Finally FinanceTwitter Has Been Assigned A PageRank

I found out today FinanceTwitter has been assigned a PageRank after almost three months (a quarter) waiting for the ranking since the birth of FinanceTwitter website. It could be assigned earlier this month but I have not checked it since. According to Wikipedia, PageRank is a link analysis algorithm which assigns a numerical weighting to each element of a hyperlinked set of documents with the purpose of “measuring” its relative importance within the set.


PageRank was initially developed at Stanford University by Larry Page and Sergey Brin as part of a research project about a new kind of search engine. The project started in 1995 and led to a functional prototype, named Google, in 1998 and the rest is history. The name PageRank is a trademark of Google Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG, stock) but the patent is not assigned to Google but to Stanford University.


PageRank is one of many factors that determine where your web page appears in search result ranking, but if all other factors are equal, PageRank can have significant impact on your Google rankings. When you first started your own website domain or a blog (such as free blogger by Google), you’ll not have any PageRank and when you check with tools such as Live PageRank or PageRank Checker, you will most possibly starts with PageRank of 0 (zero) – just like FinanceTwitter initially.
As your contents developed, Google will evaluate the importance of each site and via a complex and complicated but highly confidential algorithm your website will be assigned a new PageRank. This PageRank is not static and will change over time. There are talks about S.E.O. (Search Engine Optimization) and how you should optimize your website to achieve higher PageRank but I’m not an expert in this area. So if anyone of you who’re expert in PageRank improvement, I would be very much appreciated if you can comment and share your knowledge on how to increase the PageRank of FinanceTwitter.
