My Blog is pagerank 5? SEO experts please

  1. AllanWrites profile image59
    AllanWritesposted 6 years ago

    Wow, I don't know how...

    But my blog that I started a month ago is now pagerank 5.

    How is this possible?

    Isn't pagerank 5 quite notable?

    I just don't feel like I deserve that kind of ranking!

    What is my site worth?

    Should I keep it?

    (It's currently making me about $10 a day through affiliate programs and adsense)

      It can not be PR 5 in one month or will not sustain.

      Regardless what anyone may say.  Either they may put you down or lift you up.  Getting a PR5 on a site is amazing.  I don't care what anyone will say.  That means Google feels that you have great content.  Keep up the good work and continue pushing out great reviews with that personal touch.

      I have two such PR 5 blogs without not so good traffic. So, what I do is :

      Forget about Adsense and affiliate programs. Sell backlinks and reviews as if there is no tomorrow. Especially to UK websites about mobile phones, broadband sites etc.. They pay a lot of hot cash in pounds to paypal smile

    I'm sorry I find it hard to believe a one month old Blog is a PR5. I tend to think your making a mistake somehow when looking up the Page Rank. Your probably seeing the PR for the root domain and not your actual blog is my bet.

    Ok I take that back, your talking about new-electronics.net, right?
    That is a PR5, well done! PR5 is great, but I do still find it hard to believe you achieved this so quickly even as I'm seeing it!

    IF its not a fluke that goes away tommorw then yes your domain just gained some value, probably quite a lot to some buyers who value PR. I would be getting hooked up with some advertisers that pay based upon PR and Alexa rank.

    I know of some advertisers that would pay very well for text links on your pages.

    I would keep it and develop it more. $10 a day is great for such a short period of time.

    I remember you posting about your two new domains here before. If you remember new-electronics.net was the one I liked the best.

    EDIT - After looking at Google's Info On New Electronics and clicking on "Link To" and not seeing one external link that is important enough for Google to show it I tend to think its a fluke. Yahoo's Site Explorer's data only backs this up more. Sorry but I just don't expect this PR 5 to last very long.

    Google's Webmaster Tools would show you as the owner much more information about who is linking to your site.

    1. AllanWrites profile image59
      AllanWritesposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I use Google Webmaster Tools actually!

      I think a lot of pagerank is based off of the actual material on the site and isn't as dependent on backlinks anymore

      How else can you explain PR5 without a solid set of backlinks whatsoever?

      I also have several subpages that are PR4 (about 7)

      1. Peter Hoggan profile image84
        Peter Hogganposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        PageRank has nothing to do with on page factors and toolbar PR is wildly inaccurate. That said you have at least one PR5 backlink and a few more from HubPages, redgage and others, thats where your PR is coming from.

        You will often find PageRank on pages that are not indexed, how can that have anything to do with on page factors?

    First of all, congrats buddy, this is really awesome. Please do not take it in a wrong way but there are some rumors that claims google is not giving much importance about pagerank anymore. But i am not sure of course. Because i have one pagerank 3 which i really work to make it better and another one which i really do not care much but it is also pr2. It is a bit complicated i know:)

    Pagerank doesn't mean a whole lot anymore, just a single factor that goes along with many others in a complex ranking system. Focus on increasing your content and building your earnings and the rest will likely come along with it. I've seen pages with great PR that don't earn a thing.

    What can I say, Google must love Affiliate websites overly promoting Amazon products with very lol

    I only looked at your homepage, but that was enough to see every post had a a link to Amazon or some other affiliate program for something or other (not that there is anything wrong with that)...

    Oh and I assume you're not exactly the most knowledgeable when it comes to WordPress, HTML or PHP because of the link in the bottom left of your page. I assume that is nothing to do with you?

    I put a plugin on my blog recently which inserted some dumb links just like that. Easily corrected though ;o)

    cabinetkingsposted 6 years ago

    That's very impressive and as someone else said before, you don't have a lot of links according to Yahoo Site Explorer and other backlink checking tools and it will probably go away soon. My friend had a similar issue with a high PR and no explainable reason why, and the PR went away after a huge PR update from Google. On another note, you probably shouldn't have new-electronics and newestelectronics with the same exact contact. You are going to get a duplicate content penalties from Google and it is going to be hard to rank for any search terms (not really sure if you are really trying to with that title tag). Send me a message if you have any questions about SEO send me a message. I basically live my life doing SEO for various industries.

