One of the most important ranking factors on the world wide web has got to be PageRank. You can find the PageRank using this free PageRank checking tool. The PageRank is Googles own way of determing the important of your site in a numerical way. It is based on many factors, most of which we are unaware of. Over the years people have speculated that certain things effect the PageRank of a website in different ways. What we do know for sure is that if we get caught trying to fool Google or any of the other search engines by being sneaky and doing things they are not happy with then your website will get penalised. When your website is your source of income then this is bad news.
Using The Free Pagerank Checking Tool
All you have to do to find the PageRank of a website is enter the URL below where asked. After you have entered the security code and hit enter you will be taken to a page that will tell you the currently known PageRank of the website entered. This will be a number between 1 and 10.
What Does The Numerical PageRank Tell Me?
Th number between 1 and 10 will tell you the current authority assigned to it by Google. It is also used by other websites as a guide to how well your website is trusted.
A website that is Google PageRank 4 is not double the power of a PageRank 2. The scale goes up logarithmically, so every time the PageRank number goes up 1 the power doubles. So…
- A PR2 website is double the authority of a PR1
- A PR5 website is 8 times the authority of a PR1
- A PR8 website is 64 times the suthority of a PR1
So you get the idea that as the number goes up the actual authority assigned to the site goes up a lot quicker.
Is Every Page On My Site The Same PageRank?
Very rarely. PageRank is actually assigned to each page rather than an entire website. So you will find that the main page for your site will get the highest PageRank and then feed this to the other smaller pages that come off it. A well designed website with links to all main sections from the home-page will spread the PageRank around the website effectively.
