Happy new year to all my readers and friends, May this New Year bring newly found prosperity, love, happiness and delight in your life. I am writing this post on 01.01.09 , i.e. in new year. Though this is new year as per calender terms but for students like me this is not the new year. Students new year came when the semester ends after summer exams. The new year, i.e. 2009 will just change the writing practice in date format i.e. 2009 instead of 2008 and nothing else. But still one major change can be observed here.
Yes, one of the major change for this new year is the Google pagerank update. On 31 DEC 08 Google updated it Pagerank index. Pagerank is Google’s own ranking technology for deciding the position in search engine results. This blog get Pagerank 4 this update. In last update it was 3 and before that it was 2. TheChetan.com faced 3 Pagerank updates up till now and all are +ve with increasing in ranking. Google updates it Pagerank 3-4 times in year and this was the last update of 2008.
Apart from the main domain i.e. home page pagerank, i got much higher pagerank in few inner pages. One of my page has Pagerank 5. This page is my WordPress plugin WP-Copyprotect page. Another page to get higher Pagerank is Smooth scroll links plugin. Pagerank 4 is given to that page by google. Many internal pages have pagerank ranging from 3 to 0.
I did much work for achieving this pagerank, all those efforts are now infront of you all, after achieving PR 5 at one of my page. Now i am planning to start freelancing work for SEO.
Many people think that Pagerank is not related with traffic, but i personally think that “Higher the Pagerank more the traffic to your site”. I came to this conclusion after my personal experience. When TheChetan.com was on PR 3 the traffic was near to 200 Unique visitors per day, but now it is near to 500-600 Unique visitors per day with thousands of page views.
So whats your current position ?
