Top 15 Killer Tips To Increase Page Rank!
Commenting is a very crucial process in generating a good Page Rank. In Blogging Community you must be very socially active. Some Blogs are Do-Follow, which can help you generate back links to your site by just commenting on their posts. Nowadays most blogs have CommentLuv Plugin installed on their site which automatically places a link to their last blog post at the end of their comment.

7. Social Bookmarking:

  5. Nice tips Saad, you’re 16 years old too young Blogger. I think it’s better time for you to start enter to the Blogging world. Have a nice day buddy.

    • Hi Ehsan..
      you are almost right why i am say almost because blogging is like alcohol – you can’t stop it once you start! So its effected on his study carrier.

  6. Guest posting, Internal linking and quality content i think the most important factors, never sacrifice your content quality just to have some kind of seo benefit.

  7. Nice post bro
    I am very unhappy with my current google page rank
    I hope my page rank will increase after following these tips :)

  8. I think Guest Posting is the best choice if you want to boost up your Pagerank, I’ve seen many bloggers who jumped from 0 to 3 or 4 just by Guest Posting. Bloggers should go for it. BTW nice article Saad :)

  9. Hi Saad,
    I think Social bookmarking creates only more instant visitors and i don’t think it helps to improve PR for feature.

  10. Romy Singh says:

    Hello Saad,

    Nice post. The one thing to keep in mind while building link from any site is that how many links are going out to from that site to other site or blogs. Because if the quantity of outgoing links are more from where you making link for your site will be not as good as if you are making a link from site which have very few outgoing links.

    You’ll get very high link juice and pr juice, if site have low number of out going links. So keep this in mind, always check how many outgoing links the site have from where you are making link for your site… :)

  11. Very useful and informative post. Thanks for sharing these nice tips with us. Definitely I’ll try to follow these and improve my PR.

  12. Hi Saad Asad, Great Tips bro. As i know Guest Blogging is the best and the main way to Increase PR and Blog Comments helps us to get good traffic. Thanks for such a nice tips bro.

  13. Getting listed in DMOZ is now a days luck and Yahoo Directory is paid directory. I like other points that you shared about PR.

    Ammar please checkout this tool: Free Online SEO Tool, it’ll help you to check PR, Alexa, number of backlinks, Google Last Crawl date and many other factors. Thanks.

  14. Google loves content and they like it freshly baked. Having fresh new content on your website or blog every now and then is the right way to show Google that your blog is active. It will also help you get a lot more traffic because people loves to see new things. On the other hand, posting everyday will help but is mostly ineffective and a hassle for your daily life. It will be better if you stick to a schedule to post your articles. That way you will be able to manage SEO and other things instead of focusing on content because content is only one of the factors for Page Rank and there are other things that you need to do like SEO and Social Media.

  15. Yes Rajesh I Totally Agree with you but that does not change the fact that it is an help in increasing pagerank

  16. John Ernest I completely agree with you.

  17. Thank You Everyone, As this was my first guest post I have taken all of your guys comments under consideration and will help me improve my writing.Thank You Very Much For the Support

    Follow the following steps 5 steps to increase google page ranking

  19. Saad you mention almost all useful point to follow if we properly follow these point then i hope in next google update we surely get decent page rank according to the work we done for our webiste or blog.

  20. Indian Hindu Baby says:

    Nice post, I will follow your techniques. I have one question. if we update the blog post with more content , which is already indexed by Google, will it get indexed again?

    I think the permalink update can create issues.

    pls throw some light on this topic.

    thanks in advance.


  21. Good tips Saad! After all, I still put guest posting in the first place being the best link building techniques as well as brand building. Google has been changing the algorithm for many times, either private or public, natural link is what we really need in the end.

  22. Satria Bertato says:

    I’m going to try your advice. This article is informative. Thank you.

  23. Backlinks and Good content are main thing to get high PR. Social sharing is also important. Nice article. Thanks for share.

  24. blogging tips says:

    nice post saad ….this is very useful … i had used many of the tips you mentioned and will use all the other tips which were not known to me… thanks alot dear..

  25. Chandan Sanwal says:

    Nice post Saad. if its your 1st guest post then you done a great job. It has all steps to do for PR. Not looks like 1st Guest post. Great Job:)

  26. Nice tips.
    I have one question though…
    Does commenting on the sites really increase your backlinks or it will only affect if it is a “do-follow” link?

