Funeral announcement, The death of page rank, funeral to be held later today.
While the title may be somewhat humorous, depending on your temperament, the subject should really make you think about how quickly the internet changes and how you could find yourself attending a funeral when you really might be better off celebrating.
Page rank is no longer really an effective method of measuring a webpage or websites popularity.
Why Page rank could be soon to be the subject of an obituary is something that you should pay attention to, it is a story that begs to be told but so few know of its demise that most people still think it is important.
If page rank were a dog, in dogie years, the idea and concept of page rank would be very old by now, in fact, even Google, has been hinting that they no longer really care about what is or is not ranked, yet, for the most part, many many webmasters, seem to have the strange idea that if a web page is not ranked highly it has no value and no traffic, the truth just does not reflect that.
So if page rank is dead and even google does not really care about page rank why should you?
The answer is you should not, in fact, for the most part, it is easier to get better results on bing and yahoo then it is on google, while google will always be a force in the online world, it is not as popular as it once was and if they do not start moving from a corporate only business model then eventually when they start to loose those large corporate customers, they will begin to miss the little guys, yep the ones that made google so popular in the first place.
For the most part google has abandoned its user base in favor of large corporate clients.
So, hopefully they will realize that eventually the big corporations are not the real customer but the customer of the large corporate clients, now that is what is really important.
So now that we have determined that Page Rank is dead, what is important?
Updated content is the new page rank.
Content used to be king, but now updated content is king, and not just updated but fresh content now that is the key to your SEO, success.
Generating content is no longer enough.
Updating content is no longer enough.
You have to do a little of both, at the same time, generating unique content and updating and generating that unique content, at the same time, now that is the new key to SEO, yet so few people realize that this important thing has taken place in the long term SEO world, many people are still trying to gain SEO value through PPC and CPA but that has been a proven failure.
Updating and generating unique content then updating that content with new updated content.
Sounds confusing right, but not really, consider how an editor works, yes, thats right as an editor works he or she upgrades the content or book or article they are working on.
Editing content is not easy, it involves a process of working and usually you cannot do it all at one time you should edit that content as you go and you should edit content on a continual basis.
Edit then read it then edit it some more, always with the goal of improving that content in this way you can generate unique and updated content which is always fresh and always better than it was before you started editing that content.
Our plugin helps you update content and that is why reposting is so important, reposting is a method of blogging that allows you to eidt your content while the content is still maintained on the server.
