Profile Page Ranking on Hub Pages

    Can anyone help me to understand how to achieve a ranking of 4 on Google for a HubPages profile page?  It is mentioned in this HubPages blog article "The More You Publish, the More Traffic Per Hub" by Jason Menayan and I would love to understand the concept.

      I don't know how it works, but I have a PR4. Then again, I also have a lot of hubs, so maybe that does it.

      You need to create backlinks to it on other sites.

      Are you a member at any other sites?  Check to see if you can list websites on your profile on those sites - if so, add your HubPages profile, with your tracker.

      When you comment on a blog, you're usually asked to enter your name, email and website.  If you have a Hub on a related topic, you can enter that as your website - otherwise, enter your HubPages profile URL.

      PR is built up over time.  Build links to it and keep writing hubs and it will reach PR 4 fairly quickly.

      Google updates the PR's about every 6 months or so. I'm sure they update it more regularly for themselves, but it's every 6 months for the public.

      More hubs gives you more traffic...its true, But I think Its not the only reason to get PR. Optimization of your profile page may help you to get PR too.

    Sorry girls, but as far as I can see you are both ranked n/a. I use SEO Quake which is a plug-in for your browser. Don't bother with it unless knowing a lot of info about websites - like their PR or how many backlinks they have etc is useful to you, because it slows down your online activities.

      Or you could just turn it off when you're not using it.

          You can get the Google toolbar, and there is a little box that turns green when a site is ranked, and it gives you a PR when you put mouse over it. If it is not green at all, the site is not ranked. If you hover mouse it will say that the page is not ranked.

    PR (pagerank) is not important, and have no influence on your traffic and earnings.

    And it is increasingly getting unimportant.

    Now, what you have to look and strive for is the PostRank.

    Google is shifting that way. smile

    Best Regards

    when I searched for "mega1 hubpages"  I got my webpage in first listing, my hubpages profile in second place and some of my hubs etc. plus my profile at redgage.  not that many would search for me this way, but it is interesting.

    I'm a 4/10 but I don't know why or what it means.

      10 is the best you can be and number 4 is pretty great. Congratulations.

    I was ranked number one by hubpages profile within two months of joining hubpages. My corporation ranked even faster, within two days once the copyright was added to my profile.

    For the Corporation I am competing with a global mission, and for wheelinallover I am competing with off road vehicle enthusiasts.

    The way I understand it the more you publish, make forum posts, and answer questions the more your information will get ranked by Google.

    Before panda there were 200 results for searching my nickname. Its down to the thirties now. Some search engines use other criteria but I ranked #1 on the major three. My hub page profile has slid for the corporation but that is as it should be because my website now is at #1, For getting yourself there you might try what I did, copyright the picture you place at the top of your hub, only do this if it is your original photo though.
    I have invited all hubbers to take this number one spot but have had no takers.

    What is post rank.

    I have also notices some weird changes to my page ranks lately. Most of the article that was page rank 0 became suddenly 1 or 2. It it good.

    1. wheelinallover profile image81
      wheelinalloverposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      As near as I can tell your page rank numbers change with the number of people who read you hub. I don't know if search engine hits make a difference but bet they do. Hub pages is very hush hush about how the whole system works.

      The one thing I can tell you from my experience here short as it may be is people will read your article if the subject or title interests them no matter what the score.

      The most hits in one day for me came from an article that was rated below 50. I can pretty much bet that if it hadn't been part of a challenge there would not have been as many hits though.

        Page rank has to do with links to the hub last I knew. I have more backlinks now creating page rank for hubs.

          big_smile  I was getting ready to track down that other thread conversation where this was discussed and link it here.  That might be a place to start.  smile

          EDIT:  Found it - some interesting discussion here, especially from Psycheskinner and thisisoli.

    As mentioned above, Rank goes from N/A through 0 to 10.

    Most sites are in the 1-5 range and 4 is a very good score.

    Ranks are based on the number and rank of sites linking to you.

    Another question I have had is why would my Statistics page be ranked?  Why would there be any links to it at all?  That's one thing that doesn't make sense to me.
