Maryland Internet Advertising

Getting PageRank Without Getting Links

by rustybrick

The discussion was started by a webmaster who asked, how can his page have a PageRank score of four, when Google webmaster tools reports the page has zero links? The obvious answer is that Google is not reporting all the links yet and it is very possible the page has links, but just not being reported yet. But that might not be the full answer.

WebmasterWorld administrator, Tedster, feels that Google gives "mom and pop" sites an artificial PageRank boost, in some cases. Let me quote Tedster:

My assumption is that this unusual PR boost is one of the ways that Google helps "mom and pop" sites compete - something that Matt Cutts made a side comment about on his blog a few years ago. He never said WHAT Google does specifically, only that they do a few things.
It seems like many top names in the thread believe in this "artificial PageRank boost." The question is, what is the artificial part? Is it the score shown, how the score is made up, or how Google sees the page in terms of trust and popularity?

In any event, do you believe in the artificial PageRank boost? Take the poll below:

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the practice of optimizing your web site in order to increase natural search engine traffic. Proper SEO can be time consuming, complex, and costly... that is if you don't shop around.

Frederick Web Promotions has a sterling record: 100% of all our clients have Multiple Top Ten Organic Search Rankings, and we charge a fraction of what the other Maryland Internet Advertising firms charge.

It's been said that 90% of all Google Searchers and more than 90% of all other searchers will not click past the first set of search results. Why is that?

If Google thinks you're important enough to be listed in the top 10, that's good enough for most people. People KNOW that the 'sponsored' listings are paid advertising. The public operates under the assumption that Google is selecting the MOST important websites to be #1, #2 and so on.

It's not widely known that a well executed search engine optimization campaign can manipulate who gets to be #1
