Today I am going to write about Pageranks, what page rank is all about, how to increase your pagerank and importance of pageranks. So without wasting our time, let’s get started with it.
Tips to help you increase your pagerank
What is pagerank? Google uses pagerank to determine the importance of a web page and also how it is used to determine which page appears in search results. Pagerank is an algorithm used by Google to determine the importance of a web page by the number of links (back-links) it has. If a web page has so many links pointing to it that means its content is of great importance to so many people. So when someone searches for a keyword, Google uses the pagerank to determine the web pages to show in the search result. So Google uses numerical values between 0 to 10 to rank web pages according to its importance.