  27. It’s great to see my fellow Pakistanis doing great stuff online. Keep it up Ammar and nice post Saad. One thing I want to add here is that always try to follow niche. Blogging on too many topics might leads to scattered keywords and be careful with your external links.
    Marketing is the key to a blog’s success. Indeed Google search traffic is the lifeline but for a healthy growing community you need to look beyond SEO and into SMO.
    Cheers. Have a look at my blog if you’re a tech lover.

  28. I 100% agree that content is a king. However 1 question Bother me a lot. My question here is how Google counts quality content as it is a subjective thing and not some thing quantitative like number of backlinks that can be counted by softwears? Do their employees examine the content themselves or any other tactics?

    • Well Adil . Content Quality is something that Google Has Learned with time . quality can be checked in many ways. for example it will compare the content with other website’s to check its uniqueness and will check if it has two many links that will weaken its quality and then if it has a unique title or not.

  29. Hmm. Nice to know about this. Thank Saad

  30. Nice artical on page rank.
    Pagerank according to some bloggers is an important factor determining the power of a blog.
    And I will definately follow your tips.

  31. Yes There Is. If the blog has comment luv plugin or any other sort of backlink giving plugin installed

  32. Kamran ul hassan says:

    Great Job Saad you post a good topic related to link building this strategy really work and give you the page rank fast to any website if they work with white hat seo.


  33. Useful tips Saad ! By the way I am using almost all these tips already and just want to say that all of these tips really works. They can help very much to newbies.

  34. Rohith VR says:

    Nice Tips! These are some of the useful tips that i am unaware of mostly- Tips under Increase Page Rank by Other Methods.Thanks for sharing these tips!

  35. Will you please send me links and describe the process for the 2nd point i.e Site Submitting. I never done it so please give some tutorials and links for them. Hope this will bring me a boost in audience on my blog.
    Else I am using all the tactics except guest posting. :P

  36. Google Stopped giving priority to Backlinks from Article Directories as they include lots of duplicate content and spun articles. Instead of Submitting posts to Article Directories, it is good to write high quality posts and submit to High PR blogs as guest post.

  37. hi Saad, nice and informative post in last pagerank update many new sites got higher ranking compare to old sites and i think traffic and quality also measure for pagerank algorithm.

  38. Nice post sir but i want to ask one thing how to submit my site in DMOZ because rejected many times to my site.

    • Well the best way to get approved by DMOZ is create good backlinks for your site and increase your page views :) they only approve websites or blogs above 60k monthly visitors so its not an easy task hope that answers your question :)

  39. Great post on this! I am really trying to increase my Google Page Rank and other stats for my website and will definitely try these tips. If anyone wants to check it out, please do and let me know of any other steps I can take to help raise the rank.

    Thanks so much!


  40. Thanks Saad. People also said that, domain with .edu and .gov will give you greater backlink and increase your google PR. Is that true?

  41. This was good guidance regarding page rank. I will try and implement this in my website.

  42. i don’t understand the backlinks para can you tell something more about it…

  43. Amazing Man, its an honor for me to visit your site first time. I am impressed. Looking forward.



  44. this is great but is there any new technique for the Google Penguin? or Panda?

    • All of the methods mentioned above our white hat so they should work with penguin and panda both as long as you are not using the wrong means :)

  45. Nice article. Any new info for Google’s Penguin update?

  46. Nice 1. I really need a good Google page rank.
    Hopefully it should works.

  47. Thanks for the tips.. hopefully to be able to increase my page rank soon..

  48. Django Josh Web Design says:

    Good tips, well explained. Its often a confusing topic, espeacailly when Google likes to change the way it ranks your sites every so often.

  49. Anyway to know when Google re-evaluate our website? As you said it re-evaluate our website around 3-4 times in a year.

    *Anyway, great tips Saad, better understanding on improving my page rank. :D

  50. 贵阳论坛 says:

    Nice post sir but i want to ask one thing how to submit my site in DMOZ because rejected many times to my site.

  51. Good details about google page rank . I was struggling to get google page rank and I think I got some details on this. Let me work and would share the feedback. Thanks

  52. A great read. Thanks for taking the time to post this very informative article :)

  53. Cool :D !!
    But not actually !! Cause i have seen Sites on wp are more struggling to get better Pg rank but the sites on Blogger get the thing in just three months of Blogging !!!!

