How to Fake a Google Page Rank 10 . . . or any PR you want

So you want to get into link exchanging, but no one wants to trade with you because your page rank sucks.

Guess you need to spoof a reasonable Google PR like a 5, 6 or 7.

Well the good folks at SEOdarkteam (among others) demonstrate how you can spoof or fake a PR 10 or any Page rank you want.

Here’s how you Spoof a Google Page Rank:

1. Buy a domain.
2. 301 Redirect the domain either in you .htaccess, PHP header (anything server side) to a page with the desired page rank. It’s better to redirect to something relevant. For example, if you are doing a mortgage site, redirect to a mortgage site.
for php the code is:

<?php
header(”HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently”);
header(”location:http://www.seoblackhat.com”);
exit;
?>

3. Link to the page with the redirect from another of your sites that gets regularly spidered by Google. Since you use the Alexa Toolbar, you should have several sites that are spidered daily by google.

4. Wait for google update. Google Updates happen about every three months. The last update occured the week of July 15th, 2005.

5. Now you use cloaking software that says:

<?php
if(ip is in list) (list of google IPs){
header(”HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently”);
header(”location:http://www.seoblackhat.com”);
exit;}
else
{
header(’Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1′);
//Show your site
};
?>

The main drawback is that your site will not actually be indexed by Google as long as you are redirecting the Googlebots to your competitors site, so it’s really only good for link selling / trading.

BTW, don’t claim to have a certain PR when you are selling – that’s fraud.

This further illustrates how useless Page Rank has become in measuring a sites importance.

Buyer Beware.

  1. [...] How to Fake a Google Page Rank 10 By Tim Bookmark on del.icio.us | SEO Black Hat has an interesting article on how to give any website an outward appearance of PR 10. It does work (SEO Black Hat points out a PR10 demo site, but it’s a superficial PR10 that only website visitors are able to see, but Googlebots know otherwise. Add a permanent (301) redirect with htaccess or some other means on your website to a PR10 site (eg Google.com). [...]

    If I do not do this step:

    3. Link to the page with the redirect from another of your sites that gets regularly spidered by Google. Since you use the Alexa Toolbar, you should have several sites that are spidered daily by google.

    Will it still work if I place the code:

    In my header?

    Nice trick. But you said its a ‘fake’ rank. Of course it can’t be used to get traffic directly from google, as the site won’t be indexed as long as we have a permanent redirect. But will it be effective in boosting the rank of other pages, by linking to them from this page? Will that boost their ranks?

    What can this be used for?

    Thanks again,
    Ayu
