I take a lot of my own pictures and add those to hubs. When I do this, I credit myself and link that credit to my HP profile. I generally use at least five pictures so the slideshow option becomes available for readers, but generally use around 10 pictures. I wound up in the Google sandbox for a week in early January and, out of paranoia, I'm making every effort to avoid landing there again. Because these credit links are ultimately creating backlinks, do you think Google will ding me, thinking I'm trying to unjustly build up backlinks to my hubs? Should I delete the bulk of the image credit links and just use one or two per hub?
So help me out here - if I use 10 photos and only link two of them back to HubPages am I OK?
I think you'd be fine. I've been linking my credit line with every picture I provide back to my profile. I think I'm gonna go back and limit the link to two or three of them, just to be on the safe side with Google. My page views are consistently moving upward, and the last thing I wanna do is wind up in that sandbox again. That was a scary week.

I would like to know if there are any hubbers here that swear by buying legit backlinks? Ones that are not spammy and will not be looked down upon by Google. What I want to know also, is if I can buy backlinks for individual hubs and how should I go about doing so? I'll be upfront, I have NOT...

Dumbest backlink question of all times. Trying to ensure I fully understand backlinks so here...goes. As I understand it if I have a link on a .gov or .edu site and that is clicked by someone then that's counted as a bl from .gov or edu. Correct? Next, if someone is on a...
