5 Things You Can Do With Your New PageRank

The pagerank update has finally arrived, now what are you going to do? Here are five things that you can take advantage of, now that you have a PR.

1. ReviewMe and Text-Link-Ads: Most blogs can’t run these services without a pagerank. By using TLA, you may be able to pull in about 100$ per month!

2. Raise Your Prices: Currently charging 10-20$ for a review on your blog? Having a page rank on it, can alone, double that price in some cases.

3. Start Advertising: Hit the Digital Point Forum and sell some text links. Advertising on this blog is only 10$ per month. Sell 5 premium spots and you’ve got 50$ extra in your pocket

4. Offer Incentive: Use your pagerank for promotion on your blog. You can offer incentive in the form of links. Link back promotions (they link to you, you link to them) are old, but they can still work. Or like our comment friday, offer a free link per week, for comments.

5. Sell Your Blog: Whether you like it or not, pagerank = money. Now that you have pagerank on your blog, it is worth more than it was last week, whether its a 1 or a 4, the value increased. Cashquests reports that they just sold a PR4 domain with very little traffic or backlinks, for 65$. Without the PR, the domain is generally worthless (maybe the 9.95 it would cost to register).

Now that you’ve got that golden light, which is pagerank, which step are you going to take?

    I think if you keep it under “blogroll” etc, you should be okay.

    Like removing a category saying “sponsored posts” might be a good idea

    judging from the post, i think it was just a domain, no content etc on it. 65$ just for a domain isnt bad

    I will write keyword focused articles that will rank high in Google and produce quality content for readers.

    I will never turn to the Dark Side of link selling and buying. ;)

    To me, it seems that the blogs focusing on these types of money making schemes are the ones getting penalized. The blogs that seeing pagerank increases are generally the smaller ones focused soley on content, with maybe some Adsense somewhere.

    Matt.. nice tips! But, one has to careful about selling links. With so many people getting people getting penalized, I am sure it has left a log of bloggers wondering about services like TLA, ReviewMe, etc!

    OK Matt, when everyone was on the TLA kick I signed up, but nobody advertised on my site because it was new, no PR, etc. Now I have a shiny PR 4, I just got an email from TLA asking me to reinstall my code (I recently changed themes). I’m not a fan of the inline links but the squares in the right hand corner seem OK to me. Do you think I would get penalized for doing this, if I added the no follow I don’t think that would be fair to advertisers. I’m just a little confused about this I was wondering what you think?

    many will tell you either to sell links or don’t. I’m not too worried about it having a major effect on bloggers, at least not yet. Bloggers and webmasters have been selling links from pagerank for years. They are finally putting “penalties” now.

    Id start being worried if more people get “punished”

    Some people are losing rank and are NOT selling links. Google is out of your control, I wouldn’t lose sleep over it…

    Enforcing no paid links is impossible

    I dont think you can add nofollow to TLA links.

    I don’t think it would be a problem as long as you don’t label it “sponsored link: blah”

    Thanks Matt, I think I’m going to be a rebel and go for it. There’s no point blogging in fear. Some people told me I’d be penalized for having contests, for a viral link I did, and for doing PayPerPost. I still got my PR. Who knows what Google will do, or what other bloggers really do for that matter. I appreciate your help. Emma
