Google Page Rank Updates – Patience is Required
So you gone to all the hard work of creating a great site with targeted keywords, unique content and even worked on getting some quality backlinks, but still your Google Page Rank hasn’t changed.
Well the reason for this is that google doesn’t update the published Page Rank (accessible by all the tools) very regularly – In fact only every 2 or 3 months. That’s not to say that the actual page rank (not divulged) is still not used to place your site on the correct page in the search results – I believe it is.
There is a concept called Projected Page Rank, and there is a website that has a tool to attempt to create this. How accurate is it? Well from what I can tell in some cases it can be, in others it’s not.
Here is the site to try out :
Note – for this tools to work you need a minumum of 100 backlinks to start – so not so good for those startup sites.
Patience is required for any backlink tactics – especially to get page rank updates.
My next challenge is to find a tool that tells us what page our site sits on in a Google search. So far I’ve found a few that claim to gather this but none have worked yet. I might even create one myself. Wouldn’t it be nice for Google to give us some easier to read statistics? Google used to (not after December 2006) provide a Google API Key that allowed some more interrogation of your search rankings. The API Key went along with the now obsolete Google Search API.
