Every three or four months, Google updates the numerical score they sort websites by. The number is called a website’s PageRank and is a value of 0-10, 0 being the least reliable website and 10 being the most reliable website. Google PageRank is calculated by a complex algorithm that was composed and stored inside the Google headquarters. Most Internet marketers and bloggers know some basic things such as reliable content and strong backlinks, but we don’t know everything that Google takes into consideration.

The August 2012 Google PageRank Update

The last PageRank update was in May 2012, so that means the next one should be in July or August. July has come and gone without an update, so we know for sure that the special month is August. Google always makes the update during the first week of the month, so the update will occur anytime from today to August 7th.

Omega Web is currently a PR 1 website and I am hoping to be at least PR 3 after the update.
