Mymagicfundas Got Google PageRank 2 from 0

This post suggests some imperative blogging stuffs for the bloggers to get good PageRank.


My blogging journey

Last year, the same day (Dec 9th), I went to meet an internet journalist, Mr.Badrinathan, who by chance resides near my home. He has been giving training to people in the field of blogging and internet marketing. My blogspot blogs was greatly affected by Google Penguin updates as there were no social signals.

Hence, I went to his house to discuss about blogging. I was staggered by his knowledge and came to know that he has been surviving in this field since 1998 and has been making regular online income from various sources. I requested him to teach me some imperative blogging stuffs to enhance my blogging skills. He immediately agreed, reviewed some of my blogs and suggested me to switch over to WordPress. Then he simply replied me “I am telling that you will learn blogging by yourself and you no need to undergo any classes or training”. Initially, disappointed with his words I had come to any idea that blogging with WordPress was going to be a difficult ride.

It was then; I got connected with ShathyanRaja, blogger through FaceBook. With help of Shathyan, I have become friends with many co-bloggers from whom I have learned many essential blogging nuances. As I have always mentioned in my previous blog posts, I have been greatly inspired by Mr. Atish Ranjan, blogger who had provided some good blog sources to read and who had guideded me to learn the basics of blogging. I gained my confidence through these support systems and started to read many blog posts related to SEO, writing and so on. I practiced on writing valuable comments and blog posts effortlessly. Being Engineering graduate and with the help of a gentle push from my fellow bloggers I decided to pursue my ambition of starting a tech blog with WordPress.

With the unremitting support and guidance of Atish, I founded my blog “MyMagicFundas” on the 16th of Jan 2013. Google updated the PageRank on 4th of Feb 2013. As my blog was barely 20 days old and due to limited no. of posts, my blog received a PageRank of zero. I devotedly continued to publish quality posts for my readers and I understood the importance of creating backlinks, that too specifically with blog commenting and guest blogging.

From the day of the initiation till now, I have contributed 20 Guest posts on various blogs. I also recognized the importance of social presence and made my presence felt in social networks and blogging communities now and then.


PageRank 2 for Mymagicfundas

On Dec 6th 2013, Google update the PageRank for all blogs and I got PR 2 for my blog “Mymagicfundas”.


Even though, this is not a big achievement, but being a part time blogger, I was able to spend only very few hours for blogging as I had to work on family front too. Moreover, I have not reached this achievement for my blogspot blogs. Hence I feel good that my hard work has helped me to get a good signal from Google. Even with a PageRank of zero, most of my blog posts hold good SERP as I always do a little keyword research and present the posts with basic SEO.

I had been waiting for some time for the Google PR update so that I can improve the visibility of my blog to get good advertisers and sponsored posts. Currently I monetized my blog with Google AdSense and funding has been quite good. Also I have been going over the idea of Affiliate Marketing and hence have been concentrating to improve my blog traffic. Now I feel comfortable with WordPress blogging as the plug-ins do magic here.


Google PageRank and its benefits

If you’re a newbie blogger, you might ask “What is PageRank and how important it is?  I would say “Yes, of course”

Here are the essential details of PageRank 

Google PageRank measures the importance of a web page and it was developed by two Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. According to Matt cuts, head of web-spam team at Google “PageRank is an opinion from Google about how reputable the web page, it includes not only the links to that page but how important those links are” and it typically updated once in 3 or 4 months. In simple words, you’ll be given PageRank based on the no. relevant and reputable links along with your quality content. Am I confusing you? Check this video for better understating.


Benefits of having good PageRank

Having good PageRank has various benefits like

1. Credibility and authority of the blog could be improved.

2. Possibility of receiving more comments and guest post proposals

3. Opportunity to get good advertisers and sponsored posts.

4. Fast indexing of blog posts by search engines.

Tips to get good PageRank

I would suggest you to follow these points to get good PageRank.

1. Publish regular blog posts with good quality (3 per week)

2. Contribute your quality guest posts and comments to various blogs having good PageRank.

3. Stay active in popular social networks, add & follow influential bloggers in your niche and improve the social presence of your blog.

4. Take part in blogging communities like Blokube, Bizsugar, Blog engage and do vote and share your fascinated blog posts.

5. Use some awesome blogging tools like buffer, justretweet etc to increase the targeted traffic to your blog.

6. Do keyword research and select commonly searched keywords to use in your blog post naturally. Don’t stuff keywords in the post, particularly long tail keywords. Just use proper keywords related to the title of the post and its synonyms logically in the post.

7. Get your blog linked to few trusted directories, social bookmarking sites and forums.

8. Use Google Analytics and Webmaster tools regularly to track the links and visitors of your blog.

Out of these 8 points, I missed to do 7th point, will implement it soon.

Not only to get good PR, the about listed points would help you to get striking Alexa rank.


