How does one go about getting traffic and their hubs seen?
Is there a magic amount of key words that I should be using?
What in the world are back links?
What tips in general do you have?
Your hubs are very short and rife with spelling errors. For example, your hub http://inevitablesecrets.hubpages.com/h … 1000-Words has 5 spelling errors in the very first sentence.
This puts readers off, so please spend a little more time proof-reading each hub before you press 'publish'.
The search engines quite often pick up the first sentence or two in a hub despite your writing a unique summary, so this is really important.
I notice many of your hubs are short. The more words you have, the more chances Google has of actually picking up your keywords. Try and aim for at least 700 words in each hub.
Be very careful what photos you use. Check out the learning center for how to obtain hubs that are not copyright, and try and always credit your source, if you can.
Welcome to Hubpages
-Don't write in saturated topics (such as weight loss or acai berries or anything on which thousands of people have written).
-Choose evergreen topics that will still be relevant a month, a year or even a decade from now.
-Choose good keywords that match what people are typing into Google.
-Don't keyword stuff - put the keywords in your title, tags and URL but only when needed in your hub and use synonyms as well.
-Give it time. Most new members take at least 6 months to see even $5 in earnings. Hubs you write today may not reach peak traffic for 6-9 months and in some cases longer. If you're after a passive income, it takes time to build.
Backlinks are any link pointing to your hub or website. From anywhere on the internet. Some backlinks are worth more than others. For instance a link from wikipedia would be worth a lot more than a link from your grandma's cooking blog.
Hubs will get picked up by search engines and this should generate some views. This however depends on the topic and the key words with niche topics and key words being the best. You can post links on social sites like Facebook and Twiiter this can get you some more views. Back links are links that come from other places such as social sites, other hubs, other articles etc. Once a viewer clicks on one they get directed back to your hub.
Another very good site is Pinterest which is generating many views as of lately.....

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?

Hi there,I've been hearing discussions that noindexing hubs (because they are idled) impacts their backlinks in some way, and I'd like to find out if this is true.I've been researching this a bit online and have found the following:- According to the Google Webmaster forum, Google *does* count...

First you find an image online you might like to use in an article. Save it to your computer and rename it using keywords. Upload it. Then add an image title and caption. Assuming you use keywords for all of that, would you consider it over optimized?

This topic has been raised a couple of times in other threads, I thought it was worth posting as a separate topic to get more attention. We all know how important backlinks are. Current thinking is that simply exchanging links (site A links to site B and site B links to site A) is a...
