Does anyone know of some useful and quick ways i can use to increase my page rank and hence search engine traffic?
I've tried link exchanging and link building and have only got almost 30 sites pointing to mine after 2 months! and my page rank is still ZERO!
Could you suggest some better and easier ways to build links cause link exchanging takes a lot of time!
I also found some automatic link exchange sites which looked promising like telalinks.com but unfortunately they required you to upload a page to your site which you can't with synthasite!

Please help me out ,my site: http://www.muzicera.com

Hi Fizanali

I am sorry to hear that you are tired and frustrated. However, when it comes to search engine ranking there is no quick fix. The first things I would like to ask you is:
1) How frequently do you update the content on your site?
2) Are the links from other sites to your site on quality websites with content related to the content on your site?

Here are some links to useful posts in this forum. People who have achieved good results with the search engines have shared some useful ideas:

http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite...

http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite...

http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite...

There is a lot of information in those posts, so it might be a bit much to absorb all at once. All I can tell you is that if you implement any or all of the advice shared above, in time your search enging ranking will improve and you will start to attract more traffic to your site.

I see one weakness you have in your source code....your page title simply says music and the word juice....Come up with a short phrase with words relevant to things about your site....nothing really long but something with a little more info....Make sure ALL pages have titles and as many key words and key word phrases as you can think of.

HI.
Heres the interesting thing, my site is rated 0 for page rank and continues to stay at zero.
However. For many of my keywords i apear in the google first 10 and for 5 of them i come up number 1. against over 1.5 million documents.
I would love to see the page rank bar move a bit but i am questioning myself as to do i need to even bother with pagerank ?

Hello Jason,

PageRank is Google's internal measurement denoting the number and importance of links pointing to any given site; that said, it basically measures the sites authority on a given topic. When a site links to another website it is basically a vote for that site; and the more authority the site has that is linking to the other site, the more that vote is worth.

That said; when the Google algorithm chooses which pages to return to the user for any give search query, it is not only looking at overall site importance and authority (PageRank), but also query specific relevance.

There are a huge number of variables, and Google keeps these relatively secret, besides PageRank that they use when ranking sites for given keywords.

A site that is updated and added to often, with good content and good readership may not have a good PageRank (not many sites linking to it) but will have some good listings in the search results pages because of the other factors.

Hope this helps a bit. The search engines are a bit of a mystery. Props to you for having a great site and getting some good search results.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Be sure to create and include meta tags on every page. The site must be well-organized. If your content is fresh and lucrative the number of traffic will positively increase. The article pages of your site must be specified by separate specific keyword or word combination.

Does social bookmarking help in increasing the page rank?

Yes, it does. Any inbound links to your site increase your page rank, so social bookmarking is a good technique to use.

Google pagerank is a very very complex algorithm and a secret.
But , inlinks , link popularity , bounce rate, etc all influences this.

ALL google services are used to measure pagerank , youtube , gmail , analytics , feedburner , chrome , adsense , google maps , google groups , blogger , etc , etc.

This is why thousands of companies depending on page rank. People pay tons of dollars to increase their page rank.

I am very happy to say that I've a web site which has a pagerank of 2!!
-if you aren't sure , check - www.techrome.com

I didn't pay anything , no maps , no adsense or adwords , of course.

Just verifing with all search engines , linking with ientry directories and some other , writing articles to article directories , and GOOD CONTENT..

Try adding decent , perfect , own , fresh and good content.

Don't put information about your pet , your town , you , your tie when you go office , etc.
The site must be a good source (or seems to be , at least)

target Mr. Dunkan , Mr. johanson or Ms. Peter, not just Jacks , Jills or bills.

Do NOT use that ways to increse.
As a habit , I always try to get a link to me , not to give one for 'em.
Also , do not try to get links from sites that have a PR of zero.

My site had pagerank 2 in 5 months.
Simply , I delivered feeds via feedburner , created a fan page and twitter account for my site , got links from pegasusdirectory.com.

Use A tags with a keyword as a text, linking to your site, such as

Pagerank doesn't mean much anymore guys --- one thought would be to narrow your content into a specific niche vs a broad category - then have the URL strings reflect the onpage content - add an FAQ page with niche related questions and answers, use tags on the pages and avoid spammy link farms. And who in their right mind would give you a link and not receive one back?

what I do, when i link exchange with other websites, I pull a page rank on that other website, if they are a 4 or lower, I don't ask to be linked to and I don't link to them. However, it is often said, that you can't be held liable for someone else's doing that's out of your control... with this in mind, remember, you won't be penalized for bad sites linking to your site, therefore, the extra traffic from those sites might actually be better... however, remember not to link back to those sites... especially if they have previously been reported by certain sites. If you link to known spamming sites, you will definitely not get a good page rank if any at all.

