PageRank =0 ?





mrwoody
Very Simple Question: since few days ago, Google can see my webpage and with just one keyword, my webpage is on the top of the google search (above other website with positive pagerank). But according to google toolbar, my webpage still has a pagerank=0.
Does anyone know why?

Thanks for your reply. The website is just a family photo album: very low traffic, but I am just trying to understand how google works.

I still don't understand. I thought that the page rank was somehow related to the order google choose for listing the websites. Why does my website appears before others with higher page rank?

I'm not really sure why it would do that.. is the keyword you search for really strange therefore not many sites will have it...

also do you have alot of links from other sites?

I do have a link from another website, but still it is strange.
If you try to search on google for: daphne paolo, you will see that it is above a webpage with pagerank=5.

Not one website mr woody, a large number of them

It means many websites must point towards yours

If such websites are at the top of google's search lists and are respectable then your ranking will improve

If such websites contain all illegal stuff and other c*** your ranking will go down

Sorry, scorpio, but I am not sure I understand.
First of all... nothing illegal, just family pictures.

Anyway my original question was not how to get a high pagerank (I know the formula more or less), but why my website appears before many other with high pagerank, although google toolbar still shows 0 as the pagerank for my webpage.

I think that the only reasonable answer is that google toolbar is not as updated as google own ranking.

Well it is only a mystry that google use its pagerank to decide the rankings of websites or not. Some seo experts believe that pagerank has a role to play in the google rankings while some believe that its does not. Google is silent or too secrative about its ranking algorithm. There may be possiblities that your page is more optimized for search engines than the page with higher pagerank. so your page has higher rankings than the page with a google pagerank of 5.

Its not that, the links you give to your website matters..

If your website has a link from a site which has a high pagerank then your pagerank will increase.

But certain sites have a negative rating(not pagerank) on google if they contain illegal porn stuff etc

If your site has a link from one o those sites, your ranking will go down but not your position on google search.

The way to increase the rankings is to make your page important.

That is, more websites must think your site is important and hence link to you.

It is like this:
You want your shop to be popular.
So
1. You can advertise all over town
2. Ask your friends to inform others by word of mouth

etc etc

These strategies are in the form of links in world wide web.

So when more people link to you, people will visit your site more often and hence your site will become important and oage rank will go up.

The best way to start is to exchange links with known friends who have a decent pagerank(even 0) provided they dont host any illegal sites as defined by google(e.g racism, harcore porn, illegal, gambling, promoting hatred)

So when this happens people who visit other pages will visit yours thereby making your page important

This goes on in a cycle

Hope this helps

Again, I really doubt that some porno/illegal website has a link to my website.
But anyway, if my website is at the top of google search, who cares about page rank? I though that they were strictly related.

Hi,

Quote:
and with just one keyword, my webpage is on the top of the google search


Errr... what keyword ?
I mean, if in your family album you have a paragraph about "Toad the ugly dog", or about your town (providing it's a very tiny small city), then Google may index your site as a totally relevant to this word, and make it appear first in its result pages.

No matter what score is your page's PR, if your document is about something (content, topic) that is not ALSO on 1, 59788545, 4547789455, 4545455 websites, then it will stand above the rest.

My 2 cents.

Err.. I wrote the keywords in some message before...
As I said, it is still above some high rank webpage.

Anyway, if I have a webpage with pagerank=n, with only one link to another webpage. The second pagerank will have pagerank=n (or greater).