Also I wonder if you're getting alot of traffic in the short space of time that the sites been up. Anyway whatever the reasons that's a great achievement.

    jonburgessposted 6 years ago

    Here is my theory on Blogs starting out high, I've done it a few times too. Google spiders walk around the internet, checking things out and minding their own business.  Then BAM, they run into a site that is built out, has lots of links, and they freak out a bit. The  check it out, and give you the benefit of the doubt.  I personally think they may be giving you a helping hand.

    5 is great.  The problem is, it will probably slide.  I tell my clients their goal should be a 6, and you have to have quite a bit of info, and on my estimation about 2,500 inbound links.  My site floats between a 5 and 6.

    To OP, PR5 is pretty nice, hope is stays up for you.  With it being a new domain though it might be possible that you have 'inherited' the page rank from the previous owner.

    Keep up the backlinks and you might be able to maintain it though smile

    I hate to burst your bubble but I noticed you're talking about it on the site too now so feel its worth resurrecting this thread.

    but I really cant see this lasting with less than 10 links.

    http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=link%3 … teexplorer

    we had a friend's 2 week old site do the same thing back here

    http://www.seoibiza.com/blog/2008/05/01 … nk-update/

    it lasted until the next main toolbar export, 4 months or so when it went to PR1.

    I would personally be inclined to tone it down a bit on the site until you know its here to stay.

    hopefully im wrong and it's real, but I fear probably not. 

    good luck anyway, as others have said ultimately toolbar PR doesnt mean much anymore, for quite a while now.

    Well done, but the domain itself has been owned before.  It's been running in some form or another since 2008.... although a PR5 on any domain is to be admired/congratulated, the domain itself has history.... so that might be one other small part of the story.

      Ah - that would explain it, though Google does give PR based on a number of other factors.

      Having an aged domain is a smart purchase, for SEO purposes - having backlinks and some authority, etc., it's what WP Mage is all about, and other programs like it.

      1. thisisoli profile image72

        Domain age has nothing directly to do with PR, PR is a numerical value based solely on links and outbound links.

          Neil Ashworthposted 5 years ago in reply to this

          True. Although an older domain will often gather backlinks naturally and page rank along with it from the right neighbourhood of course. The site new-electronics.net has a number of good backlinks which are well established but is also trusted by Google due to age and content - either current or previous and this has resulted in a PR5. Well done whoever got it there!

          The moral of the story.. buy aged domains!

    Older domains have history which search engines can use to measure trust. PR is a measure of link popularity. Both are used in some way to calculate search engine rankings. However, both of these metrics are completely independent, domain age does not contribute to PageRank.

    It is showing no pagerank at all when I click on the original authors link?

    Either way I would concentrate on getting more exposure by getting listed in top search engines for search terms. Although pagerank is nice to have, if you are not listed for search term then it is pretty much useless.

    Once you get listed for search terms aka keywords then pr plays a big role in retaining those listing.

    For example...If your competition has a lower pagerank than you for a search term it will mean it is unlikely they will bump you if you applied similar seo techniques.

  36. sidpoudyal profile image60
    sidpoudyalposted 6 years ago

    For all those that don't believe that his site is pr 5, believe it. Its true and its still holding up there. Now keep in mind that pagerank is constantly changing even though the toolbar is only updated a few times per year. Essentially, your site could be pr 5 in google's eyes "instantly", however, the toolbar will not reflect this until google updates those values for us all to see.

    Also, it could go in the opposite direction, your site could be pr 6 as of the last update but if you have abandoned your site, changed the permalinks or made some other drastic changes your site may only be a pr 1 in google's eyes even if the toolbar still shows 6.

    I consider myself an seo expert and plan to come out with some quality hubs on seo, article marketing and keyword research. Let me know via the "ask me feature" if there is anything specific anyone would like to know about. Late.

      I'm sure there are many people on this site who know far more about SEO than yourself. Many of the top hubbers have been online since the 90s and have their own webpages and make thousands of dollars a month in some cases.

