There was a reference to depression in that paragraph and it attracted people from all over hubpages. People were tearing each other to shreds and when I and one other...

Hi all... I am still learning the ropes here at hubpages and have made $3.91 so far in about a month which is not wonderful but is at least slightly motivating. Anyway, I'm having trouble driving traffic and have to increase backlinks apparently. I read one time that it's a good idea to search for...
