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.
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.
I agree with Darkside and also I should thank you, I just checked my profile page now and it is PR3.
Hi darkside, have you ever noticed traffic changes before and after you had your high PR? Thanks
Yeah, obviously you hold the truth, please share with us,hehe, even PR alone may not generate me more traffic, I just love to see that fatter green thing, I get better sleep
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
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.

Just wanted to share this. Someone pinned or "flipped" one of my hubs on Flipboard, a magazine site. So I've had a ton of traffic all morning. I made my own magazine and the traffic magnified even more! (currently 16 visits per minute). Might be worth looking into as an alternative...

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is that my idle hubs are not available for anyone to see, and I have to actively...

I know I'm starting another lost traffic thread, (geesh, enough already), but...Here's why. As it has been noted, HP has suffered, site-wide - all of us - even the touted success stories, traffic loss due to Google's year-long algo changes. That's the BIG problem that is almost only solvable by...

One thing that I've noticed in my traffic stats is that one particular hub about a particular acoustic guitar - seems to be doing better than other hubs about what I would think would be guitars that are more sought after.So I looked at the hub that is doing so well, and tried to figure out why...
