    Hi guys,

    Besides of getting traffic from a hubpage, ofcourse a hubpage is also good for SEO purpose.
    When a hubpage has a score above 75 it will give linkjuice to your own site.
    The value of this linkjuice depends of the pagerank of the Hubpage.

    Is it correct to say,  that it can take month or even years, and a lot of hubpages ( 100 + ) for internal linking , that a hubpage gets a pagerank 4 ? I.m.o... a pagerank 4 is worth all that work....everything below isn't.

    I'd love to read your opinion about this.

    Thanx!

    What is a linkjuice? big_smile No doubt some 200 or 500 hubs will make a serious income or lets just say a modest one ... I don`t really understand much of SEO so please if you could explain how a page rank value can be increased , my Hub Score varies from 90 to 94 and it must have been somewhere to 96 or 98 , but it goes down because of two of my hubs that are marked as "Duplicate Content" just because there exist so many articles regarding Paypal Online Money Transfer Processor and another about Google`s History so I am pretty not happy about it , I wonder if I should delete the two hubs above ... anyone with more experience than me can give me some advice? smile I would be pleased to receive some "good advice" big_smile big_smile big_smile

      You don't need to delete them. If your personal score is over 75 - you get all the "linkjuice" you need.

    Linkjuice means that a site ( hubpage )  pass a link to another site ( my own money site ) .

        Oke, clarification is required ;-)
        I'm the owner of a Dutch site. And I'm interested to make good quality hubs. With unique and enough content. But it's not allowed to make them in Dutch. So I make them in English. In this hub I make a few outgoing links. One of them is linking to my Dutch site. There will be a notification that the link is pointing to a Dutch site ;-)

        I can't expect a lot of traffic from this hub to my own site. But I can use this hub for SEO purpose. I'm wondering, will it be worth all the work ? If some of the hubpages will get a pagerank 4, then imo it's worth all the effort ;-) I know it's hard to say. But is it possible??

        I hope this makes some understanding to you guys.
        Thanx!

    In some circles of the internet, links are the choice currency.  This means that a link from site A to site B is very valuable to site B.  Especially when it is topical and from an authoritative source.  The main reason they are considered valuable is because Google has an algorithm that calculates pagerank.  In simple terms, Google will rank a page higher in the search result pages (serps) when it has links pointing to it.  So, if you want your page to show up high, simple wisdom is that you need links to it.

    I've been following SEO for several years, and at one time, this was the case.  However, it's now possible to have strong links and still not rank.  The key now is to have some good links and deep content. 

    If you want to get traffic without links to your pages it can be done, but it takes deep analysis (or luck) to find the right combination of quality indicators.

      In regards to Page Rank...
      I'm not sure if page rank is even all it's cracked up to be. I mean, I know it helps with getting pages indexed in Google, etc, but it doesn't necessarily mean you will get top page insertions on Google. For example, if you search - breastfeeding - on Google, here is the order the pages show up in and their rank.

      Breastfeeding.com - PR5
      4women.gov/breastfeeding - PR3
      cdc.gov/breastfeeding - PR6
      babycenter.com/breastfeeding-basics - PR5
      en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breastfeeding - PR6

      If you notice, a PR 3 page is number 2, with PR 5 & 6's following. So I don't pay as much attention to PR as some others do. I think most of it is just hype. Then again i don't know much about SEO - that's just an observation.

      Would love to hear others opinions on it though! Do you think it makes a difference? Or why do pages with lower PRs sometimes show up in higher positioning than sites with higher PRs?

        Positioning is not important. What matters for SEO / linkbuilding  is PR and relevancy.
        I'd rather like to have a backlink on a PR4 site on Google page 3 , than a backlink on a PR1 site on Google page 1 ;-)

    Sascha, to answer your question - yes, it is possible. There are people with PR5 profiles, and quite a few with PR4. There are PR4 hubs, too - for example http://hubpages.com/hub/How_to_Become_Rich

      Thanx Misha,
      I checked this site. And it's clear to me, that the PR power of this hube is internal linking between the other related hubs written by the same writer.

      It's also clear to me, that when using a hub for SEO purpose, the ROI is verly low.
      It takes al lot of time to write 50 - 150 hubs ...in the hope that some of them will ( maybe ) have a PR4 in the end.

        Exactly - That's why I said if any of the topics I write on......

    OK Sash,

    Understand now -

    It's a lot of work and I'm not sure you could do it without making several, linked together hubs thereby giving yourself a personal PR - mine is a 4 now I believe.

    If the subjects you are interested in match the subjects I write on I would be open to an offer smile

    I have found Jonathan Ledger to be writing very intelligently on links and SEO. I have an RSS feed from his blog on my "Online Marketing" Hub, which documents my ongoing experiments with exactly this issue.

    We're watching to see which inbound links from my Hubs show up at Yahoo, and I update it every few days with results, and anything I have learned.
