Hello my wonderful readers, just 4 days ago I wrote a post on the update of Google page rank which actually everybody has been waiting for since. It came and majority of blogs were affected (i.e. their page ranks were dropped).
From what I observed, and from people’s comments and discussions. I noticed that majority of new blogs that was having PR: N/A got a PR: 0, I think that’s a progress. But most blogs that has page rank of 4, 5 & some 6 were a step backward. Few added a count anyway, because I actually saw a blogger that added one more… from PR: 3 to PR: 4. My domain is new, so I actually went for N/A to PR 0. All the way, I make progress.
However, after I published the article on the update of Google page rank, most bloggers reacted somehow and most especially the new bloggers who were expecting something new and for those bloggers who are not in blogging tips niche, you need to know these things I’m about to share today, because you own a blog too and you need to know how to improve your page rank as well.

I gave a simple definition of what page rank is and for those who haven’t read my previous post, you can read it: Google Pagerank: updated on 6th Dec, 2013. I believe that one is settled? Now have you ever imagined how do Google calculate their page rank?
How Do Google calculate her page rank?
According from my researches, page rank is calculated by the various algorithms made by search engines. i.e, in a simple word, page rank is calculated on the number of links on your site; or that have entered your site as at the time the update was done.
Those links are:
1. Back links.
2. Internal links.
3. External links.
4. No-Follow links.
5. Do-Follow links.
6. Inbound links
After these links are calculated on your site, Google and other subordinate will analyze this link and assign a numerical page numbering from 1 to 10 to your website. Therefore, below I will be discussing effective tips to improve your page rank, if the recent update didn’t favor you.
