Okay! We are back.
Now if you are a beginner to internet marketing follow on and learn a valuable free lesson. Let us share with you how things really work on the internet.
Firstly a little pre-amble. We stopped placing content on Allan and Dawn because we were doing other things. Also when we were placing content regularly, promoting keywords was not done in any order and we didn’t spend much time backlinking. Search engine optimization was haphazard to say the least. Certainly we have never agonized over trying to get page rank. We just kept adding information that might help newcomers.
Anyway while we have been away working on other sites for the last three months Google has quietly come along and slapped a Page Rank 2 on it. So what you say! Well PR2 certainly isn’t a PR3 – but it is better than a PR1. Your page rank gives you some authority when Google is trying to decide where they will place you in the search engine ranking page (SERP’s) for your keywords. Please understand though that page rank does not beat good content. A site with lower page rank can figure higher in the serps if it has great unique content.
Now the good thing is that you can actually use the PR of one site to link to another site and pass what is called a bit of link juice. If you have a new site and you can make reference to the same topic between sites then it’s like giving your new site a bit of a leg up.
So how does that affect a newcomer who may not even understand some of what has just been said here. Firstly get yourself a blog set up. We have a free guide of how this is done. Then start writing, writing, writing. Don’t know how to write? Read some of our earlier posts because it doesn’t matter if you are not an accomplished writer. The secret is to simply keep adding content.
As you gain confidence then venture out and look at some other blogs. Start putting some comments on other blogs and start chipping away because that’s what it takes.
