    If bookmark my hubs link in different social bookmarking sites, what are the pros and cons behind this? Please help me.

      It will get you small amounts of traffic that seldom click ads.  It will get you minute amounts of "google juice", possibly raising your SERP's.

      It takes a lot of time to actually participate in social sites, time that might be better spent writing more hubs.  I backlinked for a while to a handful of sites, but gave it up as not worth the time.

      Other will tell you that it is necessary to spread hundreds of backlinks if you want to be successful - pick what works for you.

      If you do bookmarking, it is a major PLUS PLUS. Bookmarking is actually one way of marketing your hub. Aside from that you can do link building too.

      I currently do blog commenting as my ways of building backlinks. I can do 100,000+ backlinks daily.

      Let me know if you need help.

        100,000 divided by 10 hours is 10,000 per hour.  That's 166 per minute or a bit over 2 per second.

        In other words, we have here a spammer using automated tools to spread junk around the Internet.  It's the type of crap that I delete from my moderation queue every morning.

        I'd recommend that HP staff take a hard look at this guys traffic and do the right thing.

        I just checked his profile - he's selling backlinks too.

        Do we need this stuff?  Isn't this exactly what Google wants to get rid of?

        Aaargh.  Never mind.  Carry on as usual.

          Selling backlinks and promoting spun articles.  You're right - this is exactly the kind of thing google wants gone.

            But does HP care?

            That's the question I don't know the answer to.  Should people like that be here?

            They aren't breaking any law.  Google hates them, but Microsoft hates Google and Apple hates both of them.  It's just business, right?

            Does the presence of admitted spammers here hurt us with Google or are we now insulated by our sub-domains and therefore shouldn't care?

            1. wilderness profile image97
              wildernessposted 6 years agoin reply to this

              Good questions, and I don't know the answer.  If I had to guess, a spammer won't hurt individual subdomains too much, but could hurt HP as a whole (contradictory, I know).

              The other problem is that the matter is subjective.  How does HP ban one, based on a very subjective judgement, while allowing others.  I can't imagine a well written, definitive, set of rules that would last more than a week here - things change too rapidly for that.

              Bottom line is that you and I don't and can't make the call - it is solely up to HP and is based only on business.  Not what we would necessarily like to see.  This kind of junk may harm the web as a whole (and in my opinion does), but does it actually harm HP or does it provide income with no harm?

                We don't make the call on anything.  We just report - they decide.

                But I don't report guys like our enthusiastic comment spammer above.   I'm wondering if we should.

                  That's what I mean.  Some of the hubs are awfully short and could be considered substandard as a result, but the account and profile have violated no rules I'm aware of.  What would you give as a reason for flagging?  I think it would just waste the moderators time.

                    I agree - that's why I never have.  I'm just wondering what the general opinion is and what HP's opinion is.

        100k backlinks? Do you use senukex or something like that?

    I would avoid social bookmarking and work on more effective backlinking techniques.

    Just checked a bit farther.  The guy is also bragging about posting "up tо 200 SPUN articles pеr day оn аll my blogs аnd sincе thе articles arе spun, it wіll minimize my risk оf gеtting banned by google."

    We need this?  Seriously?

    Let me just throw this out here.

    If we see a spun hub, we report it, right?  Having that kind of hub here hurts all of us - perhaps less so with the new sub-domains, but we do still hop hubs and we do report that sort of trash, right?

    So what about a hubber who brags about spinning hubs and selling fake backlinks?  Is that somebody who should be reported or not?

    My reaction has been to groan inwardly and ignore it.   I hate it, but my impression is that this is still "acceptable" here. Am I wrong?

      He's really good at it too... with all of his promotion and spinning he has managed to get 10K views in 20 months and raised his profile to PR1 ....

      I think it just proves the worth of his methods!!!!

        wildernessposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        lol  I hadn't caught that!  Even if he has 99.999 views it still isn't much for that length of time.
