How can I Increase my PageRank
Posted by Adam Hayes
Here's a freebie for improved search engine optimization and increased PageRank.
I was recently received the following question on one of my articles:
I am a Coldwell Banker agent in [city] [state]. My Web site is [website] How can I get better PageRank? - D. Heck
(city,state, and website have been removed to protect the poster)
I have been asked how to increase PageRank a number of times and so I'll provide a quick checklist of things to do. Mr. Heck you should:
- Read all of the articles on this site about PageRank and SEO (Search Engine Optimization.
- Get rid of all of your SPAM on your site. (You know, the 322 keywords that have been stuffed between "Buyers looking for.... and much more!" and the following 3 paragraphs of SPAM. You should be glad you have any PageRank at all since that is more than enough to get you BANNED from the search engines.
- Fix your Title and Meta tags. (They are filled with SPAM) For basic information see our SEO Basics Page.
- Remove the hidden comment tags with stuffed keywords. (More SPAM)
- Talk to other realtors and get some links pointing to your site. (To check the number of links that Google has on file type in "link:www.yoursite.com" without the quotes in google and see that you only have one link (and it is from your own site)
There is a basic checklist. If you do read all the articles in our Search Engine Optimization Tips, you will have a much better grasp on why you have little PageRank and what you should do. As your page sits right now, I wouldn't want to touch it for fear of being associated with a site that will more than likely be banned. If I were you, I'd get rid of the SPAM before the search engines get rid of your site.
