When it comes to Hubpages, SEO is just as important as SEO on a regular website you might have. While Hubpages has the trust, authority, and good page ranking of Google, you still need to do all of your on-page and off-page SEO to ensure you rank well within search engines. However, one of the nice things about using Hubpages for your content is that you can generally build quality backlinks at a faster rate than, say, a website that is only 3 months old.
If you build links on a website that is new at a fast pace, you may risk your website being isolated by Google, which means your website will be de-indexed from the search engine. I have been using Hubpages for almost 2 years now and have tried various strategies related to link building and affiliate programs. I’ve figured out what works and what doesn’t.
Backlink building is a crucial aspect for a new website or page if you want to start attracting visitors to your pages. However, there are many other factors, such as on-page and off-page optimization.
The 4 essential tips are:
1. URL keywords. Those are the keywords that appear in your direction to that page. Make sure you can include some keywords that you want to rank for in the URL.
2. Title tags for your pages. Another very important step since Google and the other big search engines will always try to find the most relevant pages to place them at the top of the users’ search.
3. Backlinks from similar and related websites. It is not good to get backlinks from a website about cars, for example if your website is about health.
4. Social networks also play an important role now that Web 2.0 becomes more and more popular. Many social media links are shared through word of mouth advertising. Share a link that is unique, maybe even controversial and see the reaction it gets!
