My question is this. I've created my articles and placed some links to my site in them. My assumption was that this an opportunity where you can sculpt the keywords in the text links that point to your site. It is also a way to link to your site's internal pages, pages that other people's links don't always point to. It is also a source of one-way links.
Are are all of these points valid and is this reason to continue on with this by creating more articles and linking to yet more internal pages? Or over the long-term is using HubPages of such little value that my efforts could be better spent elsewhere?
I'm not targetting hubpages, never even been to the site (for the above reasons, I keep seeing the site mentioned in SEO circles). There's plenty of other sites like this and I'd not be getting a link to a primary site this way.
If the article is going to get 100 backlinks, don't you want to be getting backlinks to your domain page rather than backlinks to a squidoo lens that then links to your page?
I guess you can "control" the first page of the SERPs by doing it that way though.
