How to Increase a Website’s Google Pagerank The Right Way.

Certain websites have more prestige in Google, while most do not. Why is this? Because the ones at the top have a good Pagerank.

This automatically gives them higher rankings. If you’re wondering how to increase your website’s Google page rank, know it’s possible and this page will show you how. 

Before I go any further, one thing I want to point out is this: A lot of people ask about pagerank, authority & indexing. I’ve written separate articles on authority and indexing, but in short, the higher your website’s pagerank, the higher your authority with Google and vise versa. In addition the same methods you use in one area can help improve others which basically means, if you utilize the methods below, you’ll not only improve pagerank with your site, but also it’s authority. 

Note: Page rank is no longer used! Major update!

It is now not possible to see or know what your site’s PR is. Either it’s not used anymore by Google or they don’t let you see it and have their own invisible grade for it. Learn what’s changed and what you need to do in order to still get results. All the info is here.

Now despite that update, the options I originally recommended to raise your page rank still help in getting the site to rank higher in general, and I still use these tips today, so I would go ahead and read them all, use them all, but just don’t worry about your site PR at all.

Right Way #1: Utilize & Make YouTube videos.

YouTube already has massively high page rank (7 or 8 out of 10 which is the highest). Look up searches for pretty much anything and I’m willing to bet most of the time you’ll see a Youtube video on the first page and in most cases at the very top.

So why not utilize this for your own endeavors? Youtube videos will naturally rank higher for most keywords than other websites so if you haven’t already utilized the power of this place, you’re missing out.

One of the main things you need to do is find a profitable keyword, put it into quotes and search for it on Google. If you see that there is no Youtube video on the first page, you have a massive opportunity to capitalize on this! 

Additionally, I have a YouTube case study on a video that did 20k+ visits. See how much it made.

Right Way #2: Share your website’s content on social networks & ask for comments.

I recommend this for indexing faster, building authority with Google and will also recommend this for pagerank as well. Social networking greatly helps with all of these aspects of SEO. Here are several reasons why:

1. They give you massive exposure for very little effort. Anyone can share their page/s with places like Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and a whole bunch of other places.

Each time you share a page/post with friends and they like it, this immediately gets shared with their friends meaning the room for exposure and extra traffic is pretty much limitless.

2. Comments on your website also greatly help improve your page rank. I’ve seen it time and time again. Posts didn’t show up on Google until I had some people commenting on it. Always encourage people to share feedback and ask questions on your website. Comments also build trust and show that your site is alive and getting people’s interest.

If you’re going to utilize social networks, make sure to ask people to leave a like or comment on your page. And on your site, also make sure to encourage people to comment (tips).

Right Way #3: Always add content to your website that’s helpful to your reader/s.

Use this site as a prime example of this. I always make new posts/pages every few days. You should too! Fresh content is important for building your pagerank. You can’t expect to put some pages up, leave your site alone and let it work for you. Nowadays this policy no longer works (for SEO at least) and you need to keep building your website.

What will happen if you properly use all 3 methods:

In short, your pagerank will go up. As it goes up, you’ll notice your posts/pages show up on Google faster and faster, which means you’ll get more traffic each time. It’s a snowball effect. The more quality content you write, the more comments and likes you get, the higher your page’s rank will go up. 

One thing to keep in mind is to shape your website in a way which is helpful to visitors. Don’t try to sell too much or write about things which don’t catch people’s attention. If they aren’t interested, they won’t comment.

If there’s no activity on your website and it isn’t being liked or commented on, you can forget about getting a high PR with Google. Keep the visitor in mind and write for them. Offer them content and information which will keep them coming back again and again, as well as trusting you more. 

How long does it take to see results?

This kind of stuff can take anywhere from weeks/months to see, but it is the most legitimate approach to helping your site’s pagerank improve as well as prevent it from ever being suffering downfalls from Google algorithm updates. I’ve said this many times before, but in the race for SEO rankings, the turtle will always win. 

I strongly recommend applying this method and avoiding using things like backlink packages at all costs. I promise you this is the best way to get it done. Another important thing to keep in mind is that many places that sell you their “SEO services” should not be used.

They are overpriced, many of their methods are outdated and most of their services may and will likely end up hurting your SEO than anything else. I’ve had this happen to me on more than one occasion to learn my lesson.

Once again, if you read this whole article, make sure you read the update on page rank here. Thanks.

  1. Hi Vitaliy, very good information. We all need better rankings in Google. I personally have 2 key words with a page one rank but they are low hanging fruit.

    • Actually having a few high ranked keywords is perfectly fine Walt, even if they are low hanging fruit. The traffic from these keywords, although little will lead to better rankings and higher page rank for your other posts/pages so you’re well on your way!

  2. Great advice here! I’m still trying to get up to page rank 1 but I must be close! After nearly 3 months of hard work and trying not to kick in my screen everything finally seems to be ramping up just a bit. I did decide to take on a rather hard niche but I knew that with time, I would start to see some favorable results. First page ranking here I come!

    • Competitive niches will certainly take more time than most to rank high Chip, and it can be VERY discouraging at times, believe me I know, but as I said in previous comments, one thing you can try doing is utilizing Youtube videos to try and speed up that process. As long as you’re doing all the right things and your niche is not too competitive, it’s just a matter of time before you see your page rank in the top 3 spots in the SERPS. Good luck!

  3. Hi Vitaliy, it is very useful info here and I will try to implement some of your ideas to bring more traffic to my site. I am new at internet marketing and learning from guys like you surely helps me save money and frustration. Keep the good work!

  4. Thank you for this, this was very helpful a few of these tricks will definitely help build traffic to my website particularly using you tube.

    • Absolutely Anton, but don’t overdo it either. You should always focus on quality content to be your #1 priority with building page rank. Just my 2 cents.
