I am using yahoo site explorer for checking backlinks but I want to find specific links from a blog post to a hub, how do I check that?
Thanks so much.
I'm not familiar with this. How does it work? How do you use it?
I just tried that for one of my hubs, as each hub has a unique URL. Ran it through, it gave me a list of all inbound links. Then selected filter Inlinks, "except from this domain."
Great, I can see links from my blog page to HP but not the other way around. Does HP hubs take time to index?
Hubs are usually indexed shortly after publication, then revisited by bots every 10 days or so. However, your blog may take awhile to get re-crawled. One-way links are more valuable than two-way (reciprocal) links, from what I hear.
You can use the free version of SEO Spyglass,just google it and they have a whole bunch of free to use software,the only drawback to the free version is you can't save anything.
A little less reliable is the SEO status/Alexa page rank bar for the firefox browser.
I have not used SEO Spyglass, I will surely check it out. Thanks.
Cookingiva,helpful hints pertaining to what specifically?
Sorry, I was not clear. I meant hints for using SEO spyglass free version for now.
It's really simple and self explanatory. All you have to do is put in the URL you want to check on the screen that pops up right when it starts up. Then after it checks another screen pops up asking if u want to check for back link factors. Press yes and it does it's thing and will tell you where the back links are and the anchor text and some other things.
I use SEO spyglass very often, but unfortunately if you use the free version they only show backlinks from yahoo site explorer with additional anchor text, they don't show backlinks from google or bing and limited only for 1000 url.

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?

I know there is a way to get better ranking on the search page but I don't know how. I just checked one of my hubs. I just typed in the general key words not my title and I am #8 on page 1, how do I get to number 1, 2 or 3 spot?

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.
