The Only Guide You Need To Boost Your Google Page Rank

Hey Friends,

I am getting many emails from my fellow bloggers and friends asking for some good tips to improve the Google Page rank so I thought of compiling those tips in an article and share it on my blog. Google adopts this PR technology to determine the rank of websites.

Before I start with the tips on How to get good PR/Page Rank I would first like to explain what Google PR actually means.


What is Google Page Rank

Google when gives a Page Rank to a website or a webpage, it actually shows how reputable that webpage or website is. Google has its own terminology and algorithm web metric to judge the reputation of a website.

The page rank provided is based on several different parameters which include outgoing links, incoming links, and visibility of links, content quality and many other factors.

Let me make it more explicable –

If your webpage have 100 back links but those are not leading from high PR site, Google will rate you lower than the webpage having 20 links leading from high PR site.

I hope you understood what I want to say!

All you want to say is that Quality Matters, Not Quantity.

Google Page Rank Equation

Google uses a special equation to calculate the Page Rank-

PR(A) = (1-d) + d(PR(t1)/C(t1) + … + PR(tn)/C(tn))

tn and t1 here means pages linked to the page

C means number of outbound links in that particular page

D stands for damping factor.

Now I must proceed with my techniques to improve the Google Page Rank

Tips to get high Page Rank

Write Quality Content- This is the first tip that I would like to include in my list as I feel that we blog for our readers and not just for Google. However Google also values quality content. When your blog post is well written and include the exact information, readers would automatically connect to it will link their own blogs to your blog.

1. Get Incoming Links from High Quality Same Niche Sites – Now when you have high quality content in your blog, half of work is done. You next need to get the incoming links from the high rate same niche websites.

Now the next question popping in your mind would be ‘How to get the quality incoming links’

So the answer to this question is through ‘Guest posting’ and ‘Blog Commenting’.

Guest Posting Guest posting is one of the best ways to get the high quality backlinks for your webpage. Many leading blogs, in fact most of them are now accepting the good quality guest posts and allowing 1-2 do follow links towards your blog.

I at iTechcode also accept the guest posts and provide 2 do-follow links in the author bio. I guess the backlink from my blog will help you in some way.

Blog CommentingBlog commenting is another best way to get high quality backlinks for your blog. Make sure that your comment is sensible and properly relevant to the post you are commenting on. Remember that you must comment on the blog providing the do-follow links for your blog.

2. Maintain Outbound Links

Just creating the inbound and outbound links is not enough, you have to maintain them. Outbound links are equally important and play a very eminent role to improve the Page Rank. More are outbound links in your website more will be the authority of your website on that particular topic.

3. Submit Articles in Good Article directories

I often do this. I keep on submitting some posts in good article directories and trust me it works. The article directories give a do-follow links for your blogs in return. This helps in increasing your Page Rank and traffic too.

4. Regular Site update

Google hates inactive blogs and so if you want a good Page Rank for your website; keep updating your blog regularly. Google keep on crawling the websites and if it notices no updates, it leaves a negative impact of your blog.

5. Social Sharing Brings Good Exposure

Social sharing is an inseparable part of blogging. Social media is the best mode to publicize your blogs worldwide. It not just brings you huge traffic but also make your website popular and recognized. Highly popular websites get a good Page Rank from Google.

6. Internal linking of your WebPages

If you have noticed my blogs carefully, my every post is interlinked with my other blog posts. I always try to give the things ready hand for my readers. Interlinking of posts give me more page views and also give my readers easy navigation. It increases the blogs reputation in Google terminology which further helps you to get a higher Page Rank.

7. Loading Speed Of Your Website

The world is busy and so no one has time to wait for your site to load, not even Google. If your website is not loading with speed the reader will move on to other site which may increase the bounce rate and decrease your Page Rank. Try using a SEO optimized fast loading theme for your website. Deactivate and delete the unwanted plugins from your website. Showing excerpts instead of full posts on homepage also helps the site to load fast.

