    I've noticed some (not many) high score hubbers have their profile PR like around 4, but not others. I wonder why search engines don't seem to pick up our profiles, yet why they do on some? I care about this because I assume it brings more traffic to our hubs. Am I right? Any tips on how? I've put my hub link on few of my sites for a while, but I don't even see a PR0, confused...

      PR takes a while to come through, despite what the earlier poster said PR has absolutely nothing to do with traffic, it is merely a backlinks calculation. PR is also not particularly important, and should be used as a guideline to track your backlinking efforts.

      My profile pr is generally 3 though it has occasionally dipped down to 0. Not sure why, but I have never done any intentional backlinking to my profile, so it doe not really concern me.

      Do directory submission and Social bookmarking of your hub daily. It will help to get PR.

    PR on any page is depends upon the backlinks and traffic to that page.

      Thanks, kind of make sense. Guess I'd have to make more effort to promote my profile to get PR

    What hubbers have PR4 profile pages? They probably know best on how its achieved.

    edit - ok, i knew that(thought it was still at 3 though) , but was curious on what other hubbers with some time on the site may have ..

    Ive done little to no intentional backlinking or promo of my Profile, I believe my profile page got some linklove for being part of the 60dc, so I dont have a helpful response for someone who would want to boost their profile PR.

    Nor do I think its worth attempting

      Then you'd be the one to tell us!

      If prchecker.info is correct, I've got PR3 and you have PR4.

    Dear dont run for PR of profile Google Automatically rewards you of hard work. Page rank is like a lift and traffic on your hubpages is stair. Taffic is more important than Page Rank.

    thanks for this good Question.

    I sure don't know the answer. I don't backlink, though have a link to my profile in one or two places, who doesn't? I've never strategically backlinked and can't think of one site that's likely to be do-follow.

    What I can tell you though is this - I had a pr4 for a long while. Then it vanished. For several months, stripped back to a big fat 0. I asked a few people if they knew why, they didn't. Me neither. A couple of months back it returned.

    So beware of the perils of thinking you've got something good. Google giveth, Google can taketh away. And then giveth back again when it feels like it smile

      Interesting. I've had my hub profile linked from few of my sites for a while, nothing happened. Well, nothing I can do either, if I don't get tips on this from the experts here  - if any, hehe

      It can rank like anything else I'm guessing. My profile was quite topic specific, with anchors that rotated around freelance writing. Now that I've changed it all it seems Google has no idea what the page is about and is reconsidering its value in light of the changes.

    Mine was three, then I changed the anchor links and now its 0. It seemed that I made my profile rank just like any other page due to the anchors, not entirely sure what's going on though.

      Thanks for the idea, even though still no sure answer. Maybe google indeed likes more focused topics under a profile, so it knows what it is for therefore giving you PR, who knows
