What's Your Google PageRank as of May 4, 2012?

There has been a Google PageRank update very recently. It started several hours ago according to some webmasters. I'm happy with the outcome of this update. I temporarily lost my PageRank (PR) when I registered Warayblogger as a domain name in January this year. Now I'm back to having that green thing in the PR toolbar again.

Did you know that the individual posts of a site are ranked individually? I checked my blog posts and saw a gray PR in some of my pages and a green PR in the other posts. My latest write-up, Waray Songs - The Naughty and the Nonsense is gray (0/10) while some others are green (1/10).


Whale Skeleton in Silago, Southern Leyte -- the First on Leyte Island is likewise green.

Do you want to see your Google PageRank? For quick results, use Check Your Page Rank's domain evaluation tool. There's no need to type an "anti-bot" code because the site does not require one -- that's what I like about this tool. Once you give your site's URL, you will see the number of Yahoo, Google, and Bing.com links for your site. It also determines the domain age of the site. However, you must ignore the Alexa Rank given by this tool because it's not accurate (as of this writing at least). Download the Alexa Toolbar to your computer or go directly to www.alexa.com if you want to get the current Alexa Traffic Rank of your site.

To check the Google PR of individual pages or posts, I recommend PRChecker.info. You may not feel very convenient with this tool -- you will have to hit two buttons plus type an "anti-bot" code before getting any information from the site -- but it's worth it. Did you notice that long URL in the photo above? That's the URL of one of my blog posts. Try this in the former tool and you will have an N/A result. It only accepts the URL of your homepage. So far, I haven't come across any site that performs what PRChecker.info does.

If your site is not ranked yet, remember what other webmasters and bloggers have been saying: the Google PR may be important, but it's not the "be-all and end-all" of online writing. Let's do what makes us happy. Let's keep writing and keep the fire burning. There's another PR update coming, anyway.

Thanks for the update. I still have no luck on page rank, but will keep on writing, hoping to gain more audiences and views. Happy writing.

Great work.. Congrats!
Power to you. Wish I had 10 blogs like that. More PR means more power.
I too was using prchecker.info in the first days when I learned about pagerank. Then it didn't used to ask for the anti-bot code. However still it was time consuming as I wanted to check more and more. Then I installed firefox addon for checking pagerank. It displays all the time wherever I am. That's why I love firefox so much. Firefox when combined with add-ons, makes you a power user.

You will discover a whole new world as you see pagerank everywhere and what it means. Pagerank is the heart of Google search engine. Its the first and prime thing for Google.

Sometimes I wonder if Panda was a joke. But then it has a different way of working. Because the search results are now better with Panda update.

@dee gold Hi Sis! Salamat sa pagdaan. Will check your blog again. Enjoy the summer break!

Rhodora said...

@LCM Linda That's the spirit of a true blogger. Just continue writing and the PR will follow.

Rhodora said...

@Raju Dinesh Thanks! About the Firefox add-on, I tried downloading it but it's no longer available. Since I already placed a widget for my blog's PR, I don't think I'll use it very often. You mentioned the Panda update, I read somewhere that there's also been a Penguin update lately. Google is getting more creative when it comes to coining these terms. :-)

Rhodora said...

@Manoel Carlos Alves I visited your blog, but I wasn't able to leave a comment because I didn't understand anything. I wish you would use the Google Translate widget to help your readers. Thanks for the visit.

I used to be really concerned with my PageRank because I used to write for others. This is very informative though, thank you!

xo,

Yeah this is helpful for you to get to the you in google rank. Within two months I ranked up in Google with PR2. But after I was busy and now I rarely post on my blog. So it's still in PR2. Your blog's template is also a very much considerable fact in ranking up in the PR. Soon I will post about that in my blog too.

I figured the other pages have their own ranks. That's why I try to put relevant KW in each of my post.

Thanks for this. All the best!