      In regards to your hub - if you know so much about SEO why is the hub so 'all over the place'. And also... "keyword stuffing" has been known as a failure for quite a while now.

        sidpoudyalposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Ah ah, oooooohhh! The burn! A little harsh there don't you think?

        I never meant to imply that I know more than anyone else here about SEO. Actually, I am very surprised at your reply to my post. I don't have anything against you or any other hubber and in fact I LIKE you! I had read a couple of your hubs even before reading this reply here, loved the one about smells and I started smelling EVERYTHING (mmmm ripening mangoes smell like flowers) because of it!

        I hope you don't think ill of me because I was hoping on writing hubs about SEO. Really, it was just a heads up. Also, even if already know about the ineffectiveness of keyword stuff I am sure there are tons of people who do not, even here at HubPages. I checked out ten hubs on SEO and here are four that all talk about how search engines look at keyword density when determining your position. Of course, there is tons of good info in there but I am just saying that not everyone knows as much as you do.

        This one is fairly new I think (can't be positive) - http://hubpages.com/hub/All-About-SEO-S … timization
        Here is a highly rated hub with details on keyword density and hubbers comments - http://hubpages.com/hub/seo-keyword-research
        Another, albeit aged, but popular hub promoting keyword density - http://hubpages.com/hub/keywords-Tips-Tools
        This one also stresses the importance of keyword density, its fairly new as well - http://hubpages.com/hub/the-difference- … e-articles

        I want to add that I don't think negatively about these hubbers or anyone else who believes something about SEO that I do not or vice versa. I am sure that they got their information from someone or something that they trusted in and wished to pass on the great information to all, sharing is caring right?

        One more thing, I do not exactly know what you mean by my hub being "all over the place". I am pretty sure that I detailed how it was indexed along with a steady RISE in the SERPs. Maybe I misread, care to elaborate?

        I really hope neither you nor anyone else (but ESPECIALLY YOU) think bad about me because of anything I said or any hub I created. I am not out to "get" anyone else. I just wanted to be a part of this community. Hope we can be friends.

    To the OP, don't know how you got a PR of 5 but good for you and hope it stays there. However you could be making triple your income from adsense if you put those ads in the right place. Your missing out big time.

    1. Business Info profile image59
      Business Infoposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      well there's also a 301 redirect to the domain now that I didn't notice before, so maybe if that was a PR5 domain pre-redirect then this could stick.  otherwise the site just does not have enough links to it to justify this.

      to the OP, one easy way of telling whether it's likely to be there after the next PR toolbar export is whether it ranks like a PR5 or not?

      a genuine PR5 is a substantial amount of ranking power, you should be able to publish articles and burst into the top couple of pages for the target phrase relatively easily.

      I would also expect the site to be in the top couple of pages for the main words in the domain name.

      I'm sorry to say that to me it still looks like an erroneous reading .

    Like business info stated, the 301 redirect maybe part of your answer. I checked the site history and this domain is aged since 2008 so if you just purchased you may have gotten very lucky by inherating the previous owners PR. Please list all the plugins you are using with this site, I am sure every one here would like to learn how you accomplished this feat. Congrats...

    I love these types of posts because the experts come out and say "that's impossible" with confidence oozing from their replies.

    They then realize they can see it with their own eyes and then split into two main groups: "I still can't believe it, but kudos" and "It won't last..."

    No doubt your site has "bucked" the trend, but it proves that no matter how smart we all are, Google still knows more than us. 

    Maybe back in the day I would have been in the "you're fibbing" camp, but I've been humbled too many times by the Google gods that when I read your post, the first thought I had was, "how can I exchange links with this guy"

    Congrats on the PR, I personally don't think it will last, not because Google will realize it's made a mistake, but because I think this "Internet" thing is a fad and Al Gore is going to turn it off with the next few weeks.

    Congrats on a great site and I think it deserves a GPR 5. I've worked my butt of on my blog and it's only got a PageRank of 3.

    But as someone commented before, PageRank is not all that important any more. It does mean that Google values highly the content of your site, but it doesn't mean that it's enough to get your significant search engine traffic. Your Alexa ranking of over 1 million proofs this. Possibly you need more high authority, related sites linking back to yours. The number and quality of inbound links are very important for how "reputable" your site will be viewed by the search engines, which, together with your strong PageRank should boost your search engine traffic.