  54. Thanks for your advices. I will try it, and I hope I can get a better Page Rank as soon as possible. Have a nice days… ^_^

  55. Great article here. All pretty obvious stuff, but we all lose track every now and then and posts like these help us to refocus our energy!

  56. SEO Sydney says:

    Hi Saad ,

    You are providing such nice information here and I will apply these tips on my site. Thank you so much for sharing with us

  57. Thanks for the info! I’m trying to raise my PR. I had a 4 then it went back down to a 3 so I’m trying to boost it again.

  58. Well having good PR feels better. But I dont think Google gives it more importance in its algorithm.
    As you said PR can be increased with high number of backlinks, almost true. I feel to rank better(SERP) we need better quality of links, may be just few.

  59. My blog is almost entirely about undiscovered YouTube talent (or people who haven’t figured out where they should be focusing their talents) so most of my posts consist of YouTube videos. It’s not easy getting the page rank up with that little to go by seeing as I can’t exactly guest blog or submit my blog to article hosts.

    Any ideas :D

  60. It is a good tips to increase page rank.
    I have been searching on how to increase my site to PR2. now it is PR1.
    Thank you.

  61. With comment luv you get two links – one in the name and one in the article title below. Google only lets you have one backlink per URL so which does Google choose? You would think Google would crawl the top link first and go down the page because seo techniques always say to make sure you do things in the first paragraph because Google sees this first. So, which link does Google see? is commentluv a waste of time other than people clicking and it driving traffic that way?

  62. Great article on increasing google page rank. Can you please what the difference between page rank and keyword ranking? When I check keyword ranking – many cases shows that yahoo and Bing has good ranking 4 to 5 but google did not given any rank. How does google do the ranking?

  63. Awesome tips. I’ve been trying to get my page rank to increase myself and I think I’ll try guest blogging soon. I have doubts though about link exchange. I heard websites are being penalized because of this.

  64. Is it possible for high quality content alone to drive the site’s page rank nowadays? It seems that a combination of all your tips is necessary. Thank you for sharing.

  65. hmm…my page rank is 0 but after this i will definitely work hard on my site for getting a Good pagerank…thnkss bro…….!!

  66. Good Tips! keep up the good work.

  67. Hi Saad,

    Nice post. Simple and easy to follow. So far I do blog commenting and guest blogging. I should take note for other tips as you mentioned above.

    Thanks my friend

  68. Hi Saad,

    I just launched my site today and must say your post has been of much value. Very easy to understand.


    Simon W

  69. These are really great ways to get high backlinks.You have shared so useful tips, thanks.

  70. Very helpful tips saad, Great Article & very clear explanation, Just check Yahoo Directory & Best Of The Web, these are paid directories.

  71. Thanks for sharing Valuable Ways for increasing google page rank. Me aggre your all Point coz Me also use this Tactics. I love blog commenting and Social Networking :)

  72. jomaraban says:

    I am really impressed with the way you write your articles. I also have my own blog
    href=””>blog but the pagerank is still 0. My articles are all original and unique but my page rank is still not increasing. I will try to follow all your suggestions and I hope it would work! :)

  73. Interesting post. I have seen a lot of sites with completely different PR. Some with 80 posts and a PR 2 whereas some with 20000 posts but still a PR2. Why is there such a huge range? is there any particular metric we can use to improve our PR?

    • Kevin actually the number of posts makes a very little difference in PR . i have also seen blogs with only 2 posts but there PR : 3 or Maybe more . PR depends on quality of the post . its possible that those 2 posts get more traffic then those 20000 posts because of there low quality . I Hope that answers your question . A good measure of website is Domain Authority :)

  74. Nice post mate. Concerning Jeremy’s comment, YouTube is a great way to increase PR. What I am currently doing is building up my you tube channel PR by posting comments on high PR videos in order to transfer their link juice to my channel, as all these links are do follow.

  75. HI nice Post Internal Linking And Youtube Videos In description Ad Site links is Also useful .

  76. Lots of good points here, there are a lot of ways to increase page rank, some are difficult to do like link building.

  77. Hi, your work is really great and also very informative for me because I am a new blogger. Thanks for the blog. Keep it up.

  78. greatly appreciate your post.i must use your tips to increase my blog page rank.thanks!

  79. DMOZ is not really supported anymore, so actually getting into it would be a challenge just on its own.

    But the other tips are pretty good to start with.

