I just noticed that PR has returned to the main forum thread.
Is this a return of PR to Hubpages and it's Hubs?
PR6/10 on the main forum thread page.
Looks like LIFE is returning to Hubpages!
Not to mention, I've seen a huge spike in traffic...I'm up 1000 views above my recent average, which is actually 400 more than before the Google Slap!
Unfortunately that PR indicator will make little difference to your SERPS positions. Many slapped sites have retained their PR, it is a worthless indicator these days
True, PR isn’t of any great value these days, but when a site loses PR site wide on over 1.5 million indexed pages it looks more like a penalty. It's great for HP that PR has returned to a couple of pages however it's the hubs themselves and the profile pages that are important to the writers here. Although PR isn’t that important it makes me wonder if authoring new stuff for a site that might be under penalty is a worthwhile use of my time. I will be a lot more content when I see PR move deeper into the site.
Google stops update PR for long time, but I believe it counts.
all you need to do is adding more backlinks and the PR will be increased.
Wow, Cags, thanks for posting this! I'd gotten so depressed these past few weeks every time I checked my stats, that I purposely didn't look much anymore. I just checked'em, though, and my traffic was the best day I've had since the smackdown! I'm just a hair short of pre-smack traffic!
I just noticed the PR6 in my toolbar. I checked my profile which was a PR4, but is still presently N/A at this time.
I was just gonna say that I didn't see the reappearance of the PR. I think that's gone for a while.
I just saw it, before posting this thread. I don't get it?
It's been coming and going all day. A couple of hours ago, I noticed the PR6 on the Feed page, but nowhere else. Now it's gone from there, too. My profile has been going back and forth between PR4 and N/A for almost a year now. I normally just ignore it and go about my business.
Logged in, logged out, homepage, forum, today, yesterday, earlier.........its always 6 in my screen Don't worry.
I don't really understand what are you people talking about as I have never found the PR gone. It is always showing PR 6 both when logged in and logged out. And I have seen a gentle increase in my traffic since the Google update although the amount of traffic I get is very low. View to click and click to sale rates has been poor but I didn't loose any traffic.
Nope it was not there yesterday,.. I am relieved that it is back..but hasn't done much for my hubs though..the clicks are still not coming
Cagsil, what is PR, what does it do and where exactly do I find?
Hey Rosie, as Ryan said earlier in this thread. It really doesn't seem to do anything. But, PR is PageRank. Usually, the higher number 0 to 10, the better.
There was a thread recently on PR and what happened to Hubpages. However, I'm too tired to search for the link. It was a way to gauge your hub, but seems to be irrelevant now.
If you have Google toolbar installed, it's a feature that is located under "bookmark". That same thread has a link in it, for SEO Quake program, that gives detailed information about pages.
I never look, that would make me crazy to check that stuff all the time ... do you guys ever move from your computers.
EDIT: I found this article dated March 10,2011. I don't know much about PR stuff, but it may be helpful for those who follow it.
Why care about PageRank? I am happy to post my articles on HubPages because HubPages contains quality articles, and receives high traffic, and all of which are high quality.
A high quality hub dosent link to the same website 5 times. Thanks for bringing your hubs to our attention. Obviously you have escaped the recent upsurge in hubhopping and perhaps should have thought a bit more about your first post on the forum!
That's an absolute Final Fantasy statement... are you seeking the BS and Tell-A-Porky Accolades?
Oh Hang On...
Don't tell us that the traffic on your posting account has finally broken 10 views a week!
Wow... Congrats mate... No wonder you're celebrating with such gay abandonment
It says N/A to me. And my traffic is the worst it's been since the algo change - yesterday it was down to less than 850.
My traffic continues to fall. It's 75% below where it used to be. No traffic. No clicks. No money. Amazon sales are down 96%. People keep saying their traffic is rising. Mine is falling even lower, yet I'm still on page one with many of my articles.
Could be that you now have too many Amazon product ADS. not sure just saying
Congrats on your 300 mate!
Have you been out there having a beer with William?
Maybe if you whisper in his ear, the big G might give the PR back again!
Hope you're though the worst of it over there! Take care.
It presently on many of my hubs and profile. Not to mention, it's back again on the main forum thread(on an off that is).
I have had over three hundred hubs for about a year I've actually being deleting substandard hubs #justsaying
Well... I guess that I need to seriously complain about this 1978 version of MS Dos that I've been using.... It acts like it is about a year behind!
I'm sorry.... I was genuinely being polite and I appreciate you pointing that out to me... I guess that I really need to upgrade, but I have to say that really upsets me... as I have the top score on PacMan and was learning Tetris! Oh well... good luck with your deleting then...
Pagerank does correspond roughly with how high you come up in Google searches and thus traffic. So it is not the one true parameter, but still means something.
OK my PR4 just came back, this is the fifth time it has gone to zero and straight back to PR4. I'm still thinking "glitch"
I'm seeing some blah results. Nothing too terrible (I could have dropped completely out of the SERPs) but nothing great, either. I've been at a standstill for about the past week with steady traffic. I won't be publishing anything for a while (waiting for the contest) so I will be able to more clearly see where my hubs are going traffic-wise.

Jeez, I check my stats this morning and it's a disaster. I run to Quantcast and discover it's all of HubPages and not just me. What the heck is going on? I even rushed to a calendar website to see if there was something special about May 1; there wasn't. I checked the news for anything that could...

Hey guys , I read some hub blogs that the Page Rank of Hubpages has been increased to 7. But when i checked it thru firefoxe SEOQuake I found I to be just "5".And then another problem is that the page rank for my hubs are listed as "n/a" . Should my hubs also be getting the same...

I keep an eye on my stats daily. I noticed a sharp decline in my earnings for yesterday, April 10th. I know it is wrong. Has anyone else been affected by this yesterday? Who do I need to speak with about this? Thanks.

Am I correct in assuming that any page rank on the "my account" page is for hubpages as a whole, not for my hubs in total? The page rank on "my profile" is for my hubs, right?PS- I, too, am learning so much I feel as though my head is exploding.

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

Many people have noticed a drop in Hub views that is not reflected in Google Analytics data. Has HubPages Acknowledged The Hub Count Problem Identified on 2/21/13?
