What PageRank Are Your Internal Pages?
November 1, 2007
Recently I read a post on CashQuests.com titled Find The PageRank For Every Page On Your Site. I hadn’t yet checked the rankings of all my internal pages yet since the new PageRank update, so I clicked on over to the tool Kumiko listed. If you use the LivePR tool, you can see the rankings for all the pages of your site, not just your homepage.
My homepage got a PR3, which I already knew. Only one of my posts also got a PR3. All my other internal pages were either PR2, PR1, or had no ranking at all. One thing that I thought was weird were that some pages on my site that got a PR2 were some of my most unpopular posts or some weird pages, like the lost password login page. And then, my most popular pillar post, 75 Ways To Increase Your Site’s Traffic, which got the most backlinks and lots of attention, didn’t even get a PageRank. I’m still finding it a bit odd, but that’s Google for you I suppose!
After you check the rankings for your internal pages, I do recommend that you read Kumiko’s post. She informs us of an interesting concept about how can you make money online with your individual posts’ PageRank. She claims she does not condone it and will never implement it on her site, but it’s interesting nonetheless.
Apparently some people make money online by selling permanent links worth hundreds of dollars on their pages that rank nicely. Google would never approve of the tactic either, but if you want to learn more check out Kumiko’s post. Remember though – that is the evil, unethical way to make money online!
Let me know how you did in the most recent PageRank update, or any other ways to know of to make money with nicely ranked internal pages. I hope to do a lot better next time, so now I will be working harder on building links as well as traffic. Happy blogging, and keep making cash! :)
