Google PageRank Update 2009 - 2010:Last and Next
January 2010 saw an update to Google’s page rank algorithm on 31 December 2009 and as such some sites have noticed either a positive or negative change to their own page rank. Page Rank has been around longer than Google has been a household name, with updates on the algorithm made on an in-frequent basis. It seems that over time the functionality has changed a fair bit, but the original formula still very much applies when it comes to determining new ranking after an update.
That full page rank algorithm was created by Larry Page at Stanford and is as follows:
PR = 0.15 + 0.85 ( PR(Backlink 1)/TotalLinks(Backlink 1) + PR(Backlink 2)/TotalLinks(Backlink 2) + … + PR(Backlink X)/TotalLinks(Backlink X) )
Most website owners and SEO programmer know that you want high PR pages to improve site authority and from there a site traffic increase should follow. Google prides itself on an ever changing and highly adaptable model, designed to improve and advance the performance of its search algorithm and ultimately the user experience. The majority of changes to the Page Rank algorithm are tweak and nips, but sadly Google don’t release the specifics, so effectively navigating this new update is a process of educated trial and error.
However, what we feel is that with Google Caffeine and the latest update is there more focus on relevant / up to date content, so if you don’t have a blog on your site and trying to get rankings you are sadly behind the times.
Search Engine Optimisation is not an exact science and this months’ page rank update is just as mysterious as the last. What is clear is that Google releases algorithm updates based on data collated and user feedback, so ultimately Google should have everyone’s best interests at heart.