8. Submit your site on RSS Directory

RSS means Really Simple Syndication and thus submitting the website on RSS Directory helps greatly in improving Google Page Rank. Here is a list of some good RSS Directories.

9. Theme Matters

Theme, layout and design of your website matters greatly; and thus I advice to maintain a single theme and design for your website. I know that we have to bring some changes with time, but that’s OK. Settle with one theme and trust me this works in bringing your PR up.

This was my random list of tips to increase Google Page Rank, hope you all agree with me. I would love to know if you guys are using some other tips to get a higher page rank.

Feel free to share your own tips on our comment section.

In the end I would like to mention that following the above mentioned techniques my blog, iTechcode has achieved great reputation.

Right now i am out of my home town, publishing my brand new article from cyber cafe. Please help me to promote the article if you really enjoyed it.

Anyway, I’ve been doing enough blog commenting to get some respect and interaction with my other fellow-bloggers.

    Keeping out bound links and analyzing the quality of the link is a must factor to improve the page rank or not penalized by Google. Commenting and guest posting will work for better page rank.

  10. Hi Amit
    I was very happy and surprised when I found that my blog was promoted from a PR3 to a PR4 Blog at the last Google Page Rank update in August 
    I do a lot of commenting on other blogs and also try to be active in different kind of Tech and blogger forums. Many of them let me add a signature with a backlink to my blog. I have also done a couple of guest posts on others blog as well. I do believe that being active on Social Networks also have a big impact on building back links for a blog.

    • Congratulation Thomas for Getting PR4. Yeah Commenting is Good For Getting Backlink within short time but be sure try to comment on DoFollow Blog which will help you to get some Link Juice….
      Now a days Social Sharing becomes vital part. Its bring more exposure too.
      Thanks for dropping your comment. Keep Visiting.

      RSS Dir where you can submit your Feed and your latest post will get indexed automatically and Article Dir is where you can submit your article and you can place your link which will help you to increase your backlink…
      Here is some Article Dir :

  14. Mike Howg says:

    Thanks for the great tips Amit. Because of this guide I’m going to check out some RSS directories. I’ve actually never heard of doing that before and it seems like a really great idea.

  15. Good tips! My gut says the RSS Syndication might not have a big bump in PR, but in fairness, I don’t try it so I can’t claim to be an expert.

    In fact, I think I’ll look into it as an experiment myself. Thanks for a good suggestion!

  16. Hi Amit,
    What an awesome post about boosting your Google page rank.You have given every information from the scratch.I wish all who has look into this post has got some good and brief knowledge.

  17. Thanks for the great tips. I am very interested in learning more about the right steps to pursuing Guest Posting as a strategy. As Rahul says, I would be interested in finding some good quality article directories. Thanks, Suzanne

  18. PrIyAnGsHu says:

    Awesome tips Amit. I have been trying hard to get a better PR for my blog and have been mantaining all these things since long. May be I can get my Pagerank boosted in the next update.

  19. Arbaz Khan says:

    Great post Sir,
    I am very happy to see that my blog got a PR 3 with some simple steps that I implemented.
    I would try to follow your points to get even better PR in the next update. 😛

  20. Great tips Amit. Do you think the RSS directories are still a good technique post-Panda? I keep seeing conflicting opinions.

    • Yeah You are Right Adam its Conflicting Opinions but for me its working fine, Bcz We are getting Link from those directories which is always helpful. Thanks for Visiting iTechCode. Keep Visiting.

  21. All of the suggested tips are great. Think guest posting on high PR blogs is the game changer..

  22. Excellent post. Page rank seems to be a difficult nut to crack. I had a pr3 and then it dropped down to a 2 even though I have more links. All of them hand built I don’t understand it.

    Would you consider SEO traffic to be more valuable than referral traffic?

  23. Vivek KUmar says:

    Great post Amit. Forum Posting and submitting sites to rss syndicating sites can bring lots of traffic and good link juice. But I think pagerank doesn’t have any affects on search result positioning.