  80. Nice and informative article as all on this site, my page rank has dropped on this updation, i’m new blogger and want accent, so i’m going to follow all those points as much i can.
    thanks once again

  81. i would like to point, whatever directory you have suggested in your blog, is commercial and charges amount from $ 100-300, that means Google page rank will be improved after spending some money, but another way Google sys that we do not accept money to get your content at higher rank,
    indirectly this is contradiction for me, can you suggest some more sites that do it on free bases.

  82. nice post, so basically its about links to your site?

  83. Hi Saad Asad,
    I am agree with your points, specially I like your points that says guest posting and keep updating. Updating blog frequently our blog live in search engine and thus we are getting pagerank easily. Guest posting is link building method, I generally prefer blog commenting in link buliding method however sometimes I write guest post on some blogs.

    Great post, thanks for sharing!!

  84. Hi Saad,
    Nice article with lots of useful and beneficial tips.Is this possible to increase the page rank without generate the backlink (as like Directory,Article,SBM submission,Blog commenting etc.) ?I’m following a website backlinks last 1 year his backlink less then my site but still that website stable on second position on search engine .If this is possible so How.

    Thanks for sharing….

  85. Thank you for your tips. My page rank is non-existent, and I’m hoping to fix that soon.

  86. Hi thanks for sharing. My site has been up for almost 2 years and hasn’t increased its PR by a number. I think I’m gonna try guest posting.

  87. Thanks for sharing this tips..
    my page rank is still 0 and i hoping i can fix it soon.. :(
    i’ll try your tips, thanks anyway :D

  88. SEO Sydney says:

    It’s not about the luck, it’s all about mind and hardwork. These above tips are really handy for both novice & familiar seo person. Good information, thanks

  89. Jason Faughnan says:

    I think social media is now playing a much more important part of the whole PR and ranking system. But if you keep things simple like creating quality and engaging content, no spamming (or spammers on your site) and create yourself to be an authority in your niche then you will be well on the way to a good PR.

  90. Nice post saad bro, I am very unhappy with my current google page rank
    I hope my page rank will increase after following these tips

  91. Daniel Van Helden says:

    I have had my site up and running for about two months. I just got ranked with dmoz at a 2.5. I am guest blogging for another website too. In your opinion how am I doing for a site that is fairly new?

  92. I would like to add to those wonderful!!! tips that also how old a site is also matters. I think that google will increase pagerank to older web-sites and in “some way” seems that old websites still updating their content will take a “higher” pagerank than earlier websites. This factor -unfortunately- cannot be beaten.

  93. Nice tips, Some tips from my side : Don’t give outbound links to casino/gambling sites that have least reputation.

    Try to gain links from reputed websites. That’s it. :D

  94. Does having many no follow back links will decrease my page rank ? Currently I have many no Follow back links. Please someone answer my concerns

  95. Really, i’m amazing about this great article, i was looking for complete guide and i found all information here in one article. thanks again

  96. Thanks for the info! I didn’t realize they only update a few times per year. Now I understand why my number hasn’t changed at all!

  97. Lots of information to consider. I didn’t know the sites were only updated quarterly. Good thing to remember.

  98. Hakim Mahmud says:

    Nice tips, Some tips from my side and Don’t give outbound links to porn site or gambling sites that have least reputation.

  99. Awesome steps, but in how much time PR increases?
    Is there any time period or depends on content & backlinks

  100. No idea why people are so obsessed with increasing page rank, it’s useless.
    You can rank high with a low pr and visa versa

    • Why wouldn’t page rank matter? I’ve never seen a popular website rank a low pr.

      • PR Matters because if you have a high PR your website articles and posts get indexed more quickly then a website with low PR .PR matters because it can help you in making money of your blog most advertising companies prefer high PR blogs rather then Low PR

  101. vidushi kaushik says:

    And could you please para phrase what do you mean by creating multiple pages?? thanks in advance. :)

    • Vidushi By Creating multiple pages I mean that when ever you create a page in your website it creates an internal link to your website. So if you have lot of internal links then it would increase your backlinks in total which will eventually increase your Page Rank . Take of it as this way . more links in your site pointing to your site = Greater Chance of getting good PR :)

  102. i think writing original content will boost our page rank without enough back links,as per seo experiences back links just for article serp boosting. but we can see some website with high pr without enough content and less back link…now thanks for this tips

  103. I like the article, I follow most of the stuff there. I have a question Facebook now has rank for fan pages, some pages like Lady Gaga’s have a pagerank of 8 and all the way down to 0 So, If I get a lot of facebook likes using a site like the one here will it pass the page rank back to my site because of links I have put in place?

