How To Win Friends and Influence your PageRank

Sounds like a page taken right out of Dale Carnegie’s classic book doesn’t it? No doubt if he was still alive today today he would have updated it with a chapter on blogging and social networking.

Does making the A-list perk your ears? Have you ever wanted your blog to shoot to the top ten of a Google Search? Then search no more (no pun intended) because I’ve got the solution for you.

I think I may have discovered the Holy Grail for improving your pagerank. All you have to do is buy my latest book for only $14.95 and you will have the long tail by the short ’n culrys (I’m kidding of course).

According to Sam Vaknin, Ph.D., it’s simply a matter of getting yourself listed in Wikipedia and some incoming links from the MySpacers. Apparently his research shows:

The more incoming links from MySpace a Website has - the higher it is placed in the search results. In other words: if Website A has 700 incoming links from 700 different Websites and website B has 700 incoming links, all of them from various pages on MySpace, Website B will be ranked (much) higher in the search results. This holds true even when both Websites A and B sport the same PageRank. This holds true even if the bulk of Website A’s incoming links come from “good properties” in “good Internet neighborhoods”. Incoming links from MySpace trump every other category of incoming links.Wikipedia, the “encyclopedia” whose “editors” are mostly unqualified teenagers and young adults is touted by Google as an authoritative source of information. In search results, it is placed well ahead of sources of veritable information such as universities, government institutions, the home pages of recognized experts, the online full-text content of peer-reviewed professional and scholarly publications, real encyclopedias (such as the Encarta), and so on.

Now you know. It looks like we might be putting all those nice SEO folks out of business, so when you make it to the big time just remember the Bloke told you so (and don’t forget to link to me either). ;-)

Sound too easy to be true? It is.
