Want to get your PageRank up quickly?
Most people don’t realize that your visible PageRank is very different than your real PageRank. Google tracks your real PageRank internally, but only updates the visible PageRank (the one you can see with PR checkers) a couple times a year.
So, technically, it’s impossible to speed up the timeline on your PageRank update. That said, there’s a lot you can do to immediately boost your internal PageRank and improve your rankings. This will also help give you a big jump once the next PR update rolls around.
Buy Expired Domains
One quick and easy way to get a lot of link juice to your site quickly is to buy up high PR domains, or domains with a lot of backlinks, and 301 redirect them to your site.
This technique used to work really well, but has lost some of its effectiveness in recent years as people started to overuse it.
Instead, you can use its twin sister techniques of buying old high PR sites, putting up mini sites and linking to your site from there.
Target Links You Don’t Have
Look at your link profile or use a backlink checker to see what kind of links you currently have. Try to get different kinds of links from the links you currently have.
Do you have a whole bunch of low quality, low PageRank links coming in? Then try to get a few high PageRank links.
On the other hand, if you have a few high powered links to your site already, you should try getting a bunch of lower quality links to your site instead.
Try to vary up your link profile so you cover the whole spectrum of links.
Launch a Viral Campaign
One way you can skyrocket your PageRank is through a viral linking campaign. Get your website to the front of a subreddit or get a bunch of upvotes on StumbleUpon, and the resulting links can quickly jump your PageRank by as much as two or three points.
Create some sort of controversial page that caters to the audience of an existing social bookmarking website. Write an attention-catching title and post it up. Rinse and repeat until a campaign gains traction.
Guest Blogging and Paid Blogging
Finally, you can use guest blogging and paid blogging to get in-context links to your website. It’s arguable that in-context links (links that are inside the content of another website) are valued more highly by Google than any other kind of link.
If you can get guest posting gigs, this allows you to get these coveted links for free in exchange for your time and content.
If you can’t get guest posting gigs, you can get a similar effect by using one of the many paid posting services online. Naturally, the higher the PageRank of the link, the more you’ll have to pay.
These are a few different ways of getting your PageRank up quickly. Your PageRank in Google’s eyes will go up first, then your visible PageRank will increase once Google rolls out its PageRank update.
