Is a Google page rank 3 good?

  1. Hello, I just want to know your opinions, my blog was created on June 2011, approximately 7 months, and I have a Google page rank 3. According to you, is it good for a blog of 7 months? Thank you...

    The blog I need help with is

  2. For 7 months, I would say yes, that is good. I know people that have been blogging for years and only have a 3.

  3. Oh ok...I always work with SEO when writing my content. I mean I always use good keywords in my posts and title as well as tags.

  4. It sounds like you are doing well with it.

  5. thank you

  6. You are welcome.

    How do you check your Google ranking?

  8. I went on some websites which give you your Google page rank. Type Google Page Rank on Google and search...

  9. phillypressbox

    Thanks. I've only been at it about a month so I probably don't have a ranking yet but it's good to know how to check. Definetly a work in progress.

    The Google sandbox debate arises when Google does not assign PageRank to a new website until after six (6) months. This is presumably to serve the purpose of giving new websites time to develop or disappear altogether. At about the 6 month mark those who have created and published frequently discover their blogs have a page rank of 2 or 3.

    These are the positive factors that Google’s algorithm takes into consideration when determining PageRank:

    • Keyword use in title tag
    • Global link popularity of the site
    • Anchor text of incoming links
    • Link popularity within the site
    • *Age of the site*

    These are the negative factors that Google’s algorithm takes into consideration when determining PageRank:

    • Server is often inaccessible to Googlebot
    • Content which is very similar or duplicate to existing content on the web
    • External links to low quality sites
    • excessive reciprocal linking to low quality and/or unrelated sites
    • Participation in link schemes or actively selling links
    • Duplicate meta tags on more pages

    Develop a blog strategy that effectively addresses the positive and negative factors for determination of PageRank . Make it part of your blog strategy to focus your attention on the following:

    • writing high quality unique content;
    • creating clean code and ensuring your site validates;
    • use keywords and tagging properly so the content can be found and indexed;
    • linking to exceptional content on authoritative sites with PageRank;
    • being careful not to link too link to frequently to sites with lower PageRank and/or to avoid reciprocal link exchanges with unrealted sites.

    *You shouldn’t link to any content unless it’s exceptional and related - this goes double when you’re in the 6 month Google sandbox. You earn Google’s trust by linking to authoritative sites with PageRank, and not to too many new sites.

  11. Thank you Timethief, I hope I will get a page rank of 5 at the end of year...

    You will have to improve your traffic flow and secure more backlinks to your content to achieve that level of popularity and page rank.
    Here are 25 basic steps to take to increase traffic to your blog:
    1. Structure a reader and search engine blog;
    2. In blogging content is king create unique, high quality content so publish fresh content frequently;
    3. Learn basic SEO so you can use keywords effectively and apply basic SEO to your headlines, blog and posts;
    Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a website or a web page in search engines via the “natural” or un-paid (“organic” or “algorithmic”) search results.
    4. Make your blog posts look professional;
    5. Create at least 4-6 pillar posts and continue to create pillar posts;
    Pillar posts are also referred to as flagship content. Pillar posts are comprehensive posts that offer great value to readers as the contents are timeless in nature. They define you as having authority in the niche you blog in.
    6. Select and link to appropriate anchor text;
    7. Leave meaningful comments on related blogs and encourage comments on your own blog;
    8. Develop relationships with other bloggers so you can build a blog readers’ community around your own blog;
    9. Support the blog centered communities on related blogs by commenting on them and promoting posts from them;
    10. Link to authoritative sources in your posts;
    11. Deep link to your earlier related posts in your new posts;
    12. Assign appropriate categories and tag your posts with care;
    13. Link to related authoritative blogs in your blogroll;
    14. Provide RSS feeds for subscribers;
    RSS (Rich Site Summary or really simple syndication) is a format for delivering regularly changing web content. Many news-related sites, weblogs and other online publishers syndicate their content as an RSS Feed to whoever wants it.
    15. Having a well designed theme is important, evaluate your theme for effectiveness, and if required, create a new header, make improvements or replace your theme and reduce page loading time;
    16. Avoid cluttering your blog with widgets that lack reader value and slow page loading time;
    17. Buy your own domain and domain mapping;
    18. Verify your blog with the three big search engines.
    19. Get organized, use an online to do list by developing a blogging workflow;
    20. Join social networks and social media sites like Facebook and use Twitter, Friendfeed and other Free RSS directories to promote your blog posts;
    21. Promote your blog through social networks, online groups, and selected directories;
    22. Develop a social media time management strategy and stick to it;
    23. Submit your latest pillar article to a blog carnival;
    24. Become a guest blogger on sites with higher page rank than your own site.
    25. Create newsletters and/or ebooks for your subscribers.