  24. Pardeep Dagar says:

    Article topic and matter is nice but two thing i don,t understand
    1) Equation of page rank you have explained well but can,t understand and 2) what are google article directories where to submit
    Cool Article 🙂

  25. Arun rana says:

    really helpful article Amit , Hope will get some pr in next PR update

  26. Ashwani Ahlawat says:

    Hi Bro,
    I think after following your tactics hope I’ll get PR2 or PR3 next time of PageRank update.
    Thanks for sharing with us. 🙂

  27. Hi Amit. Most of the points mentioned by you in this post were very much obvious to me, except for the last one – “Sticking to a permanent theme”. Webmasters who are in a habit of frequently changing the overall layout of their websites, not only irritate the loyal visitors but also the search engines !
    Great Post 🙂

  28. Nice tutorial mate it helps others to understand the google page ranking system. Now it’s essential for us to gain backilinks from not just high pr sites but also authoritive sites too. Thanks.

  29. Ehsan Ullah says:

    The incoming links with specific keyword from high PR blogs in similar niche is awesome way to get high PR quickly and of course it is possible with guest blogging.

  30. Erick Trejo says:

    I just have a doubt… Google has changed this equation twice in the last year, the famous Panda and Penguin algorithm…. and in the last change Google made an improving because Google knows that there are many ways to manipulate the backlinks (buying, link exchange, etc) so now you cannot just have thousands of links pointing to your website with one or two keywords; this time Google will check that the link comes from a website related with the link pointing and if the keywords show in the text of the content or not. With this change many websites with thousands of links were punished and some were banned from Google. So, before start buying or asking link exchanges, make a little research about the Google Penguin. Or follow step by step this guide and don’t try to take a short way.

  31. Osho Garg says:

  35. Lakhyajyoti says:

    Great post. My blog is just one and half month old and its PR is 0. I’ll strictly follow your tips to improve my blog PR. Thanks for sharing.

  36. Meena Thakur says:

    Well i have a very different theory on this.PR is calculated relatively.From what i found from the SEO campaigns i handle , the site with the niche with low competition is more likely to get a good PR then a site with large competition.So what that mean is its relatively difficult to get a PR in tech niche as compared to “how to train a dog” niche.

  37. Thanks Amit for your valuable tips.. Currently my blog’s home page has PR 1, and I really need to work on this aspect… Hope I would be able to follow the above tips…

  38. Chiranjeev says:

    Well written Amit,

  40. Really many awesome tips that you have shared Amit bro. From now I will follow all your tips and hope I will get a good PR in the next update. Thanks Amit bro for such beautiful post.


    Hahaha, I just needed this after today’s Page Rank Update. You always act like a savior. Thanks Amit 🙂

  42. Matt Smith says:

    Great tips Amit!!!

    I know Google just updated their PageRank scores today, so I’m sure many people will find this useful.

    Site speed is a factor that many people overlook. Not only does a slow site put off regular people, but Google doesn’t like sites that take ages to load. Site speed has a bit effect on pagerank and SEO ranking in general.

    Another factor that many sites often overlook are internal links. Internal links not only help people to navigate round your site easier, but it allows search engine bots to crawl your site more effectively. The easier a site is to crawl, the more of your posts and pages will get indexed.

    Great post Amit. 🙂

  43. Clair Trebes says:

    Hi Amit,

    This is a really informative post and something I’ve taken away many valid points that I can put into practical use on my own website to hep improve its page rank.

    SEO to me is still such a foreign area that I want to learn and absorb as much as I can to get my head around it all, so reading things like this is really helping!

    Great job!

  44. Ravi Verma says:

    Great Post !!! Really enjoyed while reading it. I would like to give some light on using the theme. If all you have done properly but you are using a theme which takes more time to load and not user friendly , then the chances for getting PR reduces due to speed issue.
    I will recommend to use a Responsive theme that fits in every screen. and loads faster.

  45. Stacey Kaufman says:

    Hi Amit,
    Great article information!! I really like your layout and theme you are using on your site. I am in the process of building my site and would like to have something with a clean look like yours. What theme are you using?

    Thanks again!
