i saw a post here that the big G updated websites pageranks now. and that got me wondering. 1. what does it take to get from 0 to 1., 1 to 2 etc. is there a formula they use?. is it based on changes made, content. keywords. or everything? (does anyone REALLY know?) i got a serious webshop which is my main occupation, and generates a full income (i run it with my brother), and that site is constantly changing. new products, new prices, loads of FB likes etc. but we have been on PR2 for 2 years now. 2. i got an article directory going a few weeks ago, decent traffic already, but it didnt rank up (atleast not at the time i wrote this). will an article directory rank up at all, since most of the articles is spun? (i know there are article directories out there with PR3-4-5-6 etc, but they are far and few between) i decided not to use google to ask this, as i dont wanna get hit with random answers from people on the intergalactic interwebz, i wanna ask the experts (this is where you come in ) cheers!
