Question about backlinking and backlinks

    I've been doing quite a lot of backlinking recently. Can anyone tell me why some sites sometimes award you with a backlink (that shows up in yahoo) and other times they don't? For example, I have sent loads of articles to the usual squad - Xomba, shetoldme, redgage etc, and only now and again does a hub actually get a backlink. I'm assuming the spiders see them all the same, but send an article to 10 places and you are lucky to get one actual backlink.
    The other thing is why do backlinks vary in value even from the same site? At least one of my hubs has a PR3 backlink from TipDrop, yet most are 0 even from the same place.

      I haven't found one site yet, including Yahoo, that shows all of my incoming links. One of the pros on here is probably better suited to answer this, because I just don't worry about it honestly.




      Pages have PageRank. Domains do not. The homepage for a site may be a PR8, but other pages in the same domain could be PR0, PR1, PR2, etc.

        Ahh...that makes perfect sense Irohner. I should have thought on that LOL

        I do worry when all that is stopping a hub from getting to the top in google is a few sites with low PRs, poor on-page optimization and 100 backclinks. Only way to beat them is to have a few backlinks myself.

          Just build more Izzy, and don't forget to bookmark them and submit to RSS smile

            Bookmark the links when they are on other sites and submit to rss? I still haven't got to grips with the whole rss thing. I need to take some time out and study it. I've read the hubs about rss feeds and don't understand them frankly. I'll try reading them again. Things do drop home eventually!

              You're not alone there, I cannot get to grips with RSS at all. I've just about learnt how to make an rss feed with certain kinds of hubs but any more than that and I'm at a total loss.

              To be honest I'm not entirely sure that I really know what I'm doing with backlinking either. I have maybe 7 or 8 places that I submit each hub to, but other than that I don't really know what to do.

                Well I've just gone and aided my latest hub rss to a whole load of sites, and no doubt that's NOT what you are supposed to do. Was I meant to just pick one place and submit there?

                Jen, you've learned to make an rss feed with hubs! Well done you!

                The backlinking thing I can do - it is incredibly boring but I am getting faster at it. Both Ryankett and Hal Licino have made hubs with site lists - its just a matter of working through them.

    Ye, that's basically what I've been doing, working through different sites backlinking my hubs. I found a website that has a list of loads of sites that give dofollow links, but most of them are a bit over my head.

    I've read a fair few backlinking hubs, but I should probably start reading more and learning more now that I'm comfortable with what I'm doing.

    I'm having a hard time getting my head around RSS feeds as well. I have read many hubs explaining RSS, but I am still not sure whether I have set things up correctly.
    I wish I could find a hub or a website that demonstrated what to do with RSS to an article once it is published.
    For example, I signed up with Feedburner and put in the hubpages rss feed for my latest hubs. Now I don't know whether I need to keep going back to feedburner and update that each time I write another hub, or is it now set up that it will "see" each time I publish a new hub.

      If you set up the RSS feed for the "latest" hubs then it will update automatically each time you write a new hub.  As there is a limit to the number of hubs in a RSS feed, they will drop off at the same rate as you continue to write hubs, however.

    Thanks for the advice Wilderness. I noticed that my three latest hubs got indexed within a day, rather than taking several days, which was my average before, putting my rss/latest feed into feedburner. Good to know I don't have to keep going back and update it.

    just a word of warning, many sites which claim to contain sites with do follow links are spammed by sites which temporarily enable do follow comments, and then disable tehm after they are included in the directory.
