    Could someone help me understand about back links?

    Where do you add these and how do they work? Is this different from the hublinks?

    Hub links are links between hubs and within the hubpages domain. They can be set up using the suggest links button. You will be given suggestions of other hubs you can chose to link to your hub within the text.

    Back links come from outside hubpages. Many people use other article sites such as ezine to create back links. Bookmarking sites such as xomba, redgage and others can be used to create backlinks which will point back to our hub from outside hub pages.

    I am sure someone will come along and give you a super detailed answer but that is the short answer.

    My suggestion is that you type the word ´´backlinks´´ into the hubpages search box and read some of the many hubs on this topic. They usually have explanations and lists of sites you might use for backlinks. In short, backlinks help you to draw traffic to your hubs. Most hubbers use StumbleUpon,,, RedGage,, facebook and Twitter and a variety of other sites to post links to their hubs. A simple example is facebook: if you post a link to your hub it is actually a link bringing people ´´back´´ to your hub.

    Right on Autumn. And one nice thing about HubPages is it has a pretty strong PR and you can build backlinks to your hubs fairly quickly without getting sandboxed. However any backlink spamming techniques could result in getting banned though.

    I agree with the reviews that have been presented already. You need to have backlinks to get better rankings in the search engines. If you're not on page one of the search engines for high traffic terms (keyword phrases) you aren't going to see any traffic.
