- Written by Luis Posselt
Today I will be talking about Google Page Rank and how it works. Together with that, I am going to give you the general idea behind increasing your Google Page Rank.
Now I am not going to give you Formulas to calculate Google Page Rank or even exact strategies to increase your Google Page Rank. What I am going to explain in here is basically general ideas what Google Page Rank is, how it works, and how it is normally increased.
Again this post will show you only the general ideas. So those who are starting to work from home learn about Google Page Rank.
Now Google Page Rank can do one important thing to your site and that is that it can help your Websites to get a better Search Engine Result Pages (SERP) and as result you can get more visitors.
Side Note: Google Page Rank is only one from many different factors that let your SERP increase.
SERP = Search Engine Result Pages
What Google Page Rank is?
In general terms, Google Page Rank can be seen as a popularity ranking tool because in fact that is what Google does when ranking websites. Google basically with the algorithm behind PR will give more page rank to the more popular websites. The more popular your Website is, the better Google Page Rank and SERP (Search Engine Result Pages), your website can have.
How Google Page Rank Works?
The process behind this tool is that it generally checks the amount of links that are pointing to your site, but it also checks what kind of sites are pointing to your site, how powerful those websites are (Domain Authority, Page Authority, etc), and how much actual PR those websites have. Plus many other factors of course.
How you can increase your Page Rank?
One of the main factors to increase your Google Page Rank and SERP is by just increasing the links that are pointing to your website. Now I am not telling you to get just a bunch of links and that will do it. That’s not the key formula. Unfortunately there are a lot of different factors that Google normally uses to calculate page rank and because of that I cannot really give all of them in just a normal blog post.
Now as you can see in the picture below, the Big Red Circle represents your website and the Blue, Green, and Yellow (Yellow) circles represent other websites around the internet. So basically in order to increase your PR (Page Rank), you will need to have other websites point links to your site. The more links you have the better but if you get links from websites that have already a good Page Rank and if those links are DoFollow Links, you will be more likely to increase your Page Rank more easily and faster.
Remember these two key points.
1) If you get links from websites with higher Page Rank and 2) if you get links with the DoFollow Link Attribute or without the rel="nofollow", the better the chances your website will get a higher Page Rank too and the more likely your website will start ranking better on the Search Engines.

As a quick summary, Google Page Rank is basically a tool that ranks websites on the internet. The way that this system works is that it checks how many links and what websites are pointing to your site, so it can determine your PR (Page Rank).
Finally if you want to increase your Google Page Rank, the best thing you can do is to get links from websites that have already a good PR and that will let you create links with the DoFollow Attribute or without the rel="nofollow". In that way your SERP and Page Rank will increase and your online success rate will be a lot better.
