SEO: How to Improve Your Google Page Rank
Here are some tips for increasing your page rank in Google and other search engines. Read what Google considers for page ranking in search results and take necessary steps. This will help you to see your pages in first or second page of Google search results, for specific keywords to related subjects.
Many of my Hubpages are appearing on first page of Google search results, and some on number one or two position. It is easy to do, just read the tips and follow them.
Please note that I have mentioned only some of the important factors for higher page ranking.
1. Keyword in the URL
There must be the keyword or keywords to related topic in the URL of the page. This is the most important thing as search engines give top priority to this factor..
Example: The URL of this page is http://jainismus.hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Increase-Your-Google-Page-Rank. The last part of this URL is How-to-Increase-Your-Google-Page-Rank. People searching for article on increasing page rank will surely find this page in search results.
2. Keyword in the Page Title
The title of the page is another important thing to consider. You should choose a perfect title for the page, exactly relating to the subject of the page. Search engines give priority to this factor.
Example: Title of this page is How to Imrove Your Google Page Rank. This is the perfect title for this page as it is related to the subject in the page.
3. Key Words in the Text
Within the article, you should put all important keywords. Such keywords can be in form of section titles.
Example: See the titles I have used before every section in this article.
This is an important factor which search engines consider for page ranking.
4. Backlinks from other Websites
What is a backlink? It is nothing but incoming links to your pages from other websites. More the backlinks your website has, you get more visitors. Further, it also helps to increase the page rank in search results. Double Benefits!
Your website will get higher position in search results if it is back linked by a website which has a higher page rank. (See diagram at the end of this Hub under the title Baklinks and Page Rank Explained).

5. Internal Linking
Linking your pages on related subjects within your website also helps you to increase the page rank. Such links are considered as backlinks by search engines.
6. Keyword as Tags
You should use keywords as tags in your HubPages and blogs etc. This helps the search engines to find your pages quickly. Perfect tags increase the page rank.
7. Keywords in Image File Names
Before uploading images to your Hubs, websites, blogs be sure that the image file name is related to it's subject. Do not use numbers as file names, but a perfect name of the subject.
Example: If the image is of a rainbow, use rainbow as the file name, do not name it as image No 123 etc.
As the images are shown in image search results, actually you get backlinks from them.
See following photo. My page is displayed on number one position in Google search results for the keyword Sanskrit facts.
8. Other Page Rank Factors
Google Search Engine considers about 200 factors for page ranking. I have given 8 most important factors above. Some other factors include:
Age of the site: Google Search Engine likes older sites. New pages on older sites are added faster.
Frequency of Updates: Updating your pages frequently sends search engine spiders to your website frequently.
Listing in Site Directories: It means backlinks from higher page rank websites.
9. Negative Factors
1. Text given in graphics, text in Java Script, dynamic pages, flash page, frames are not useful to increase page ranks, as such types of pages are not readable by search engine spiders.
2. High number of outgoing links decreases your page rank
3. Although facebook likes and sharing of your links send a lot of visitors to your pages, it is not useful to increase the page rank.
4. Link exchange does not help in page ranking.
Baklinks and Page Rank Explained
Below is the image explaining page rank by backlinks. Website B has many backlinks from lower page rank websites, and a backlink from higher page rank website C. Website E has many backlinks from lower page rank websites, but has no backlink from higher page rank website. Website C has just one backlink from higher page rank website B.
So you need backlinks from higher page rank websites to increase your page rank.