    • No Not Really Because Websites like Facebook don’t give do-follow back link so it doesn’t really matter much :) but it will still help you drive more traffic :)

  104. Great information on seo,

    You did not mention low obl, and it’s importance to commenting on blogs, it’s better to use sites that are well moderated, because that way it teaches us to read the whole article and make our comments useful.

    This way you should get a link back?


  105. Hi Saad, would you happen to know how often updates itself? And when you mentioned that Google actually updates its page rank analysis 3 to 4 times a year, this really explains why my SEO work seems to have no results all these past weeks. So Google only updates its page rank analysis just a few times a year. Ok, so perhaps my SEO backlinking work is going to have real results the next time around.. *fingers crossed.

  106. I have been blogging for more than a year now and looking for ways to increase my google page rank which is 1.

    I hope implementing some of your tips might help increasing my rank. Thanks!

  107. I have been blogging for about 2 years now and I’ve been looking for ways to increase my page rank which is 0.

    I hope implementing your tips might help increase my rank. Thanks!

  108. Finally an easy to read explanation & tip sheet for all things Page Rank. Kudos for this post. Definitely bookmarking & sharing with my fellow bloggers. Many thanks!

  110. Great. ive been doing some of these and maybe i still need to do more. my site is now PR 4

  111. I’m trying to build my own private blog network and came across this. It seems to me that it takes a whole lot of time in increasing your Page PR. So, what do people normally do? Buy sites from Flippa? Anyway, your article has been very helpful. Thanks, mate!

  112. quite helpful, learned a lot about PR, thanks, can you please let me know if u wrote something about how to submit articles in directories you mention?

  113. Chandan Kumar Rana says:

    Thanks for post.

  115. Nice article… is it even relevent today, my sites have a habit of losing there ranking every time theres a major update, but my traffic has increased… I link manually and write my own content, but still the ranking drops, has me wondering what am I missing….?

  116. Exceptional and useful PR increase Tips! Very clearly written by the young blogger.

    Am a newbie blogger and recently founded a self-host blog. Will follow these tips and try to get good PR through genuine ways which are specified here!

    Thanks for sharing the nice and needful information for the bloggers, keep writing!

  117. Good morning, I am new to the whole page rank thing. I Googled “how to improve your page rank” and came across your posting. I found it very informative. I wish I had your skills. Pretty darn smart for a 16 yr old! I am going to try some of your tips and keep you posted on the results. Thank you for putting this information out there for people like me. It seems like a never ending confusing process for the novice. I have a relatively new site that specializes in flexographic printing plates, which is a pretty niche and onscure market. Being that the site is less than 6 months old, I naturally I have “0” page rank. I do not want to get swallowed up into cyberspace’s “no mans land” Lets see what happens. Be well, thanks again Mike

  118. Hi Saad,
    Very nice & informative article. I thought Google updates page rank whenever they crawl a website, so your point about indicating that it happens 3-4 times an year is an eye-opener.

    Thanks for sharing.

  119. Hi Saad,

    Just found this and some good useful tips. Agree with Davids comment on Google PR, surprised. I assume the timings are random?



  120. Great tips about increasing page rank. I’m just getting back into the blogging world, and I’m currently researching the subject of page rank and how it relates to us as bloggers. I’ve learned that increasing page rank is a necessity to maintain the blog’s relevancy and build steady traffic. Nice post and awesome blog.

  121. Your tips are very well explained. You mentioned on #5 – to keep updating the website. Just not sure if pinging is a good idea after updating and making changes to the site! Anybody know if pinging is good or bad? Thanks.

    • Pinging, I think the author maybe referring to sitemaps.xml that search engines require on a regular basis. The sitemaps.xml contains a roadmap of website pages for bots to crawl through and index. A sitemap is usually generate by website authors.
      Pinging is refreshing data to and from a client & server. Kinda mostly related to multiplayer gaming, correct me if I’m wrong or not clear enough though.

  124. Hi Saad,

    Great tips you’ve shared here. What I do most is comment on other blogs. I think this is a great way to build relevant backlinks and also form connections with other bloggers in the same niche.

