Gaining PageRank from Google is perhaps one of the best achievements that a search engine optimizer could attain.
PageRank is Google’s system of gauging the value or importance of your site. It is named after Larry Page, the founder of Google. PageRank is a Google trademark, which process is patented officially in the US Patent Office.
Search Engine Land explains that “PageRank is Google’s system of counting link votes and determining which pages are most important based on them. These scores are then used along with many other things to determine if a page will rank well in a search.”
Despite the fact that Google had removed PageRank in its Google Web Master Tools interface to encourage bloggers and webmasters to focus on other factors that qualify a site, PageRank has remained as a primary website quality indicator.
PageRank or PR rating ranges between 0 to 10; and PR 10 as the highest. Google and Facebook have perfect PR10 each, while Twitter has PR9.
When I started my first blog, “From Worry to Glory” in September 2009, I don’t have any idea about SEO writing nor about PR. What was in my mind then is to publish my writings through my blog.
Then I created “Online Writing Niche” in July 2010 with the thought of achieving PageRank for it. At that time I already knew about the importance of PR.
After ten months without any development, I told myself that gaining PR is only for those who have the knowledge and expertise in blogging and search engine optimization.
Then in June 2011, I was quite elated to see that my blogs, “From Worry to Glory” and “Online Writing Niche” earned a PR.
“From Worry to Glory”, which is a motivational and inspirational blog, got PR1 after one year and nine months.
“Online Writing Niche”, which is a blog on Internet marketing, gained PR2 after ten months.
