How to Increase the Page Rank of Your Web Site and Attract More Visitors
Google's Toolbar PageRank feature is used to determine the quantity and quality
of the sites pointing to your own. If there are no other sites that point to
your own site it'll be difficult to get high rankings in the search engines.
The toughest competition are the top 20 sites that contain the main keywords you
use in your web copy and people enter in the search engines.
Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B.
Google looks at more than the sheer volume of votes, or links a page receives;
it also analyzes the page that casts the vote. Votes cast by pages that are
themselves "important" weigh more heavily and help to make other pages "important."
A page that links to many pages with high PageRank it receives a high rank also.
If there are no links to a web page there is no support for that page.

site can attain. Google updates its PageRank continually and continuously. It
exports new backlinks, PageRank, or directory data approximately every three months.
