My “Secret” Recipe for Increasing Your Google Page Rank
I consider myself an unconventional blogger. I don’t worry about the same things as other bloggers, for example Page Rank. I was never really too concerned about having a high PR. Until today.
This morning I was reading a post on BloggerNoob.com called Don’t let PR hold you down. It got me thinking about my own blog’s PR, and how I thought that PR seemed to be nothing more than a status symbol. I started to write a comment about how I didn’t really care if my blog had a PR score of 0. Half way through the comment I decided to check my blog’s PR again. I was stunned. Somehow I my blog had a PR of 3.
I still think that there has been some kind of error, and that Google will notice the error and my PR will go back down to 0 very soon. I mean it must be an error, I haven’t really done anything to build my PR ranking. As you may or may not know, I want my blog to be “Super White Hat,” I do exactly what Google tells me to do. The only thing I did to increase my PR was send out a few blog link exchange requests when I first got started. I was told that I was supposed to do this, so I did. It took way to much work, and only one person ever responded to my exchange emails ( thanks Minty) so I stopped.
I don’t really push the whole blogroll thing. I don’t really care. I should say it now as the past tense: I didn’t really care. As soon as I saw PR 3, I did a little dance. It showed me that people really did enjoy my blog; that I was doing something good. I like working the web naturally, I don’t want to force anything. I firmly believe that a blog that grows naturally will always do better than a blog that has a been forced to grow. This is why I am stoked about my PR 3 ranking; it shows that people actaully enjoy my blog.
So, Thank you to those who come here daily to read my random ramblings, all 9 of you!
For those of you that want to increase your PR here is my secret recipe:
Prep: 10 minutes
Write: 30 minutes
Serves: 9 RSS subscribers
1 Internet Connection
2 oz of your favourite alcohol
1 Love of Movies
1 Weird sense of humour
1 Hatred of spam
1. Turn on computer and navigate to the internet, from here access your blog. Be sure to get distracted from reaching your blog by visiting other blogs that you have subscribed to. From here follow a tangent, bouncing from blog to blog, article to article. Log into your Google account and check your Adsense earnings for the previous day; cry. Hit the stumble button on your toolbar a few times.
2. Convince yourself that you have writers block, or perhaps the opposite (too many ideas, not quick enough fingers). Walk to liqueur cabinet and fill a glass with 2 oz of your favourite alcohol. Consume. Return to computer and begin blog post.
*note: If writers block persists add more alcohol.
3. Once blog post has been completed read through post and use the Love of movies to think of a movie with a similar theme as your blog post. Find an image from said movie and use Weird sense of humour to add a caption that is relevant and comical.
4. With the Hatred of spam, refuse to ask anyone to exchange blog links with you. Randomly add other blogs to your blog roll.
