PageRank where it does make a difference
Last night on strikepoint the chatroom got a little heated over Pagerank, and I was asked if pagerank is so important why isn’t SAP.com a pr9 website, out ranking www.bssnj.com pagerank 4 website and www.businessoftware.com another pagerank 4 website for the Search Term Business Software Solutions
ok first off having more pagerank than your competitor doesn’t mean you will rank high than them for certain keywords. But it does mean that you will get more pages indexed in Google than your competitor and if you have a large website, it will keep you out of supplemental index.
example for Business Software Solutions
has around 49 pages some are supplemental already
has around 2,500 pages many supplemental
has 103,000 pages and I had to go to the last page before I found a supplemental page.
Ok this isn’t new it’s been like this for quite awhile, Pagerank for ranking purpose scores little in my books and shouldn’t really both you, but Pagerank for getting lots of pages indexed so that you can become the authority .. well that another game all together
ok I’m not going to pull these rankings apart for you I don’t think thats fair , but I will go out on a limb and say the #1 site is ranking due to it’s many Yahoo Directory listings, you will need to jump over to sitexplorer to see that I mean
so if you want to play seo detective I would start with http://uk.search.yahoo.com/siteexplorer/search?p=http://www.bssnj.com check out those Inlinks and the next time someone asks you is it worth getting Yahoo Dirctory listings, Point them to this post
