I went to the site today to see PR5. Pretty good for a site that I have never promoted, that logs dont any refers from. And that Google or Yahoo show any backlinks to.
I did submit via hand to Google, but nowhere else is it found.
Why would it have such a high pagerank? Anyone else experiencing things like this?
and a PR of five? Even if Google had found some it had calculated but wasn't yet showing, Yahoo should at least show a link or two I'd imagine. I know back in the day, a site had PR out of the box, but haven't seen that is a severely long time.
Now, does the site show internal backlinks? I mean, that would at least be a backlink or few if it did - but if none of the pages on the domain have an inbound, how would the subpages have any "oompf" to pass on?
This has happened to me a few times when I bought domains from gandi and did not publish the content for a few weeks.
About three weeks later googlebot then spidered the site, it is a large site and the internal page links/anchor text is what I think was taken into consideration to get a PR 5, in other words your linking to your self.
Nothing underhand was done to the site just clean seo work.
This is common if you registered the domain and did not publish content for a few days. Many registars will redirect those domains to an error page. This error page has links pointing to it.
I have seen the exact same thing at least three times. Specifically when unparking a domain and giving it some space of its own, it takes a share of the page rank from the old master domain it was once parked against. Things settle down after a couple of updates though and the PR gained then disappears.
Why is this thread on the front page? Go to google and type in "+www.domain.+com" you will find your backlinks.
I never tried that before and while it worked on my PR6 sites, the PR 4 ones showed no backlinks outside their own domain.
plus, the PR6 ones did not show each other, even though they both link to each other.
