I noticed this morning when I logged into Hubpages that the home page is showing unranked (usine SEO rankchecker which I have installed on my toolbar) where previously it was showing pr6 - I went to ezinearticles and this is still showing pr6. I checked this again with SEO Quake - same result.
Internal pages that previously had rank are also not showing any - is this me having a problem with my system or has something terrible happened?
Not in this case, looks more like HubPages has been singled out and had the PR removed manually. Although it’s often said that PR isn’t anything to be bother about, if one of my sites suffered site wide PR removal I would be extremely concerned.
I just re-checked the Hubpages home page and the PR is back to 6 (on the google toolbar.) This is a new update, so maybe our personal page ranks may come back too.
When I brought this up a few days ago after noticing the whole sites PR was N/A, I was satisfied that PR is not all that important. I do agree with Peter Hogan that is would not be a good sign if a High PR site suddenly lost its PR, though it is back.
The loink shared by Ironer above is quite informative... I'm just feeling reassured for the site as a whole that the main Pr is back. That is a good sign to me.
Okay, I see what you mean, Peter. I noticed the PR6 showing and the and then disappearing... strange. Though, at least it is showing at all again. I'm in wait and see mode, here. It will be interesting to see what the outcome is.
I appreciate your shared thoughts regarding the PR shifts. I was pretty much shut down as to the non-importance of PR, which I can accept with smaler micro niche sites.
Though, I wonder what the overall consequences of a site that loses PR after having achieved so high a level as HP. One thing for sure is that all these changes have been a huge learning experience - which is not even completed yet.
In two years of me looking at this site's PR, this has never happened. So who only knows what game is being played where. I just don't believe it's a positive.
It is probably because of the different data centers. Does anyone remember the monthly Google Dances - when we would watch the data centers to see if it was happening? Those were the days. Have your business model in constant upheaval.
I sure do Nellie and in particular update Florida way back in December of 2003. However there is no update or 'dance' happening right now - the most recent was back in January. That said something is happening and as skyfire pointed out it can take some time for PR to distribute throughout all data centers, so we will just have to wait and see what happens I guess.
I remember the Florida Update like it was yesterday - November 16th, 2003 it ripped fourth quarter sales to shreds. (I know there's no google dance going on now. It's just been a while since I thought about the impact of Google Data Centers on anything.)
At least with this slap, G let us have our Fourth Quarter.
I'm officially now my first month into HubPages and loving it; however, I'd like to share with the community some of the observations I've made in the first 30 days.The OpportunityLet me start by saying that I think...
Back-links are the main aspect of off-page SEO. There are several ways to get back-links. Social media, like posting your hubs to Facebook and Twitter, forum posting, and blog commenting are the most common. Just stay...
