How To Fake The PageRank Of A Website

  • When a search engine spiders visits a web page URL, the server redirects the spider to a web page with high PageRank.

  • Google assigns the high PageRank to the page with the redirection because it thinks that the pages are identical.

  • When a human web surfer visits the web page URL, the server does not redirect the surfer. That means that the web surfer sees the web page of the faker and the Google toolbar displays the PageRank of the redirected URL:

How To Check If A Website Has A Faked PageRank

  • Search Google for "" (without the quotation marks, replace with the domain that you want to check).

  • If there are no results or if the returned URLs don't match the original URL then it's likely that the PageRank has been faked. If Google returns only one URL for the query and if the URL is the same as the checked URL then the PageRank is okay.
