I downloaded the SEO Quake from Mozilla. While making comments on some of my hubs I noticed PR 2 for 4 of them and just a while ago I noticed PR 1 for 1.......are those good?
PR is not necessarily an indication of traffic, worth or profit. But they are a decent guesstimate as to how authoritative Google finds those pages. Generally speaking a well written, informative hub will gravitate towards a PR 2-4. So yes, in a rough way, it's a good sign.
Having said that, it is an almost worthless standalone measure since PR is passed throughout the site and is dependent on the quality of the site overall as well. If you had written those self-same hubs on a new blog they would have different values.
Like yourself Cardisa, I wanted to understand this PR thing more. So I started reading up on this and discovered that in addition to the number of backlinks your hubs have, the amount of pages you have written can also help raise your PR. Therefore, I need to get writing more hubs very quickly.
Thanks for that Hollie, I like seeing the page ranks 1 and 2 for my hubs though, even though I have been told that means nothing.
PR is a rough indication of how high in google searches your pages are. It ranges from 0 (worst) to 10 (best) and is based on how many highly ranked sites link to you.
Links are important, quality over volume certainly. But Google has admitted to using over 200 different variables when computing PR. Having a million links pointing to a single paragraph hub filled with rubbish won't result in high PR.
I prefer MozRank, I find it to be more accurate overall.

Just checked it on Alexa.com, and realized which (alleged) effect the Panda updates of Google has on traffic. Although I'm still happy with the traffic my Hubs have, are the foundations increasingly eroding. Are there any ideas to change this trend? http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/hubpages.com

Hey guys, are all of the hubs on hubpages capped at PR 3? I'm curious because I don't think I've ever seen a hub with a PR above 3. Are there any hubs that have a PR > 3? If so, could you provide some examples?

What do you do to increase traffic to your hubs and potentially increase AdSense earnings?

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.

Whew, Google's been coming thick and fast with the updates lately: killing paid blog link networks, Panda 3.4, Panda 3.5, Penguin, the glitch with parked domains, and now Panda 3.6 only 8 days after the last Panda. It generally takes a few weeks to collect enough data to be sure of a change in...
