<strong>Check Your Google Pagerank – Website Ranking Checker…</strong>
This is important but I should warn you, this site replicates what can be done manually. This is primarily an advertising site but it does do a couple rankings all at once and is useful. But I noticed that no matter what site I put in, the Google Ranking was zero. There is a reason for that, read on.
http://www.alexa.com is one of the most widely used ways of ranking your website. This ranks you more on traffic than anything else.
http://www.googleranking.com ranks your site on Google by your keywords. It also ranks you on Ask, MSN and Yahoo. It is better if you have installed a Google API Key. The only way to get a good ranking on Google is to pair it with the keywords. If you haven’t chosen great keywords, you may rank high on that keyword but still not get the right kind of traffic. The site above never asked for a keyword or phrase. No wonder my rank was zero.
Yahoo Backlinks – I’ll discuss backlinks later, but this ranking is pretty well just a count of how many sites link back to you. Backlinks are very important but watch for later articles on backlinks. There’s a right way and a way that will get you blacklisted.
DMOZ Directory – The DMOZ Directory is one of the oldest directories/search engines on the planet. It’s manual submission only. Most people don’t know about it. There are so many search engines that build their directories using DMOZ, it’s a must if you want traffic. The thing is this, DMOZ is run by people like you and me, like a Wikipedia link of thing. Someone runs each folder and gets to decide whether you can be listed or not. Anyway, more on DMOZ later.
The bottom line is that using a website like http://www.mygooglepagerank.org is fine as long as you know what you are really looking at. The results I got from using this site would make one think they need his services and you might consider using this service, but just like almost every site that does this, it’s really just a way to make you think your site isn’t optimized right. That may be true and it may not. My point is don’t trust every little website. As you read on, you’ll discover none of this is really rocket science. It’s common sense, anyone can do it. Don’t just hire someone thinking everything will be done. Just like your own health, you need to be educated, you need to get a second, or thord opinion. You need to know when someone is blowing smoke up your keester and when they are not. Comment if you want.
Hey Doc, I am with you through LeadGusher.
It’s interesting as my Blog has no PageRank with Google, however, my Alexia Ranking has gone from 2 million back in Nov, to a current 442,000 global and 68,000 in the US today. I know my backlinks vary wildly depending on who you get the results from. Alexia says I have 52, while Yahoo says I have over 1400. I guess the reason Google doesn’t rank me is because I am still a nothing in their (biased) eyes. I am really not sure how I can get them to rank me, other than keep on trying! Also, you are right, most of these try to sell you by making you think your site is junk and you need their services..:)
I love the Intrepidity Theme you chose for your site, very clean, attractive, nice to see you got your Blog going..my best to you sir and I appreciate the “Local” advice as well…take care!
The only way to get a good ranking on Google is to pair it with the keywords.
You stated “The only way to get a good ranking on Google is to pair it with the keywords.” How do you pair up you keywords with Google?
Hi Michael, what I mean by that is to get a ranking at all, you need to enter your website with some keywords or a keyword phrase. Google ranks your website on the keywords used. There’s no way to get a ranking from them just by putting in your website alone.
Hi Dan, thanks for the comment. Over the next several weeks, I plan on detailing what SEO optimization really is, the methodologies, the how tos and so forth. Alexa ranks you on traffic very differently from Google page ranking. And you’re right, just what the heck is a ranking worth if all you get is different results from everyone? So stay tuned. I’ll try to make this as step-by step as I can. Proper Search Engine Optimization which is what gets you ranked starts with choosing the right website name based on keyword research, then making certain elements on your page reflect the keywords you have chosen, strange places like tags, tags, alt image descriptions, and a lot of other places. Then the tedious task of submitting your website to the literally 100s of search engines out there, some of manual only. Then getting as many valid decent back links as you can, and finally things like videos and auto responders. Traffic exchanges, safelists, advertising rotators like AdvertiseYourBusinessNow and Prospect Geyser are also an integral part of the mix. Of course, getting decent analytics to see what your efforts are actually producing in the way of traffic guide you from there. Anyway, I hope to have that done at least a good start on that over this next month.
Between me and my husband we keep re-reading your blog because it is so interesting…we love it!
This is the right blog for anybody who desires to find out about this topic. You realize so much its virtually laborious to argue with you (not that I actually would need…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great!
I thank you, I try not to teach hype, just from experience. It has to be something I’ve done, experienced and seen work.
