How to Increase Page Rank with Back Links

Updated on September 10, 2013

Looking to increase your page rank online? For those of you who still don't know what is a page rank, it's what Google measures to determine the importance of a page. Increasing page rank shouldn't be thought of as the placement ranking on search engines. All websites are given a page rank from 0-10. Currently, Google has 10 while Yahoo has 9. It is very possible to increase page rank to raise your reputation. The more incoming links to your site means your more apt to have a higher page rank.

Original Content helps Page Rank

To improve page rank, write quality content. Instead of writing a short 50 word paragraphs on coconut pills, you could also include the benefits of taking them orally. If you have more information, chances are more people will be flocking to your site instead of the #1 Google page that has only 2 paragraphs!

Be Unique and Informing

Make sure your article is informative. Sites are more likely to link to you if you have facts and not just opinions on your website. A unique way to increase page rank is by offering something that your competition doesn't have. Perhaps they didn't list any major news sources or something very important when it comes to their specific niche.

Contact other Bloggers

Look for other blogs or websites that allow you to do guest blogs. If you are wondering why people do guests blogs - it's to benefit each other. For example, you can increase page rank by writing a review on another person's website since you will get to post a link back to yours. You are gaining website traffic and back links this way. The blog owner of the site you guest blogged for is getting free content this way. If you really want to boost your website traffic, try writing for
websites that already have a high page rank.

Join Forums to Increase Page Rank!

An easier way instead of writing to blog owners is by hanging out in the forums. You can leave a link to your blog but make sure it is related to the discussion or you could be banned for spam. Increasing page rank doesn't mean spamming a bunch of links but instead have quality links. The search engines will value your page more.

Create Content on Hubpages

To increase page rank, post on sites like Squidoo, Hubpages, and Ehow. By placing your links on other high ranking websites you can create a quality back link. Let's say you write about about the hottest clothing styles trends on Squidoo - you'll want to place a link to your website on there. For more visitors, you could also add something like a "Read more" link along with a small summary.

Join blog networks

Blog networks can be great if you want to become a guest poster. Places such as My Blog Guest and Postrunner are wonderful examples. These sites allow you to write guest posts where you can place a link to your website. Try finding websites over PR1 to post on and soon you'll see your website move up a few places in the search engine.
