I'm about to backlink to my blog. Question

  1. Pamela Kinnaird W profile image89
    Pamela Kinnaird Wposted 8 years ago

    I have a website planned, but not ready yet to build, so I've decided to add my blog to be linked in through Adsense.  I've got that part figured out and done (I think.)

    Here's my question:  I was going to link a word here and there (maybe five of them throughout the 16 month blog) to link with five or six of my hubs.  Does it matter whether I put the linked word into the blog and then add the url for the particular hub -- or is it better to make a blue word in wone of the hubs and add the link to the blog?  Or doesn't it matter?

    Thanks.

      If I am understanding your question correctly it sounds like your asking is it better to link from your hubs to your blog, or vice versa, right?

      Which way you decide to take it would be based upon your goals. Do you wish to drive traffic from your blog to your hubs, or the other way around? I would suggest doing only one or the other, but not both. While you could do both, what you would have then are reciprocal links which are not as good as one-way links from a SEO perspective. By only linking from one to the other your creating one-way links.

      If you decide to link from your hubs out to your blog your going to be limited to 2 links per hub and you won't be able to do it in too many hubs without your author and hub scores getting penalized. If you choose to link from your blog to your hubs you can do this as much as you like.

        Oh, good.  That's exactly the information I needed!  And I've been reading a lot of articles (e.g. Mark Knowles' articles and others) so I know this is like a drop in the bucket of what needs to be done if I'm in this for the long haul.

    I just started an at home business and thought about doing a journal in my blog about the success or lack of success I have.  I was going to backlink it in my hub.  Should I?

      I would say the same thing again, it depends upon what your goal is? I believe most hubbers who setup a blog use it to drive traffic to their hubs, but a few do the opposite. There is no right or wrong choice here. It all depends on what you wish to accomplish.

      If your trying to drive traffic from your new blog to your hubs then your also going to need to get some incoming links to your blog so it has traffic to pass on to your hubs.

      I just work the social bookmarking sites to try and get enough link juice flowing to my hubs to rank well for my keywords and don't worry about blogging. To each his/her own though....

      If it's a hub about the business, and the blog is to update your progress in it, maybe it would be suitable to add an RSS feed to your hub from your blog.

      But I don't know a darned thing.

        I don't understand RSS feed sad

          An RSS feed will show posts from a specific webpage, on another webpage.

          I just figured it out myself, so someone correct me if I'm wrong. But I think there are two ways an RSS feed can be helpful in getting you increased traffic.

          So let's say I wrote a hub about fashion. I'd include an RSS feed from a popular fashion blog or website. On my hub it would show up as intros to the last few postings on that blog or webpage, however many you set it to show in the RSS feed module.

          Number one, the RSS feed would be constantly updating my page, prompting search engines to keep reindexing my page. Which I guess helps keep your page more in the front, and not being left behind as dated material.

          Number two, the RSS feed is linking your hub to a popular, successful, established blog or page -authoritive sites, they call them- in the same field, industry or topic area as your hub content was about, sort of reenforcing the legitimacy of your hub. Search engines read it and go "oh she's linking to vogue. must know what she's doing, rate her up". Type of thing. Sort of. I think.

          RSS feed is kinda like a news feed, but all of the 'news' comes from one specific blog or webpage which you specify.
