    I notice that on most of my oder hubs that are fairly healthy that I have about 5 or so backlinks coming in. What is considered a decent amounmt of links?
    I always link to all the sites on the share button and it looks like I'm getting some nice links from other sites too.

                Absolutely out of my depth here, but I will certainly pay respect to the most respected Hubbers on here.

                And Pcunix as well of course.

      You can never have too many.

      I had a web page that was consistently on page 1 of Google for a specific phrase, then suddenly fell off.  I wanted it back on page 1, so I wrote articles at Ezinearticles until it went back up.  It took about 20 articles, but now it's the number one article for that page.

    It’s not just about numbers, where the link appears on the page that links to you is also important. If it appears in a sidebar or footer along with a ton of other links it will carry little value. On the other hand a link from within the main body or content of the linking page will carry much more weight. This is commonly referred to as contextual linking.

    Another aspect is IP diversity, i.e. links from multiple websites hosted on different IP's will carry more weight than hundreds of links from the same site.

    One way links are much more valuable than reciprocals. If you link back to the site that links to you are pretty much canceling out that link and any possible benefits.

    The ideal link would be from a relevant page on a relevant authoritative site, however most of these pages sit on competitor websites. Because of the numbers involved, it is not always possible to find enough related sites that would be prepared to link to you, article syndication can make up this shortfall. 

    Another factor to consider is that each page will require different levels of linking depending on how competitive the term you are targeting is and how trusted you own page is.

    So, in answer to your question the correct amount of links is equal to the nunder required to achieve and maintain the ranking you require.
