Despite what some folks would have you believe, pagerank is still the most valuable asset that any website owner can posess. There is nothing else that can boost your keyword rankings in serps like high PR can (or even just links from high PR pages). A lot of people don't know how to make money from high PR though or how to otherwise use it to their benefit. I'm going to outline some methods here for making money from high PR and other ways to put it to use. -For the purpose of this post, "high PR" will refer to pr7 and higher. -Also, this is not a "how to get high PR" post. -It's a "what to do with high PR once you've got it" post. 1. One of the most effective ways to make money from high PR pages is to sell text links on those pages. Many factors determine the value of a link, including page authority, domain age, mozrank, and most importantly, pagerank. Depending on those factors, you can make a lot of money selling links. None of the link-selling services are very good though, and they all take a very large cut. If you want to sell links, you're best off doing it yourself. You have to be careful, so as to not draw attention from Google. Otherwise, you risk penalization. Generally, if you avoid publicly posting any URLs that you're selling links on, you should be safe. You should keep the amount of outbound links (OBLs) low so that the links you sell are more valuable. Typically, you won't want to sell more than 10-20 links on a page in order to keep OBLs at or under 25. If you start going above this, you will hurt the value of your links, and people won't page as much for them. This is because the "link juice" being passed from your page through the links to their targets will become too diluted. One PR8 page with decent page authoriy, mozrank, and domain age can yield as much as $15,000/month (very high end of the spectrum). At minimum, it could make you $2,000 a month if you do it properly. 2. A variant of the link selling method is to sell blog posts. By the time your homepage has high PR, any new inner pages/posts created will gain PR very quickly. You can sell posts where someone pays a fee, and they send you a post. You then add the post to your site on a new inner page with 1-3 contextual links (your choice) in the post linking back to the seller's website. You and the person who bought the post should both build some backlinks to the post. It should then reach PR2-PR3 very quickly, and the buyer has permanent links coming from that page, and they're contextual, adding more value to them. Meanwhile, you get the value of adding new content to your website, and of course, making money. With lower PR sites, you can sell guest posts on marketplaces such as fiverr. 3. Once you have a couple of high PR pages, you can pass PR along to your other sites and pages. You can begin passing links around to your other sites and building up their pagerank, as well as linking to internal pages and building their PR as well, so that you have more pages to sell links on. You can rank new sites/pages/posts quickly this way. You can even build your own blog network full of pr3-pr6 blogs by passing your link juice from high PR pages sufficiently through several sites and pages. You can then employ #1 or #2 or even both on your private blog network. 4. You can sell blog comments on pages with medium to high PR (you could with low PR too, but it may not be worth the time). This would work similarly to #1, except with this, you'll allow much higher OBLs, and consequently, offer a much lower price. 5. You can offer SEO services to local businesses in your area and use your high PR to boost their PR and get solid rankings for them. You can treat this like #1, building the price of the links into what you charge them, and combine it with link building. Of course, I wouldn't explain it to them that way, or it may confuse them. I hope this helps some of you, and I look forward to the conversations that will come out of this. *Edit: One can use these methods with low or medium PR websites well. It just isn't nearly as lucrative. High PR is where the money is.
