As we all know Google updated the page rank that they give to websites. Some websites fell in rank and others increased.
Yesterday I was trying to figure out why Kezanari was still PR2?
Well I have a little check list of the things I done and a few things I could improve on and others I need to do.
But before I start I would like to state that page rank doesn’t really mean anything unless you’re building backlinks.
A high page rank doesn’t guarantee more traffic or sales that part is still down to you.
This is what I did
- Guest blogging
- Back linking
- Blog commenting
- Social bookmarking
- Blog syndication
- Fresh content minimum three posts week
- Got tons of comments on posts
- Low bounce rate
- High page views
- High avarage time on site
- H1, H2, title tags, descriptions blah blah blah all done
What I Can Improve On
- Page load speed
- Keyword density
- Social interaction
- Increase backlinks to my site
- Deep linking
What I Need To Do
- Extensive internal linking
- External linking to authority sites
They could be a few reasons why my page rank didn’t rise and they are:-
- Not enough pages/blog posts
- Poor interlinking and external linking
- Domain name was dormant for two years before I started using it at the end of last year (Sept)
What I Have Learnt
SEO cannot be the only strategy you use to grow your website because at the end of the day who knows what Google is looking for.
You have to use different methods to grow your website like engaging with your audience and making a difference within your niche.
It’s Not All Bad News
A lot of the inner pages within kezanari rose from NA to PR 2 what is quite good. But like I said above the growth of this website is not solely on SEO so if my website ever fell out of love with Google I would still receive traffic from other sources.
Another great thing is that I have helped so many people with their websites and online success that it has been very rewarding.
I must admit I really enjoy answering your comments and queries.
What About The Future
Well I will continue to grow this blog until it becomes one of the main blogging/helpful blogs on the Internet. This can take some time but I will get there in the end with your help obviously.
