I have 2 questions regarding the subject; how to raise page rank of a site. I hope these are not too silly to ask, but I am always looking to learn and thought that after my searches, asking would be the next logical step (and it might help others, too).
1. What is the best way to raise page rank of a site that is around 3-4 years old... at the moment the site has anywhere from 600 - 2000 backlinks (depending on where you look) varying from PR0 to PR9 (only a few with PR9). The site itself has been at PR2 for a couple years.
2. What is the best way to raise page rank of a new site? Whether WP blogs or static sites (with around 10-15 pages of relevant content). I have not worked at backlinking too much to these new sites yet. Before I do, I just wonder if there is a method to backlink to raise PR quicker - and I do understand that age of the site will count.
I am guessing the answer is probably to get a variety of backlinks with all different PR's and have good content. But, I just wonder if there is a quicker way to raise PR (that someone would actually share with us all ) , like to only backlink to high PR sites or to only use web 2.0 properties, etc.
If anyone with experience has any ideas they wouldn't mind sharing, I would greatly appreciate it.
