How To Increase Google PageRank?

Google Page Rank is a quantitative measurement by Google of the importance of a website. Google uses a complex equation to arrive at a value for the rank of a page. The higher the rank the better your site is visible among the billions of sites out there and better are chances of people finding your site..............


Google Page Rank is a number between 1 to 10 given to a web page which shows the importance of that page. It is also calculated for the whole site. Thus your blog is given a Page Rank and each page within your blog is also given a Rank.It depends on the number and quality of other pages linking to your page.

It is calculated by a complex equation which is beyond the scope of this blog. To see the pagerank download the Google Toolbar. You can also download a Firefox extension which shows the page rank in the bottom frame of the browser.


1. Increase your content and get it indexed and crawled by Google. The more original content and pages your site has, the higher will be the pagerank of your site. Update site as frequently as possible with quality content.

2 Put text navigation links to all your pages on the home page. This can be done in the New Blogger with the Archive widget using the Hierarchy module which provides titles of all your pages. In your blog Settings------>Archives------>Enable Post Pages----->Set to Yes and ------>Save Settings. This will give each post on your blog it's own page. Every time you create a post you will create a new page. Do not have page URLs with numbers and question marks (dynamically loaded pages).

3. Link to your home page from every page in your blog. This is done by making your blog header clickable to the home page.

4. Link to other pages in your blog from every other page. Put links to other pages with reference to context in your articles. Since each page does not exist in isolation from the rest of the blog. Any new visitor to your blog page may not have visited your previous pages to understand the full story. Provide links to them so that anyone can quickly visit them to understand more details of what you are talking about.

5. Put outgoing links on another page with a low page rank and not on your home page which has a higher rank. Putting them on your home page will bleed the higher page rank to other sites. For example on Blogger you can put your Blogroll on the post pages using Conditional tags.

6. If you want to put links on the home page yet prevent them from leaching your page rank you can put them in a link list widget and add the rel='nofollow' tag to the code. This will prevent Google spiders from following the links but your visitors can still click on them and visit the other sites. To do this login to Dashboard and click on Layout. Then click on Edit Html subtab of Template tab. First backup your template. Then put a check in Expand Widgets Template box atthetop and scroll down to following code in your Link List widget :

<li><a expr:href='' target='_blank'><></a></li>


<li><a expr:href='' rel='nofollow' target='_blank'><></a></li>

Save Template.

7. Get linked from high Page Rank sites/pages. If someone promises you a link make sure he/she is not using the above tricks and putting your link on an inside low page rank page. Also the page with your link should not be a link farm with plenty of links. One way links are better than reciprocal link exchanges. Links from sites with the same subject as your site are better than links from irrelevant sites.

8. Submit your sitemap to Google. Register your site at Google Webmaster Tools.

9. Free Tools/Graphics/Templates when distributed with a link to your site will give your site a higher Page Rank due to all those inbound links. A prime example is whose Page rank is 10 (highest) because of those links from counters installed in millions of blogs. Distributors of free Wordpress templates also have a high page rank. Submitting articles to article directories also has a similar effect.

10. Last but not the least : Let your money do the talking - Pay for inclusion in high page rank directories or purchase links on high page rank pages.


You can check your blog page rank and even the page rank of your individual posts. Just copy and paste your blog url or your post url at the boxes provided at any of the sites here and press Enter.
