Page Rank Question
Posted 08 September 2003 - 01:38 PM
Here, in these forums, I notice that all pages, even a brand new thread gets a page rank equal to the forum home page.
What causes this, is it anything to be concerned about and is there anything that can be done to improve page ranking inside the site?
Inquiring minds want to know :stunned:

The pagerank for new pages in the forum is a "guestimate" by the toolbar.

Do your interior pages show up in searches? If so, Farhan is right. The toolbar is just a guesstimate.
Sometimes no interior PR is an indication that there is a technical problem with the site and that Googlebot may not be finding the pages.
More often than not, it's just a toolbar fluke.

You can put up a brand new page of an existing page, and it will usually show a 'phantom' PageRank, that is the guesstimate that the others have mentioned.
Once the page has been spidered, but before it's in the index (and even sometimes when it is in the index) it will often show no PageRank or a PR0. Doesn't mean anything other than that the page is just in the process of being added and they haven't quite figured out it's true PageRank yet.
Once the page is in for real, it will then show it's true PageRank.
Hope this helps!

Good reason to always do things on the up and up. You never, ever have to worry that you're penalized and will always know that whatever you're seeing is either a Google glitch or something else that's out of your control.
