I was looking at my page ranking and it's a great wopping 0... Yup that's a zero.. lol.. Was reading about linking and linking back, and just sooooo much info out there, some companies and directories wanted money... Was wondering what some of the season veterans have done, or what some of us bloggers are doing? or even if it doesn't matter to you..

Actually, I'm not even sure how to go about finding my page ranking? I guess I'd look at it like I do horoscopes: interesting and fun to look at but I wouldn't put much stock into it.
I agree with everything Ali said!
I'm a newbie so I'm not much help, but I've learned a lot by subscribing to http://www.problogger.net/.
How do you find out your page ranking?

To find your Google Ranking you can download the Google Toolbar and see yours as well as the Google PR rank of every web site and blog you visit. Or, you can find out your Google PR by simply plugging in your URL here: http://pr.blogflux.com/

Never pay to get your blog indexed in search engines. Google and all of the others will pick it up sooner than later.

There really is no secret about increasing your page ranking. You simply have to blog consistently, network on the Net and in real life, and readers will come. In turn, your ranking will go up. That's pretty much how it works.
One way to increase your PR is by getting backlinks from higher PR sites. This does work! When I first started my Blogging with Cents, I didn't link out to anyone really but had incoming links from Adesblog (pr 7 at the time), Tyler Cruz (pr6 at the time), Problogger, etc. Within 3mths, I had a pr of 5. Of course, I messed that all up later but regardless, it does work;)
That's absolutely right! I don't think I've ever been linked to from a highly ranked PR site. Good to know it really works.
I didn't know how to do it until I read Jen's post...i'm not sure if i'll do it.

Ok -- I'm pretty sure I have absolutley NO rank in Google's world, but I checked out this site. HOW do you check your rank on it? I joined and when I go to the rank page, I don't see a way to actually check on the info.
I don't think you have to join. On the first page it asks for the URL. Type that in and hit the button and there you have it. Mine is a big ol' zero, too. I figure it doesn't really matter for me right now because I have a very small readership. It's not like I'm going to sell advertising at this point. I was thinking that if the readership goes up, then I can focus on my ranking. Does that sound practical? Or am I missing something by not caring about it right now?
I'm no expert but it's my understanding that a lot of it is based on links...if you have a lot of links to payperpost type sites, have a disclosure policy etc - then Google penalizes you and knocks you back a few points...if you have a lot of incoming links from highly ranked sites then you get a boost. I don't do anything specifically to boost my PR but I do work on gaining links as it will ultimately help with traffic and that's a big goal for me. And I agree - never pay for a link in a directory, I think you can achieve the same results just by concentrating on gaining old fashioned links :)
Linking is pretty much the thing to do.. you can start with some free directories. There are many out there - greenmoss
