How Linking hubs increases traffic from Google and all other search engines

Updated on January 1, 2015

Answer - "It appears to be working for me so far in the short 4 months I been on hubpages, I think that what's important to take note of, is your hubs overall quality, besides the SEO part, and linking of hubs."

This hub is an answer to a Q&A question on hubpages

Linking:

Linking hubs definitely has a great effect on alerting the search engines of your hubs relevance, and the sources of link references its driving other traffic too.

Make sure though that your links are leading to high quality hubs, or it may work against you.

Hub Quality:

Quality is king here on the web & especially on hubpages, this means you will need to think about how your hub is going to play such a role.

Make sure the content you can provide viewers is going to render them great interest, since the masses of viewers on the web, and not just on hubpages are also looking for better quality information, and visual presentation.


Networking:

Try social networking and use of your hubpages profile onto them, I like to use my hubpages profile as a means for attracting my viewers from outside of hubpages, it might just do the trick for you.

How to do it: Simply place your hubpages profile url into your social networking profile space, if allowed to do so, like on twitter, facebook, or linkedin etc...


Note: Most social networks, allow for a single link to be placed onto them from an external source, as to identify your personal web presence elsewhere, and may have a module section to do so, so seek the guidance from their tutorial area if necessary

Bonus: try a cool web location known as ItsMyUrls, it allows your links to be shared across multiple networks all at once, and also allows you to brand your profile there with a profile bar code for sharing & scanning across mobile devices.



Useful Hubpages Guides

Things to know:


There are many factors involved in the ranking of your hubs by the search engines, and you making the necessary updates, changes, and enhancements that will play such an effective role to make them qualify as such high quality hubs.



Don't be to hasty by racing into it all, do some much needed research on it all, if your looking to gain massive traffic levels on hubpages, and be patient as well, this takes time indeed for the most part.


There's some pretty awesome techniques in this video I found

5 Useful Tips:

1. Before writing a hub think overall structure, layout, images, video, marketing.

2. Once the hub is thought up, select a title, don't think to hard on it, just do it.

3. Effective titles will tie into your linking techniques, keywords in titling helps.

4. Create back links, they will help expose your hubs, or fellow hubbers & also alert the search engines of much more relevant info on your hubpage.

5. Positioning capsules is key, so make sure to space things out a bit, in relevance to imagery and text positioning, since a hubs overall appearance equates to much higher quality, besides the words being delivered to the screen.

      Very much true, i used be an occasional hubber jumping once in a blue moon - of late, after, seeing some good hubs i realized the potential behind hubbing and changed my mind and in that course your hubs are very worthy with some good advice for newbies and for those who want to take it seriously, thank you.

      I think if we don't help folks along the way, it won't truly be worth it, because I'm not here for the money alone, I'm here to communicate, to share, and to also learn from others as well, as help folks if and when I can you know.

      Thanks bro for being real with it all, and for showing some hub love here as well as for me.

      may i know what sites are backlinks? is it reddit, redgage, digg?

    • CloudExplorer profile image

      Mike Pugh 2 years ago from New York City

      @peachpurple much of the back-linking happens automatically I have no idea what sites exactly, but you can check your Google Analytics or stats in terms of the sources for any of your sites or blogs you chose to track. That's if you use it. As soon as you post content to any networks, a profile link etc... back links are created.

      So we all have been doing it without realizing wherever you post content up at, that's why its imperative to share sparingly so not to be sensed as a spammer online and across the social web.