    I’ve also done a little bit of article marketing and building a couple of Web2.0 properties.

    Have a great day my friend.Cheers.

    Great Post Saad, I will surely follow these steps in order get Google Page Rank next time when it is updated. Thanks for sharing. keep up the good work.

  126. Does Google still gives any importance to PR for SERP? I have heard that PR is a negligible factor for SERP

  127. Avnish Gautam says:

    I always try get more high Pr back links from authority sites to increase Page rank of my blog. You have shared some more good points which worth to consider to improve page rank of my blog. Thanks.

  128. Nice first guest post, Saad.

    I think that leaving comments on other sites, guest posting, forums, social and internal linking along with some decent keyword research, can be quite useful..

    Not sure if article directory submissions are all that good these days, or at least some of the “once popular ‘ directories, that is….

  129. Such a Nice Post i think daily updating is the best way to increase pagerank and visitor and directory submition is not a good idea i try directory submition but i con’t get benefit from it

  130. Hey great post, i got a new blog and i want to increase its PR. so hoping that after doing all above things i will be able to get my first PR.

  131. Arafath says:

    Hi Asad,

    Most people used to write topics on increase page rank and many failed to explain the things in clear and easily understable manner. But I would never say your post is like such. Its clear to understand and more informative for bloggers.

  132. Good info ! Eagerly awaiting the next PR update from Google, hopefully my site is headed in the right direction…

  133. Nice condensed list. Would have been good to mention that Yahoo Directory and others are not free.

  134. You could think i am over stating in this comment, but i really loved this one. Perhaps this is the best post regarding page ranking i ever read. Thanks alot for your tips, i am more of a writer than an seo person, but i am learning seo and your post really helped me(an amateur) i would really appreciate if you reply my comment with some other extra tips for i am a noob into this unlike others here.

  135. Upendra Shrestha says:

    This is by far the best SEO and PR upgrade tutorial I’ve ever read. Way to go buddy. Now, I know how the PR works and also how I could increase PR of my site. I’m doing all of that.

  136. shafeeq says:

    I still put guest posting in the first place being the best link building techniques as well as brand building. Google has been changing the algorithm for many times, either private or public, natural link is what we really need in the end.

  137. You have changed my entire perception of LInkbuilding..i always avoided posts where there is no follow…but now..i am going to do it..but one question..does the number matters anymore?

  138. -_- commentluv refuses to work for me -_-

    I used to work at the beginning when I was setting my blog…No I don’t have an idea why is not getting the feeding…Do you have any advice?

  139. This was very helpful information. I was able to visit the directories and check if I had already submitted my website. I found some had not renewed their subscription.

  140. Thank you for providing some great tips on Google’s page rank update. However, I have already used most of the tips that you suggested here. But I still couldn’t find a way out to increase the page rank. I am just stuck in PR-03 for around a year. Can you write something about how many authority backlinks required to upgrade from PR-03 to PR-04?

    • Thanks Saad, you just pointed out one of my weakest issues. Well, I really have a few poor posts in my blog. So I think first of all I should rewrite those contents in a SEO friendly manner. Thanks again:)
      Have a nice day:)

      • I feel this blog /ayahuasca-healing.blogspot may have some issues underlying on the backend with links and such. Are these still being tracked even though the posts are located on the bottom? Just wondering. Thank you…

  141. Good post Ammar, Quality of the link matters than the quantity one simple point. I am not sure whether frequent posting increases the page rank and also do you have any idea that domain age relates anyway to page rank? I can see few 4 months old domain gets PR3-4.

  142. Just found your article and really appreciate all the tips. Thank you!

  143. Congrats Saad a person article a great matter in connection with link making this plan genuinely perform and provides you with the pagerank rapidly in order to almost any web page should they work with white-colored loath search engine optimisation.

  144. finetechcode says:

    Thanks for sharing this tips..
    my page rank is still 0 and i hoping i can fix it soon.. :(
    i’ll try your tips, thanks anyway :D

  145. Thanks for sharing. But lately, a high PR site often not sit at a good SERP. Especially after Penguin 2.0. Really strange update from Google

  146. This post is fantastic. However, I read many blog articles suggesting not to use CommentLuv as a way of getting backlinks. Their main argument being that most blogger felt annoyed that only people greedy to get backlinks would come and comment, therefore removing the plug-ins from their website. This would remove all backlinks gained this way… What is your take on this issue? How do you envision the future of CommentLuv?

