, I put together this Hub for fun. I found it interesting and decided to share my take with creating backlinks.

I create a Hub, publish and receive a URL.

I take the Hub URL, go to shetoldme, write scoop, publish and receive a new URL.

I take the Scoop URL, go to addblogurl, write story, publish and receive a new URL.

I take the addblogurl URL, go to Snipsly, write post, publish and receive a new URL.

I take the Snipsly URL, go to Xomba, write article, publish and receive a new URL.

I take the Xomba URL, go to Infobarral, write article, publish and receive a new URL.

I take the Infobarrel URL, go to Redgage, write blog, publish and receive a new URL.

Can you see what I'm trying to show you here. You can go into a full circle if your really wanted to. The cycle continues over and over again and it stops only when you want it to stop. Because I create so many web addresses/URLs you have so many options to promote the URLs. You don't have to stick with one because over time you create so many web addresses/URLs.

I just wanted to put this Hub together to show all of you how creating one solid article and then creating backlinks to your article creates even more web addresses/URLs. So if you ever came across a website and submitted a URL into the URL field and the website tells you that the URL already exists, you can always use a different URL about the same topic to create another article. This has happen to me a couple times so I used a different URL, wrote the article, story or scoop and published.

Here's is something else to consider when creating backlinks to all of your articles, blogs, hubs and posts. I belong to a website called Xomba. They have a bookmarking section where you write a 50 word bookmark, submit the web address/URL to the original article, blog, hub or post, choose five keywords or phrases then publish to their website. Creating bookmarks help you get indexed into the search engines and your bookmarks will be viewed by their members. When I created a new website, article, blog, hub or post I spare the two minutes, go to the Xomba website, create a bookmark and I'm finished. Practicing this technique helps you increase visitors to your many works.

    I see there is a system that you have created, Question are you on squidoo, because I need to learn how to gain traffic to their website as well. I have a Unique Handbag Cake blog, that made it to the first page of google. In a matter of days but you wouldn't know that by looking at my adsense account.

    Creating backlinks to backlinks is not a bad thing, but You should also take backlinks form some of those sites and lead them to your original article.

    The real problem is that many of the sites you have listed have a low quality score, that means you will get very little benefit from the backlink.

    You have also used some no follow sites, where the backlink in essence simply does not exist.

    @JohnNorton just to reitterate, teh quality and the no follow attribute have a heavy impact on how a backlink affects your website. Do NOT use Yahoo Site Explorer to check your backlinks, it is very inaccurate and shows every link, including ones which carry 0 benefit.

    Hi Cherriebum,

    I wrote you last week but I'm browsing through some of my work and realized you posted this question here.

    When you sign up to another revenue sharing website, you are required to submit a URL and the URL you want to submit is your Hubs URL. Yes, you write about the topic of your Hub. You are writing a short post, scoop or story and so on.

    When creating a blog you can embed links to your Hubs into your blog. Same idea and over time it will attract traffic.

    Hi! I really find this hub interesting.

    How do you take your created url to another site? And to make a backlink do you have to make a blog with the same topic? I'm still confused. Thanks.:)

    Hi Johnorton,

    Happy to hear it. I learned how important it is to create backlinks. I just keep doing it until it all made sense to me. I knew it would eventually. Keep it up because backlinks do work.

    Hi Johnorton,

    I'm sorry I'm not understanding your question to the fullest. I have seen an increase to my traffic because I create many backlinks. I even use the revenue sharing websites to create backlinks to my own websites and the method works. If you keep at it and continue down your path eventually you will see how creating backlinks regularly do work to your favor.

    Hello trose,

    I create a new title/URL for each. I learned that tip from other Hubbers. Keep in mind that your title/URL must match the content of your article. Never deceive because that is against (I believe) all revenue sharing websites.

    Very good information. I am definitely bookmarking this one.

    Just one question. Do you use the same title/URL from Hubpages for the backlink URL's or do you create a new title/URL for each backlink?

    I read somewhere to create a new title/URL for each backlink so that it doesn't compete with your hub URL.

    Hi TnFlash,

    Yes, backlinks over time do bring traffic to your articles automatically. I place a link to the video USING a backlink. In less than 24 hours I've seen an increase of visitors to Xomba. From my experience backlinks work. It feels good to finally understand. Yeah.
