    I have to concerntrate on backlinks this week.. as well as some writing

    and if anyone knows, how to stop particular google ads from appearing on my page, so I can publish it- as I think a couple of the adds for one of my hubs are not very tasteful.

    I found a good backlinking site and lost is.. anyone got good suggestions?

    Go to your adsense account.  Click on the Adsense Setup Tab.  Click on competitive ad filter.  Select the ad URL you want blocked.     Or, choose the Ad Review Center and filter ads by category.

    View my profile, I have several sites listed that can be used for back linking.

    Also, a hub search for back linking will provide lots of hubs on the subject.

      I'm slowly backlinking all my hubs from Xomba.  I don't get much traffic from them, but have made a few $$ from clicks on Xomba....

        thats a good way of doing it. I try to get myself to spend a day backlinking, yet get stuck, yet if I work at it a bit like you do with Xomba, I might find it easier.

      Repeating myself from another thread I'm afraid, but maybe this hub (of mine) - moderators feel free to remove if you feel it is self-promotion - will help. … -Challenge

      After I've hit the publish button on each new hub, I write out a 50 - 100 word keyword rich summary, and use it to promote each hub at those sites (they are backlinking sites - they want us to put our links there).

      On both Redgage and Tipdrop, there is only space for a single sentence more or less, so make it keyword-rich.

        Self promoting is NOT a wrong deed.

        You are actually helping us to learn more. Would you mind telling me a little bit about the 60 days challenge? I am on the way to dig it out from the hubpages. But any special tips from achievers directly would be more useful, I know.

          The 60 day challenge was when a group of us got together and wrote  30 hubs n 30 days. just like the 30 day challenge that is offered here. It was run by Sunforged, a hubber here with excellent SEO knowledge. We worked as a group and interlinked all our hubs from day 1, then spent the following 30 days cross promoting each other and our own hubs on a variety of platforms.
          It's just like a smalller version of what Hubpages already does, as right from day one our hubs are cross-promoted and interlinked with other hubbers (you see the links to others hubs on your hub and vice versa).
          There's been 2 60 challenges so far. Keep an eye on the forums for sign of another but it won't likely be until early next year at the earliest.

          Meanwhile, what we have all learned is that keyword selection is probably the most important part of hub writing. It is probably better to write around a keyword than it is to write and then look for suitable keywords that match what we write. (which is what I used to do).

          I like to backlink my hubs as soon as possible after I publish. It makes sure it gets indexed if nothing else. While most hubs do indeed get indexed within hours of publication anyway, I have had the odd one in the past that took months.

          Within a day or two of publication most of my hubs make google's front page. If they are lucky they stay there, if not they drop a long way back and gradually move up again, so that maybe six months after I wrote them they start to see search engine traffic again.
          Without backlinking, they will still find their place in the search engines, maybe even front page, but it will take up to six months or even longer.

          So those that say backlinking makes no difference could well be right, but it can make a short-term difference.

            Hey IzzyM, you are one wonderful person and have a lot to share and I have a lot to learn. Thanks for your time. I am on the way to your hubs :-)

      You are welcome smile
      I've found that doing this little bit of backlinking definitely helps. Once it is done, I don't tend to do any further promotion but with the right keywords, hubs find their own level in the competition out there.
      And hey for most part, they do quite well smile

    Thats a good idea, I might try adding backlinking as part of each hubs publishing process.
