Finally a Google PageRank Update
So Google has finally done a Google PageRank Tool Bar Update. I honestly thought there would never be another update considering Google was aware there was an issue, that was stopping them being able to release a PageRank update. And they decided to do nothing about it for months.
The funny thing about the Google Tool Bar to measure PageRank is it is only formally supported by Google on IE. I does make we wonder what other informatory are they collected through this
But what does a Google PageRank Update actually mean to You?
As Google does PageRank updates everyday – they just periodically decide to release the PageRank Tool Bar update to the general public.
Besides this information is already a couple of weeks old – how do I know this? We manage a number of sites for customers and 1 of them we did a number of redirects from 2 sub-domains to another sub-domain to consolidate the information. Eg subdomain1.example.com and suddomain2.example.com were both redirected to subdomain3.example.com
Both subdomain1.example.com and subdomain2.example.com were created back in February 2013 or something like this. subdomain3.example.com was created on 30 of October 2013 and has a Page Rank of PR0.
When I did a site: subdomain1.example.com today (7th of December) I found a couple of pages that I had not done redirects on – the privacy page was a PR3. It’s not exactly the most popular page or get much traffic.
Either way this makes me believe that the information Google releases to the public regarding PageRank is old information. I’ve thought this for a number of years now, as you notice any links that you had built in the last couple of weeks before a Google PageRank update – they don’t seem to be counted as part of a pages PageRank.
All that aside, how do you make the most out of the recent Google PageRank update. As we know just because 1 page has a higher PageRank does not mean necessary they will out rank a competitor for a keyword.
I’ve seen it thousands of times and I’m sure you have as well. The more related a linking page is to the page you are trying to rank the high you will rank.
So how do you do this without doing black hat as it catches up with you eventually.
