    I noticed this morning when I logged into Hubpages that the home page is showing unranked (usine SEO rankchecker which I have installed on my toolbar) where previously it was showing pr6 - I went to ezinearticles and this is still showing pr6. I checked this again with SEO Quake - same result.

    Internal pages that previously had rank are also not showing any - is this me having a problem with my system or has something terrible happened?

      I also noticed that... I used Alexa, though. A few months ago, it gave a ranking of 6. Now it's not there anymore.

        Sophia, maybe try the "google toolbar!"

        The PR has been re-established back to a PR6 just recently, via google.

        I know it is legit because I brought this not availabe PR issue up a couple of days ago, where google toolbar was showing that info.


        The PR6 for Hubpages is back!

    If it makes you feel any better, Toolbar Larry Page Rank is about 6 months behind anyway

      Not in this case, looks more like HubPages has been singled out and had the PR removed manually. Although it’s often said that PR isn’t anything to be bother about, if one of my sites suffered site wide PR removal I would be extremely concerned.

    a manual removal of PR would be quite distressing! ... I would have assumed a recalculation was occurrring

      That might be what is happening, but I have never seen a site lose PageRank site wide before during any normal PR update. This looks more like a manually applied penalty of some kind.

    Dangerous thing - assuming Mr J hmm

    It still remains a take down for every individual associated with the site... which had to have been Manually Considered, I would think.

    It reminds me of the movie Men In Black.

    Remember the colony of aliens living in the bus locker...

    Maybe that's us....

    Friends elswhere in the world have reported home page pr unchanged at 6 - do you think this means it is a temporary thing?

    If I log out, I get a page rank 6/10 for HubPages.com. Any of my own pages don't even show a zero, that is, page not ranked.

    1. Karanda profile image77
      Karandaposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      But then, even Patty Inglish shows, page not ranked.

    Karanda, I checked again and I am getting same as you, pr for homepage but not any hubs.

    The Hubpages homepage is showing a question mark (not ranking) for me also.

    Since I'm not an SEO expert, I decided to read up on the mystery of the missing Pagerank. I found this article pretty interesting and informative:

    Any thoughts?

    My Hubpages identities that have had consistent PR4 or PR3 are now all greyed out. I don't think this can be a coincidence or good news. Even if PR is not that important anymore.

      Agreed. So are mine - and our personal pages. High PR links are still of some value even if the PR of the page itself is no longer a value to the page.

  13. Aware1 profile image59
    Aware1posted 7 years ago

    I just re-checked the Hubpages home page and the PR is back to 6 (on the google toolbar.) This is a new update, so maybe our personal page ranks may come back too.

    When I brought this up a few days ago after noticing the whole sites PR was N/A, I was satisfied that PR is not all that important. I do agree with Peter Hogan that is would not be a good sign if a High PR site suddenly lost its PR, though it is back.

    The loink shared by Ironer above is quite informative... I'm just feeling reassured for the site as a whole that the main Pr is back. That is a good sign to me.

    I still see PR 0 on the home page when I am logged out, but strangly enough see pr6 on the forum - which dissapears once I log back in!

    1. Aware1 profile image59
      Aware1posted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Okay, I see what you mean, Peter. I noticed the PR6 showing and the and then disappearing... strange. Though, at least it is showing at all again. I'm in wait and see mode, here. It will be interesting to see what the outcome is.

      I appreciate your shared thoughts regarding the PR shifts. I was pretty much shut down as to the non-importance of PR, which I can accept with smaler micro niche sites.

      Though, I wonder what the overall consequences of a site that loses PR after having achieved so high a level as HP. One thing for sure is that all these changes have been a huge learning experience - which is not even completed yet.

    Can I ask... is anyone who is seeing hubpages with a PR in America?

    I see hubpages with a PR of 6. When I go to the American PR Checker, I get N/A... not even 0.

    It takes some time for datacenters to update fake public PR.

    I am also able to see N/A for hubpages via the pagerank checker.

    In two years of me looking at this site's PR, this has never happened. So who only knows what game is being played where. I just don't believe it's a positive.

    It is probably because of the different data centers. Does anyone remember the monthly Google Dances - when we would watch the data centers to see if it was happening? Those were the days. Have your business model in constant upheaval.

    Peter Hogganposted 7 years ago

    I sure do Nellie and in particular update Florida way back in December of 2003. However there is no update or 'dance' happening right now - the most recent was back in January. That said something is happening and as skyfire pointed out it can take some time for PR to distribute throughout all data centers, so we will just have to wait and see what happens I guess.

      I remember the Florida Update like it was yesterday - November 16th, 2003 it ripped fourth quarter sales to shreds. (I know there's no google dance going on now. It's just been a while since I thought about the impact of Google Data Centers on anything.)

      At least with this slap, G let us have our Fourth Quarter.

    I'm now seeing PR6 for homepage through SEOQuake (it was N/A yesterday), but it is still reading N/A for my previously ranked hubs.
