I read somewhere on HubPages that our profile pages get rankings? Seem to remember it was a 1 up to a 4? Is that Google ranking? Can anyone explain to me what that means?
Every indexed page on the internet gets a page rank between 0 and 10. A 0 is reserved for very new and un backlinked sites while scores such as 10 are reserved for sites such as Facebook and Google with millions of backlinks.
Hubpages.com currently has a PR of 6. Without a lot of work, it used to be easy to get hubs up to a PR of 2-3 and higher with a bit of work.
Page rank is said to help determine how Google ranks pages in the search engines, although there are a lot of other factors that are more important.
So yes, if your profile is indexed it will get ranked - however a rank on your profile isn't important because you're not trying to get people to view you profile through search engines.

Hi, I am new to HubPages, but I've noticed some of my hubs are indexed on Google and some are not. One of the earliest ones I posted (over 4 days ago) has a little 'traffic falling' arrow next to it. I tried to search...
