Hello WW members,

I know it might be difficult but is there a way to lock the Page Rank for a site (at least the home page)?
Can we do (or rather not do) something to a site which has achieved a PR 5 or PR 6 that locks its Page Rank to a certain value and stays there as a constant without any change?

All inputs are welcome.
Thanks.

Doesn't that defy the point of pagerank entirely? ;)

I guess there is one way- you could link only from sites which you control, interlink them and make sure they stay exactly the same. Make sure there are no links which you arent in control of to any of the sites- I guess this way you could lock your PR at whatever number the above leaves you with.

But if the PR algo changed, one of the sites was down when the bot came along or you got an external link from someone elses site then it would change.

No. Google controls page rank and they often change their algorythm which can affect PR. I had a PR 5 index page which just got dumped down to PR3. No changes have been made in about 10 months to that page.

The Google PR algo is known to change or tweaked month to month.

That being the case, even if you never modify anything on your site, your are still subject to a new PR calculation, every month.

If you are happy with your current PR and are more interested in maintaining it than in attempting to increase it then obviously do not do anything risky.

But there is no way you can control the sources of your PR, which are the sites that link to you. There is a site that gave me several excellent links. The load on that (hobby) site went up, and to decrease it the owner made it a "members only" site. Googlebot chose not to become a member :) and I lost all the links :(
