I have been using Ibusiness promoter to optimize my website to get a google rank.
This tool gives me info of the top 10 websites that relate to mine and they all hav start dates but my website does not. Is there something I need to do?

Also I am having trouble to get to rank 1, it is a pain in the ass:mrgreen:

Even if you put a start date on Google will know when your pages were first crawled and indexed. Can't see the point myself. As for getting to Google Rank 1...good luck :)

There is more involved than can be answered in a single post/discussion.

Yes, age of a website is a factor. Unfortunately building a website is not "Build it and they will come". It can take months and sometimes years for a website to get to the top position. Depends on the competitive nature of the site.

Takes a lot of work and dedication as there is so much that you should/can do to obtain the top position.

Three top things you need to work on.

Quality content;
Make your content something people want to view. Give them the answers they are searching for. Once this is done lead them to your "Call to Action"

Proper keywords/keyword phrases;
Do your research. What keywords or keyword phrases are people using to find sites in your niche? Then use these in your content and if possible use them in/as important parts of your pages.

Quality IBL's.
Get IBL's to your site. Not just the home page but also to inside pages. Make sure they are from related and sites of good quality. Stay away from link farms and bad neighborhood sites.

If your extremely serious and dedicated to getting your site to the top position. You shouldn't stick to any one tool. Get yourself a small arsenal.

Get yourself a cup of coffee and a snack, get comfortable in your chair and review the following.

I can get you a number one ranking (of course it will be for a phrase like "rancid herring pudding").

That's OK, however remember that PR isn't what is important. What you need to work on is the SERP's

Had the same experience. PR dropped like a lead anchor. But the serp's for my site didn't change.

I'm with colo on this one. Pagerank is not really what you should be looking for. Actual results in the serps are what matters.

I would like agood pagerank and good results in SERP's (as I am sure everyone does)
Actually my website was started in July, so I should be able to get a page rank soon yes?
Also as SEO software can't see my start date, is it because my website is too new?

PR will come naturally.

Make your site an authority site by doing the three things I mentioned in my first post. In addition linking out to other related sites will assist in accomplishing this.

Link exchanges with related sites are ok but do your best to keep them to a minimum. You want to have a higher percentage of one way ibl's to your site. Give other sites a reason to link to you.

Original and regularly adding fresh content are important factors as well. The more consistent you add content the more g will crawl your site.
