Google Webmasters Update Toolbar Page Rank

Google Page Rank
On the 6th of December 2013, the former “dormant” Google Page Rank metric saw an update for the first time since February 2013. This means Page Ranks will be monitored more closely in relation to links from reputable sites. Buying links, especially so close to the festive season, will negatively impact your websites page rank. Sites that were down have been affected negatively by this change.

What is the Google Toolbar Page Rank?

This feature is an algorithm used by Google’s web search engine to rank websites. Page Rank is a way to measure the importance of a website.

How does it work?

Page Rank works by counting the number and quality of links to a page to determine a rough estimate of the importance of the website itself. The assumption here is that the more important or relevant a site is, the more links they will receive from other websites.

Googlebot is an automated web spider that is used to count links and gather information on other web pages.

How Do I Increase my Websites Page Rank?

Think here of rather getting quality, reputable sites to link to you. By focusing on where your next quality editorial links come from, your real page rank will go up as well as the visitors to your website.
