The suffering of the Google PR System

Google search on the phone

There’s more than meets the eye there! Let’s examine these claims one by one and see if we can’t backing away from some of the obvious questions raised.

Google pr system is real?

I can hear you all yammering about how Google rules the universe and how your mum turned these powers and deceived them to become Next in line to be sold to Google. I brand you as a “newbie” because you have yet to visibly accumulate enough to call yourself “PR Elite”. Just ignore these flyers. These are the same people who claim to hold the “trust” of Google, yet only sell them to you for a hefty premium.

You’ve seen these flyers everywhere. They look something like:

  • “VIP Email System devised by Identified Company”.
  • How do they do this? Can’t they use keyword links?
  • What’s this about hidden links? Isn’t this in violation of google’s Webmaster Guidelines?

Now, here’s an interesting twist. A number of you may have heard of Google’s PageRank system. If you don’t, here’s what you’re going to be introduced to a little more often. I’ll explain what PageRank is and what it’s used for but then let you get the picture where it’s concerned. PageRank is a numerical value from 0 (no PR) to 10 (ten with the highest value) that is primarily used by Google when it comes to classifying websites. It is determined by a fairly extensive number of factors, but probably the most important are the number of links a site has and their relative importance.

Now, here’s where it gets a little technical. Google maintaining its algorithm uses and assessing the links pointing to your site and depending on their relevance as to their content and “value” to the reader. The goal then is to eliminate from its index those links that are irrelevant to your target query. Irrelevant links are links that have little to no link juice. For example, a link to your “dog toy” site from an animal care website has little to no value on Google.

What can you do to prevent this?  

As a general rule of thumb, make sure the URL Submission box is checked and that all boxes are marked with SC opt-in. If you’ve already created your SC profile, you’ll know that clicking the drop-down box takes you to the Main Menu where you can select each profile you have uploaded. Just select “Recover” and then choose the option to recover your data.

I’ve been using this tactic for about 6 months now and have not only seen a jump in my search engine rankings but have seen a decrease in my website advertising dollars going to these sites. When I say advertising dollars, I do NOT mean revenue. I mean clicks and individual advertisers.

The next hot question is why wait? I am used to waiting a long time before I post a new post. This blog post can be made a single HTML page if you desired, or made into a Section on your site. No matter how you create it, creating a keyword-relevant URL is the best way to increase your ranking. Why would you post a page that does not bring in traffic? Articles, on the other hand, are a whole different story.

Other options

There is another option that many bloggers use which is to use a free trial version of WordPress. By utilizing this free trial, you can test out whether your blog is search engine friendly and inside looking into a few of the other factors that can improve your ranking.

There is another option that you can do, and that is to utilize what is known as FAME. FAME is a format that is different than HTML but similar. Search engines oftentimes place a tag just underneath the title of your post where you can add your keywords to create a more meaningful title. You can find this by simply pressing “view” on your browser and then “source” on your web browser.
