      The PR of my Oldest Site (techomag.com) which I worked so Hard is again same PR2 even after lots of backlinks……

      The PR of my another old site which has no content in it rather than 2-3 static pages (pepalo.com) became pr2 from pr0… How it became that , I don’t know….

      The PR of my newly created 2 weeks old site (coverbooth.com) is PR3….. Has only few backlinks…..Still Confused….. :/

        Not at all, only dofollow passes the link PR juice…

        nofollow links never pass link juice

      PR is not to have only dofollow links. Nofollow links too counts and for a healthy back linking there must be a mixture of both.

    Thanks for informing this update.

    My tech blog remains same, but other blog DailyBlogMoney got PR 3 from PR2.

    Getting relevant do-follow back links is the key on increasing the PR, which you said already :)

    My Blog pagerank got changed from PageRank1 to PageRank2.You know till now I didn’t write any guest and i did only blog commenting on some selective High PR tech blogs.And I removed all bad backlinks from spam blogspot blog i think that might be the reason blog pagerank increased.

    Mine has up to PR2. And also I noticed my other pages also with either PR1 or PR2. My domain is new, my strategy is to do more guest post prior to next PR update. Good luck to me and to everyone !

    I noticed some new blogs getting PR 5 with almost no backlinks, what can be the reason behind this? Any idea Harsh?

      @Sagar If you can give me some URL, I can analyze and can share some details.

    Waiting for next page rank update as I registered my domain recently before 10 days and as expected didn’t gain page rank.

    • Harsh Agrawal
      February 7, 2012

      Arpith, if we follow last couple of PR updates pattern, next page rank update might happen in May 2012, lets see. Work on your backlink strategy and next PR update might give you first PR happiness :).

    Well, my site is demoted but I’m not surprised though, I expected something like this. After all what else should I expect from an abandoned blog. But I’m just gonna leave it there no more working on it. I have other things to give more attention.

      If your blog have good quality but ranking is going down because of less updates, you can always fix it..
      A little active SEO optimization would help a lot.
      If you have any WordPress SEO related questions, feel free to ask me on FB page.

        I found out that one of the issue was with duplicate content. And interesting thing is that this guest author was a facebook friend of mine and he kept on posting the same guest post on multiple blog including mine. I lately found this out when I ran a copyscape check. Even other blog where he left guest post are penalized. I don’t want to reveal his name here.

        And I don’t think that’s the only reason for the being penalized because I know there were multiple problems with my site which you already pointed out.

      Hey Recepti
      As I mentioned in the article, Google rolled out an update and most of the blogs are seeing PR update. And congrats for PR 4 update.

    “Nice overview. I’ll even return to your article to discover more options of SEO, while I use blog commenting the most. SEO techniques should be different, that’s true. By the way, what do you think of “”dofollow”" and “”nofollow”" tagged webblog commenting? Is there any difference what kind of blog to comment. What do you think about?

    Thank you for an answer in advance.”

      @Web Hosting Geek:
      Somehow Akismet marked your comment as Spam, so you might like to drop an Email to blogs where you regularly comment.
      Regarding Dofollow and Nofollow: Though Google made it obvious that they don’t follow nofollow attributes, but the way I see, commenting on dofollow link is like a direct backlink.. Though as I mentioned commenting is useful but it gives low quality backlink for two reasons:
      1) Nofollow
      2) Google doesn’t follow links after 100 links (Could be myth)

      I would rather suggest, comment on Keyword luv plugin enabled blog…Which are usually dofollow and you will get backlinks along with your Keyword.
      You can use Dropmylink to find targeted blogs for commenting.

    Most of my blogs stayed the same. I think Google is being hard on Blogspot blogs. I have Tumblrs, an Over-blog blog, and a website that all went from 0 to 2 while my Blogger blogs stayed the same.

    As per matt cutts told in one of their video that “we give less priority to links which are bottom of the page”.So as per my view posting a new thread in forum are more effect then commenting.And Guest post are the best way to get quality link.

    Hi Harsh,

    No PR update for any of my blog (6 BLOGS), Google still rolling out PR or what ???

  23. Suresh Khanal

    For me too, there is no PR update. All the blog pages are unchanged.

    I’m planning to get Thesis theme and hope it would be better to purchase when Thesis 2 is released. BTW, when do you expect to be public?

    Hi Harsh,
    I see that PR update really has started. We must wait some weeks for stabilization. And my first blog in English got PR2. Nice ;)

    No changes- PR-6. Maintaining the same for last two years by following non conventional methods, but struggling to manage the site.

    PR of two of my site gone down from 4 to 3. Reason may be I haven’t touch those sites for long time and haven’t build back links but for rest of the sites , PR is same.

    Harsh is there any way so that we can remove the comment backlinks made by us ? if you can help me in regarding this I would be very much thankful to you..

    • Harsh Agrawal
      August 3, 2012

      Either you can wait for disavow tool from Google or you need to manually mark an Email to blog owners to remove such comments. There is no other way for now.

    Harsh, please let me know one thing please.

    It has been 4 months I have started working hard on my blog and after working of 15 or 20 days a PR update came out and I got PR1 at that time when my blog wasn’t as popular at it is now and I had no comments etc, but now after spending 4 months of hard working they again gave me PR1?

    I have a good audience on my blog, I get almost 30+ comments on each of my post, my alexa rank is also good. So why they gave me PR1? I was expecting for PR3.

    I got inner PR3, but my homepage is PR1

    Having a decent Google page rank is good and ofcourse higher would be better. Congrats Harsh for your blog that got Page Rank rank 3, it’s really a surprise (handwork always pays off). I got PR 3 for my blog in just under two months, for which I’m happy. Thanks for this useful information, this will be very helpful (especially for newbies).

    I have experienced 1 thing in my blogging, PR may or may not get you traffic, but still if you use ADSENSE, than higher the PR, higher would be the Adsense EARNINGS, this is what I experienced, thanks and congrats Harsh you are doing wonderful,

    I was using telephoon.blogspot.com domain till Oct 8, 2012, got several harsh penalties, one-by–one, after listening Harsh’s advice I changed my domain name (but still hosted by blogger.com) on Oct 9, 2012 and within 30 days all of the penalties, seems to be got dissolved, lost traffic is getting to returning, also I got PR 1, it seems struggle is over and hope to see good results soon, thanks to you Harsh, I will contact you personally soon, take care,
