How to recognize fake Google pagerank?
Things to check:
1. Website link profile
2. Archive.org history
3. Google links
1. It is important. Checking link profile is the first thing. Let’s say we have a website that google toolbar that shows PR 5. Now it is rather hard to achieve such a pagerank. You may recognize that PR5 is high pagerank.
PR 5 domain should have a huge profile of valuable web links. You may find domain with good pagerank which is registered days or weeks ago.
Also fake pagerank website often has poor link profile or even zero links.
2. Archive.org is a great tool to check domain name history.
Fake pagerank domain often have poor domain history or even are not available in archive.org history.
3. Checking incoming links on google to any domain is the faster way to recognize fake pagerank.
Check any domain on google > https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=link:domain.com (replace domain.com)
Fake pagerank websites often don’t have any links on google. Simply shows high pagerank, but no any links.
