This post is not for those who are Google smacked. Please stay away or you will smack me for rubbing it in. However, I hope there are lessons to be learn from my mistakes.
One of my blog (I shall not reveal which) which was Google smacked got PR 0. It was previously a PR 4/10. Then, I applied for reconsideration. And I got back not only my main URL pagerank of 4/10, I also got back all the internal pages pageranks.
Many people still insist that pagerank does not matter in SERPs. It is not true. It has a lot of weight there. I have observed for a while and I am darn frustrated that no matter how, my position is always behind those who have PR 5/10. And those who have lesser PR tails behind my blog.
There are certain keywords that I was tracking and the results always go by the pagerank.
eg. pig dream (just an example, don’t run and Google)
Play-play Google search results
1. Blog who has PR 5/10 with the mention
2. Blog who has PR 4/10
3. Blog with PR 3/10
I am lucky that not many people has PR 5/10 (forget about 6/10 and above) in that blogging niche. I am also lucky that many of my internal pages have PR 3 to PR 1.
You can check your internal pages pagerank from Livepr. And a good tip is to improve, add tags, add keywords, make the title more relevant and edit those pages. Of course, use the SEO plugin for WordPress. Also if there are any useful keywords that you can link to your other pages, do it. Advertisers have to pay good money to get a link from us, so why not just take advantage of this for our own good? However, don’t stuffs too many links or Google may think you are a link farm.
We may have 2,000 posts on one blog but sometimes, 20 pages are all we need to get the traffic.
Here’s a screenshot from LivePr for this blog internal pageranks. Wakahkahkah….it says I have PR 10 on all pages. Who knows…it may be future PR prediction, eh?
System screwed up. :P

The LivePR internal PR checker is down most of the time.
Does anyone know another way to check internal PR?

This service is great, but it screws itself up often as you see. :D
Sometimes it also shows 0 to all pages.

I’ve just check with prchecker info for your site url thats only pr4. However, its good shared. Thanks.

The Livepr tool was the first one I came across that allowed you to check the internal PR of all your pages. Like everyone on here has been saying though, it doesn’t work half the time and has a 60 minute time limit for each use.
So, I decided to create my own site that offers a bunch of different SEO tools, including an internal PR checker.
