Ok, So here I've been building websites for 3 years, and now I decide to start focusing on the marketing part for my clients. (I got a clue finally) Anyways, PR is not an easy task. I am curious how you take a new site and get it ranked with a PR3 or PR5 in the first 6 months. Is it:

A: Submit it to all major directories? And then enjoy the backlinks from their PR ranked categories. Is this the best way to start?

B: Buy links on PR sites? Because I tell you, trying to trade links when your new site has PR-0, yeah right, good luck.

What am I not understanding? It would be awesome if you intelligent beings would through some feedback at this junior Marketer.

Very good question. I would also like to hear some knowledgable person remark to this thread!

The no brainer answer to this is to get High PR sites to link to your site.

Easiest way to do this IMO is to write articles and get them published on other highly ranked sites, then place a few links in the article that points back to your site.

Started a new site about six months ago - linked from one of my other sites (PR5). No other inbound links and not much content to speak of. The site is now a PR4 as of the last PR update.

It also doesn't show up in the SERPs yet. Don't confuse PR with rank.

Jake, do you know where are the best place to post press releases and news to get PR? I use prweb and prfree, anywhere else?

PlanetTokyo,
That is interesting that you linked from a PR5 site to your new site and how have PR4! How many other links to your new site are there? ANY? How long did it take to get the PR 5?

Great comments, anyone else know of good place to post news, etc.. to get bot traffic and PR?

All of my PageRank prior to this summer was aquired over time -- while I was completely clueless about the concept. Seriously, I had no idea about PR - I'm just a web developer focused on creating useable websites that are well designed.

As soon as I started learning about PR I went back to take a look at all of the sites I work on and most of them are at least PR5 (with no effort on my part). One is PR6, but that's primarily because the content is updated 4-5 times a day and there are hundreds of inbound links.

The PR4 site I referenced has no other inbound links.

PageRank is not updated in real time so it can take a while to see any movement.

Be carefull with directories if you're after PR. Check the PR of the page your link will likely appear on and also check the source code for frames, rel=no follow , meta tags with "no follow" and other methods to tell the search engines to not follow those links. a lot of directories produced in .asp script also have session IDs that prevent the links from being followed (and don't produce PR either). and because directories often have lots of sub directories before your link appears the PR gets watered down with each one. It's my experience that directories that produce clean links are few and far between.

I seem to remember seeing discussions from GoogleGuy to not buy links either.

Best prospect is to search for good clean PR producing sites with few links. I searched for 2 hours this morning and found 1.

This will work as long as you don't post the article on your own site otherwise you will be receiving the supplemental results penalty for duplicate content.

So Lorel, do you just have links in your newscenters to the places you posted the articles? Like I posted the same article in both PRFREE and PRWEB, should I just have a link to both on my site for news releases?
Thanks,
Duston

You can avoid the duplicate content penalty for posting your own articles and press releases on your site if you add substantial content to the page.

Write an introduction and put some comments on the article or press release. If possible, try to break up the main article and press release into sections with some on-topic message about your related activities.
