    Hello people,

    In the past days I read a lot about SEO and ranking. So far, I purchased backlinks for my websites ( niche + PPD) to increase my ranking.

    Well, idea has come to my mind that i could use my freshly acquired skills to help increasing the ranking of my brothers website.
    My brother is an actor, made wp-blog, did a hell of a lot CSS-customizing,did photoshop and it looks really professional.

    For the time being I created backlinks manually by signing up on actor networks and asking his actor mates to put the link on their site. Now, the ranking is 1. Basically his whole life, identity and photos are being shown on the page, so I´m extra careful.

    My instinct tells me, that usage of backlink service is a bad idea here... But how can I rank it higher?
    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance ;)

    If you're already #1 in rankings, what more do you want?

    Oh sorry, i just read my text again.

    The thing is its that page rank level, where 10 is best.
    I got a 1/10 there, due to bad backlinking I guess.

    He got a lot of positive feedback for the site and already had 3 assignments because of this.
    Average of 3 (which is ok since hits highly targeted) visitors a day.
    It´s just that I want him to show up higher in the search rankings for somehing like ("my town" actor) or ("random drama" "my brother")

    Sorry for the confusion

    Bro,

    By Page Rank Level, I assume you are referring to PR. Correct me if I'm wrong but it's a metric that measures a site's authority and "juice". Generally, the higher it is, the better.

    A site always starts with PR0, so if your brother's website already has a PR of 1, that means it's starting to gain importance / authority. It's actually a sign of progress. :)

    Congrats to you and your brother for the #1 rankings and the new assignments.

    If you're ranking #1 for the keywords you want, no need to worry about PR (pagerank). If you're not ranking #1 for the keywords, then you need to optimize your title tags and/or add more content to support the additional keywords you want to rank and build more links to those pages to rank them.

    I am presuming your keyword is your brothers name ? unless your brother is already famous that should be a pretty easy one.

    I would advise you to get all available twitter/facebook/instagram etc etc in case your brother is ever to get well known.

    You can get an imbd link,wikipedia link and the links from his production house or movies website.Just add his website,twitter and facebook page to his business card and insist him to mention it to his new clients.

    Perhaps you might look into a good press release service, I've seen plenty of them on BHW (just do your homework and read reviews.) Make sure the article is well written. You can have it talk about certain projects your brother has acted in ("random drama"), and/or the town he lives in ("my town"). Have the press release link directly to your bros site.

    Then make a Wikipedia entry for your bro, and add his name into the entries for "your town" and "random drama." Make all of these entries by linking/referencing the press release. The content will be much less likely to be removed from Wikipedia if it appears to be newsworthy. This should help not only with the rankings, but it will also give you another traffic source.
