Could some of you post a link to other sites to show me examples of backlinking for traffic?
My best suggestion is to visit the HubPages Learning Center, AND J.S. Mattew wrote a FANTASTIC hub about how to get noticed on HubPages.
Back linking simply refers to linking, nothing more!
You might have been confused by the term backlink. If you create a link back to your hub, its a backlink. POst the URL of your hub in Facebook, its a backlink.
As you asked this question, a link saying "sholland10" is visible after asked by, this is a back link.
Some popular websites where you can create great backlinks:
If you answer more questions, or become active in forums and comment in other hubs, that is also a back link.
I am using different social bookmarking sites for backlinking and for promoting my hubs as well. I have a blog at blogger where I write related topics to my hubs and then add the link to my hubs. I also have a hubpages widget at the side of my blog. I need to work hard though since I don't get to update my blog as often as I should. I need to try and arrange my schedule.
Try to install an AddThis add-on on your browser. This way, you get to promote your hubs easily through those shortcut buttons. My current favorite among those sites is reddit. I already have a reddit account for a few months, but it was only until recently that I started to take it seriously. I have read a hub from Jedijessicuh about it. I have learned that I was not promoting my hubs there efficiently. After reading her hub, I learned to gain more readers there. Be warned though, users from reddit could get really nasty.
Another social bookmarking site to note is delicious. You don't get to gain readers from that site per se. But adding your hubs there will get them indexed at Yahoo and Bing. It's worth a try. I have found a little increase in my organic views coming from those sites.
Thanks, All! I think I have read J.S. Matthew's hub at least 10 times and follow it. :-) I am just new to the jargon and do not "get" all of it. I will look into how the other social bookmarkings work. I have not been able to master Reddit, so I will look at the hub written about it. Thanks, again. :-)

I did not send some backlinks to some of my hubs recently, and yet they are receiving good traffic. Should I still backlink them anyway? Whats the primarily difference if I did or did not. I usually send 5-10 backlinks or so....

You backlink a hub to...for example...shetoldme...or blurbalicious...one of them anyway.Then...

Ok ive read a lot about SEO of late, but havent found much about backlinking. Everyone says its important, but they dont really say where to get your backlinks. Is it even something you can control? Last i heard submitting your site to social bookmarking sites is almost useless because it is not do...

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...

OK now I am more than confused. I just figured out that back link is putting a link lets say on facebook to a hub here. I would think that doing this from more than one place would be good. more links coming back to home hub bring traffic, correct. then I read somewhere that you can get...

This is how I understand backlinks. Linking to a webpage that links back to you is more valuable to SEO than not having it link back to you. The more removed this website is from your own the better. For example, linking from one of my hubs to a non-hubpages webpage is more...
