Google PageRank Updated 2011

Google PageRank Update June 27, 2011

Google has updated its PageRank this week.  The last major Pagerank update was around January 20, 2011. So it has been around 5 months since the last one. Google used to follow a more predictable update schedule. But, in the past year or so their schedule has been less predictable.
You really never know with Google, but for most what you see is what you get.

Google describes PageRank:

PageRank reflects our view of the importance of web pages by considering more than 500 million variables and 2 billion terms. Pages that we believe are important pages receive a higher PageRank and are more likely to appear at the top of the search results.PageRank also considers the importance of each page that casts a vote, as votes from some pages are considered to have greater value, thus giving the linked page greater value. We have always taken a pragmatic approach to help improve search quality and create useful products, and our technology uses the collective intelligence of the web to determine a page’s importance.

Vab Media just went from a PR3 up to a PR5. We are really excited about this! Even more exciting is that two of our SEO clients Broadbent Construction and RSI Insurance went from a PR 0 all the up to a PR 4.
Please remember it is Pagerank, meaning each and every page can have a different rank. Generally your homepage or main index page will have higher rank than your inner pages and posts. But, occasionally an inner page,  such as a popular blog post will out rank your homepage. The more you update your site’s content the better.  Keep your readers in mind when deciding what to post next.  It also helps if people are commenting and linking to your blog posts. The new Google Panda is awesome!
