what is a back link exactly how do i make one and will it benifit me?
i have been trying to find out how to get more traffic and backlinking keeps coming up but i have no idea what this is can anybody help?
I also need help in this regard just to know what it is and not interested in traffic any way you link back or front to my Hub which is:-
A backlink is simply a link to your site.
It will benefit because a search engine will see the link as a 'vote' for your site from the site that has the link on it.
In its simplest from, the more 'votes' for your site that a search engine can find all around the internet, the higher the search engine will rank your site.
In reality things are much more complicated, as the popularity of the site that is 'voting', the wording of the link anchor text, meta data, the target page on your site and other factors all impact on exactly how each individual 'vote' is valued by the search engine.
I hope this helps,
I think a link to your article helps you in several ways. It links your article to the other articles helping drive the traffic to your article as well as the article you have linked to. A reader of your article can go to the article you have linked to. In other words you are directly helping some one else or yourself if you have linked to your own article somewhere else. Internet universe just like the larger universe follows the law of give and take. If you give something you get the rewards in return - directly or indirectly. I had a very low hubkarma. I was advised to link. I began linking all my hubs to the other hubs. Within a week my hubkarma has considerably improved. As for linking hubs, just click the link button, you will get choices of several hubs, click the hub that is most relevant to your hub and you are done. It's that simple. I hope that helps.
Good question and good answers. I have also learned something.
backlinks are when you go to other websites, blogs, social media and email and create a LINK BACK to your hub. This is letting people know you have written something so hopefully they will go and read it. This increases traffic to your site. It benefits you in increased readership and income.

Is there any value in linking to your own hubs within OTHER hubs and your profile page, in terms of search engine page ranking? Any advantage at all? I've seen a lot of people do this.If this is a silly question, please forgive me; I'm still relatively new here. Thanks.

I hate asking for SEO advice because I feel that I learn more when I find the answer for myself. I remember reading a blurb about this somewhere but every time I google related keywords I come up with websites trying to sell me high-PR links. The frustration has set in! My main reason for asking...

Then there is...

Which is the most important for search engine searches: the Hub summary or the first paragraph of the Hub? I thought the summary was most important, but I notice that sometimes searches show the first sentences in the hub. Are both equally important?