Final words 

I feel that my worthy blog posts, social presence, guest blogging & blog commenting activities have helped me to get PageRank 2 for my blog. In a blog, I’ve seen the meaning of PR 2 is “the good news, you can improve”. I used the tool “Fruition” and confirmed that my blog stays safe from Google animals. Google and other search engines always expect unique informative posts. So, I recommend you to follow your own style and keep yourself updated with latest trends to do an enhanced blogging.

I got into the blogging world due to being inspired by many bloggers. I want to spell out their names here and mention their blogs to show my indebtedness.

  3. Hey ma’am,

    Impressive write-up, congratulations on your achievement and i hope you’d achieve better in next updates.

    I would say that Mr.Badrinathan was right, in blogging you learn everything by yourself, all you have to do is to observe other blogs and moreover you can make good relationships with fellow bloggers to learn from them. Most of the times you would need their help and it’s better to network with them.

    I liked the tips part, just like you i haven’t implemented the 7th part yet.

    Thanks for sharing 🙂


    1. Yeah, he was right Siraj 🙂

      I’ve requested him to teach blogging but he confidentially replied that “I’ll learn by it myself”. Now I feel good and understand that the self learning is best.

      Thanks for comment and wishes bro, keep showing your presence here 😛

  7. Hello Madam,

    Congratulations for Pagerank2. 🙂

    It was very difficult to achieve PR2 as Google has changed many algorithms for SERP and Pagerank. In this scenario many of top bloggers lost their Pagerank but you have shown how to hold the position in the online era and can sustain & improve the most valuable Google PR.

    1. Thanks for your wishes Sagar 🙂

      Yes, Google is constantly changing its algorithm but I feel that if we come with quality blog posts with basic seo and good social presence, it would be easy to get love from search engines. I did the same here.

      Thanks again for sharing your views, come again 🙂

  8. I think I was right when I told you you do not need any training in blogging. You have come to this stage entirely on your own-right? You are a self learner and that is the number one quality for a blogger. Keep it up and congrats.

    You are not indebted to me.


    1. Yeah sir, you was right! But I got stimulated by you and Atish and that made me to reach this level. Timely suggestions, guidance, help n all from the bloggers whom I’ve been mentioned in the post had helped me a lot to grow this blog. Now I learnt almost basic blogging stuffs and should move on to the next level of blogging 🙂

      Thanks again for your great inspiration sir, keep supporting me 🙂

  9. Hi Nirmala,

    Congratulations indeed 🙂

    I think you have done a commendable job and worked very hard on your blog, so you certainly DO deserve this. I liked reading through your post and knowing how you started your journey….yes, things are never easy for a newbie, but if we find helpful fellow bloggers along the way, the blogging journey becomes so much more enjoyable, isn’t it?

    Great list of helpful bloggers too 🙂

    Thanks for sharing, and congrats once again 🙂

    1. Hmm.. yes Harleena! I enjoyed a lot while learning blogging with fellow bloggers and specifically with Atish. He had helped and encouraged me a lot. In my initial days of blogging, when the bloggers hesitated to accept my guest post, he was the one who readily accept my post and inspired me to write a lot. He introduced Sue Neal and her blog to me, there i got some beneficial things related to writing.

      Thanks for your great wishes Harleena, it means a lot to me 🙂 🙂

  10. I will like to say that people achieve success sometimes due to luck but yours is all because of hard work…Nirmala, I have to learn lot from you…..I have seen you working really very hard..You have been active on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. The best is the thing that you write about stuff you know which makes your content top class..

    1. Hi Mohit,

      Am really pleased with your great appreciation comment 🙂

      Yeah, i worked hard for my blog and I know the importance of staying active in social media. Also i know that guest blogging and blog commenting have good value and leads the blog to grow.

      Glad you’re gonna learn from me, I appreciate it 🙂

      Thanks for coming and commenting, keep doing it 🙂

  11. Hey Nirmala,
    I could not wait any longer for commenting on this post because I know you shared this article from your heart 🙂

    OK… Getting higher PR is a great news, however, I feel like it has only less value comparing to any other factors.

    For e.g. you may heard about which is the FUTURE WordPress. Definitely will become the NEXT blogging platform.

    However, still the site’s PR is just ZERO. The company was expecting PR 6-7 but the current PR was horrible!!

    So I would be focusing more on things like traffic and revenue which would be more worthier than focusing on PR 🙂

    Anyway, thanks for sharing your awesome post.

    1. Yes Shahzad, all words came from my heart and it is real 🙂

      I do agree with your views, even I specified in this post that “Even my PR was 0, my blog posts holds top place in search engines and helps me to get good organic traffic”.

      Hmm.. as you told, its good to concentrate traffic and monetization ways to improve the performance of the blog.

      thanks for your genuine comment, keep visiting here 🙂

  12. Hello Maam,
    First of all I would like to congrats you for reaching PR 2, really having more PR will give more benefit. Your experiences here are great for us to learn more. Currently my site has entered into the entry hope that i will follow all these tips and will reach PR soon.

