Hello,

Okay, so the title was a little catchy, but it's true. I own a website that has a Google Page Rank of 10 currently.

Yes, obviously it was achieved using blackhat seo, but I was honestly amazed as to just how easy it was to perform this very very simple trick.

It took me about 5 minutes to implement this trick, and cost about $8. And I honestly don't care about getting banned because this is just a throw away domain. Nothing of use is on that domain.

Oh, and if you want to hide the fact that you did this trick, you can alter the trick to give you an instant Page Rank of 9, 8, 7 or 6... it's totally up to you. Obviously my domain is very obvious that the page rank is fake.

Yeap, I got it, a big fat page rank 10 domain…so what…big deal…lol….but it was fun doing it. :=)

After six pages, this is what you were so excited about.

What a waste of time.

Why would I want my home page which happens to draw a lot of traffic redirecting to Google (Which will kill any traffic it's getting) until the next PR update which probably won't be for 3 or 4 months?

I'm sorry I asked.

Yawn.

[webmasterworld.com...]

... and again 12 months before that.... and again 12 months before that.

It is a very good example of caveat emptor when it comes to buying links for PR. I'm sure google love the fact that people are out there doing this.

It's the oldest trick in the book and one which has long since been superceded with far better ways to spend your 10 minutes.

But it clearly does still fool a few.

Looks like a new dog is playing with old tricks.

When you have something new let us know.

JW, you are a drama queen.

So much drama for such a stupid well-known hack. Look up hubris in the dictionary - you just might see your picture.

Guys, the technical concept behind this "method" was obvious from the beginning. You were the ones bugging JWalters to post the details. Now you're complaining because you expected any kind of miracle?

With so many people buying links for PR, that trick is worth thousands of dollars if exploited. Of course you can be ready to get sued if caught.

65 threads for something that was known months ago.

So if it was allready known, why didn't one of you morons post it instead of crying your eyes out trying to get it?!!! If you had really known it, you would of posted it many moons ago.

Translation: WAH!! WAH!! WAH!! Pze post it. WAH!!! *Get's posted.* Um, nothing new there. I was just too stupid to actually think of that method, but it's still not new.

As mentioned in my origional thread. I bought the domain for $8, spent 10 minutes installing the code (actually can be done in under 1 minute), and then simply just let the domain sit for a few weeks until the page rank update occured. After that I went into the domain via FTP, removed the line of code, and visited the page to discover that I had a page rank of 10.

What's wierd is that website has really high Alexa ratings (516,000), for having absolutely no content on the site. I guess alot of people have been visiting the site to see if it really did have that high of page rank.

... which should tell you that the Alexa Rank is just as worthless as the fake Google PageRank.

This thread should have been closed long ago.
It reminds me of the same childish arguments I see on other forums which shall go unamed.
