Frequently Asked Questions

Que: What is Google PageRank?
Ans: Enter a list of URLs (use 'www' for best results). The results will have the Google PageRank value, a number between 1 and 10 for each url (ie - 6/10). This means has a Google PageRank of "6" out of a possible "10".

Que: How come it takes so long for Google to assign a high pagerank value?
Ans: Pagerank assignment can easily take 6 months or more before your site gets a good PR assigned (typically PR4 or higher) it's a measurement of past performance and new domains will likely have no history with the search engine.

Que: How do I use the Google PageRank Report?
Ans: Google PageRank, also referred to simply as "PR", is the number between 0 and 10 that Google assigns a url. The PageRank value is based on the number of incoming relevant links you have to your site, which have a Google PageRank value of 4 or higher (PR4+). They may take other links into account in their algorithm, but those that are relevant and have a PR4+ are the going to help you the most.

It is a general consensus that the higher your Google PageRank, the easier it is to get into the top results in Google. Also of note, it is increasingly more difficult to jump up a point in PageRank value than it was from the last jump. For example, it's fairly easy to get a PageRank 4 with a few links, but a PageRank 5 requires many more links. A PageRank 6 requires hundreds of links, and so forth.

Que: Can anyone recommend some good affiliate programs?
Ans: Google Adsense is a good place to start for newbies...also Yahoo has a competing product that has virtually identical ad units to what Google offers.

There are also some other affiliate programs out there which can help convert your traffic to dollars, euros, or rupies. Some of the more aggressive ads are contextual popups, like IntelliTxt and Kontera.
