    I have just read something interesting on Wikipedia about PageRank:

    And I was wondering how easy would it be to actually do the above and spoof your websites PageRank? It could be quite useful. :)

    this happened to me recently, had just purchased a domain that i would use later so i redirected it to a PR3 domain i had thru cpanel ... weeks later it had the PR of the target site, and the weird thing is when i checked the backlinks of the new domain, GG was showing the backlinks of the original PR3 site.

    guess it would be useful if your flipping a new site?

    yes you can do it, however I think it's pretty sh*tty thing to do. But people can use tools to verify you are doing it.

    I suppose if someone was so stupid that they didn't use one of the many PR verifiers out there before they bought your site it might work. I think it's a dumb idea because when some does find out its fake you'll lose all credibility.

    You can raise your page rank just from getting a lot of traffic. I have a domain that only gets about 10k visitors a month of junk traffic and its a PR 3.

    yes, you can. I don't recommend it, but you can do it! Here is a tutorial:

    that is not true. Page rank is unaffected by traffic. You are thinking of alexa

    If you have an unindexed website on Google (which most probably was banned sometime ago), and you forward a PR website to that website.. will that website be included and have a PR?
