How to increase page rank for article itself?

Does anybody know how to increase page rank for article itself?

I just saw the ezine article with page rank 4.

How did he do that and I didn't know article itself can get a page rank...

    The articles carry the same weight as the site you submit your article too. For example if ezinearticles.com is a pagerank 6 or 7 your article will be a 6 or 7 also. Building backlinks to your article will help it stay longer in the search engines top pages etc.... But as far as page rank goes your article is only as good as the directory you submit it on.

    Ezinearticles.com
    Articlesbase.com

    These two I believe carry the best page rank of the most popular article directories.

      This is absolute nonsense - it will be no such thing at all!

      The internet, SEO in general and page-rank in particular are page-based, not site-based. :rolleyes:

        :rolleyes:Aaaah Alexa then tell me why articles rank so highly in the search engines? Do you think that same article submitted on a page rank zero site will have the same pull in the serps?

        No because articles carry the same weight as the authority article site you submit them too.

        You are right about page based in general but the reason they rank well is they are submitted on popular article directories that carry a lot of weight. So if they are optimized correctly with your keywords in the title, and in your content done properly. They will rank highly unless it is an extremely competitive keyword phrase

        Who cares about page rank anyways. Its all about your serp positioning and making money anyways. The rest is secondary! Pagerank is overrated. It does help in some instances, but overall its just Googles idea of the importance of a page.

          I didn't say that at all, Jay: please be kind enough not to put words into my mouth; thank you.

          I said simply that your statement "if ezinearticles.com is a pagerank 6 or 7 your article will be a 6 or 7 also" is entirely mistaken and utterly devoid of any factual foundation. And I'm still saying that, because it is.

          Your article will initially be a pr-0, as NY1 explains above.

          This is a widespread misunderstanding, and you're one of the people spreading it so wide. Sorry, but that's how it is! :rolleyes:

        Good call, Alexa.Has anyone ever plugged individual articles into Market Samurai, under the SEO Competition module? This is why articles 'typically' present with a lower PR than the actual host site.

    You know that one way back links is the most important element in increasing page rank of a url.It is also applied to your each article page/url.

    To increase page rank for a article,you just need to build quality back link as you do for your url.

    For this you can add your article Links to social bookmarking sites like Stumbleupon,Digg and redit etc.

    RSS feed must play a vital role in it.Rss feeds are one of the best ways of being indexed by search engines and getting backlinks.So submit your rss feed in diffrent rss submission services.In a word,more backlinks for your articles=more page rank for your articles.


    Thanking you
    Monsur

    PageRank is not the sole determinant in ranking articles high in search engine results.. There are others which I won't mention because Google itself incorporates over 100 factors in its SE algorithm..

    However, Alexa and entrepreneurjay, you can meet halfway with regards to your opinions because we cannot exactly determine whose opinion carries more weight because of the secrecy of Google's algo.

    I've been following the so called gurus' techniques in ranking web pages based on keywords, some of them gave me immediate positive results yet did not last long. Some of my keywords have been "dancing" between page 1 and page 5 despite applying the techniques these "gurus" taught.. Recently, I somewhat gave up on obsessing having to rank my keywords in page 1 of search results.. I just concentrate on publishing contents on my sites.. Lots of them.. Cheers, .

      There is no such thing as a compromise in factual matters.

      Alexa Smith is perfectly right.

      The name given to it is even self explanatory "page rank" and not "site rank". Unlike Alexa rankings which is site based.

      At best the individual article page gets a leverage from the rankings of the main page of the article directory but their page ranks are completely distinct.

    Build back-links to your article from high PR pages. Just keep in mind that PR doesn't get you SE traffic, relevancy does.

    If you want to know why an article has a high PR it is very simple to find out. Just research where the backlinks come from.

    You are going to find links coming from high PR sites, or many lower PR sites.

    You will want to research internal linking of EZA, too. They may be getting a nice PR boost by being a "most viewed" or other category leader which gives them more link exposure within EZA which will pass PR to the page.

    Chasing PR is really a bad game, though. Chase traffic.
