I am happy to relate how I succeeded in gaining PR 3 for my blog in less than four months. Of course, PageRank is not everything and not the ultimate goal for creating a blog.
For those who are experts, gaining PageRank for a site is a simple feat. In my three years of being a blogger, attaining PR 3 for my site is quite an achievement.
I started Central Philippine University Blog on March 8, 2011 with the introductory page as its first post. I also created pages and categories but these are all blank pages, which I reserved for future blog posts.
I never expected that PR 3 could be attained in just four months considering that my two other sites, From Worry to Glory earned PR1 in 21 months and Online Writing Niche, PR2 in nine months.
I am not knowledgeable about how PageRank is computed and I am not aware of the specific elements and requirements that would facilitate the achievement of PR for a site.
Just like what a blogger does, I wrote and posted contents. With my SEO knowledge, I built inbound and outbound links and promoted the blog through social media sites, especially Twitter and Facebook.
I bought the domain centralphilippineuniversity.org in March 2011. I decided to have the blog remain its free hosting with WordPress.com.
After posting initially the introductory page in March, Central Philippine University Blog became idle for a month. In May, I made additional posts and from then on, I supplied fresh blog contents regularly.
In the last week of July 2011, less than four months after I created Central Philippine University Blog, I noticed that the PR checker on my toolbar showed the number “3”. I was quite elated to find out that Central Philippine University Blog earned PR3.
So, what did my blog has when it gained PR3?
• Between March to July, I posted 18 articles composed of 450-500 words average.
• Google had indexed 176 pages.
• Back links numbered 156.
• Traffic or number of visits averaged 35 per day.
• I posted 10 videos.
• Photos enhance the blog articles.
Well, I’m not saying that these are the exact bases that caused Google to give Central Philippine University Blog PR3. I listed these elements of my blog when it gained PR3 so that it would serve as benchmark.
I believe that as long as you are committed to posting quality contents, building internal and external links to enhance your article, you will succeed in gaining traffic and following. Sure enough, PageRank would follow.
So what can you say?
