Getting back lost pagerank

Discussion in 'SEO' started by sm9ai, May 14, 2008.

    Hi,

    I have a site, used to have a page rank of 4, now it is 0. I think it was naughty and sold links or something.
    SEMrush
    Anyway I then bought the site and it ranks very well. But still displays pr0, is there anyway to get this back? I don't intend to use it to sell links but when I sell the site in a few months or so it would be nice to have it.

    Any ideas?

    I don't think PR matters much if the site is getting good ranks. It will get better with time.

    Well, remove all the links, in-content links and things like that and then prey.

    the only way to get it back is to wait for the next official PR update...while waiting, you might want to build up more links to your site so that you will expect more of a good result.

    If you have paid links in your site then remove them.

    May be you need to do a re-inclusion request

    google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=35843

    And wait for the next update.

    So what if it is PR0. If it ranks well, why do you care what PR it is?

    Building more incoming links is important. If you wish to grow the site and improve its rankings, you should keep getting new links in over time. And don't worry about the PR, unless you plan to sell ads again.

    well if u have a high pr it makes yours site look better and it is a lot easier to buy and sell advertisement.
    having a pr 0 and good rank is not as good as having a pr 4 site and good rank :D
    it all matters about if u want to spend the time or not

    You should continue to build high quality backlinks, you are ranking
    well in the serp that's a good thing, your pr may be back at the
    next update, you should probably wait until your site regains it's
    pr before you sell it.

    Better put a better content to your site, then even if you get few but really good and strong PR backlink, you will surely gain your PR.

    But you still wait for the next PR update, in order for the new PageRank to show (if it is not zero again).

    Write a nice email to google, explaining that you have abide with the google guidelines, and there's no trace of link selling : ))

    You can see what I wrote to Google to claim back your PageRank :) I was in the same situation as you several months ago.
