Are there ETHICAL ways to build good backlinks to hubs? How important is backlink building?
I'm getting a bit frustrated. I hear so many different things about backlinks. They're terribly important. They aren't that important. You must build them. You should just let them grow organically. To be competitive at all, you must "cheat" by doing things like buying backlinks. Such cheating is unethical and will likely only get you penalized by Google. Does anyone actually know what they're talking about when it comes to backlinks? Is there is solid, ethical way to build sufficient backlinks to one's hubs?
I use PR Backlink Generator.
You type in your keywords, and it searches the web.
When finished, it allows you to select the PR (Pagerank) of which sites you want to post your comment and backlinks on. Once you choose which PR's you want to post to, it loads ten sites at a time so you can speed through it.
In just 5 days after I launched my website, I have over 400 PR1 - PR10 backlinks.
First of all, backlinks can never hurt - when they aren't generated in chunks of hundreds within minutes. As you have correctly noticed automatic systems could work against you.
On the other hand noone could ever prove whether you paid to get backlinks, but the amount you pay for these is rather important because it can lead to being cheated. The actual value of a link depends on a number of factors, and you might want to work with people who supply an article or two that actually recommends your blog or website rather than "just" getting a backlink.
Backlinks have both an organic and an automatic value. The automatic value is that Google (and others) will visit your sites more often when they encounter links to your blog. But the organic value lies in real human beings noticing your sites, and thus gaining greater online credibility among real users.
Have fun while BUILDING more traffic to your sites.

IzzyM and I have been chatting about backlinking, and disagreeing on what's the best way to go about it. She's been spending hours backlinking her Hubs on social bookmarking and backlinking sites, because she feels that's been recommended on the forums by Hub gurus. I'm not at all sure that's...

I just wondered if anyone backlinked their backlinks, like putting Shetoldme links on Reddit for example. I'm seriously running outta ideas of how to get traffic.

Am beginning to notice that there is little or insignificant difference in the traffic i get from search engines to the hubs i backlink and those i did not backlink.Does it mean we can do equally well in hubpages with or without backlinks?Anybody ever noticed that?Happy hubbing to all you...

I recently started writing on Daily Two Cents to mitigate the whack-ness that is now Bubblews. Is Daily Two Cents a viable way to create quality backlinks back to my blog and HubPages articles? For instance if I wrote a small piece about global warming and link it back to my meatier hub...
