Simple Ways to Build Backlinks to your Hubpages Articles

Updated on August 22, 2011

Backlinks are anchor links from other websites which improve the search engine ranking of the destination page. In the simplest terms, a backlink will help improve your long-term traffic because it will rank higher in search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing.

If you're trying to make money on Hubpages, one thing you must be doing is building backlinks to your Hubpages articles. The more links you have pointing to your articles - the greater chances you'll earn more money because, obviously, more people are visiting your pages and clicking through your Adsense ads, Amazon, Ebay and other ways you're making money with your hubs.

This hub will share a few of the simplest ways to build backlinks that doesn't require a whole lot of work and that anyone can get started with ...

Write A LOT of Hubs

The first and easiest way to get more traffic and build backlinks to your Hubpages articles is to simply create as many articles you can each and every day.

Not every one of your Hubpages articles is going to be a hit but you get a few hubs that are wildly successful; these types of hubs will be so popular that people will naturally link to them on their own websites which gives you a very valuable link back to your articles.

Comment on Blogs

Blog commenting can be a great way to build links to your Hubpages articles. Find blogs that relate to the articles you're creating and leave a very helpful comment on a blog; link back to your article within the URL section of blog comments - done and done!

For a bonus effect, comment on blogs with KeywordLuv or CommentLuv which will give you added benefits of using a keyword for your link (which adds the value of the link) or pulls from your RSS feed (which can be found on your profile page).

Write for Blogs

Find blogs that relate to the articles you write on Hubpages and write guest blog posts for them. Each new guest blog post you create will not only send you traffic to your articles but you can generally leave a link in your author bio which points back to your specific articles.

For a bonus effect, use the main keyword you've used on your Hubpages articles to help improve your search engine rankings for that specific term (this dramatically increases your search visibility and traffic in the long run).

Social Bookmarking Websites

Social bookmarking websites are places where you can leave a link back to your original article while sharing your content to a broad community that may otherwise never find your articles on Hubpages.

Sign up and begin sharing links on websites like Digg, Reddit, StumbleUpon and the countless others that fill the web. Build up a following (like you're doing on Hubpages) to further increase the voting which will help build up traffic to your Hubpages articles!

Build a Network

Take extra special time to build up relationships and a network when you're active online. Your online friends will help promote your Hubpages articles because of the connections you make with them; you're all in for a mutually exclusive benefit for each other.

You could begin asking your network to include links to your Hubpages articles which they may agree upon without anything in return. In time, your links will build and traffic will rise. Just make sure you take care of your relationships and never abuse your network!

Link Building isn't Hard .. Just Tedious

All-in-all, building links to your Hubpages articles isn't all that hard, it's just that they can be boring at times because it's generally bouncing around websites, leaving links and focusing on link building strategies that can be tedious at times.

However, if you take the time to build links, you'll see a rise in traffic and your earnings on Hubpages in due time. Just keep at it as you go and you'll see some serious results!
