Getting High PageRank Links – An Overlooked Factor
Getting maximum number of high pagerank links is the dream of every blogger. There’s no doubt in the fact that you can supercharge your own pagerank only if some high pagerank blogs relating your niche point out to you.
For this bloggers and webmasters adopt different techniques to get links from others. This includes articles, forums, social media marketing and blog commenting etc.
I’ll talk about article marketing i.e. submitting your articles to high pagerank directories. Most of the bloggers search for only high pagerank article directories totally overlooking their Alexa traffic ranking. They are in a notion that if their article is published in such high pagerank article directories they will surely get the benefit of that high pagerank link.
Well you are overlooking one most important thing. That is the pagerank which you checked for a directory, it is for its homepage. Of course you are not given link for your blog on the homepage by any high pagerank article directory. Your article will be published in a specified category on some inner page of the directory with your blog link present in your resource box. Now what is the pagerank of that particular page of the article directory? See the difference below:
Check the pagerank of the homepage of the article directory and see the first article which is about Drainage Systems. Now see the page on which this article is published
The inner page where the article is published has pagerank 0. This shows that you selected a pagerank 4 article directory and submitted your article to it. When it was published, you got link from pagerank 0 page. So never ever think that if you are sending articles to some high pagerank article directory, you will be benefited with the same pagerank
Yes, the pagerank of your specific article page may increase after sometimes. This is because all the popular article directories have excellent traffic ranking, so lot many people may share and bookmark your article, which will surely result into pagerank increase. This is the only way you will get some pagerank benefit from such directories.
Now what can be concluded from this discussion? That you should not get carried away by only seeing the “high pagerank” of any article directory or blog. However this doesn’t means at all that you stop submitting articles to article directories or commenting on blogs. The simple formula for it can be to keep posting but without any dreams of overnight increase in your blogs pagerank
