Back link o your hub plays all the game?

    I read mixed opinions about back linking hubs, I guess Google algorithm considering lot of things to rank the page well besides backlink. What you think? is back link really helped you to rank well? or without any back link a good content(with 1000 words) will rank? share your experience

      Backlinks are a part of getting ranked well.  Another part is your competition, how Google examines your work, etc.

      I took a quick look at your content.  You might want to put a related photo to your hub in the picture.  For your green tea hubs, why not put up a picture of green tea?  You can get creative commons photos from wikipedia, sxc.hu, and a variety of other sites.  People like to see related photos.

      You can get more specific with some of your topics too.  Instead of writing one hub called "All About Pregnancy Back Pain" why not write two hubs: "Causes of Pregnancy Back Pain" and "How to Relieve Pregnancy Back Pain".

      Most people will improve their writing with practice.  If you want to make money, writing things that people will find useful and interesting will get you far.

        I forgot to add: if you use a creative commons photo, please credit it properly.  As you probably know, it is wrong to steal someone's work.  People allow you to use creative commons photos, but they want credit for their hard work.

    Like the post above your hubs are unreadable, no amount of links can fix that.

      Yeah - A little harsh. I have seen much, much worse on HubPages in my short time here.

        I wasn’t trying to be harsh, and there is definitely worse here on HubPages. But links won’t fix anything if the page they point to is completely unusable. Thats not harsh, It's just how it is!

        Content Is King. If you ignore that simple fact of online life you are simply self harming any success you might possibly have.

          I agree Peter 100% - even from an SEO point of view isn't it pretty much accepted that Google measures how long readers stay on a page - therefore, if the content you are sending traffic into is unreadable and your visitor leaves as fast as they came (or faster) pretty soon Google will stop showing you in SERPS.

          Writing online (for profit) is NOT easy, whatever anyone tells you and if the question is coming from the point of "how can I make money writing?" (which it is - or why you be bothered about backlinks) then the truth has to be told.

          Some people should write online for money and some should look for other ways to generate an income from their efforts - content is King is only half the story... Great Content is KING, Queen and Country... and more to the point - Profit.

    To answer your question, some people here prefer organic backlinks, relying on content to get them a good rank. Some people have strong backlinking programs that they follow for each hub. Both seem to work, though the backlinks do help a lot I think.

    You also need to look at keywords, and researching your topics and trends as well, though. You can have 1000 excellent words, but if no-one is interested in that topic, it won't net you much traffic.

      So do you think backlink is must for every hubbers hub? as you described backlink as a queen.

    I agree that content is king and with sunseven that backlinks are queen. Gotta be rule one and two of marketing in my opinion.

    A few minutes of my day consists of opening the exel spreadsheet with all my hub domains and answering some questions at yahoo answers.

    Rated well for backlinks.
