    I know this may sound like a dumb question, but I have no idea what Backlinking means, and it sounds very useful. Can someone explain to me in simple terms, as I am a simple Hubber with very little computer knowledge.

      Links (those blue parts of text that transfer you elsewhere when you click them) pointing to your own hub or site from other hubs or sites are called backlinks. So when visitor of the other site clicks on this blue thingy, s/he is transfered to your hub. The process of getting backlinks is called backlinking. smile
