Steps to Determine Your Invisible Page Rank

I know there were already a lot of articles around the internet regarding this topic. But I just want to share what I know through experience regarding invisible pagerank. Invisible Pagerank is your rank, or how Google loves your website but this measure cannot be seen publicly. Even if your using different Pagerank Checkers, you cannot obtain the invisible PR, simply because it’s invisible. It’s not translucent and obviously not opaque at all.

There are different factors to consider in order to determine your invisible Pagerank. You can check the time spent until your new post was crawled by the magical Google robots, you can check the rank for a specific keyword in different Google datacenters, or you can compare it with your blog that has a public page rank.

So how will you compare? You can compare it by posting something that wasn’t indexed in For example, I’ll post a random string like 34202049APAPBLAOS or anything that you can think of that has 0 results in Google. Enter this string also to another blog with a visible Page Rank. For instance, your other blog has a public PR of 1. If you entered the same strings in both blogs, wait for it to get indexed. If the other blog ranks higher that your PR1 blog, then obviously, the other blog has a higher PR. You can now assume that it’s PR is between 2 above.

Different Algorithms of Different Search Engines

Almost all search engines had the same algorithm except exclusive search engines like Cuil and Powerset. I still can’t understand what’s the basis of Cuil until now. While in Powerset, you can only search Wikipedia articles and nothing more. It’s like a separate search engine built for Wikipedia and only for Wikipedia. Even if Wikipedia has their own search form, Powerset still strives to exist to be an exclusive search engine for Wikipedia. But I have nothing against Powerset, because it’s cooler and was pimped up with great features and enhancements compared to the normal Wikipedia search form.

Other major search engines such as Live, Yahoo and Google had also similar algorithms. The number of links pointing to one permalink or domain is a great factor in ranking a specific web page. However, as what I observed in Yahoo search, they manually add websites to rank higher if they think that the specific website is a more reliable source of a certain information that users are trying to find.

The Principles of Link Building

Link building is the main factor why search engine optimization exists. Without links, search engine algorithms have no basis of which site or permalink has higher value and vice versa. The number of links that points to one domain is very important in increasing the site rank or page rank in search engine result pages. The more the relevant links that points to a domain, the higher are the chances that the specific domain goes up on search engine pages. However if over linking occurs, there are counters measures from various search engines to identify if the links are relevant or just nonsense.

2009: A Brand New Start!

Many things happened in 2008 and those things are a stepping stone to reach greater heights. I’ve learned a lot last year, a lot about SEO, link building, and more stuff related to search engines. I’ve learned more about the MSN search engine algorithm and how it index blogs and include it in their search results. I also learned more about Google and Yahoo search algorithm by experimenting different methods of link building and anchor text tactics.

There’s a lot to learn out there! All you need is to be diligent enough to learn more and more things about SEO. Until now, I still consider myself as an SEO newbie because I have yet a lot to learn about this subject. My knowledge about this things is only mediocre and I think I learn more and more in the coming days. I need to focus and experiment more about these things so that I can make more out of it.

Happy new year to everyone and may you have a fruitful SEO days to come.
