Okay… This is nothing new to anyone with even the slightest knowledge in SEO and Google. Further, I cannot take credit for this knowledge as it has been acquired from someone who I consider a very true friend: Griz, that would be you! But this information is what I learned well over a year ago when I took his humble advise to make a pot of coffee and do some reading. So I read for a few days. As much as I would like to direct you to his site so you can read too, I regret to say that it is no longer available.
Anyhow, to get to the point of this post — a point I am raising simply to clarify what I know to be fact — I’m letting those of you who don’t know, that Google page rank has nothing to do with where a given website ranks in the search engine results pages (SERPS). I know at this point there are many of you who think I’m crazy, or that I don’t know what I’m talking about. But before you get upset and simply leave this site, please look at the illustration below so I can prove that what I am saying is not a load of crap! I like facts, I share facts, and I welcome ANYONE who has evidence contrary to any of the facts as listed on this site to let me know. After all this is SEO and it is an ever evolving art that is liable to alter facts in some way or another.
As you can see there is a PRO site sitting in 1st place right on top of PR3 and PR4 sites! What’s even more amazing is that 6 out of the top 10 sites listed on the first page are a PRO as well. How does this happen? Backlinks! Now maybe you don’t care where your site is ranked in the SERPS? I wouldn’t believe that for a minute because you wouldn’t be reading this, would you? So for any of you who spend so much time trying to satisfy Google in the hopes of attaining page rank, it’s probably better that you spend your valuable time building backlinks and adding content to your site.
Now I will agree with the many resources who teach that spending too much time reading other sites’ content is no way to get credible backlinks, but a person has to dedicate some constructive reading time to first learn how to get credible one way backlinks, right? And I’ve done my share of reading, so now I write and share my experiences — paying it forward if you may…
