This is an “after the fact update”.
A contact mentioned that Google had updated Toolbar PageRank ratings last week.
I hadn’t noticed changes on my blog, but some of my content sites have done from PR3 to PR4. Fairly decent consider that they’re a little over 6 months old.
As mentioned in previous PageRank-related posts, take note that Toolbar PageRank is different from your Live PageRank which is registered at the datacenters and determine how frequently your site is indexed by the search engine spiders.
You can find out your Toolbar PageRank by installing the Google Toolbar.
But more effective than the Toolbar PR, which some would say is ‘old PR’ is the live PR, which can be accessed through the Live PR datacenter check.
Backlinks (one way links to your blog or website) determine PageRank.
If you haven’t already, the following are some of the methods to generate backlinks:
- Article Submissions
- Press Release Submissions
- Publishing RSS feeds
- Participating in blogging competitions
For new Internet Marketers, starting a blog might be an easier prospect.
But if you’d prefer to focus on site design and your concept, you can consider buying a high PR text link from a website in a related niche.
I’d recommend Text Link Ads.
