I have my site with the PR 6. It built with well optimized content & it shows good back links on Major Search Engines, Even I have been doing one - way link building. But my PRs are still sticking on 6. I am not seeing my website page ranks are not increased.

How do I improve the PR6 to next rank? Does anybody have any idea?

That's a pretty tough hill to climb I would imagine. I wish I knew the answer!

The PageRank numbers that we see on the toolbar are not set on a linear scale. Instead the toolbar PageRank scale is like a logarithm scale, roughly base 6. So going from 6 to 7 shows a growth that is about six times greater than going from 5 to 6.

As backlinks grow, Google is always re-scoring the PageRank they use in their calculations. But they do not change the PR that is reported on the toolbar to match. Instead they only update the Toolbar PR about four times a year.

So your site may already have gone up another notch, but you can't see that on the toolbar yet. But because of the steep logarithmic scale, it is more likely that a site would grow from "low PR 6" to "middle PR 6", and the toolbar will not report that kind of fine tuned scoring - only Google knows.

More information about PageRank is available in the Hot Topics area [webmasterworld.com], which is always pinned to the top of this forum's index page.

My site reached PR 6 in about 3 years - it then took another 2 years to reach PR 7. In that period, backlinks at least quadrupled. PR 8 is probably out of the question for my particular (fairly niche) site. Unless backlinks also continue growing, I'm aware that I might slip back to PR 6 or lower in the future. So rate of growth (or lack thereof) is also a factor.

Improve your supplemental status, your trust rank and you traffic. You really don't need to improve the green bar.

There comes a time when depending on your PR may put your overall strategy at risk if SEO is your game. Whilst it's good to give it some thought , once you hit PR6 territory , i think you are getting safe and sustainable.

PR7 for most folks seems hard to sustain & unless you are really unique and popular PR8's + have a good chance of an editor review if they don't match the quality of the traffic.

But keep building , it can only help , but don't be dependent on it.
