Just like any other online marketer or blogger, I too have been obsessed with Google Pagerank of my domains. Good or bad, Google has been really successful in marketing this PageRank concept and got webmasters slog to keep their domains’ PR up (and not just ranking positions). In a way, that concept has helped many to cash in their domain authority.
Sometime back, I had kicked off some research projects related to Pagerank & Social ranks of blogs. Due to my career and regular job commitments, these projects were scrapped half way. However, I thought of opening up the completed part of my PageRank checker for public use and here you go.
About my PagerRank Checker
Okay, checking for Google Page rank of any site is no rocket science or anything cool. There may be numerous scripts and services out there that you can consume.
In addition to the page rank query, I have added some check points to see if a particular domain has a FAKE page rank (see the picture below). This algorithm still has some amount of work to do but it works in most cases.
I am hopeful of enhancing this to a full-fledged domain/blog appraisal tool, time permitting. Hosting it under an appropriate domain name is also in plan.
In the mean time, please check out the FREE PR Checker tool and let me know your feedback.
A word of caution: I am putting this domain under risk if the tool is over used (i.e. more than the several thousand queries allowed by Google per day) by my readers. If the usage goes beyond the permissible limit, I will be implementing a Captcha feature. Till then, please be ‘gentle’ with it.
And let me know, if someone has great ideas on how to rank a blog in real social/search authority terms so that in my free time I could work on such ideas. In fact, I had asked this question sometime back.
