    My research has show that the Hubpages home pages is at a PR 6 which is very impressive and probably the reason that there are so many contributors! I have seen a few individual hubpages profiles at PR3 and was wondering if anyone had seen any higher profiles or hubs?

    Further, does anyone have any special tips, tricks, or ideas on how to increase the PR of your profile?

    Is the PR of your profile as important as I think it is? I believe that if you focus on your profile it can be utilized for other gains.

    Thanks Hubbers!

      i believe it would be very important because it's sort of the base for all of your hubs. But i'm kind of new around here. How does one find out the PR of a certain page?

        You can check the PageRank of a page with

        Go to that website, enter the URL that you would like to check, enter the anti-bot code and then they'll give you the PR. HubPages itself indeed has a PR of 6 but for example has a PR of 3.

      I think there are some out there with PR4, I would not worry about it too much though.  PR is not the reason I stick with Hubpages, it's the earnings that work out for me tongue

    I think everybody's going to have to forget about PR altogether soon, there hasn't been a toolbar export for many months.

    there might never be another one?

    PageRank updates are dynamic. As soon as Google discovers that a link has been added or lost from a page, then PageRank will update automatically.

    What you are referring to is toolbar PageRank which only gets updated periodically to bring it into line with real PageRank. Toolbar PR hasn’t been updated since April 2010. So although the toolbar says that the HubPages home pages is PR6 it might actually be PR7.

      Thanks for the clarification Peter..;-)

      A self-proclaimed SEO expert I know of recently claimed ina thread on another forum that PR has no relevence any more due to Google not updating PR since April 2010 - I'd say (reading your comment) he only has half the story then.. is that right?

        PageRank has been devalued so much that I don't personally think it plays a major part in rankings any more. Toolbar PageRank that's months out of date is worthless.

        The notion that PageRank holds great significance still exists. Visitors that know about PageRank might be swayed into thinking a page with high PR is more authoritative than those with low PR. I guess there is some truth in that, however as a ranking factor PageRank only plays a small part.

        I would certainly agree that the current toolbar PageRank holds no relevance because it is so out of date. In the good old days, when reciprocal linking was the fashion, if you swapped enough links you could accumulate PR and gain top rankings relatively easily. Google seen this as a way to game their rankings and changed their algo to stop that kind of activity. Since then both reciprocal links and PR have little value but I would not go as far as saying that PR is valueless.

    Thanks for sharing your insights, Peter.

    I think Google has been working for some time on developing an alternative to pagerank… something that can’t be so easily “gamed”.

    It will be nteresting to see what happens next.
