keep building links, or buy them in

Get a magazine or newspaper to do an article on you, and have it include a link to your site. Many online magazines/newspapers have high PR that passes along. Plus, there's free publicity in the article...

Why do you want pr 6?

IMHO pages have not been ranked by pr in over a year.

Anyway, the way to increase pr is get more links especially from pages with high pr. Also, dont forget to submit to the directories like dmoz.

Or if one really god page is linking to you - try and help that page out. It is what Reagan would have done.

A really god page? Like vatican.org, or what?

(Sorry, couldn't resist...)

well even better if you can find that. I haven't been to bed in a while :)

The vatican does do SEO - look at their meta tags :)

Oh, it's vatican.va - Meta-tags look OK but not excessive. Anything special you wanted to point out? Btw: I recently read an article about them. Their Internet departmunt is run by a Nun. No kidding.

Hmm... pretty off-topic, isn't it?

Well yes - no I just think that they want to attract for all those keywords is kind of amusing. I don't think there is much chance they will get beaten in the rankings - and I assume they are just doing it to "help" the engines.

Yes it is off topic a little, but the main idea is still good - plug the people that are helping you.

Say the Vatican is linking to you. Maybe someone out there is linking to the wrong domain name - or an outdated one. You write the person and say - FYI - your link pointing to the vatican is out of date - it should be blahblahblah.

This works especially well if someone up the chain is an educational institution. They don't want to look like idiots and I have seen them try to link to stuff on their C:/drive. A little helping hand will help you out as well. Of course if the others are your competitors - then you have something to think about.

This happens much more than you would expect.

The vatican has an error on it:

[vatican.va...]

One of the links on their doesn't work.

Magnum Matrimonii Sacramentum

If that somehow influenced your site - a little note to the WM would probably be greatly appreciated and sometimes - depending on the situation - you can get a direct link from them as well.

It toook me less than 3 minutes to find the error.

There are six other at least and I have only crawled less than 10% of the site.

Just a suggestion.

Also think of the good work you will be doing by make the internet a beter place.

p.s. It is highly frowned upon to give examples of others sites errors. As the pope forgave the person who shot him - I don't think he will mind as it is only mentioned for non malicious reasons.

I have been experimenting with the Google Predition Tool by Rusty Brick (it's not guaranteed to be accurate but interesting nevertheless). It will give the current PR and predicted PR at next update based on current PR and also on the % of increase (of links?).

I have noticed that with a PR 4 or 5, if a site goes over a 12% increase it is predicted to move to a PR 5 or 6, respectively.

I assume that means 12% of increase in links?

Can they predict if Goo is going to ban the site or penalize it for having improper grammar?

I did a test of the Rusty Brick prediction tool on some of my pages. They predict that the main page of one of my best sites will go down from a pagerank 4 to 0. Another page they predicted to rise from 4 to 7.

I personaly don't believe the outcome of this test.

that tool has been telling me that my sites will be a PR 10 on the next update for months...

it ain't accurate...even rusty himself will tell you that.
