Searching out competetion today and noticed a site that has a PR7 in this industry, which seems to be highly irregular. Not only that, but check it out…. NO content!? What?? So, should I NOT create content now? :happydanc
It has one link pointing to their main site it looks like.
If anyone has a clue why, please fill me in.. privately if you wish.
FREE Online Slots and Video Poker!
Play 30+ FREE 3-reel and 5-reel slots! Exciting bonus games, prizes to win, just
click on a slot machine to play!
that this site was redirected to xwww.freeslots.com (301)
now xwww.12spins.com has the same PR as xwww.freeslots.com
(for a sort period of time) because according to the google – it’s the same site.
I had some PR6 sites of this type in the past, it’s not a big deal.
So much for the argument that PR is worthless, freeslots.com is ranked:
#1 for “online slots”
#9 for “video poker”
#2 for “free slots”
#8 for “slots”
And all of that with not that much content.
What really sucks for their competitors anyways is that the sites rank for many keywords. I am pretty sure most engines/directories have guidelines against mirrors/copies/doorways etc. I would recommend that everyone complete a spam report because if we dont before long these sneaks will have all 10 positions!
IMHO 12spins should not be listed on any engine and only one of the other primary sites should be listed! Fill out your spam reports today!
However, they DO rank for very good keywords. THAT is important. Especially when they have next to no content to get them that honor.
My questions still remains. How?
PR(a)=PR(b)/links(b) + PR(c)/links…..PR(n)/links(n)
Page rank for a site is calculated using this formula. All linking pages divided by the number of links on each page. However just because you link to another site with a good pr and the site happens to have tons of links this is not valuable. The linking partners on my site I keep at 20 of so. I am pr4
For example; when exchanging links check out your linking patrners links. The less links the better it is for you to link. What I am trying to say probably goes against everything you know about pr. But its better to trade links with a person with few links on their link page. I have seen some sites with hundreds of links this I consider a bad practice. My site is only 5 months old and using some old school knowledge I figured this was the way to go.
But PR does bring people knocking but does nothing for serps. My quess would be the page ranks high because the site its’ linking to has very few recipricol links or the site has alot off inbound links. This would satisfy the equation above.
Consider this, Bank sites usually have a high pr and they are not swapping links. Instead the have alot of quality inbound links. If you got just one high quality inbound link from a pr 5-10 site you could basically take down all your link exchanges. pr1-pr4 according to google are unimportant sites. Just a theory, I hope its not to confusing. Greek39
