I have recently seen a lot of forum posts and a couple of hubs giving individual sites a ranking based on PageRank
There is a big oversight going on here, the "juice" your link receives from the site it is on, is based on the PAGE it is on.
So just because facebook is a PR9 SITE doesnt mean your link is on a PR9 page (this is just an example)
1. the link is nofollow
2. the PAGE is most likely PR0 or PR-
A link on Reddit for example is not a PR8 backlink!
The PAGE your link is on is most likely a PR0 and will never grow any higher.
In order to be a PR8 backlink, your link would have to be on the front page of Reddit....forever, or at least when the PR spider comes along..it wont be, it doesnt work that way.
many people come to Hubpages to get backlinks from Hubs high pagerank SITE ..once again your link would have to be on the front page (highest ranked page on the SITE) whatever link you wanted to promote when you came here...will never be on the front page!
Now, individual hubs do grow in PR surprisingly quick, I have one that is PR3 and only a month old, thats a quick ranking..very cool, The Hubpages site itself is a PR5 (on the front page) have I said that enough yet?
So Digg, reddit,shetoldme,xomba ..all these bookmark for backlink sites we use...they cannot be measured by the SITES Pagerank.
PAgeRank is per PAGE
* there are exceptions, and hot categories in bookmark SITES can get some good PR, but you can never judge PR based on the sites PR
Ditto about pagerank. The juice seems a bit more complicated though. Bare profile links from high authority sites seem to bear much more weight then article links from low authority sites.
One thing I like about writing on the examiner is I can link to my hubs, and I get quite a few quality backlinks this way.
I never work on back links. I'm getting 50,000 page views a month at the moment off 100 hubs. I would rather write another hub than put energy into back links.
Also page rank doesn't determine where your Hub ends up in Google. I have PR3 hubs that get beaten out by PR1 competitors and I have PR1 hubs that beat out PR5 competitors.
Having said that, I know some hubbers get great traffic to their hubs from Ezine articles and I wish I could get the enthusiasm to write some.
I clearly need some help in this department. I have 182 Hubs, have been here more than two years and have not reached 35000 page views in that time, never mind a month. What am I doing wrong?
DO you really want to write the kind of Hubs that get a lot of traffic, Tonymac? Or would you rather write the hubs that you enjoy writing?
If you want traffic you have to forget what interests you and focus on what interests other people. It can be dispiriting...
Do you link to your Hubs from your other web writings (or vice versa?). I notice you write on Qondio, for instance - there's no point in writing there, unless you're writing articles and including a link to a Hub or a site.
Just keep writing, I am on around 2000 hits a day and write about all kinds of things, some hubs work, others don't!
If you are having trouble with Hub traffic try working on linking (Internal and external) and maybe setting up a blog on blogger.com or similar to try and post your visibility to search engines!

I am really not liking the front page of Hubpages these days. When I first click in to HP, I see a list of the five top questions and articles. It usually something about politics or beliefs. First of all, is that what...

I know everyone is sick of this topic. But aren't we allowed ONE outbound link on a hub? I write about astrology, but put one link to a planetary table so the reader can go to that table and see what astrology...

Note the top hub. How did it make it through QAP? If it hasn't made it through QAP, what is it doing being the first face of HubPages to people seeing the homepage for the first time?

LOL I had to reply to this. I was waiting for Isaballa to do it, but I am happy to oblige.1. There are only 15000 results for that search term2. This is possibly the most patronising thread I have seen on the forums.3....

I wish I could exclude Q&A when I want to view hubs while signed in. Also, you can only see 5 hubs, and they are always the same. I wish there was some way they could rotate the hubs on the front page more...
