    The best way is to get one way links from as many sites with as high PR as you can.

    There is no secret to it. Just keep getting those incomming links and optimize your site to channel PR to your homepage.

    Alos, keep building lots of content and pages for your own site. Internal pages count too.

    If you search this forum for a while you will actually come up with some good tips! It's not a one post guide, so I'm afraid I can't just give you a URL, just a collection of everyone's experience accumulating over the years.

    Build up a lot of unique content for your pages. Also, try to make your code as clean as possible.

    Content and code have no direct effect on PR

    How so? If your code is clean search engines will be able to spider it better. Maybe not the content part though.

    It is a mathmatical forumla that determines link popularity. Code and content are not factors in the equation.

    Interesting. So what is the point of having clean code aside fom the luxury.

    I always thought the cleaner your code the more effective a SE bot can crawl your webpage. The better it crawls your site, the more content, the higher you will be ranked.

    A very poorly designed website + 100 incoming links would rank higher than a site well designed site with 99 incoming links?

    Clean code should be used just because it is easier to maintain. The fact that is may help search engines read your content is a bonus.

    I don't know how much it affects a crawlers ability to read content but I doubt the effect is that dramatic. But it's always good to make the crawlers' life easier and not too risk having content not indexed just because you wrote sloppy code. Anyways, this still doesn't affect PR no matter how you look at it.

    There are so many factors in ranking a page that comparisons like this just can't be made.

    That more for SERPs benefit than PR. The concept is that if your content is higher up on the page you have a slight advantage. I wouldn't get to obsessed with that.

    Backlinks, through blogging works wonders. I finally hit PR7. I'm not sure I'll ever get to 8, but I'll enjoy the 7 nonetheless.

    so is there a general consensus that good blogging is a good way to garner viewership? and what about

    ...a good link building campaign started and you will be well on your way...
    how has everyone done that?

    I'm new to the SEO game, if you can't tell. I've read the FAQ and I know the basics, but I don't really understand how I would get, say, a web development company linked all over the place.

    Blogging is a good tool in SEO, but requires effort. It's not like other SEO tools where things can be done in bunches. Blogging requires a regular time commitment, and an interest in the activity itself in order to succeed.

    That said, the number of companies I've helped become major players in their industry solely through blogging is growing fairly rapidly

    To clear up some confusion, the "Page Rank" being referred to here is Google's own "magic number" that ranks the authority of your web page. Theoretically this number affects your actual ranking in serps (search engine results pages); positively for higher page rank.

    I believe that Max may have been confusing search engine position for page rank.

    Keep writing good code Max - good search engines DO take into account the semantic aspects of code (eg <h1>TheOriginalH</h1> will carry more weight than <p class="big">TheOriginalH</p> or <p font-size="6">TheOriginalH</p>).
