    Have i been punished? (PR 0)


    Dear masters of the web, I have been scouring the web for answers, hopefully my pilgrimage ends here...

    I'm an aspiring young performer and for a few months, I've had a website put up for my act ( sleightlysilas[dot]com ) in the hopes that I can expand and buy my mom some nice shoes and what not.

    when I learned about page rank, I went to check mine looking whether i got a 3 or a 2 or something. Well i got a 0/10.

    I've had back links set up from reputable sites relevant to mine, the magic cafe, singapore magic circle etc. But when i went to check on that, link: shows i got none on google and on yahoo.

    I'm not very sure what's going on, have i been banned or something?

    Did i do something wrong?

    Any course of action you suggest i take?

    I appreciate your time.

    How long have you been working on this? Because there hasn't been a full "Google Toolbar Update" for many months.

    Could be that your "PR" is higher than 0, but that it's just not showing yet.

    What do you need it for anyway?

    Like I said: Google only updates info like that once in a blue moon.

    1) Check Yahoo! for backlinks.
    2) Keep doing what you're doing. Nice backlinks from related sites will get you a long way.
    3) PR is important, but don't check it. It comes naturally with proper "dofollow backlinks" (i.e. without rel="nofollow" in the code)
    4) If you're aiming for high rankings, then check your RANKINGS for your fav. keyphrases, not your PR

    It really takes time. On average, new webmasters that have a good backlink building strategy obtain a PR1 over the course of two Google updates.

    First of all i like to clarify the PR aspect and for that i will recommend you to read this thread http://forums.seochat.com/google-page-rank-47/stop-asking-about-google-pr-read-this-first-141413.html

    Now regarding your site i check some basic areas and find that no proper H1 tag is there, the contents are not proper so i will recommend you to check those properly. Keep in mind content is king and try to use relevant content which will give more value for your site. Only million of backlinks will not serve your purpose.

    Google will show you very limited back-links you created. This is because Google have said that they won't display all the links in "link:" operator. I don't know what were the exact words, but I read that they don't want their search manipulated by someone by running quick link analysis.
    So you need not to worry about the Google link. I never use it. Google show random pick and also you won't find any link in which has high PR (PR 4 and above) in my experience.

    I'm sure You just wasn't online yet when Google did PR update.

    However, what do you need PR for? I assume just to show-off
    Don't bother PR, get more and more backlinks instead!

    In my views, it seems like that you have been penalized. Your webmaster tool and analytics data can help you nail down the trouble
