In this weeks webinar we covered exactly how Google PageRank works. A PageRank is a number given by Google between 0-10 which reflects the importance that Google gives the web page. Important pages receive a higher PageRank number and therefore are more likely to be displayed at the top of the search results.
As well as having relevant content and keywords, another way that Google determines the PageRank of a web site is by the number of links to it (incoming links or BackLinks). It will look at how many other pages on the internet think that the web page is important. If the web page is linked to by many pages with a high PageRank it may also receive a high rank. It’s also important that the links coming from other web pages are relevant. ie: The web page providing the link should be in a similar niche. If there are no links to a web page then Google will see there is no support for that page and it will not receive a high PageRank.
We also talked about the highest PageRank sites on the web at present. There are only around 13 websites that receive a PageRank of 10 (as of April 2010).
I also released a new website that Julie and I have been building which we think you will find to be a useful tool, called MyMarketingLinks.com. My Marketing Links is a collection of thumbnail website images that link to that website.
I setup one of these pages for my last Internet Marketing Retreat and everyone found it very useful to use as their home page. It makes it easier to find the website you’re looking for when building your internet marketing/affiliate websites without trying to remember each and every domain name for all of the websites that you use. You may find it useful to set as your home page – then you’ll never have to search for that website domain again!
If you feel there’s a website that has been missed, that you use often, let me know and we can add it for you. Enjoy!
