Is it possible to lose a backlink? I just noticed in my Hub stats that I've lost some incoming links.
Yes,any time you may lose back link.its better to keep building back links always.
Yes you can lose links, and remmeber that the hub stats tool doesnt count backlinks, it merely gives you an indication on your backlinks in a 5 star ratings system!
i lost my backlinks too and it is on my hub that has the most traffic. Traffic is still increasing but funny I too noticed last night that it no longer has any back links when last time i looked it had like 4 . .whats up with that?? And all the traffic (well most of it) comes from outside Hubpages.
hopefully you are checking your backlinks with a more precise tool than hubstats
site explorer is rather easy and still pretty accepted
or the link command in google
link:www.yourUrl.com or link:http://www.yourUrl.com
yes: hubstats is just a 1-5 star general quick glance type of metric - one star DOES NOT equal one backlink
Yahoo site explorer checks backlinks - type yahoo site explorer into google and you will see what i mean
The link command is an operator for google search, you literally type what I posted into the google search with 'youurl" replaced with your own
the results that google posts will be sites that link to "yoururl"
Unless your web page has higher PR value backlinks the Google link:www.example.com command won't show any of them.
I like Yahoo's site explorer much better than using Google's operator. Or Google's Webmaster Tools, but unfortunately we can't use that with hubs.
Thanks Guys. I appreciate your help and expertise. It just proves the Hub community is the BEST!

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...

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.

I started about 7 weeks ago and have been publicizing/backlinking most of my hubs through the bookmarking sites SheToldMe, Snipsley, Xomba and Redgage.Does anyone think (or know) whether Google, as part of its new ranking system, will now be penalizing pages linked to from sites such as these...

I know it fluctuates depending on a billion variables...but for you hubbers here who are making decent money, how many backlinks do you create for each hub. Please specify between social bookmarkting, article marketing on directories like ezine, blogging and commenting on blogs.Thanks!

There is a lot of bad SEO (search engine optimization) advice out there, and the use of automated services that procure backlinks to your Hubs is one particularly egregious example. Using services to get backlinks can result in your Google AdSense and/or HubPages account permanently banned. Yes, we...
