Hubpages

Written by The Shops at 24Seven on Wednesday, January 14, 2009

I've mentioned Hubpages here before, but wanted to stress to make it part of your business plan. Last week the Google Pagerank for Hubpages went up to a 6, which means Google will like your site more if it has a link to it from Hubpages.

If you're not familiar yet, Hubpages allows you to create a hub about any topic. So if your website is about planning a baby shower, you will want to create a hub about that topic. Most importantly, be sure to link back to your website on your hub. I suggest only linking back to your site once per hub as doing it excessively will probably get you banned by Hubpages.

    I just checked a few popular Hubpages and only found one or two with a PageRank of 3. Are you really finding individual Hubpages with a PR of 6?. That's what really counts, right, the individual Hubpages and what they can achieve?

    Shari,

    True. A link from a site that has a PR6 will hold more weight simply because that is an authority site. While, true, it's not the same as if your hub had the PR6, your link still will be given more juice then if it was a link on a site that had a homepage PR of 1.

    The reason this is true is that you could create a perfectly optimized page for say 'xyz product' on a weak site. Then create a page on hubpages or video on youtube for the same 'xyz product' and I guarantee you that even though all the pages have a PR0, the hubpage and youtube will outrank the page on the weak site every time. Why? Because more weight is given to those sites, because they are an authority.

    There is no reason that a link on those same pages wouldn't be given different weight as well.

    Further, because of the nature of how hubpages works, over time that page will most likely accumulate PR. Every hub has a related hubs section on the bottom right. It's a good strategy to create hubs related to hubs that have good PR so that you get a link to it in that related hubs section.

    Thank you! How does Hubpages compare with Squidoo? I thought Squidoo was higher ranked, but I may be mistaken.

    Darla,

    Squidoo is the same kind of site. I also recommend doing the same thing over there. One of the VPs at Hubpages has said that a link on a hub is 3x more powerful than a link on a Squidoo lens...not sure how true that is, but that's what they claim.

    I've blogged about Squidoo here:
