You can guess what might have fallen in my heart when I noticed my blog was 0 PageRank. Viper proof plugin was showing PageRank: none! What mistake did I do? I never believe on black hat techniques and never tried to snatch a higher number doing anything nasty. Why Google penalized me?
OMG my other blog too is thrashed down to 0 pagerank? And another site too? No, no, no! Something is fissy. All of my blogs and websites displayed 0 PageRank. It was just puzzling. No idea what went wrong.
It was a great soothing to see Facebook too had 0 pagerank. I am happy again, not because Facebook too lost its pagerank, but because I knew there was some problem with Google PageRank system. Facebook can’t loose all of its pagerank at once.
What is PageRank?
It is a Google’s ranking system that awards each site with a number in scale 0 to 10. Higher the number the more authentic site. A site with 0 PageRank is considered less reliable compared to a site with higher PageRank. So you must always try to improve your Google page rank.
Though PageRank is a metric from the Google the biggest search engine company, it is reflect the website importance from all aspects. It is mostly based on the link popularity. It is truly ridiculous that there are some websites with higher PageRank that have 0 or very little content. So, people use PageRank along with Alexa and Compete to determine more accurate value of a website.
How to increase your google page rank
There are profuse tutorials, tips and courses about improving your SERP and increase your Google page rank. Talking about Google PageRank, the best suggestion will be to acquire back links from websites and webpages that have higher PageRank. If you succeeded to get a few dozens of back links from pages having PageRank 4 or higher, you’ll experience significant increase in Google PageRank.
Though the backlink is not everything, but it is most determining factor in calculating PageRank.
Why is my blog 0 PageRank?
Most often you’ll see N/A or 0 for PageRank when it is still a new blog. As it starts getting more links and improving in popularity, the PageRank increases gradually. This is normal and a usual case!
What gave it a big punch was PageRank 0 down from PageRank 3. It is not possible that all of the links I was getting were lost at once.
Finally all it turned out was the change in PageRank query URL. Google changed the query URL and all of the PageRank checker tools failed to retrieve the real value and thus, displayed N/A or 0. Great! there’s nothing to worry about.
The whole incident got more interesting in the shadow of long hypes that Google is going to withdraw PageRank. Most people thought if it is due to the closure of PageRank system. But it is verified now that PageRank is not dead yet.
