It seems that all I have been hearing lately is how important it is to create backlinks to increase your traffic, and the more I thought about it, the more limited it sounded. Sure you can post a few backlinks through your Hub to related topics you may have written about, or even another hubber with relevent information...( we do receive a portion of the proceeds to promote other hubs...) But this still sounded so limited. You have to get someone to your Hub in the first place in order for them to have a chance to click on any links you may have embedded in your article. Then it hit me !!! With all the free website offers on the web today, why not create a series of "Specialized" Free Websites in order to direct traffic to not only your Hubs, but the hubs of other writers with relevent information on the subject !?! I just completed my first website of this nature and wrote an article about it... Now I have a site full of referrals and backlinks that I was also able to place my Google Adsense Ads on to help increase my profit potential even more !!! Now instead of promoting a single article, I am able to promote a whole website full of relevent information !!! Search Engine submission was simple enough, so now I am spending a couple of hours a day promoting my new website through other channels, and best of all... Everything was totally FREE !!! All I have in it is my time and energy.
If you have a unique idea for promoting "Backlinks", please post...
Just to clarify, you don't receive revenue, but the opportunity for revenue. By getting approximately 10% of the ad impressions.
How are you promoting these hubs? Just a link? A blurb you've written? An excerpt from the introduction?
Its really simple... I write an article that combines several different elements on a topic for my website, and suggest that the people that visit my site read the articles I have listed to the side of my content... It simple Gives the Title of the article and I create a link to the hub I am refering them to... Of course I do have to make it sound really great and encourage them to click on an article... If you read the article on my hub it pretty much explains everything... And I have a link to the site in my article... If you read my article and visit the site you will see many of the articles I have promoted and the simple formate I used to accomplish everything...
I can see it being very easy to start a blogger blog on a topic that gets written about here, each post to the blog is a 'why I loved this article, its totally awesome' and includes a link to said article, some of which would be my own article and some of them would be to my fellow hubbers articles (tracker links included ). If they are product related topics then adding an amazon ad just in case the reader prefers to just buy
I am confused about the free website you are talking about. Didn't you have to pay for hosting and a domain name? Are you using Wordpress with your own domain?
Here's a list of my favorite hubs so far on backlinking: (Many of them I have begun using and I do see more traffic)

I am still learning about this topic also and would love to read more on backlinking and increasing traffic to hubpages. Please list some of your favorite hubs.
Trose... Most of the free web hosting sites require you use their logo in the link... and the space they provide is very limited but more than enough to write ad copy and promote links. I used Yola dot com and they allow me to make as many as 5 free individual sites... If you do a search for free web hosting sites, you would be surprised what you will find... Most offer more than enough space for this type of website.
Not a bad idea
Could be an idea for creating new free hosted blogs, blogs about all my favorite 'outdoor' hubs and other websites etc. If folks liked a blog that recomends 'gem' resources like our articles here might even buy stuff off that blog since amazon now is usable with blogger.
I am sure that other hubbers would be more then happy to have their articles back linked to your websites, I know I would be very grateful for that
All in all something I may have to think about
Hey Kirsten, I'll post some of your Hubs onto one of my blogs with the backlinks etc. If you have any Hub in particular that you want to promote, just drop me an email.
Exactly Kirsten... Using a free website to promote related articles is a great place to use Google Adsense too !!! I write for several sites, so all my backlinks don't just refer back to HubPages... I promote my articles from other sites as well to try to increase traffic all across my board !!! I'm hopeing to not only get readers... I'm looking for writers that will sign up in my referrals column...
I know that varied back links are best (not just from blogger) and that google tends to play favorites with its blogs so getting other back links is still important but the blogging itself should add to ones earning potential, and this would be an easy strategy for someone like me who still has to do 'real work' . If it helped to get me out of the JOB and freed me up for this fun work then so much the better
Darkside, I didn't mean to leave you out. You have written a terrific hub recently also on Backlinking. A good one to check out!

Did you wait until you had plenty of hubs and the ad accounts activated before you started promoting your hubs or did you start promoting right away?