I went nearly 12 months on a PR of N/A, then I learned the link exchanging tricks. After I removed all bad links, a month later I went from N/A to 0... 0 is better than N/A.... two months after that, I went to a PR of 2.. which is where I'm at now...

so I went, 12 months (with bad links) on a PR of N/A and another 3 months of only good links... I'm now a two! Two is actually really good. Think of this pattern...

how hard was it to get to 0.... assuming you started with N/A? Probably a challenge...

1 is 2 times as hard to get to as N/A is to 0....
2 is 4 times as hard
3 is 8 times as hard
4 is 16 times as hard
5 is 32 times as hard
6 is 64 times as hard
7 is 128 times as hard
8 is 256 times as hard
9 is 512 times as hard
10 is 1,024 times as hard....

Experts believe this to be a precise model of how part of Google's algorithm is designed based on research. Those with a page rank of 10 (if they even exist) probably have the best professional web designers around and been in business since the 90s.

So remember this, if you ever get to 2 like me... it wasn't easy... and 3 will be 8 times as hard!

Hi Phil,
Looks like an interesting site! I live in Canada, so adding a Province in the search criteria would certainly help matters. It's about 5000 km from one side of the country to the other, lol!

Getting page rank is easy but ultimately pointless since the real thing you are after is traffic. Having a high page rank and having lots of traffic to your site don't necessarily go hand in hand. I've seen lots of PR5 sites on the tenth page of google results...and fuurther down, so what is the good of that. No-one is going to see it.

I didn't bother reading all the replies in this thread because I've seen them a million times on other forums. I wouldn't bother with trying to build PR; rather focus on building traffic.

Proper on-site seo as others have pointed out is mandatory but it's not the be all and end all of getting traffic to your site (and forget the fascination with page rank).

Building strong links to your site is what brings traffic to your site. This can be done numerous ways. A few are:

Article marketing
blog commenting
social bookmarking
youtube videos
document sharing
Forum sigs

I could go on and on and on...there are that many ways to build links to your sites and build traffic that it boggles the mind. Building strong baclinks to your site from authority sites will eventually drive a steady flow of traffic to your web page.

Just forget the whole pr thing...it's a waste of time and not going to mean you are going to make money online or get visitors to your site.

Cheers

Jason

Thanks for your comment here Jason! Yes, building traffic is key and when you put this in place, the PR will increase as the website gains authority.

Thanks,

Yeah I can only agree that it is hard to move from page rank 0,you can have tons of backlinks but if these sites are poorly rated then it really doesn't matter. It's better to focus on a few good ones, thats my experience.

One thing that I haven't seen anyone else here point out is that Google Page Rank updates typcially happen every 3 months, so for someone starting a website and wondering why they're not ranked 2 months later... a page rank may not even have yet been applied. Follow the Google Blog to find out when this happens.

I see the creator of this thread now has a PR3. Great job!

Hi Solapur,
I think the comment made by Amy Kas could explain why this is: "One thing that I haven't seen anyone else here point out is that Google Page Rank updates typcially happen every 3 months, so for someone starting a website and wondering why they're not ranked 2 months later... a page rank may not even have yet been applied. Follow the Google Blog to find out when this happens."

I also found an interesting article about Page Ranks, and how to increase them, which you can find here: http://www.searchengineguide.com/andr.... Hopefully it addresses and answers your question. If not, take a look at the earlier answers from Monique and Emmy, as they make some excellent points.

Be careful of 100 s of unrelated links as they can do more harm than good. If google thinks you are abusing their quality guidelines they can remove your site from their index and you won't show up in a search at all.

I tried most of all of the above suggestions and had the most rotten luck until yesterday. This is what I did:
1. I placed an ad on kijiji and paid my 4 bucks to get my website link on it.
2. I rented a .com address from yolasite for one year.
3. I resubmitted my url to google under the new .com address

I did this for my gf's business. So now, if you type in "massage Essex Ontario" onto google, you will see my (her) site yourpersonalmassage.com about 7 from the top. Also, on page 2, there's the kijiji ad as well.

Google picks up kijiji ads within minutes.

Try this, if nothing else, your kijiji ad will appear in the google search engine so quick your head will spin, and interested people will click on the link!
I'm not having much (any) luck with yahoo or msn yet.
