3 Reasons your blog’s PageRank isn’t Increasing

You Are Here

Achieving a high Pagerank for a blog is a dream of every blogger. But sometimes, even after doing some necessary things, you can’t achieve the required Pagerank. There must be something wrong, right? Let’s see.


What is Pagerank?

Pagerank, in simple definition, is a link analysis algorithm introduced by Google in 1998 and is scaled in between 0 to 10.

Basically, Pagerank tells Google which website will rank higher in the search engines and deserves more importance. The higher the Pagerank, the higher will be the placements in the search results.

So because of this, it has remained the hottest topic among all the bloggers and webmasters.

How can achieve a good Pagerank?

The answer is quite simple. The more number of incoming links you have, the higher are the chances of getting a high Pagerank. Mostly your incoming links must be dofollow to get a good result.

Are incoming links only responsible for Pagerank??

It’s a straight no. As I said above, incoming links are responsible in deciding your blog’s Pagerank, but not every time. If that was the case, then why Pagerank drops for many bloggers?

For getting good incoming links and thus Pagerank you must concentrate on these factors.

1. Significance of incoming links

Google is not only just a search engine; it’s like a detective. It keeps all the information of all the websites. It scans and crawls every website each and every second and keeps the records in its database. It also makes proper categories of forums and websites – quality websites and websites with poor quality content.

So if a blog with a good PR say PR 2 links to your blog, then Google spiders are forced to respect your blog and it will crawl your blog more often. In the same way, if you got a link from a higher Pagerank site, then your reputation in the eyes of Google will increase.

You must have incoming links from a site with high quality because then only will you be able to achieve a high PR. Try to avoid links from low quality sites.

2. Balance of incoming and outgoing links

Don’t just build incoming links. Your blog must have external i.e. outgoing links as well. IF you have more incoming links and no outgoing links then Google spiders will think that it was automated process, which is not genuine.

Having outgoing links wherever necessary makes your link building look natural. Also don’t just rush for dofollow backlinks; also make some nofollow backlinks. Many search engines treat nofollow also as dofollow. Moreover it looks a lot natural.

3. Use of current Pagerank

You got a good Pagerank for your blog. Congratulations. But it can even drop if you go the way that Google prohibits. Like if you start selling links on your blog to link builders, then you are violating the rules set by Google Pagerank team and thus your Pagerank will decrease. Risking your blog’s Pagerank for some dollars is not a good bargain. Always play the game safely keeping the rules In your mind.


Don’t just panic around in order to increase your Pagerank. Provide your readers some thing valuable and you will see ranking of your blog increasing with every update.
