Backlinks help this time please!
So, I get an understanding of KeyWords but not to over panic about them. Backlinks, its easy enough linking intext to other Hubs and sites = what is too many? but what is the way to link back to the Hub? is this through my FaceBook, MySpace, YouTube or do folks use those sites that say they offer free back linking, unsure if im keen on them?
Hello, How many links are too many? I would say only have three or four links to other hubs or hubbers within your text. The more links you have away from your hub the more confused readers and search engines get. Your hub should be the one being linked to not the one giving away links.
So to the question of backlinks.
Yes Facebook and Twitter are ok for some link traffic, but they are not available to the majority of users of the internet. The best sources of back links are "expert websites. In this case "expert" is nothing more than longstanding well viewed webpages or hubs, usually over three months old.
So if we imagine you write a series of hubs on a subject, Trainspotting, you publish several hubs over three months, the oldest of these gets good viewing figures and then as you publish the latest hub you link from your oldest to point traffic to the latest. The old hub is "expert" and is to the search engines referencing your latest, that is a good point for the new hub. Someone looking for trainspotting hubs sees that you wrote several and moves between them.
You could also set up a trainspotting blog, this then becomes an independent feature on the net. Your blog as it matures links to several of your hubs and also becomes "expert" to search engines. As long as you add new ideas and feature your work on the tightly focused world of trainspotting the search-engines keep seeing a link.
Then maybe you decide to add places to stay as a additional feature, you can use your trainspotting hubs and blog as "expert" features providing your back links as you build newer content. All the time only linking a few pages at a time within you tightly focused network.
So you are building backlinks all the time, rreferencing "expert" sites which you have created.
Bretsuki that's a great reply thank you, Im working through my Hubs after being away for 11 months and un-cluttering them, adding appropriate links, and also with my four medical condition Hubs Iv place three links in eack Hub to inter-connect them trying to show none clutter too?

Does backlinks from your own hubs or someone else's hub count as a proper backlink for the search engines? Cheers.

I have been on hubpages for two months. I have read multiple articles on SEO and backlinking. Ninety percent of my hubs do not have backlinking. But I choose for a while to say no backlinking. It...

If you get a backlink to a hubpage from another site, how long is it before google et al pick up on it?

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. ...

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

Some of the hubs that I have written have found their way onto forums and other sites on their own, but others have not yet. The ones that have been are doing much better though. How long in general does it take for...
