There Are Just 2 StepsTo Raising Your Page Rank

There was a marketing scam many years ago,that was touted as follows: Never get another speeding ticket! Never get a DUI! Never get caught stealing! Just send $9.00 to the following address. Then in a envelope the customer would receive an note reading..."Obey The Law"! That is the kind of disappointment I felt reading Mark Knowles Hub, "How I Got My Hub to Google's front Page", where he explained, how do you do a search engine optimization? Write a good webpage! Mark Knowles explains in great detail how much text, pictures and You Tube clips you need to have a "good webpage." The search engine, whether it is Bing or Google or another, determines which webpage is closest and best to the related search. The great news is any hub you have can be over hauled or tweaked to meet this criteria! Having plenty of text and pictures and video clips, as well as, links to other related hubs increases your click thru rates! This not only makes you more money, but is a major consideration in page rank!

The second thing that will raise your webpage rank is joining Social Net Working Sites. Think about it, if you have two webpages that are both pretty much the same, only one belongs to 3 social networking sites, that is the one you choose because you get triple the exposer with every click of the mouse! Some of these sites are Digg, Reddit ,Stumble upon and many others. The more sites you post your webpages to, the stronger your page rank will be!

Beginner's luck

My very first hub" Let A Cat Adopt You" landed on the Google first page 1-1,660,000 and that was before I joined any Social Networking sites. I thought at the time, "this internet thing is a piece of cake!" After that however, getting page rank just wasn't happening! I was the internet's version of the 90 lb.weakling, that is until I signed up for Reddit and then Digg! I got a tremendous amount of traffic from Reddit for about 2 weeks after I posted my webpages (hubs) there! The web traffic from Digg wasn't nearly as impressive, but then a curious thing started happening! One by one my webpages started hitting the top rank Google page and then started moving up the page! Of top ten searches on Bing the over whelming number are listed through Digg!

Why I'm Big On Digg

Joining and posting your webpages (hubs) on social networking sites raises your page rank by creating back links to your site, but in the case of Bing, Digg actually delivers your webpage to the search engine! A perfect example is "3 good reasons to fire your lawn care service" 1-3,600,000 as of today on Bing, no where to be found on Google! It was submitted by Digg! As I do Bing searches of my hubs on Bing I find the the vast majority are ranked on the first page for one reason and one reason only, it is because it was submitted through Digg! So forget all that smack you've heard about Reddit is better Blah Blah Blah! When Reddit or any other Social Net working site starts actually delivering my hubs to a first page search engine, they'll have my full undivided attention, but until then I continue to be big on Digg!

Why I Wrote This Hub

To tell the truth I am an internet illiterate! I have trouble with the most basic of tasks. What I am demonstrating in this hub is that virtually anyone with a little hard work, can write a decent hub and get a good search rank on a search engine! While I can't guarantee you a listing in the top 10 of a search engine I can assure you that your rank will improve as well as your hub scores. More important you will make more money! So read Mark Knowle's hub, sign up for Social networking sites ( Digg is a good start ) and when your rank goes through the roof, don't forget ( as the Bp Exec put it) the little people! I'd love to hear your success stories!

You have some good insight, Nifty. My traffic increased when I got on some of the social sites, too. Good advice!

Thanks judydianne for posting! I found that a combination of revamping my hubs & posting on social networking sites had an immediate and drastic change in my page rank!

Digg definitely has a lot of clout especially with non Google search engines like Bing. With that said Digg still raises your ranking at Google. Thanks habee for posting!

I use Digg for my hubs as well as some of my followers. However, I have to admit that Mark Knowles' Google page rank hub, and a couple of others is what I base my hubs on now. Since making those changes, I have page one rights on several hubs. :)

Great article nifty! I'm rating up and Digging for ya! :)

Thanks Money Glitch, For your post! I noticed that on Bing, just about all my front page ranks are through Digg! Hey, linking to some of the ranking hubbers doesn't hurt either!

I'll have to look into Digg. Thanks! Linking to good hubbers has been helping me and I plan to continue doing that. We can all help one another in that respect.

Submitting you hubs to social net working sites will increase you traffic & page rank, Digg is one of the best at submitting your hub to the search engine for first page rank! Thanks for your post Peggy W!

Nifty,

Thanks for this great post! My problem is that I never bookmark other than mine web pages and web sites, as it was suggested in this video. Not sure if that's a problem.

nifty@50 6 years ago Author

Thanks rocco071 for posting! On certain search engines like Bing, Digg has more pull than hub pages! So bookmarking your hubs to Digg will increase your overall page rank. Start with the bigs :Digg, Reddit, and Stumble Upon,it will also increase your traffic!

Great work - I will have to find you on Digg. I use SU, Mixx and Digg primarily, with other social networking links from YouTube, Flickr, Current, etc.

nifty@50 6 years ago Author

Thanks stephhicks68 for your post! I will try some of the social networking sites you have mentioned! I have found that certain sites like Propeller will not accept urls from hub pages but if you submit them with the Digg url they will accept them! Have you had similar experiences?

I think that Digg & Reddit are the two bigs! You will notice a lot of traffic after posting all of you hubs to Reddit, but you page rank will greatly increase in a short time with Digg! Thanks 4Foodsafety, for you post!

I totally agree, funny thing is I am recently discovering this on my own, in the midst of intending to read your hub because it is always linked from one of mine, talk about reinventing the wheel.

Damn good hub. Gets a vote and a like from home.

Thanks for your post Vizfact! I appreciate all the links I can get! I don't understand why everyone, even the users of Digg are either down on it or have very little loyalty towards it, just the opposite at Reddit!

Great info! Off to join digg and post some links!

ok, so when you 'digg' something, does it show up only to your digg followers? or is it just the fact you'v 'dug' something and created the link/backlink that does the trick ?


nifty@50 profile image

nifty@50 6 years ago Author

Every time someone clicks on a hub that is posted on Digg, Reddit or stumbleupon it is as though they just came to hub pages directly and clicked on your hubs. It doesn't matter how they rate it at those sites you still receive the traffic. Like at hub pages they can rate your hub up or down at your page. Thanks bigprotrusion for your post!

Social bookmarking is really pervading cyberspace, and with apostles like you Nifty, it can only get better. You did not answer this question a person asked you here. He asked if a person post a link to digg, will it appear to every one or just to you and maybe your friends?" the answer is if a person conducts a search on the particular keywords phrase, and if the search bots crawl sites like digg, and your hub happens to be the most relevant on that search term: it then delivers it on its SERP and if your hub for example catches his fancy, he'll click through. Thanks Nifty as you educate us more on social networks.

Thanks chinemeremz for your kind words & post! I think that your explanation of social bookmarking answers fully the question asked by bigprotrusion! Thanks!
