I am a newbie in hubpages. Granting that you've done keyword research perfectly, what are some effective practices to rank your hub? Do I need to build backlinks inside hubpages or I need more backlinks from the outside?
High quality, engaging, content (videos/pictures) tends to attract the best type of backlinks: unsolicited backlinks. Some will swear by building a ton of backlinks, but, honestly, I've seen alot of success writing online, over the years, just by creating high quality and engaging content that people WANT to share.
You can help the HubPages community highlight top quality content by ranking this answer up or down.
