Google Page Rank Update: August 2012

Google Page Rank Update AugustGoogle Page Rank is measured on a scale of 1 to 10 and 10 being the highest rank. There are many factors which Google takes into considered to decide a website’s PageRank. There will be no particular date when Google updates its PR, but a Page Rank update is usually rolled out in 3-4 months time.

A good PageRank is a sign that your site is being crawled and indexed well (in most cases) by the giant search engine, Google.

Today, on August 2nd 2012, Google has updated the page ranks of several websites including ours. 9to5Blogger, which started on May 29th 2012 has got a Page Rank 2.

The last PR update has happened in May 2012 before the launch of this blog and it is happy that we got a PR of 2.

What Brought 9to5Blogger, a Page Rank of 2?

  1. The main thing I made sure when starting this blog was to update this blog regularly with useful content and till date, we’ve written 39 articles which are mainly useful for beginners.
  2. The next thing was I interlinked all the articles with one or another (wherever appropriate) manually so that it will be easy for the search engine bots to crawl our entire site.
  3. Made all the category and tag pages noindex, follow so that duplicate copies don’t get indexed in search engines.
  4. Made a guest post on ShoutMeLoud, which is a PR 4 blog. It brought a decent traffic to our blog.
  5. Last, but the most important task of all was that I commented on several dofollow and nofollow comment enabled websites through which I got traffic as well as link juice.

All the above factors have contributed a lot for the increas in our page rank. Of-course, these are not the only factors that contribute to a good page rank, but are sufficient enough to get a decent PR.

Another interesting thing was that our Alexa Rank is also increasing day by day. Now, it came under 5 lakshs bracket.

  1. Congrats for pr2..But seem this Google update is for some website as my all website are still having same pr, no drop or no increase in ranking so can you please put your views on this

    • You might’ve got a good PR this time but your PR has been distributed among your internal pages. Of-course, it is a good strategy though…Keep doing the same off-page optimization and you’ll surely get high PR next time…All the best

  2. Wow, marvelous blog format! How long have you ever been running a blog for?
    you make blogging look easy. The overall glance
    of your site is excellent, let alone the content material!

  3. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of
    any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  4. I didn’t know that a guest post to ShoutMeLoud will help your site to have big changes in your rankings. Is that really good to consider?

  5. To be honest alexa ranking is not very important these days. The only thing that matters is how much traffic are you able to generate from search engines. But none the less very good tutorial πŸ™‚
