I have seen many articles about how to increase pagerank and i must say that some of them are completely wrong or even useless.I took my time to write hopefully, a complete article about what is pagerank and how to improve it.Let’s face it this kind of articles never gets old.
What is pagerank?
PageRank is one of numerous methods Google use to determine a page’s relevance or importance.Pagerank is based on inbound links not on the number of them but on their quality and relevance.
Some things you should know about pagerank:
Content updates doesn’t increase pagerank,content is not part of pagerank calculation.
Link exchanges count much less than one way links.
Sub-directories don’t necessarily have a lower Page Rank that root-directories but in most cases they do.
Links marked with rel=nofollow will not pass pagerank.You can see what nofollow and dofollow means in my next article.
A high pagerank doesn’t mean high search engine ranking,most people think that.
Multiple outbound links from the same page cost as much as a single one.
Pagerank flows within a site,so when new pages are added one or more existing pages will suffer a pagerank loss.
Meta Tags don’t improve pagerank.
