There was question as to whether Google would update their PageRank again in 2013. You see, they used to do it about every quarter, but had not done it since February.
Well, this morning, Google has updated their PageRank.

I won’t get too much into what went into this ranking change, as it will take some time to figure out what their focus was.
I can say this: This site went from a 0 to a 2, which was great news. Our other sites did not fare so well. We dropped from a 3 to a 2 on a couple of our other sites. A few other major sites that I know of also inexplicably dropped. Needless to say, it’s time to start digging into why this was the case.
While I don’t have specifics on THIS particular update yet, I can say that PageRank will always take these things into account:
– does your site have quality, fresh content?
– do you have a solid backlink and internal link profile?
– how old is your domain?
– do you follow on-page SEO best practices?
– do you have a good social profile and are you connected to Google+?
So…. what is YOUR PageRank?
