ratings can someone explain how a player can have more wins than losses and still have a low rating?

Because his rating also depends on the ratings of his opponents. (This is especially true of provisional ratings).

so if they play lower rated players all the time then their rating only increase a little at a time?

rating go to "your rating and profile" at the bottom of your screen and then klick on the ? beside your rating.

Actually, the GameKnot rating system is such, that if a player starts with a low rating, and the difference between wins and losses is very small (say less than 10), the rating is very close to the rating in the beginning (assuming the amount of games against very high and very low rated players is about equal)! More wins, I say!
