This question: How to get higher PageRank quickly? was posted in the comment of one of my Blogger blogs where I give away free backlinks. Frankly, unless you are an SEO specialist or SEO consultant selling SEO services, you don’t need high PageRank.
It is a myth that having high PageRank will guarantee top listing in search engine results.
However, if you are after PageRank for ego reason then I will show you the shortcut method which I used for this blog.
