As detailed in the previous section, a web page's Google PageRank is very important for several reasons, not the least of which is getting high rankings in the search results.
Part 8 - How to maximize your web pages' PR (without SPAM or "dirty" tactics)
There is really only one way to increase a page's PR: Get more inbound links!
While almost any inbound link will help boost a page's PR, there are three exceptions:
1 - An inbound link from a page with a Google PageRank of zero (PR0) doesn't provide any help in boosting your own page's PR.
3 - Links from a page that has excluded Googlebot via the robots.txt file or with a "no follow" robots meta tag don't provide a PR boost.
A link from any page with a Google PageRank of 1 or higher will help increase your page's ranking, but links from higher PR pages provide a much larger boost. Whenever possible, try to get links from pages that are at PR5 or better.
Detailed linking strategies will be discussed in Part 11 of this tutorial.
