Hope this might help some people.
My method for drawing traffic to my Hubs (these are referral links so if you don't desire to sign up in that way just fix the links) <all links snipped by admin - no affiliate links in the forums, please>:
1. Write a Hub
2. Join InfoBarrel
3. Write an article on InfoBarrel that contains two links back to my original Hub.
4. In my InfoBarrel signature box I can add 2 more links to my Hub or even as a referral for HubPages.
5. Then I'll join a couple more backlinking places for bookmarks:
c. She Told Me
So I hope that helps a little. It sure does help my Adsense income!
Those are good backlinking tips. I always link back from my blog usually but these are other good backlink resources.
You could go the other way around and link from some of your Hubs to your blog so you get more traffic to your blog. Just another option.
Thanks. There are reasons I'm doing it the other way around in this instance. I did on one hub send them to my blog, so it's sort of case by case.
You may have to review Xomba you can't from this month (Feb 7th) add bookmarks that promote hubs on other sites-this is seen as over promotional.
I had an email from them on the 8th requesting that I don't do it any more or my account would be blocked.
I've found that that depends upon what type of bookmark you make. If it's a bookmark like, "Check this product out!" or a typical "selling" bookmark then you'd likely be booted, but you can link to quality articles on your own sites. Just don't overdo it. They're cracking down on that.
You need to write informative hub and use some seo techniques to get ranking in search engine.
Thanks for sharing that link building strategy, I will definitely try it out
Very good tips!! For some reason I can never get my links to work on shetoldme
need to do something about my hubs.
could use your tips
Thanks, this is very helpful. Thanks for sharing.. it's so difficult to get outside traffic. My views mostly comes from HP.
You all are very kind. Thank you!
I've found that using these sites in such a way can help out your Hub rankings quite a bit.
You are yet to achieve your 1000 visits accolade, what makes you think that your strategy is working?
Whilst DoFollow backlinks will push you up the search engines in the longer term, they sure won't achieve much in 4 weeks. And, if you are building for the longer term, you can take Xomba off of that list - it is nofollow.
Not at 1000 visits yet here. I've got plenty of other sites and articles that receive traffic through this method. So this definitely will work through HubPages.
DoFollows and noFollows aren't as important as they used to be. The quality of the links is what gives much more authority. Xomba is still going to be a decent place for backlinks (even with their new rules). It's high in Alexa and creating a much higher quality site.
Do you have a source for that statement? Yes an authoritive link, that with PageRank, is the most effective... but if it is NoFollow then it will be disregarded entirely by Google. I believe it will also be disregarded entirely by Yahoo and Bing too. I read Matt Cutt's blog quite frequently and at no stage has he suggested that NoFollow backlinks are no longer disregarded... he reports all changes to the algorithms.
I would suggest that you could work much more effectively by cutting out time spent obtaining NoFollow backlinks and dedicating your time only to DoFollow backlinks. You also state that the quality of the backlink is what gives you more authority, whilst you are quite right in stating this you seem to have an flawed perception of what a quality backlink is. A quality backlink is a DoFollow one from a specific page which already has PageRank, preferably highly relevant to your content and ideally anchored into relevant keywords.
Posts on SheToldMe, InfoPirate and InfoBarrel will begin with a PageRank zero. Those from SheToldMe and InfoPirate will likely always be a PageRank zero, InfoBarrel backlinks would probably have longer term value as long as your article gains PageRank and is relevant to your subject matter.
I use SheToldMe prolifically, as a means of a quick and easy backlink, you may have noticed that I am the top referrer on there and was one of the very first people to use and promote the site. If you want to pursue your current strategy, which in fairness is just a simple version of my own, you should be adding Snipsly to your list. Trust me when I say that there is NO value from Xomba bookmarks, if you want to use that site then stick with longer articles and don't link to anything. Swap out Xomba bookmarks for Snipsly bookmarks, then use Xomba as another platform for longer primary content.
Despite using sites such as SheToldMe and Snipsly, I have no doubt that the value of the backlinks is not particularly high. Download SEO for Firefox, look at that PageRank indicator on every site that you visit, that will help you. I wish you the best of luck, using backlinking sites is not a bad strategy but your knowledge could improve and I hope that you take my pointers as constructive rather than negatively.
Best backlinks? Go and guest blog for people, lots of people, nobody turns down free articles. Ideally you want backlinks pointing from a wide variety of sources, rather than numerous backlinks from the same source - that tends to devalue them, to the point where they have very little value at all.
Great advice Ryan. Sounds like you've got much more experience than I have. I'll take your advice and apply it. I agree with the Snipsly idea. I've got a bunch on there as well. Not as fun to write on because of the WordPress aspect, but still a good place to receive a couple links.
I may be a little cynical but what also helps your adsense income is 6 referral links in a forum post.
Thank you so much for your tips, I've never even heard of half the places you mentioned. I'll give it a go now!
hey thanks for the tips
im sad that i lost my hubpage acc and couldint recover it
i forgot the email and pass
i donno which email id i have used ,wish they would send recovery link to the email id asociated with the user name
Another way to keep people engaged and interested in your hubs is through the quality of your hubs. I have found that linking related pages helps people find spend more time, and hopefully click on your affiliate links.

I just wondered if anyone backlinked their backlinks, like putting Shetoldme links on Reddit for example. I'm seriously running outta ideas of how to get traffic.