  147. According to my knowledge there are 3 major factors to increase page rank. First one is high quality fresh and unique content on your blog or website. It is first and important factor to increase your blog page rank.

    Second factor is backlinks, where from you are getting backlinks for your blog or website. What is the value of website where from you are getting backlinks.

    Last one is Guest posting. Its true that guest posting play a very important role to increase page rank of your blog.

    I don’t care what are using others. I am using this one and it is really effective and useful for me.

  148. I know that Page Rank seems to be a dying metric, but it is certainly one that I enjoy working on. I think it is the challenge of it? Kind of like a quest or a mission :)

    I think your tips to increase page rank were right on the money although I had not considered web advertising. That is a new tip for me.

    Thank, Saad!

  149. Thank you for your post,I have had my website for almost 3 years now,i have tryed all the above and not a thing worked,do not waste your time and money!
    my page rank still 0 even though my alexa rank is which is very good and I get some google traffic but only thing that would work is by getting traffic,traffic = page rank.
    you can get traffic and page rank by having your banner or your do follow link on high pr sites,(relevant is better then not) .
    note: my site has over 1400 link from all over high pr site (free sites)!
    good luck.

  150. I really appreciate you taking your time out and giving us all this suggestion :) I really appreciate it :)

  151. I agree with Pillar Joe 200%. I think it is actually a waste in most cases. I have tried numerous times to run AdWords accounts on my few sites. It was my theory (hope) that if I were to drive traffic to my site through Adwords, then this may translate into more “credibility” to my organic growth rankings. It has never done anything except empty my pockets. I would stay away from AdWords unless you have deep pockets. My 2 cents

  152. I Would like to add one more point in this. The content and the outbound links. If your website is having quality content for readers and it is linked to other valuable website then your page will get a good search engine ranking. Google wants to help all so by helping the similar topic website by linking their website on your website will generate value for users. I would recommend if you have a blog and want to rank well on search engine use out bound linking strategy.


  153. I hope to improve my site and will implement your strategies. I think the key is unique contents and Providing value to visitors that will increase traffic and eventually page rank will follow.

    How many posts do you think you need to post daily?

  154. Hey very nice article! A few months ago I have set up a website, these days trying to get maximum out of SEO. You have also mentioned very nice techniques – this article has added much to my SEO knowledge for increasing page-rank. Hopefully in next few months I ill be able to get a handsome page-rank.

  155. I have all of these tactics, but it seems like Google is just not noticing all the efforts.
    My PR is stuck and for the last 6 months no increase or decrease on my PR, I also have resorted to reviews to boost my website. Reviews help but i have noticed that they only do for local searches.
    Any suggestions will be more than welcome, thank you.

  156. Ammar, your post is simple and easily understandable.Please keep it up.Kindly share the Google’s Penguin and Panda updates as a recent updates for Google Page Ranking algorithm.

  157. Tarpaulin Manufacturers says:

    I always look for page rank and alexa…but i am not getting visitors..i have done everything like social media classifieds directories and all.. i Just wanna ask how much is needed

  158. Edille Rosario says:

    I am also thinking how to increase PR of my site. I have done a lot including submitting my site to Social Bookmarking sites but still not getting high PR. Maybe I will try some of your other tips.

    Thanks BTW.

  159. Thanks so much for sharing this information. I am a new blogger and have been unsure how Page Rank worked. Now I have a better understanding of page rank and how to increase it. Thank you again :)

  160. I see a lot of people who just start a blog and immediately start running after getting a high PR, and in their attempts thy often unknowingly perform methods which actually bring their blog down instead of ranking them high. I believe, in beginning, everyone’s primary focus should be ‘Adding quality content on their blog’ and sharing with friends and on social media. Then come the next steps.

  161. Kyle Stevens says:

    Thanks a lot for the wonderful post. Sometime, I see many blogs which are many years old with no page rank, it really gets me wondering,therefore I would like to know how long it takes before Google Updates the page rank of a blog. Or is it totally upto their choice and descretion to give page rank to a blog.

  162. I find people targeting keywords that have a high volume without taking into consideration if these keywords will convert. Often it makes sense to target a lower volume and less competitive keyword, that has a higher conversion rate, than one that has high volume, but is super competitive and has a low conversion rate.

    In answer to your second question.

