What are some great ways to increase the PR of my website? I have read about blogging and search engines and such,but is there anything more that can be done.

I know there is no quick fix, but how long can it take to go up for example from a 3 to a 5?

All comments are appreciated!

PR does not directly realte to your rankings in google so the fascination with it can be a waste of resources, however PR of a page is increased by other sites linking to you.

PR changes come into effect immediately as soon as google finds links to your pages however tool bar PR that you see is only updated irregularly, an uodate is happening just now so any work on increaisng your PR would not be seen visually for quite a few months now.

Hi,
If ur site is ready and Online:-
U can have other relevant sites link to yours.
Make sure all the sites that should know about your pages are aware your site is online.
Submit your site to relevant directories such as the Open Directory Project and Yahoo!, as well as to other industry-specific expert sites.
Make a site with a clear hierarchy and text links. Every page should be reachable from at least one static text link.

If your site participates in an affiliate program, make sure that your site adds value. Provide unique and relevant content that gives users a reason to visit your site first.

I see. Thanks. I had read a few places that the PR is almost irrelevant now, would you agree. In fact, sites with lower PR have higher search results in google. I tried it out and its true. There is a great site with tools that I had found that shows different stats of your site or others.
I think that there is a misconception on PR and importance. If having a higher PR gave a site higher results in Google then I can see why many people would focus on it. It seems that there are other factors that determine a sites importance.

pagerank is out of date data and only takes into consideration the amount and PR of backlinks.

It's not worth worrying about it.

I wouldnt worry about the page rank as much, its the content which matters more.

PR is not outdated, it is not just given as much importance as earlier. Still PR is the only indicator of the importance of a page. SERPS will be decided by a number of factors, including PR. Other factors include archor text, title, content, quality of links pointing, age etc.. etc.

Get quality one way links to your sites, as much as possible. Also make sur e that you follow best guidelines of on page optimizartions.

PR is outdated. It's only updated 4 times a year.
If i gave you statistics for your site that are 4 months old would you think those stats are worth worrying about?

Toolbar PR is outdated, actual PR changes constantly but as Meman said toolbar PR data only gets pushed a few times a year so that we can see it and when it is updated it's old data that's a snapshot of probably a month ago or longer so unless your selling links it has little value and doesn't correlate to rankings.

Indeed. At least form my research PR seems to be "fresher" on the other data centers. Under all circumstances, getting high PR backlinks with good anchor text will always be a good thing, even if you can not view a totally up-to-date PR.

I agree with meman, google updates PR every 3 months. My young site, http://www.Arizona4Pinoys.com, is an example. After waiting for months, I finally saw a PR1 - PR3 on some of my pages 2 days ago. Accordingly, google just updated PR ranking.

But my homepage is still PR0 which is my most visited page, 2x or 3x more from my other pages. I guess it's the kind of links that really matter.

There isn't much left in the PR factor now. Sites with low PR are listed well above the sites with PR6 and above. PR does not boost your business at all. There only a handful of people around who keep on looking for high PR sites, no matter if they have bad quality.

Some says that you can increase that PR in a matter of weeks, just build links with higher PR sites and maybe sooner, you can get higher PR.

After 3 months our computer software ( http://www.trybestsoft.com ) has an PR4 for domain and a lot of PR3 pages.
How ? We have submitted our link on over 1000 directories and posting in the forums !
In rest ... I don't know ... a lot of internal links, I think the search engines like that !
Good luck !

a few month ago i was a person that always think about PR. But after that, i really don't care much since it just like a grad in university. The most important is our site originality.

I put my effort more on developed a good contents and if i got a time im still considering link exchange and directories submission.

Perfectly said - focus your time elsewhere.

Hi !

PR is not an out dated concept....it is very good and important aspect of Google organis results.
Page Rank shows your site's link popularity, i.e. how much links your site is getting from the other relevant and authenticated sites.

As you said above that there are many sites which are having higher PR but have lower position in SERP....this is because that google organic result is a factor of the relevancy and PR. Even if your site is having higher relevancy with the search query and slightly less PR, google will show it on the top. Similerly, if your site is having higher PR with slightly less relevancy then in this case also it will help your site to get the good position in SERPs.

You can increase your back links by :

Link baiting
Directory submission
Article submission to the article submission sites
Press release submission
Social networking and bookmarking sites, etc.
