Just wondering if you ping your Hub Page
say, to pingomatic.com does it increase your Google rank
or is it a waste of time?
Not directly. It allows to notify blogs directories that you updated your blog. Since SE loves blogs directories when they are spidered your blog would follow. So Indirectly yes.
But since many people are doing it I wonder if in the future it will be as efficient
SEO techniques come and go, some faster, others stay longer. Who cares now about meta tags? Probably pinging will get obsolete as well, the questions is - how fast and what replaces it.
The advantage to pinging is that for a blog it can get Google to crawl and index it quicker since it notifies one or more directories that you have a new post or page. It's not really touted as a way to get higher rankiings.
For hubpages, I usually see them indexed in several hours, because Google is pretty aggressively crawling HP, so there's no real improvement to be had in terms of indexing speed.

Hey guys, are all of the hubs on hubpages capped at PR 3? I'm curious because I don't think I've ever seen a hub with a PR above 3. Are there any hubs that have a PR > 3? If so, could you provide some examples?

I have a hub that gets anywhere from 200-300 views every single day. It's an evergreen hub. Unfortunately, if I type the title in GOOGLE it's not ranking anywhere near 1st page. However, it is on the 2nd or 3rd page for...

I recently created a new hub about PageRank and after I published it I remembered that it should be PageRank instead of the Page Rank that I used in my URL. I really felt like crying as it is a long hub and would be a...