  13. Hiiii Nirmala mam,

    At first, Congrats to get PR-2. i think your Blog deserve more PR than this. But PR 2 from 0 is also good. your all Blog post are just awesome.

    mam, you mentioned above that you are a part-time blogger but your hard work seems more than full-time bloggers. i am big fan & follower of Mymagicfundas, so i think this Google pagerank update is really celebratable for us.

    Amit Kumar

  14. Hi Nirmala,

    I’m glad that your blog got PR 2 after the latest update! Well, there’s nothing to wonder about it as it all comes down to your hard work!

    One of my old blog, which, incidentally, I haven’t been updating very regularly, got PR 1 from 0! My new blog, SBT, was barely a month old while PR updated. It got a score of 0! So, my start is similar to yours 🙂

    Let’s hope that I clock a PR 2 (or hopefully more) with the next update 🙂

    After going through your tips, I’ve realized that I’m doing many things right and some things still needed to be done!

    I still think that there is room for improvement in what I do. What say?

    I hope (and I know) that your blog will attain better PR in the future 🙂


    1. Thanks for your kind wishes Arun and its good to know about your blogs.

      I am seeing you everywhere these days and this shows your passion in blogging 🙂

    Then again, a huge thanks for the mention. It’s a true honor 🙂

    Now, once you are into PR scale, it’s time to look for high PageRanked pages and attempt to get back links from there. It will help you to retain your current position and improve in future updates. My best wishes for you.

      Thanks for your suggestion and wishes, will follow the better path as you told to get a good PR by next time too.

  20. Dear Madam,
    Congratulations !!! for the coveted rank.
    I am your silent follower, your posts are really very helpful for newbies like me. One thing which I appreciate is you have a wide variety of posts, for all genre and of course your writing skills are great.

    In your post you have mentioned 8 tips but I think one more important tip no. 9 must be added to the list which is DESTINY,LUCK whatever we call it. I think it is also needed. As it happens that though the site might have good detailed posts plus all above mentioned 8 tips still it may not have good Alexa rank as well as Google page rank.

  21. A BIG BIG Congrautlions for getting PageRank 2 Mam!! Your blog deserve atleast PageRank 3!!

    BTW I would also like to thank Google for giving my 6 months old blog PageRank 2. Now going to implement your tips so that in next update Google can give me atleast PageRank of 4 😛

    Congo Again 🙂

  22. Glad to see your hard work finally paying off, when i first visited your blog at its earliest stage, i saw your potentials and like i always encouraged you, i knew you would grow so i won’t say i am surprised to see you grow this much already.
    You are one hard working blogger who i admire for your great ways of relating with people you come across, you made a nice impression from the first day you left a comment/compliment on my blog and being a member of same comment group on Facebook you always take the first spot every week while i always come behind you, thats an indication of your hard work and i must say you deserve it and more.
    Keep up this way and in no time you will grow even bigger and my blog Netmediablog also got a PR3 in the last update though i had expected more, all the same its encouraging enough to see our hard work appreciated.
    Keep it up and the sky will only be your stepping stone soon.

    1. Thank you so much for your appreciating comment and congrats for getting PR 3 for your blog Nwosu 🙂

      Am so glad that you’ve estimated me already and this means a lot.

      Yeah, am regular to your blog to get some spicy stuffs, keep giving it 🙂

  23. Good news Nirmala, way to go! It wasn’t easy though but you got what you worked for. I kinda become lazy lately and due to school too i decided to reduce my blogging to once a week, that reduced my pace in link building but I’m happy all the same that i managed to have PR1

    Hope you’re having a wonderful week.

  24. Congratulations on this awesome achievement Nirmala,
    It means that Google really favored you:). You see, this is actually and indication to show that hard work pays.

    If not for your working hard, I’m sure you wouldn’t have gotten such result so, i will only urge you to keep on doing what you’re doing, I’m sure you will still achieve more.

    Thanks for sharing.

  25. I have been following your blog since quite a long time and I really love the way you write and I am very happy to know that you have got pr 2. Keep writing useful stuff.

  26. Hi Nirmala! Congratulations!

    Of course Pagerank has disappointed many bloggers the other day. Since PR determines the overall stats and gives the site a reputation, many bloggers tried being mischievous and tried unnatural link building, especially from Africa and Latino while forgetting that Google is always a step ahead from what most of the bloggers are thinking. What most bloggers need is a proper guidance and that is all. You are one among the lucky few, obviously. And the result, is here for everybody to know and learn.

  27. Hi Nirmala,
    Congrats on your achievement after a long journey.
    It is hard to keep up with all the things you need to do with blogging especially when you can only do it part time.
    It is fantastic that you have achieved so much in such a small time
    All the best with the continued success

  28. Hi Nirmala,

    First off I was thrilled to meet you today! Thanks again for the sweets 😉
