For some of us doing SEO, Google Pagerank is one of the most important signs of SEO success. Of course, Pagerank isn't the most important thing in the world, but still there are various reasons why you might want to have a high PR website.
I just wanted to share a simple method that I used to bring a new webpage from PR 0 to PR 6 with just one or two days of work.
Step 1: Find a High PR Website
In order to get high PR fast, you'll need a backlink or two from a high PR website. Look for a high PR website in your niche that might be a good candidate for linking back to you. For this project, I found a PR 8 website. Also, I target some PR 7 pages on this PR 8 website.
Step 2: Study the Website
Study the website well. Go through it and understand the posting habits of the website owner. Try to understand the type of content that he enjoys linking back to. Or try to find opportunities that you can get a backlink from his site.
Step 3: Prepare the Content
Once you understand the type of content that is loved by the particular website you are targeting, work hard to create extremely great content (or extremely terrible content depending on the site) that that website will enjoy talking about. For this project, it took me 3 to 4 hours to create the content.
Step 4: Drive Traffic to the Content
I bought some cheap traffic from various sources in my niche, and sent a ton of quick traffic to the content I created. This is the key. If your content is good enough, people will start sharing your content all over the web. My content was good enough, and traffic exploded to 10,000 to 20,000 visitors in a day.
Step 5: Earning Backlinks
Once your traffic explodes, and if your content is shareable, you can expect a ton of people linking back to your site. Make sure you have social sharing buttons and floating sharing buttons to make it easy for visitors to share your content. They will also allow visitors to see how many times your content has been tweeted or liked so that new visitors will be influenced to share your content and people will consider your content popular.
Step 6: Subtle Notifications
Subtly get the website owner with the high PR website to notice your content in one way or other. Whether through Twitter, or Facebook, or some other methods that will reach him. If you've analyzed his habits correctly, chances are he'll like your website. If you've gotten good numbers of tweets and likes on your social sharing buttons, even more so.
Step 7: Wait For Backlink
Wait for the next post that will go up on his site, or updates to the existing post that you are targeting on his site. If you did it well, you should have your well-deserved backlink. The whole process took me just one or two days of time from start to finish.
Step 8: Wait for PR Update.
With the high PR backlink (PR7) obtained, along with the wide diversity of backlinks coming from all the sharing and social traffic, the next PR update saw my brand new page going from 0 to PR 6. I didn't do anything else to the content apart from the steps above which took a few days.
Step 9: Build Relationships
Thank the website owner or the website contributor for linking back to your website. And you may start developing a relationship with them for future developments if you think you like their work...
Step 10: Continue Forward
Continue creating great content for your site and watch it explode quickly in the SERPs...
