Google Page Rank Schedule | How to Benefit from it

Updated on August 5, 2010

If you know of a project due date, do you not schedule the rest of your time accordingly to make sure it’s either done on time or earlier? I know I do, So if you know when Google updates its pagerank for sites would you not plan accordingly.

Well, I am providing you with the Google page rank schedule so you can get a head start on all your SEO, Back linking, hub publishing, and refining sites and hubs that may need a little TLC

I am certain that if you are reading this page you are aware of website Page Rank (PR) and its importance. Google Page Rank assigns a number value to website and web pages. The factors that affect your rank are back links, website age, and popularity and these will change your position in the SERP’s (Search Engine Results Page).

Page rank is valued in a range from 0-10. A site with PR 0 is least important, spammy or poorly coded and the website with Page Rank closer 10 is the most relevant and important according to Google.

So if you have published hubs about the following subjects and would like me to link to them post the links in the comments, I will take the time to read your hub and asses whether it will add value to the readers of this hub. We want to add value to the readers of this and your pages

Increase your Google Page Rank with these informative Hubs about:

Keywords and key phrase selection (links to come from participation)

Original content creation

Backlinks and anchor text

SEO and onsite optimization

So here is the Google Page Rank Schedule

Google PageRank Update Schedule for 2010 –

Page Rank Value

What Google Page Rank Tool do you use?

I am glad I asked myself that question, As a benchmark I use one source consistently I use the Free Page Rank Checker at I am not affiliated with the site I just use the service and take it with a grain of salt. Personally to me there are too many variables that affect a site, to simply base my progress on one aspect would be foolish. As I mentioned a simple quarterly bench mark for hubs and web pages.

Does Google Page Rank really Matter?

Yet another great question. I will answer this with an example, when you are back linking through blog commenting, how do you decide to leave a comment?

 If you’re honest with yourself, you look at the sites page rank and if it’s a do-follow in the hopes that the “link juice” will pass off to your page.

Just by that little example you can see why page rank is important, I haven’t even mentioned the monetary gain you receive from increased traffic due to a high PR

Benefit from Google’s Page Rank Schedule

So, now that you have an additional resource to know when to expect changes in your traffic and page rank. You can use this schedule which I will update every year so you can bookmark it knowing that each time it will be up to date. So leave your links in the comment field and I will review them, it’s just a way to give back to the HP community!

      It's interesting to read all the random information and speculation about Google that is floating around on the web, best to take anything you read with a grain of salt.

      There is no such thing as Page Rank scheduled updates! Guys on Warrior forums would love to see this :)

      Google's own Matt Cutts clearly stated last week that there has been no Regular Google Update since Caffeine was implemented, there was a minor update recently that only affected inner pages. the next update might be in a week or in 3 months, no one knows, that is why we all expect the update, because it's not something scheduled!

      Google pr is important..I had quite a few hubs in the first 10 places in the google search, but without constant back linking and high pr, well the hubs dropped of the whole page of 100 searches...that's bad!!...secondly...if i have no pr within the first 2 months on a hub, then it doesn't get listed in google at all, meaning you can look for your own hub on the exact title that you gave it and google will find sweet blue nothing!!...only squeedo sites somehow gets away with being listed and highly ranked in google without high pr...

      Thanks for the update dates...I can surely use this information... :)

      Thanks, When your rank goes down the first thing I would look for are shady backlinks and duplicate content.

      I agree with you PC I even state "to base my progress on one(pr) aspect would be foolish" above. I do, however, think there is an advantage to being prepared for a change in PR as this may have both a positive or negative impact on your traffic or ranking.

      If it the change in ranking or traffic happens around this time you can go back and look at what links,content,changes you made to your site in the past three months and either increase what you did if it was positive or look back and fix problems.

      But Google has already flatly stated that PR is not of much importance today.
