It’s Important But Not The End

November 18, 2009

PageRank is probably one of the first signs your site has landed. Established a user base, good content, and most importantly is legitimate. Unfortunately Google has done a bit of flip flopping. Page rank info has been removed from the web master tools. So why?

Well pagerank is not as important as first thought. While it’s important, it should not be the central focus when building a new site. So content > design > PR? Just another part of the battle between SEO experts and search engines as they attempt to capture more of the advertising revenue. While it still holds an important status page rank is no different.

So the bottom line is: build a good site and page rank, search ranking, and money will naturally follow. Don’t let the SEO game slow you down and remember PageRank is just a number.

Live PageRank for Firefox 3.0

June 25, 2008

If you’re reading this blog you know having a page rank tool built in to your browser (or having an add on or toolbar) is extremely useful. As well if you one of the many people who jumped on the Firefox 3.0 download bandwagon you probably noticed Live PageRank no longer works. Well someone’s gone ahead and finally released a compatible Firefox 3.0 add on and not from the original creator. Download it if you need it.

PageRank reshuffle?

April 30, 2008

Anyone else notice a shuffle in pagerank? I noticed a few of my blogs recently increased in pagerank. However, on the downside, some of them also went down. I thought the last Google PR run was back in February. That’s when I noticed a bunch of of my new sites getting ranked. I thought the general consensus was the this was done only twice a year, every 6 months. Traffic was mainly the factor that I noticed. The blogs getting more traffic benefited from a higher pagerank valuation. The few sites getting a downturn in traffic dropped. I guess I’ll keep an eye on it while I’m trying to get more visitors to my struggling sites.
