    Just wondering if you ping your Hub Page

    say, to pingomatic.com does it increase your Google rank

    or is it a waste of time?

    Not directly. It allows to notify blogs directories that you updated your blog. Since SE loves blogs directories when they are spidered your blog would follow. So Indirectly yes.

    But since many people are doing it I wonder if in the future it will be as efficient smile

    SEO techniques come and go, some faster, others stay longer. Who cares now about meta tags? Probably pinging will get obsolete as well, the questions is - how fast and what replaces it.

    The advantage to pinging is that for a blog it can get Google to crawl and index it quicker since it notifies one or more directories that you have a new post or page.  It's not really touted as a way to get higher rankiings.

    For hubpages, I usually see them indexed in several hours, because Google is pretty aggressively crawling HP, so there's no real improvement to be had in terms of indexing speed.
