      Ethical backlinks are a lot of work…, so I just decided to forget the whole thing. smile

        I doing backlinks. I mostly refer people to my hubs the easy way, thru my blog and facebook which helps a LITTLE.
        But reddit.com is best for me.
        I submit my link -from hubpages- and click, done.

        They only let you submit like 1 every 20mins.

        shetoldme.com I hear is good. I've started getting traffic from them. You join and can submit all you want. (See the link on my profile)

        I'm with you, paradigm.  A handful of ethical backlinks takes more time than writing the hub.  In the long run, I'm ahead by writing a couple more hubs than backlinking the one I just wrote.

        I the information is good, hubs will backlink themselves, so to speak.  It just takes longer.

          I like that wilderness. I HATE backlinking.

          You what else I detest? Keyword lookup. It takes like 20 min for every hub and I just wanna Writeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

            I don't actually mind that part too much.  Sometimes it's interesting to see what is actually searched for, and occasionally I find a better phrase, even to me.

            Also, writing is communicating; if I call it "purple dog poo" and everyone else calls it "doolittle glue", then I better do the same if I want them to understand me.

        hello, sorry, i am still pretty new to this. What do you mean by ethical backlinks? Which aren't ethical? (spamming... but im sure there is more to it than that?) thanks, smile

      You can get quality backlinks without abusing the system.

      Leave thoughtful, interesting blog comments, for example.

      I've written a couple Hubs that you may find useful.  smile

        Building a system to create ethical backlinks is essential if you want your writing to do well. I have a system for things I've written elsewhere and will use the same system here... one hub at a time. My system involves blogging and content writing sites, plus social bookmarking. I try to keep track of all my promotion efforts.

    Then what is the purpose of the 60 day challenge? The other 30 day is to build backlinking right? Or you just keep posting hubs and hope that some of the traffic come?

      The 60 day challenge was a private group set up by one of our more successful hubbers, Sunforged. Not private exactly, as it was open to all hubbers. But once the group was formed and the start date set, that was it, no-one else could join in.
      It was quite a challenge to write 30 hubs in 30 days, then the group together went forward in a group promotion which is quite different to singly promoting your own hubs.
      The 60 day challenge was a huge learning experience for most of us who took part. That was only the second ever that has just been completed.
      I believe you thought it was a Hubpages promotion, and not a members' promotion. Perhaps you might like to reconsider the tags you have used in your 'challenge' hub when you are not part of the challenge.

        Ok will do. Sorry as it seems kind of complicated to me. When will be the next challenge?

          There's a section of this message board for the 30 day challenge. You can join anytime, and start your 30 days. I started a few days ago.

    submitting bookmark to technorati, digg, stumbleupon, delicious, reddit, xomba, and twitt etc. But it doesn't end there. You  have also to make friends or form a community when you get there just like in Hubpages. If just submitting bookmarks and do nothing, it will not help because almost no one will click your bookmark. This is the problem with free traffic, got to work for it. Hope this help.

      I looked at Xomba a week or two ago - and wrote my first article there. Then I realized their links (even for bookmarks) are nofollow... so I've crossed them off my list of cool places to write articles for backlinks.

      People are writing articles there and making money with AdSense... but I'd rather write for a place where I can get good backlinks AND make money with AdSense, know what I mean?

      Most of my AdSense/Amazon success so far comes from sites I've set up in my niches... I've just started here at HubPages and am still waiting for my first evidence of income. Of course, I know it will happen soon enough.

    Virtually none. I make some links here and there, but that's it.

    I concentrate more on finding unique niches with little competition and using strong on-page SEO.  I'm not saying links are a waste or anything - they are important. It's just something I don't do much...and probably won't start doing routinely. More of a dislike for the tedious work than anything else.

    If you do them, I would actually suggest going mostly for do-follow links, but would also remind people that no-follow links can still be important for drivng traffic/income to articles. No-follow doesn't mean the SE's will ignore them, it just means the supposedly will not use them to influence ranking.

    Right here, right now, this minute, you can probably use an automated system and 'get away with it.'  I wouldn't use farms, blasters, and would actually avoid automaters.  Link juice today could be link poison tomorrow.

    I think backlinks are here to say for a while, but the ever growing genius of Google will constantly find ways to sniff out the more natural links.

    Just write naturally, keep some aspects of SEO (keyword density, linking, etc) in mind, but don't go into writing something with SEO gain as the reason for it.  You have to write, and link, in the most natural way possible to not only get good results now, but in the future as well is how I feel.

    Are backlinks from Hub to Hub real backlinks?  Or considered a lesser quality of a link?

    1. wilderness profile image97
      wildernessposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      To google, links from HP to HP are not as valuable as from some other outside site.  To the reader traveling around HP looking, it makes no difference where they are from; I seriously doubt that most readers will ever realize that all of their visits were to the same site, i.e. HP.

      From Google Webmaster Tools it seems like Internal links count as once per the same domain.  So the first internal link would be about the same as a link from any other source.  Then you would get the diminishing return factor that you get from other links from the same domain.

      However, Google Webmaster Tools also has an internal linking function but that counts a lot of random links rather than the contextual internal links that would show up on the normal backlinks per domain.

      Backlinks from hubs are quality if they are contextual and are considered a unique link per domain like other lilnks from domains.  Otherwise they just go in the internal links pile.
