Help me.. Backlinks problem

hi there, i’m new on SEO

recently i read an article. and i found something that bother me until now.

“For example, your current PageRank of 0, if there is one backlink from pagerank 10 website go to your site, your site’s PageRank can be increased to a maximum of 7. However, if your PR 4 site, whether you are creating backlinks from sites with a PageRank 6, still no results, it will not help you develop PageRank.”

“According to Table 2, for example, your site’s PageRank is PageRank 2 if you want to increase PR3 you need 3125 backlinks from websites with PageRank 0, or 625 backlinks from sites with PageRank 1, or 5 backlinks from websites with PageRank 3 …”

My Question :

  1. i had a site with pagerank N/A, and if i want to up to pagerank 0, i just have to obtain 1 backlinks from pr 3 to make me on pr 0 ??

2.on image above, that has 12 site linking in on alexa crawl and average is pr 6-7. so that’s mean backlinks ?? and i just have to waiting google to update my PR to 0 ??

Sorry for my bad language… and please help me about this problems :slight_smile:
Thanks for the assistance :slight_smile:

If you do a search on the forum for pagerank there has been two or three recent discussions about it and one of the things that came up is Google have not updated pagerank for over six months and my not be supporting it. If this is the case your pagerank will never increase.

That certainly seems to be what the table shows. Whether or not that’s correct, I don’t know.

You may have a long wait there, as Google only updates PageRank infrequently.

How old is the article you were reading? PageRank is becoming less and less relevant, to the point where Google have removed the information from Webmaster Tools and advised people to stop worrying about it

This comment is from a Google employee, explaining why they removed PageRank information from their Webmaster Tools:

We’ve been telling people for a long time that they shouldn’t focus on PageRank so much; many site owners seem to think it’s the most important metric for them to track, which is simply not true. We removed it because we felt it was silly to tell people not to think about it, but then to show them the data, implying that they should look at it. :slight_smile:

Thanks for the explanation Rubble and TechnoBear. i appreciate :slight_smile:

He created the article on September 27,2013. I confused, because my friend said PR is important.
so the site linking show on alexa is a backlinks that can incerease my PR, right ??

PageRank is Google’s own metric, so other search engines presumably ignore it. If you look at the links in my post above, you’ll see that even Google are saying that it’s really not worth worrying about, as it’s only one of over 200 factors which they use to rank your site.

If you still want to bother with it, you need to bear in mind that PageRank is applied per page, not per site. So although a site may have a high average PR, some of its internal pages may rank very low. This is especially true for pages where you can easily place a link for yourself. Yes, your incoming links will pass PageRank, but how effective this is depends on the PR of the page where the link is placed, not the PR of the site home page. And remember, too, that if you have more than one page in your own site, each page will have its own PR. If all those incoming links point to your home page, then your PR for that page may increase next time Google updates, but your other pages will receive little or no benefit.

@TechnoBear, so i don’t have to worry so much about PR and and those backlinks… maybe on quality of content :slight_smile:

Thank you so much :slight_smile: it explains everything, I learn much from this thread :slight_smile:

That’s it exactly - concentrate on the quality of your content, and the rest should follow.

Excellent - glad we could help. :slight_smile:

First off, Page rank has not been updated for the past 2 to 3 months. Second, there is no measurable method on how you can increase your pagerank. All we know is if a link has a good profile when it comes to quality and relevancy, it could mean a good link for you. Third, the PR that you see in a tool is completely different from what Google sees.

So every computation that you see on whatever sources you have that is said to be correct, I think you are wasting your time believing it. When it comes to PR, only Google knows what real PR is on every page of the web that they indexed.

To add on top of the comments above, please get your mind off this page rank topic. Focus only about your content, engaging with your users and following up with an ethical marketing plan like having guest posts and interactive with websites and businesses of the same nature. The pagerank is just a metric that can get changed, dropped or increased by known or unknown factors. There is no fixed rule or formula on how to increase it and you must not worry about that anyway.

P.S: Google did update the PR recently this month.
