What are you supposed to believe about page rank with all of the information floating around on the Internet telling you how to improve the rank of your site pages?
I have the perfect recommendation. Go straight to Google Webmaster Guidelines and read everything they offer on how to set up your blog pages for better ranking.
Google Explains How To Get Better Page Rank
Don’t take my advice or anyone else’s. Google tells you exactly what to do in order to get better ranking for all of your pages. Think about it. What better place to learn how to set up your page content than Google?!
Google tells you that relevancy is determined by over 200 factors, and one of them is “page rank” for a given page. What do you think Google is trying to tell you here about page rank and relevancy?
Before I get deep into this, let me say that Google gives each web page a rank (page rank or PR) from 0 to 10 based on many algorithms Google uses to judge web pages. The higher the rank, the more trusted the page.
Let’s think about this from Google’s stand point as far as trying to rank a web page, and from the logic of looking at the information that most blog pages offer for Google crawlers to determine page rank.
First, think about where a search starts when you are looking for information about a subject. A search begins with a keyword phrase entered into a Google search, right?
You pull up Google and type in a keyword phrase and expect to get the best possible answer in position one on page one for that keyword phrase you entered.
So, what does Google do in order to fill that number one spot? Google needs to search through the WWW and find the best possible site that offers you the best possible information for the keyword you entered.
How would Google know what the best possible site is to post first on page one for any particular keyword phrase you’ve entered into a Google search? How would they even know which site to place in the second position … or the third … or fourth?
Google basically tells you exactly what they do and how they rank sites for particular keywords, and if you have an analytical mind, you can figure out the rest of the “details” on your own after you read the information Google offers about optimizing your web pages.
When I say “details,” I mean everything you will learn from this site and the other sites that offer the tips on how to set up your blog pages for better ranking.
All of those other sites have taken the time to fill in the logical details about the relevancy factors that Google goes through in order to make sure you get the best information when you do a search.
I can only give you so much information about “on page” optimization here, and the other sites can only give you so much information.
You will need to read as much as you can and then make a determination of how to set up your pages for better rank.
There is a lot to learn about this “on page” optimization subject, and the more you learn, the better your understanding will be about what it takes to get better page rank in order to gain more traffic to your site.
If you plan on making money blogging, you will need to become a voracious reader on the topics of Internet marketing, SEO and making money blogging.
Making money blogging boils down to traffic to your blog. It’s a numbers game. The more traffic you get, the more sales you get.
How do you get the traffic? If you don’t pay for it, you will need to figure out how to improve the rank of your pages in order to make sure your site is on page one when people enter in certain keyword phrases that are relevant to your site and page content.
Page Rank Is Based On Incoming Links
Google tells you that page rank is based on the importance of the page based on incoming links from other pages. Google actually tells you in a number of words that your site needs incoming links from other sites in order to get a better page rank.
So, what does that tell you about incoming links? It tells you that you need to have incoming links from other high ranking pages to give your site pages high rank in order to get your web page in the number one position for a keyword phrase search.
Logically, the more incoming links your site gets, the better your site rank will be.
But, how does Google figure out how to give your site a better rank for certain keywords that people enter when searching for information, and how do those keywords and incoming links to your site give your web pages better rank and move your site up to page one on Google for those particular keyword searches? That’s quite a lot to digest if you’re new to this subject.
Let’s think about this … If someone enters in a keyword phrase on a Google search, they will be finding the best site in the number one position that Google thinks should be in that number one position for that particular keyword phrase entered into the search.
So, how does Google end up putting a site in the number one position on page one for the keyword phrase you searched? Well, according to most of the information you’ll read, the number one spot on page one has a lot to do with the amount of incoming keyword phrase textual links to that site.
So, if you searched for the keyword phrase “make money online” that would mean that the site in the number one position would probably have the most incoming textual links with the keyword phrase “make money online.”
If you are new to this information, this will be a lot to swallow. Hang in there.
Incoming Links Need To Have A Keyword Phrase
Think logically based on all of the information you will find and read on the internet about getting better ranked pages, and the only possible, logical answer to that question will come to you.
Getting on page one of Google has a lot to do with the keyword phrase of the incoming links to that site, and the page rank of the sites offering the keyword phrase links.
If a web page, on another site, offers a text link with a particular keyword phrase leading back to your site, it tells Google that another site is giving your site a trusted vote for that particular keyword phrase.
If you offered a blog about losing weight and another site offers a text link with the keyword phrase “lose weight now,” leading to your site, Google would give your site a trusted vote for that keyword phrase. The higher the rank on the other page offering the link, the better vote your site will get.
If a thousand other sites offered the same keyword phrase text link leading back to your site, Google would see your site as a well trusted site for that keyword phrase, and would more than likely move your site to page one on a Google search for the keyword phrase “lose weight now.” If all one thousand of those sites had a high page rank, you would probably dominate the number one spot on page one for the keyword phrase offered in the links, because Google would see your site as being more trusted by higher ranking sites.
Look at it like this … if the president of the united states gave you a good recommendation, do you think that would be better than a hundred average people offering you a recommendation? Of course it would be a lot better.
The president comes with a high rank and authority. That’s basically how the ranking system goes based on everything you will read about SEO and Internet marketing.
But there is a lot more to the ranking process than just having keyword phrase incoming links to your site.
That’s why I created this post to help you with on page optimization.
The President of the United States could give you a great recommendation, but you’ll still need to produce a decent resume. That would be your blog, it’s content and how well you have the “on page” optimization set up.
Another Question To Ask About Getting Better Page Rank
So, how would Google trust the other site with the keyword phrase text link leading to your site?
That’s the part that no one person can really answer accept the people who understand the Google algorithms. But, there is more logic to this answer.
Google goes through and judges each site based on many criteria, and then they give the pages in each site a rank from 0 to 10.
The higher the page rank, the more Google will trust that site and also the links leading out of that site into your site. Page rank of ten would probably be the president’s page.
Google clearly writes … each link leading to a page on your site from another site adds to your site’s page rank. Google won’t go into detail, so you will need to guess on that part.
How Do You Get Incoming Links To Help Your Page Rank?
So, how do you get incoming links from other sites? I’m not going into heavy detail about that in this particular post. For now, you will need to read a lot about getting links.
Type the keyword phrase “backlinks” in Google and see what you come up with for now.
There are also many Internet marketing programs that teach you everything you’ll need to know on how to get incoming links to your site to get better page and site rank, but you can’t trust most of them.
If you are new to Internet marketing and to all of this information, it will take a bit of time to digest everything you read. I’m speaking from experience. It takes a while to really get a grasp of this information.
That’s why I tell you to read what Google has to offer and also read everything you can get your eyes on.
When you read what Google has to offer and then you read everything else, all of this information will make perfect sense.
To answer the initial question in the title of how to get better page rank, your site needs incoming links from other trusted high ranking pages.
The more incoming links your site has from high ranking pages, the more Google will trust your site pages, and your site pages will ultimately get a better rank.
There is actually a lot more to getting better page rank … Your site needs to offer great content related to the keyword phrase incoming links. Your site pages also need to be optimized.
There are many factors involved in getting better page rank, which is why I encourage you to become an avid reader on the topic of “on page” search engine optimization. I can’t possibly cover everything in one post.
This post is getting a bit long and I think I’ve covered enough for you to digest for now.
