Possible Google PageRank Update!

Noticed many webmasters claiming some PR changes on there websites at Google Forum on DigitalPoint …

Here are some of the IPs where users have reported some changes in PR: 64.233.187.99, 72.14.255.18 & 64.233.167.99.

In order to check it on your PC, you need to make some changes in the host file located in C:windowssystem32driversetc (if you are using Windows).
Opens up the host file with Notepad: (take a backup of this file first)

# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host
127.0.0.1 localhost
toolbarqueries.google.com 216.239.53.104
127.0.0.1 pagead2.googlesyndication.com
127.0.0.1 ad.doubleclick.net

The above means to use the 216 IP address to check Toolbar. Change this (216.239.53.104) to 64.233.187.99 (or any other ip listed by me above) and save your file. Restart your browser (or PC if needed) and you will be able to see these changes.

Leave a comment if you have noticed similar changes with your website PR .. or feel free to ask if you have any related question !!

How to get good PageRank ?

So here is the question How to improve PageRank ?

I will suggest you all to have a look at my recent article: Trust is important then building anchor text before going through this article.

I had already Discussed about Paid Links earlier in my Post: Are Paid Links Evil in Real?.

Now a days i had seen many webmasters getting slapped by Google for Paid Links, Paid Post, Buying Links and Exchanging Links to increase there PageRank (PR). If you had seen my article Exchanging Links Just a SEO Mistake, then the point must be clear that best links are not paid, or exchanged.

Well here I’m telling you some simple points which might be helpful in getting good PR… so here are the points below:

  1. Don’t buy or sell sitewide links for serps.
  2. Don’t look for high PR links from the beginning – I will recommend to start your new site link building with PR 0-1 and slowly move up according to increase in your rankings.
  3. Control your link building speed. Building 5-10 links a day is fine.
  4. Avoid link-farms, links to gambling, pills, etc.
  5. Link from a relevant website is fantastic.
  6. Make links look natural.
  7. Different anchor text, while building links will be useful.
  8. Don’t do reciprocal link exchange.

Important: Lol … have a look at the below reply …. i saw at one of the webmasters forum when a guy asked similar question How to get good PageRank ? … the guy replied:

Ok. Here you go. Its a secret. never tell anyone!
Search and find Good PR site which has the "Top Commentator" plugin enabled.
Make it a habit to post comments there regularly. Once you enter their Top Commentator list, You get their PR Juice Transfered to your domain.
Another secret,
Search and Find Good PR sites which has "You comment, I follow" / DoFollow feature enabled. Make it a habit again to comment there.

Always remember this will be considered SPAM !! Instead of getting good PR you will loose your PR… .

Thats not all … i will recommend go for a nice content websites and you will get excellent backlinks automatically 😉
