Does building links to your hubs actually help with traffic?
If so, how much should I expect and...If so, how much should I expect and how many links should I build?
Yes, but it all depends on the quality of the links. If you run a well-visited blog and you post a link to one of your hubs there, you can expect more traffic than when you post it on a dead forum. Make sure you post links in places where you are an active participant so you don't come across as a spammer. You can also share them on Facebook and Twitter.
Building links to your hub will definetly help with increasing traffic form the search engines. Keep in mind that you have to put your links in your anchor text (text where the link is in) in order to rank for your keyword.
Also, Google doesn't count links that are tagged with "nofollow' you can use a firefox plugin NoDoFollow to check whether links are dofollow or nofollow.
Depending on how comptetive the keyword you are trying to rnak for is, the more links you'll have to build to rise in the search engines (and grab the visitor's attention).
Generally, the longer the keyword phrase you are trying to rank for is, the easier it is to rank for that keyword. However, the longer the keyword phrase is, the less traffic you will generally get.
If you want some good estimates, search "google keytool" in Google and you'll find their free to tool to determine how many searches a keyword gets every day.
Hope that helped, have a good day!
Research your keywords, write quality content, and then build some authoritative links using those keywords. Those are the basics of SEO for any site, and you can (to an extent) treat your hub as your own site.
So, the short answer, is yes...

I am okay at writing and can go way more in depth then I have, however I am not sure it is necessary to have a good profitable hub. I only do things that are fun to me, but I was just wondering about a couple things.1.) I am suggesting links using the suggested links in hubpages, now I knows its...

I have added a table of contents to one of my hubs. The hub has a list of famous people from Oklahoma. To divide it up better and make it easier for people to read, I added links to each capsule. The question is, has anyone tried this and do you think that it would have a negative...

I've been here for almost two years now and have published 25 featured hubs. I calculated my average views per hub per day as 4. It is actually a bit better than that because the numbers involved the beginning period when I had only a couple of hubs and no views at all. But you Hubbers out there...

I just logged in and it shows every single one of my hubs highlighted in pink, to need review. The majority of these were well trafficked and featured hubs or editor's choice. Did something happen? I tried looking in the questions and forums and didn't see anything. I am not a former Squidoo person...

I noticed that hubs in niche sites no longer include the "More by this author" section below the hub. Is this just an oversight or was it a decision to drop it on niche sites?
