Formula to obtain a high Google Page Rank

Google Page Rank (PR) is one of the foremost indicators about the popularity of a blog, website or a single web page. In fact, many advertisers or ad networks use the PR as the primary criterion along with traffic ranks to accept or reject publisher or blogger accounts while signing up. Due to the same reason, bloggers usually go gaga over the same in an attempt to maintain or increase their blogs’ PR status.

How many backlinks will it take?

It is a known fact that more backlinks from high PR pages will eventually result in an increase of your blog’s PR. But how many backlinks will it take for a blog to receive a particular Page Rank? The following table will give you some idea.

The table below (courtesy: TNX.Net) essentially have the public PR numbered from 1 to 10 along X and Y axes. The Y axis shows the page rank that you desire for and the X axis shows the number of backlinks it will take from pages with a particular PR (column header) in order to obtain the PR that you want. For example, for your blog to get a page rank of 5, you need just three backlinks from pages of PR 6 or have 101 backlinks from pages with PR 4 instead.

The above formula also explains the monetizing power of a high PR blog. Other than the advertisers, you can actually sell links from your high PR blogs to those bloggers who want to obtain similar PRs easily. In fact, I had written about the monetizing potential of the blogroll a few posts ago. Of course, Google can ban blogs that contains sponsored reviews and paid links but that does not prevent most bloggers and webmasters from monetizing the page rank.

Other Page Rank facts

  • The public page rank of web pages, as published by Google three to four times a year, is a number ranging from 0 and 10. But internally Google uses a value that is calculated on a real time basis to rank the search results and this real page rank is not an integer between 0 and 10.
  • As the public page rank is updated only once in a while, your current page rank is not necessarily an indication of your exact search ranking at a given point of time.
  • A lot of people tend to worry about the page rank of their home page (main URL) alone. In order to get the best search ranking for your content, you need to also have good PR for your other pages as well. The internal linking of your pages play an important role here.
  • If you have very good content, SEO friendly page structure and some good keywords, even with a PR as low as zero, your pages should be getting figured in the Google search results pages.
  • There could be several other aspects that are taken into consideration by Google to derive the final page rank.

  1. @Shirley, thanks… In fact, moving from PR4 to PR5 (and upwards) is considered a daunting task and is well explained by the chart. This may be only indicative as penalty matters are not considered.

    Thanks for spending time with my older posts :)

  3. is it true that you can get negitive PR due to having too many backlinks from free directories?

    • Sushie :

      Webber: i’m not the owner of this site but i want to give you a answer to your question: yes, Google can decreases your PR or even suspend/ban your site if you have too many bad backlinks (backlinks from sites which are considered as sandbox).

      Very good article, Ajith, i didn’t know about the numbers of backlinks to have to reach a certain PR but i think it is not very efficient because our PR can depends of the quality of the site where we create backlink. ^^

  5. sakthi :

    Hi,
    I have some doubt in the table.

    As per table, If I need to get PR4 means, I should get 101 backlinks from PR3 sites.

    In such case, those 101 PR3 sites should give links ‘ONLY’ to my site or it can share its link with many other sites?
    That is, Whether ONLY my websites link should be in those 101 PR3 sites or the PR3 sites can have more number of sites to give PR?

    • @sakthi, there’re more to Page rank calculation than the numbers on this table. This was only indicative and Google has started considering various other aspects of a page’s authority in deciding its page rank.

  6. I do agree, but it’s important visitors are able to find websites and pagerank “sometimes” does correlate with this. If a website has a high pagerank then it’s probably been linked to by fairly good websites therefore will get visitors.

    However, I do agree that it’s not the end of the world having no pagerank (or low pagerank) if the website still performs well.
