Does a High Google Page Rank Help?
Google pagerank was previously used heavily in the Google algorithm but now with all the Google updates a pagerank is less important. It is however still a good tool to see if Google likes a website.
The Google ranking is based on how important the website pages are deemed to be; this is calculated by using a very complex and very secret mathematical equation.
Google looks at content, page authority, keyword density, the number of backlinks, external links, website traffic and location.
No one outside of Google can tell you the exact formula but Chameleon has followed Google’s every move over the years and and studied the goal that Google is trying achieve and we always like to think we know what to do to achieve the best ranking.