    Best wishes with your blog. :)

  13. My site is 2
    WP is 9, lol

  14. @ourwweviews
    Provided you follow all the excellent advice available on this forum and elsewhere, your blog's page rank is bound to improve. :)

  15. @Timethief, thank you very much for your support...

  16. lol, I'll be a while :P

  17. By the way, can I know how many visitors you get per day and how many total visitors you have? Of course, if you don't mind all of you :D

    Comparing apples to oranges is a useless act. Unless blogs are in the same niche, publishing on the same topics and are the same age the apples to ornages compariosn provides no valuable dtat. Aside from that, we don't need to tell you what our traffic stats and page view stats are because we can all locate this information and other metrics like demographics on any site very easily.
    Example 1:
    Example 2:

  19. As runs advertising on our blogs and Staff embed the Quantcast sode required if you have any concerns about the accuracy of your stats on a free hosted blog then please contact Staff by using this link.

  20. oosp! edit: "sode " was meant to be "code"

  21. All stats are best estimates - before moving onto WordPress.COM I had three stats packages all running on the same server as my site and they would not agree with each other - how search engines and robots are filtered can have a great effect on the numbers - the important info is the trend - are you going up or down? Is traffic constant - I look at the different stats packages but only look at the trends not the exact numbers - trying to figure out why one package counts a few more or few less page views is in my opinion a total waste of effort.

  22. @auxclass
    Goo day to you. :)

    trying to figure out why one package counts a few more or few less page views is in my opinion a total waste of effort

    Agreed. No two or more stats programs will never agree. Each one of them decides how and what they will count as a hit. Some count page views and some count unique visitors. Therefore, use any of the stats counters only as a general guide to hits and I don't fret about stats at all.

    A stats application that isnot running on the same servers your blog is on is going to be susceptible to wild fluctuations. This is because all hits have to be transferred over the internet to different servers, and there are literally thousands of things that can go wrong between the server your blog is on and the server at the stats place. There's also the possibility that the software or hardware at the stats provider's site may be broken and not recording, or counting things as intended.

    The bottom line for bloggers is that we Volunteers can't address specific site stats issues. If we have any concerns about the accuracy of our stats we contact Staff.

  23. lol "Goo" was meant to be "Good" :D

  24. And a free SEO lesson.
    Chose your blog name precisely.
    Like Tesux, Blogger, etc.
    Don't chose the blog names as Ofpedia. It sounds like two words joined together and search engines will never suggest it when someone write "of" as a search term.
    So never use joined words when choosing your blog name.
    Another example to make it clear, my blog name is itspak and I should had to make it pakits to make it a single word.

  25. A further note on URL names - it all depends - my main site uses two words together with one of them being abbreviated and it works fine - another name that is used by a group I work with uses - works great - people can remember it and it rolls off the tong fine - we thought about shorter and decided to go with the longer version because we are in the Northwest part of the US and everyone is used to referring to the area as The Northwest so we just hitched a ride on the coat tails of almost 200 years of local custom.

    You DO want the name to be easy to remember and spell, not real obscure either. Another group I belong to had problems getting traffic as many members could not spell "yacht" (it's a club) and things are much nicer now that we use just a four letter abbreviation of the name.

    So it all depends and writing down a few versions and different names is good - try them out and see how they sound - how they look -

  26. My page ranking is 1... I thought it would be higher to be honest!

  27. I've been stuck on 4 for what seems like forever!

    Maybe "TeamOyeniyi" wasn't a good choice of URL, given no-one can spell or understands Oyeniyi, but I think it is WAY too late to change that now. :(

  28. Bloggers with PageRank 4 are considered as blogmasters in my neighborhood.
    I've been stuck with PageRank 3 for the last 6 months. And my Alexa Rank is falling fast.

  29. Nandobase, don't feel so bad about your Alexa rank - mine is falling too. I was around the 780,000 mark a couple of months ago and now I am down to just over 1 million. Very sad.

  30. @teamoyeniyi, yes.... Mine was around 700,000 ++ too a month ago. I guess we have more highly spirited blogger today than last month. lol...
