I had heard rumors that Google was updating their infamous and somewhat mysterious PageRank which basically ranks every site on the web on a scale of 1-10 based upon the trust level of their content. The formula for how this is actually calculated is a type of Internet folklore and is not publicly disclosed. It’s a number that many websites take a lot of pride in and although it’s nothing to become obsessed with it’s a great indicator of your good(or bad) graces with the Internet gods over at Google.
Today as I was emailing one of our super-rad Hubbers, ProCW, he confirmed the PageRank updates and was the first to let me know that in the process HubPages had been bumped up from a PR5 to a PR6, which is really great news! Like I said, this is nothing to go completely crazy about, but it does show that Google is giving our content some extra love by bumping the trust level of our content up a notch.