    Firstly, I find most sites are often happy to link to you if they have mentioned you on their site. It makes for a better user experience.

    Google isn’t as simple as it used to be, where it would divide all link juice by the number of links on the page. I think relevant links can actually help your site.

    Let’s use an analogue, just because you make a new friend (link), it doesn’t mean that your existing friends are worth less.


  163. Thank you for this is an incredible post for new sites wanting to build on back links and page rank. I never cared about back links until I noticed that it allows you to rank better on search engines. I have several blogs and am trying to improve back linking and page rank on all of them to maximize my traffic sources.

    Thanks again!

  164. Excellent article. You have covered all main points for getting quality backlinks. Thanks you so much..

  165. This is great info – but one word of warning on guest posts – make sure they are relevant to your site content and if possible, from a site in a related category. Let’s keep the end goal of having Google like you in mind: to get more traffic and ultimately, convert more. A random link from an unrelated site is going to do a lot less for you than something in a similar keyword family.

  166. I agree with u on certain point s and i would suggest all the newbie blogger should follow thsi for better search engine visibility.thanks for your great work.

  167. Totally agree! Well said.. there are many factors which make up Pagerank and Google seems to be changing the playing field several times per year… sometime it is hard to keep up!



  168. superb,

    I love the blog,

    But I have a question.
    I have backlink from 26+ website but still no change in page rank.
    but I can see few website have 3-5 links and have page rank 2-3 . why so?

    Please explain


    • Ammar Ali says:

      That’s kinda strange, No one knows what exactly Google is doing with PR

    • It’s because pagerank is not only dependent on backlinks Plus google is weird so you can never be sure exactly what is happening . I would suggest you try focusing on other things and not just backlinks :)

      • This is exactly the way I am beginning 2014 Saad… by not focusing as much time on backlinks, and more time on quality content.

        Example: I have a site that I spend like no time on…. zero, nada!! And it ranks on page #1 of Google for huge terms like “edu backlinks” and “cheap edu backlinks”. ( check it out.

        Seriously I built it, did some on-page SEO and forgot about it. Meanwhile I am spending a lot of money, time, and energy focusing on a few other sites that a huge PR4+ backink profile, linkwheel, as well as linked to many .edu and .gov sites…. BUT site on page 10 or greater for it’s keywords.

        Google is weird, and keeps changing the playing field, and I hate it lol !!!!

        something we have to adopt and work with, they are pretty much the only store in town right or the search engine that most users go to when searching for pretty much any brand, service, or business.

        So thanks, I agree, try other things other than beating your head on the proverbial backlinks wall :)

  169. Thanks for the 15 valuable tips Saad. For a young man like you, this post really reflects you a real talent. While I agree most of your tips are very helpful, I’m not quite sure about tips #5 (keep updating). I consider myself hardworking who updated my website 4 or 5 contents daily. But my website is still ranking Zero, while my competitor websites, which haven’t been update for weeks, still manage to get PR 2??? I really don’t get it.

    I also have a little set back on Link Exchange. I did research and found out many bad feedback on link exchange. However, I’ll give it a try and hopefully my site will get re-evaluate after 3 months..just like you said :)

    Thanks again for sharing these to us.


  170. Refreshingly clear article on this area. Tried really hard to find out how long it take Google to re-rank! Your article was the only one I found where I could get the data.

  171. Justin Bennett says:

    I’ve found over the years that the easiest way to achieve a high PR is though great content. All the other SEO strategies listed here play an important role, but at the end of the day it’s about user engagement, and that only comes with great content.


  172. Hello Saad,
    Awesome list of tips to increase page rank. Goolge PR is impotent for blog and website to show people, client and company, Page rank is say that people like your page and content. And backlink and content is most impotent to get good PR from google :) . Thank for sharing this article with us bro i defiantly try this tips. i hope its helpful for me :)

  173. Many of us focus so much on good keywords and backlinking that we forget about the importance of good content. I agee with you that you can target certain keywords or gain backlinks day after day, but at the end of the day if your content is crap you won’t get very far.
    It is important I believe that as a blogger we incorporate the total package. You have outlined some of the most important aspects of SEO that we should be focused on.

  174. Dear Saad, What if i add all the high quality post links ( ie the post /pages having higher page rank, as google award each post and pages a unique page rank and most of the time bloggers avoid this well known fact ) from my site on my home page. Do you think it would help me to scale page rank on next Google update.
