I checked keywords out yesterday and now they are different today - and the sponsor link has gone which was there.

Yesterday we were not the first keyword and now we are number one.

Does it change all the time? Or just in certain time blocks when they crawl the net again? (sorry a bit clueless on google stuff)

I'm in the process of adding meta tags and fixing up the pages for search engine placement. Big bloody job eh! :lol: but i have had so much information and tips from this forum sections :thumbsup:

If your refering to your new onpage information getting cached the answer is all the time. Google is in "everflux" and updates based on how high your Pr is, the amount of backlinks etc (This is because the more you have the more often the spider finds you)

If you are PR 4+ your main page will usually get recached every 2-4 days.

As far as PR and backlinks are concerned though, everyone has to wait the same amount of time for the dance which can happen every 21-27 days. Although there has been some strange occurences with the dance recently one was only 11 days

Adjusting your meta tags will not help your PR Rose. To increase your PR you need to get inbound links to your site from other websites, and the higher the PR on the sites that link to you, the more likely it will increase yours.

Yep, and just to keep something clear, it is the PR of the page linked from that matters.

Although you will often see people say "I have a PR6 site", that's not an accurate statement as sites don't have PR, pages do. It's just the way we wix our merds. ;)

Oh! okay, I guess I wasn't clear on that one, so having better meta tags that match the page will definetly make search keyword matching a lot better right.

Thanks for your patience :)

Google dances pretty regularly now - the SERPs can be updated within days at a time, on something known as the "rolling index".

Meta-tags have uses for other search engines, but I've never seen anyone demonstrate that Google ever uses meta-tags for ranking pages.

Any idea when the dance is likely to start again? Like I said in another thread, I'm new at this.

what slightly confuses me, is that within 3 months of putting my site up, i attained a PR of 4 (the homepage only) without any backlinks at all.....infact, it was only about 2 months ago i started to do the linking work....which is why i'd guess the PR hasn't changed.... :(

my point being though....where did the PR4 come from in the first place, if they are only given based on links?

I am not an expert so please correct me if I am wrong but I think the pr is aswell as links is content ? The more content you have it affects pr

PR above 1 can only come from outside links. It's possible that someone linked to you because you had good content. The content will only make you rank for the terms relevant to the content and meta tags It will have NO effect on your PR.

musik,
it does change all the time and it's maddening. best way to improve PR (which helps improve your keyword positions), is to trade links with other sites that have a good PR. don't use link swap sites 'cause you can get penalized.

let me know if you'd like to swap links. i have a PR3,PR4,PR5 sites that deal with funny videos/pictures/comedy/entertainment weird videosand comedians

Rankings are updated daily, PR and backlinks are updated once every three months, algo changes occasionally.
