Why is my (great!) company website PageRank zero?
by finguyen - 10/4/12 9:52 AM
I am seeking advice on PageRank for a small business (legal management consulting firm) that I work for. As a new graduate with little SEO experience (beyond what I have read in SEO for Dummies and conflicting information I have gotten from the internet), I have been tasked to diagnose what is going on with our company website's PageRank.
The problem is that we have a great site with solid design, robust content, and have been around since 2006, yet our PageRank sits at a measly zero. We cannot figure out why.
Here is a quick overview of what we have done:
- The website was set up by people without technical backgrounds in 2006. These were bright liberal arts types who first set up the site using Homestead.
- Then we upgraded the site and started using Squarespace as our design template. Our website redirects to the Squarespace site, where the Squarespace site is masked.
- We have never engaged in any malicious activity, never done anything inappropriate, and have not broken any Google rules (to our knowledge).
- Our site has over 40 backlinks, 30+ pages of quality content (several hundred words each page), we are indexed, our pages have metatags, we use headers/bullets/italics correctly, we link internally on each page, are navigation/user friendly, and have an updated sitemap.
Any advice you would have for me would be extremely appreciated. What are we doing wrong? How can we improve our PageRank? You can find our website here: www.argopoint.com.
I am new at this job; thank you in advance for helping me make a good impression. Also, I have never posted on a forum before, so please excuse any forum etiquette breaches that might arise in this posting!
