Since readers have continued to be curious about Google Page Rank (GPR), I decided to take up an assignment for myself and write GPR Part II from my discoveries within the past few months.
Google Page Rank 1, 2, 3 What does it mean? Part II
First things first, before we get technical. One person we should recognize is the GPR founder. Google Page Rank was founded by Larry Page, one of the founders of the Google search engine. Not so shabby to have one of the hottest ranking system on the internet named after you, wouldn't you say? To make this article simple to read and identify with, I have it broken into three parts. From the first article and comments, I have repeatedly noted that there are three essential items to pay attention to in how Google Page Rank is determined: 1) links, 2) contents, 3) traffic.
Links: Natural building of links is established when an article you have written is promoted on another site. Someone found your subject, article written to be of quality, thereby placing a link to your site from their site. At which time turns the linking act into a “vote count.” It is called Inbound Links, (IBL) for technical. Like many things in life, voting is the way to get others' approval and attention. If you have many links to your site, then it must have meant that many people are looking, watching and interested in what you’re posting, and what you have to say. As a result, the linking act or voting count equates to your content being valued, or valuable. The more valuable your content is the higher it is rated. If you want to see who links to your site use this link in Google search: link: http://www.yourURL.com.
Content: What you post on your website matters. Your articles should represent your blog. What does that mean? If your blog is about fashion, don’t blog about prescription drugs. You can if you want, it just won’t be viewed as valuable content for your site. Next, believe it or not, the comments from other people matter, if you’re receiving quality comments relating to your article, it will count as quality word count and therefore enhancing your content. When you received comments like: “great, beautiful, nice job” all this does is adding a link to the commenter's site, or profile. It wouldn't do much for your content, or article, however, they are at least contributing to your traffic rank. It's your choice, me, I prefer not to publish a one, two word comment.
Traffic: this is probably the least important in GPR, as I have seen many higher page rank websites with lower Alexa traffic rank than the lower page rank sites. Although, if you cite back and analyze traffic, links, and quality contents they are all intertwined. For example, if you write an article of interest to the general public, people will come and read it, which increases your traffic, and if they really are genuinely great people, they will link to your article and not steal your work.
In sum, focus on your own site, provide quality content, and start building quality links. This is the best way to get a higher Google Page Rank. These are the key requirements to building higher Google Page Rank to which I have read and accumulated. Take away what you can.
