Page Rank For Bloggers

Posted by Brian Connole | 11/19/2009 | , , , , , | 0 comments »

For as long as I can remember, I have been told "don't worry too much about your blogs Page Rank", So I never really did. But looking back on it now, I wish I would have started building up a better PR (Page Rank) earlier on. Instead I was more focused on traffic and making my blog look nice. Which of course it is good to have a professional looking blog that grabs your visitors attention, but what do you think is more important?

Think about it, if you need to find some information on a certain topic, and you come across 2 different blogs that look like they both possibly have the information that you're searching for, the only difference is that one has a PR1 and the other has a PR8. Which blog are you more likely to trust to give you the most accurate and up to date information. I would choose a blog with a PR8 too.

More and more people these days know about Page Rank and that the higher the PR the better. To show their banner on your blog, some advertisers out there will actually pay you $10.00 a month for every point of your PR. So if you have a blog with a PR7, that's $70.00 a month. Not to mention if you could get 4 or 5 advertisers to do that. Then you mix that with some Google AdSense earnings and you'll be on track to become a full-time blogger.

How do you get a high PR? Well I know that a lot of weight is placed on back-links pointing to your blog. A good way to get back-links is to find other bloggers in your niche and exchange links with them. You can also comment on the other blogs that you visit. Just make sure to leave your blogs link in your signature, then if they have the follow attribute set up on their blog, your comment will then create a link pointing to back your blog from theirs.

Of course you also want to practice using good SEO (search engine optimization). This way your blog will show up in the search engines for the keyword phrases that your trying to rank for. I discussed this in a previous post, Top 3 SEO Tips For Your Blog.

Remember to check back often for new tips and suggestions about how to make money blogging using Google AdSense. I hope this can help you to grab a higher PR for your blog. As always, keep working smart not hard, and good luck!
