What is my website ranking?
What is PageRank ?
PageRank is Google's way of deciding a page's importance, and also considered one of the most important element for Website Ranking. It matters because it is one of the factors that determines a page's ranking in the search results. It isn't the only factor that Google uses to rank pages, but it is an important one. [ Source ]
In a nutshell, it considers links to be like votes. In addition, it considers that some votes are more important than others. PageRank is Google's system of counting link votes and determining which pages are most important based on them. These scores are then used along with many other things to determine if a page will rank well in a search. [ Source ]
What is Alexa Ranking ?
Alexa collects information from users who have installed an "Alexa Toolbar," allowing them to provide statistics on web site traffic, as well as lists of related links. [ Source ]
Although Alexa ranking doesnt directly affect your website ranking, but it does give you an indication as to how popular your website is.
Alexa’s traffic rankings are based on the usage patterns of Alexa Toolbar users over a rolling 3 month period. A site’s ranking is based on a combined measure of reach and pageviews. Reach is determined by the number of unique Alexa users who visit a site on a given day. Pageviews are the total number of Alexa user URL requests for a site. However, multiple requests for the same URL on the same day by the same user are counted as a single pageview. The site with the highest combination of users and pageviews is ranked #1. [ Source ]
What is DMOZ ?
DMOZ is the Internet’s largest directory system (over 4 million web sites) and is maintained by human editors. A web site listing in Dmoz can also be an important part of having a web site rank well in Google, because Google uses Dmoz results in it’s own directory.[ Source ]
Advantages of Dmoz :
- Better relevancy than non-human edited Directories and search engines.
- Do not rank, promote or optimize sites, simply a data provider.
- Abuse by editors (not often)
- Can take a long time to have your site reviewed. [ Source ]
What are backlinks ?
Backlinks are incoming links to a website or web page. The number of backlinks is an indication of the popularity or importance of that website or page. In basic link terminology, a backlink is any link received by a web node (web page, directory, website, or top level domain) from another web node (Björneborn and Ingwersen, 2004). Backlinks are also known as incoming links, inbound links, inlinks, and inward links. [ source ] .
- Backlinks from Google means the number of incoming links 'as reported by google"
- Backlinks from Yahoo means the number of incoming links 'as reported by Yahoo! "
- Backlinks from MSN means the number of incoming links 'as reported by MSN "
