    Exclamation Why is Google giving us a very low PageRank and no links?


    Hi there,
    I would like some advice on why our website www.prime-spain.com only has a page Rank of 2, has NO incoming links (link:http://www.prime-spain.com) and is not on the top 100 for the keyword 'costa del sol property'. Having said that, its no.3 on MSN and no.14 on Yahoo,

    The website has been optimized for this keyword 'costa del sol property', and we have many 'quality' links coming from Yahoo and DMOZ, and also from similar websites, but the PageRank is still only 2, and the website seems invisible on google

    Why are we still ranked so low on Google (I just can't understand it ), I have tried contacting Google but to no avail.
    Please help, I look forward to your feedback and professional advice.

    Kirsty

    I did the following search on Google:

    links: prime-spain.com -site:prime-spain.com

    and it shows 41 backlinks.

    When I did that same search on Prog, which shows the inbound links PR, you had 39 backlinks but only one backlink with a PR4 - and that PR had a gazillion links on it that you have to split the inbound PR with.

    The other link you have - that has any PR - is a PR2 and that has a gazillion + 10 links on it.

    The rest of your inbound links are all PR0 deep page directory links.

    Try cutting and pasting that same search here:

    http://www.webmasterbrain.com/prog/

    and you will see why you have this problem.

    Not trying to be harsh here, but.... the "resources" link to your reciprocal link page is hidden so well in your copyright area that it's almost impossible to find.

    Hi Kirsty,

    From how long is your site up?

    Also, what do you mean by this?

    Reg why your site has low PR and not visible in Google, what TheJedi said is true. You will need a lot of high PR BL. Right now, you have only one PR4 link and it is not enough to rank high with that. Optimizing the content alone is not enough. The trick is to get as many high PR BL as possible.

    G shows only links with PR5 or higher

    To see what G can see of links to your site try: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&c2coff=1&q=%22%2Bwww.prime-spain.%2Bcom%22

    Be patient and keep up the good work - get links and more content to you site - and the results will come

    Browse around in the forums and get good ideas and don't be temptated to make smart spam tricks - the only real fast PR movement G makes is when it move you from 2 to nothing and a gray bar

    This is a new thing I am reading. Uptill now, it was told that, Google shows links with PR4 or higher. Any thoughts on why like this.

    It does not. It usually shows links with PR4 or above, but sometimes it displays links with lower PR values too.

    Mano70,

    On the PR2 links that show up, are they by any chance of the same theme as your site?

    I am trying to figure out why they would show those specific links if they are only a PR2.

    No, the PR2 links are not from my site, they are from some subpages at another domain which isn't related to my domain in any way (different host, different country, different language).

    Sorry All

    However - I don't change the conclusion - Kirsty has some links in the G index, but they don't show up because the PR for these links are to low.

    lol... with millions of pages indexed, do you think Google is going to take the time to answer your questions?

    If you do a Find web pages that contain the term "www.prime-spain.com/" search you can see that there are 200 results, give it some time and they will slowly start showing up as backlinks.

    Hi Hans Clodhopper,

    Any idea on why Google does this? For my site, Google shows up BL with PR0 as well and that site is no where related to my site.

    I also have one more site linking to me with the similar theme of my site and they do not show up in Google. They have PR3.

    What could be the reason for it?
