Google has made a minor PR (Page Rank) update in the month of February 2012, and to my surprise, Techo Latte has been given a page rank of 3. Techo Latte is a “new” blog, and there’s no other reason why I’m this surprised. Generally, Google starts ranking blogs/websites with PR 1 in the initial months and eventually depending on the popularity, number of quality backlinks, and the domain age, the rank is increased (or it remains the same). Awarding Techo Latte a PR 3 is something that really I didn’t expect.

It also depends on how old your domain/site is. Sometimes, Google might even consider the quality and originality of the contents of your blog.
Apart from all this, a blog must be optimized for search engines in order to rank better in search results. WordPress users generally use the All in one SEO plugin to tweak their posts and optimize effectively.
