How to fake the PageRank of a website The PageRank of a web page can be faked with a combination of a 301 redirect and cloaking. It works like this: When a search engine spiders visits a web page URL, the server redirects the spider to a web page with high PageRank like Adobe, Yahoo etc. Google assigns the high PageRank to the page with the redirection because it thinks that the pages are identical. When a human web surfer visits the web page URL, the server does not redirect the surfer. That means that the web surfer sees the web page of the faker and the Google toolbar displays the PageRank of the redirected URL. To the viewer, it looks as if the web page has a very high PageRank although it hasn't. It just influences the PageRank display in Google's toolbar. How to check fake Page Rank? If you have scrapebox then you can do this with fake pr checker addons of SB.But if you do not have then you can do this using google search.To check a PR is fake or real of a domain name go to google search.Then type Code: [CENTER]info:domainname [/CENTER] If we want to check Pr of internetzombiemovie.com then we can write this in this way info:internetzombiemovie.com Now hit the search button.If there are no results or if the returned URLs don't match the original URL then it's likely that the PageRank of that domain is fake.
