Guarantee Your Sites Page Rank

I don't think it's news that your site can possibly have two totally different page ranks. In fact, when i first started focusing on improving the PR of this site i would check both, http://www.thebeefjerkyblog.com and http://thebeefjerkyblog.com and to my surprise would always end up with two different ranks. Confused with the results I felt the need to do more in order to ensure that both URLs and the site itself were getting the love it deserved.

Instead of neglecting the site and leaving everything to chance i did a little research and came up with a few tricks and tips along with long nights and hours that worked out for me. Needless to say I wish I knew then what i know now. Thanks to a post from the Young Go Getters themselves highlighting an .htaccess 301 redirect used over at Kineda where the 'www.' is automatically added to the URL whenever someone visits your site via a link or type-in without using the 'www.'

Benefits of Using This

The benefits are pretty simple when you think about. With all of the people interested in making money online and utilizing such programs as ReviewMe, TLA and PayPerPost your PR and URL matters. If you sign up to these programs using 'www.your-site.com' with a PR2 ranking then you are limiting your opportunities and chances of making good money online. Especially if the URL 'your-site.com' has a PR3 or PR4 ranking. Believe me I know, it's happened to me twice. Of course I'm sure if you have time on your hands then the site's support teams will be willing to work with you, maybe...

This trick is too cool, in fact i had to put it in place right away in order to test it out, and yeah... it works and is very simple to implement:

* Blog Implementation

1. Open your site's original .htaccess (this file should not be blank if it is, then you may have a problem)

2. Add the following code into your .htaccess file following the current content within the file (Don't replace the original content in the file) >> Replace 'thebeefjerkyblog' with your domain <<

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^thebeefjerkyblog.com [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.thebeefjerkyblog.com/$1 [L,R=301]

3. Save the file and upload it to your root directory. Click yes when it asks to replace the current file.

* It is always highly recommended that you make a back up when updating important files.

* Website Implementation

1. Open notepad

2. Add the following code into your notepad file:
>> Replace 'thebeefjerkyblog' with your domain <<

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^thebeefjerkyblog.com [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.thebeefjerkyblog.com/$1 [L,R=301]

3. Save the file as '.htaccess'

4. Upload your '.htaccess' file into the root directory of your web site.

Test it out by typing in the URL 'http://yoursite.com' if you are redirected to 'http://www.yoursite.com' then kudos to you... you have successfully started to give your site the PR recognition that it deserves.

    Hello there, we just find your site; our blog is like a test-site to see if we can make money without a host domain, in our early days of not knowing nothing at all about a blog (early days = yesterday, we still don’t know but we sound a little cool and wise) the idea was to go live in a blog, mix adsense and wallá, there you have it, but, visiting all this blogs, included yours, that talks about pagerank, traffic, SEO . . . makes us very excited to put a hosted site

    Thanks for the tips and seeking forward for the next post . . .

    But how can i access my .htaccess file in my blog. I am using blogger.com service.

      because you’re using Blogger you don’t get access to your .htaccess file. You should probably consider moving to WP
