    Actually not only web designers but all the webmasters look for the high PR back links because it helps to get manage page rank of particular URL for that it have been made... and as we all know it Hubpages is a PR 10 website so that we all prefer to get free back links !! smile

    Writerscentro, HP is not a PR 10 site its just 6 (that's high but not 10 though)
    You get your own subdomain and it won't be 6 it will be 0 in the beginning and you'll have to make it grow. Mine's reached 3 at present

    Hubpages is like a micro social networking site with a great page rank! Great way to get good backlinks and also a great way to meet great bloggers!

    I think besides just to get a single backlink, it should be possible to make use of Hubpages to actually promote what you do and share useful information or just fun things to build up a following. From what I have seen of the community here, it's a great place to start. There are other sites where trying to express an opinion can be hard without getting some sort of verbal slingshots slung at you. smile

    Hubpages has a lot of authority with Google because of its PR 6 rating.Therefore, it's easier for your Hubs to rank on the search engines if you optimized your hubs for the right keywords than creating brand spanking new blog pages with no authority.

    Keep in mind, however, that if your Hubscore is lower, your links are considered nofollow. In other words, your links will get no link juice for backlinking until your Hubscore increases. I can't remember the count: 80 or 85 and up? You have to check.

    Hubpages did that on purpose to keep people from spamming and putting cruddy content up. If everyone did that, Hubpages could lose its high PR status. It's to get us to write better quality content.

    You can check if links are nofollow or dofollow by downloading the free Firefox plugin called NoDoFollow Plugin. Then turn it on.

    Pink = nofollow
    Purple = dofollow

    Its actually not a bad thing that webmasters use Hubpages, they bring such a wide array of information with them and as long as they contribute fairly then I see no harm.

    The main reason they are here is because the Hubpages site is PR6, and therefore a backlink from a hub carries more strength than a backlink from most blogs.

    For me, the main advantage of publishing here is the community and networking between people that share an interest

    Hubpages are on of known and recognized centric place for writers, designers, marketers, firm owners and etc and the reason which actually is there is the uniqueness, informational and quality of the posts here. Lots of sites are there with good ranks like PR 6 and above but all do not do checking of the of the posts and that is where Hubpages differs form those sites. And this is the reason of its having authority in Google. Backlinks though are nofollow but you will bookmark it and share to wide audiences then apart from Hubpages network it will reach other readers too who are looking for related information and result of which you may get clicks and lots of visitors specially if your title is catchy.
