Google Recently launched an update in toolbar Page Rank, popularly known as PR. Google Toolbar PR shows how popular and effective a website is, specially in terms of links (back links). Generally, a good website has PR 3-5 and new ones have PR N/A to 2. Some sites which derive huge traffic and are very influential, like Mashable and TechCrunch have PR 7 or 8. Page Rank of a website is depended on its back-links, both number and quality.
In the recent page rank update, technovalley regained PR3 which it had lost a few months ago. Also, many of our pages have gained Page Rank after the recent Google Page-Rank Update that took place on 6 Feb, 2011. Some of the major changes were:
- Home Page 2 > 3
- Plugins N/A > 4
- About Us N/A > 4
- Guest Post at Technovalley 1 > 3
- Category “Apple” N/A > 4
If you did not see any change in your Page Ranks, then there is not too much to worry! You just need to work harder to get more back links ( preferably do-follow ones ). And if you have lost Page Rank, do not worry too much. Just try to be more active on social networks and comment on Dofollow blogs.
