I was thrilled with the latest Google PR update. I know, lots of you don’t care about PR anymore, but I do!! And I am not afraid to say so! PR still matters to some people especially in link building. Anyways, this is a post about how I went from a PR 0 to PR 2 in just six months. In my opinion, I am extremely happy with that and proud of the progress.
How I Did It
I don’t have some secret recipe here for you, quite the contrary. Everything I did when I owned The Friendly Blogger was out in the open to everyone. I shared everything I did with you. So, I see no reason for this to be any different.
Now, I read a lot of blogs. I implement a lot of tips I read from others….something I think too few people do. Many people read but don’t implement. Kind of along the lines of practice what you preach. If you read somewhere that something has worked for someone, why wouldn’t you try it???
I was guilty of the same thing when I first started. I used the Blogger platform and it sat there collecting dust from april 2009 to October 2010. Then one lucky day, I happened upon Ana Hoffman of Traffic Generation Cafe. The greatest thing that ever happened to my blogging career.
This is no a** kissing or brown nosing post either. This is the bottom line truth of how I increased my PR, made money with this blog and eventually sold it for pure profit.
It takes hard work and dedication to build a blog and make it successful. Period. You can’t just whip a blog and expect the world to fall at it’s doorstep. Ana taught me that. Ana taught me A TON. many of you have taught me things along the way and I appreciate all of it. Ana took me under her wing, gently (HAAAAA) guided me and got tough when needed.
So, what did I do? I read everything I could get my hands on that Ana wrote. I subbed her list, I read her posts, I read her guest posts, I asked her a million questions…..and on and on and on.
I can say with 100% certainty if you read Ana’s stuff, you WILL succeed. Look, I had this blog for about a year and a half and never got anywhere. Then in November of 2010, I took Ana’s advice and moved to WordPress and it’s all history from there. I can’t lay out for you step by step what I did every moment, but I can tell you the pivotal posts I read from TGC.
My advice to you though is to read everything you can on Ana’s blog, but in the meantime, let me give you the posts that made me start moving and grooving. Enjoy!!

Well, that should keep you busy for awhile, especially if you IMPLEMENT!! I am not selling you a load of crap here. Ana talks the talk and walks the walk. Look at her blog….it’s PR 4 and mozrank 5. ‘Nuff said!
