PageRank Mysteries

I've been to two sites that give me a peek at what my current PageRank is. Unfortunately, when I've checked it has been zero. Yes, a big fat 0! Not only am I disappointed, but I've been trying to figure out ways to get it up. I realize that I have to get a lot of backlinks and I'm not sure if what I've done is working. So, I wanted to check again today.

The two sites that I went to about a week ago are Google PageRank Prediction and MyPageRank(dot)net. This week I couldn't even get those sites to calculate when I tried to see if my rank was up. To test the sites, I put in someone else's URL and I saw their rank. (I'm very jealous!)

Does anyone know why I can't get those sites to work now? Do you know of any other sites that will tell me my PageRank? Also, what have you done to increase your PageRank?


  1. Unfortunately I'm not one with an answer...just one with some of the same questions as you. When you get the answers please share them.

    Sorry I've been missing in action lately. I took a break from visiting all my favorite blogs but I'm back again today visting them all. Getting back into the swing of things.

  2. I hear ya! I wish I knew of wayys to get my page rank up, too. Like Kim above me, if you figure it out, please share. lol

    RYC: Yep, migraines suck, big time. Ugh! Maybe this one will be gone tomorrow...I hope. Thanks for the kind thoughts and for the compliment.

  3. I googled page rank predictors and put your url in and some on them gave me a 0 and some of them said it wasn't available. I wish I could help you.

    I tagged you for a meme when you get the chance.

  4. Petula,

    Google recently updated their page ranks, and a lot of people saw a change in their page ranking. Apparently, for blogs/sites with sponsored posts, google tracks them down and give them a ranking of 0! Slowly, your rank will go up again, but it is something about google and paid/ sponsored posts. Even if you are having a ranking of 7, and you start paid post, google will downgrade your ranking to 0. I am not sure why they do it, but they are doing it.

    Don't worry, with time, your page rank will go up again. Mine went up to 4 from 3, but if I have a tracking URL from a sponsored post, my blog will go down to a 0 too. It's just their system. Nothing wrong with your blog as such. It will take time to move up, but it will eventually.

  5. A post I did in my blog on April 25

    Have you thought about changing your format to make it easier to read?
    As you can see by the comments I am not alone in thinking that.

  6. Hi Pet
    Like Farah said my ranking went down also from 2 to 3.
    I was also wondering if it was something I said?? :o)
    But now I know it wasn't and I am in good company.

  7. Hi,

    Try this site to see your PR :

    Google PR is very mysterious. It's happen to me also from PR3 to PR0. I had PR3 only for 2,5 weeks. But thanks GOD, now my PR back again.

    Btw, I am running You and Your children tag.

    Hope you can join with me.

  9. Hmmm? IDK... I checked someone's blog who does quite a few paid posts and they have a 3. I hope what you're saying is true and it goes up cause I don't get nearly as many paid opps as the one I checked.

  10. im a big fat 0 too P. Hopefully the ranks will go back up again soon- fingers crossed :(

  11. Download googletool bar. It will give you an accurate pagerank everytime you go to a website. I am using it now.So you don't need to go on keying the url just go to the website. Mine is 2 at the moment. But I don't put high hopes for it to stay there long.

    Do this Petula,this is what you need to do if you want to make better money from your blog.Get a domain of your own. Make a new blog. Sometimes once your PR is slapped by the Big G, it would be hard to go up, but nothing is impossible. Some even get their PR back, some once fallen they stay there.

    Big G take away PR from those who are doing paidpost, because paidpost are considered as spamming their search engine.


What's up men & women of my world! I am all a-giggle that you decided to comment. You're what make this world go 'round... ya know? This "world." I love you! Smooches. :-)
