    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.

    Hi sholland10,

    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. :-)
