Why Google PageRank can’t still be ignored

Why Google PageRank can’t still be ignored

Even though Google continuously announces that Google PR is an internal website metric to gauge website quality it still remains one of the top reasons to influence your search engine results page ranks (SERP).

Yesterday there was the first and latest Google Page Rank update of the year 2012 (February 6th 2012) and most of the web masters reported a positive change in their website page ranks. Some of the web-masters did not experience any change in website page rank, even though the update was considered to be a major page rank update.

Why Google PR is still a vital metric? The major reason why website owners try hard for improving the website page rank is because PR contributes heavily to the search results algorithm.

How to improve website Google Page Rank? Google PR is like a reputation rank among the websites and on a scale of 0 to 10 anything above 1 or 2 is a decent rank and above 6 is considered to be high rank and reputation website.

 Even though back links from high PR websites is considered to be the best method to improve page rank, building quality content and traffic though search engines can drastically improve your website’s page rank.

My 2 months old latest technology blog has achieved a PR 3 in the short time with just 80 high quality articles a d is already receiving considerable search traffic. I would recommend concentrating on content more rather than spending time on link building to improve your page rank. You can check your website page rank online to understand where your website is placed as per Google standards.
