How to lose your google pagerank in 1 day…

Writing about web page http://www.medicaleducator.co.uk/index.php

Well, we've just updated our website to integrate the blog into the main pages... unfortunately it seems to have obliterated our domains Pagerank info which is a bit of a disaster! Oh well, back to the drawing board from that side!

Looks like we're going to have to work harder....

If anyone wants to give us a bit of feedback about what they think about the site design, feel free to drop a comment!

    Just a quick heads up on your pagerank – the url is being rewritten as http://medicaleducator.co.uk/index.php
    Your old home page, with a PR2 is www.medicaleducator.co.uk/

    Thanks Bristol chaps… We have redesigned the front of the site, and seems to have then lost the updated google pageranks from a recap that I think they did on the 30th Dec…. I imaging they have quite a lot on their plate….

    Hi I need a answer of a question hope you can.

    I have a site suppose
    http://www.itcslive.com and it has PR 5
    Which is suppose hosted in somewhere and suppose it’s ip is

    Now When I am trying to to access website then http://www.itcslive.com is opening. Does that means I will loose PR of the website due to this ip. If so how I can make this stop doing so.

    well, as mention above; it’s not like you actually lost your PR, the PR shown isn’t the actually PR anyway, but just a snapshot which is updated every 3-4 months, this while the ‘real’ PR changes each and every time google visits any of your pages.

    so, don’t fixate too much on the little green bar, it’s just a snapshot to give you some guidance, but it’s only updated every few months.

    also; different, still realted; make sure you don’t have double pages:
    for example:

    these are 4 times the same page, but to Google they’re 4 different pages, so what you need to do is to pick 1 of them as the page you want to use, you want everybody to use, and redirect the other pages to that one, as it might very well be that now they each have different PR, by redirecting these 4 variations of the same page, you actually collect their individual value; it can actually help you a lot to get better rankings

    of course this counts for all pages, it’s just with the homepage that you actually have 4 versions, the rest of your site have 2, with and without the www

    so, make sure to insert this into your .htaccess file:
    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^YOUR-DOMAIN.com [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.YOUR-DOMAIN.com/

    it might not make any difference, but then again, it might make a big difference just as well, it depends whether or not the links coming in are consistant, as long they all point to pages with www, then it will not make any difference, but if you have a lot of links coming in to pages without the www, it will show !!
