I manage two sites. One is an industrial site, of about 30 Pages, which has been reasonably optimized has a PR5, and is # 1 for its main keywords. The other, PR4, about 75 pages, is an artistís home site, and keywords are irrelevant, but returns # 1 for the artists name. I experiment with the art site to learn more about SEO before changing the industrial one. The goal has been to get the art site to PR5.
On the PR5 site every single page is linked by html to every other page.
On the PR4 site there is carefully planned hierarchy. My first attempt had most of the pages with only two exits. A script back button and an html link to the home page.
That should have produced a dramatic shift, but it stayed PR4.
The accumulated knowledge of all of the experts here suggests that the rank should have zoomed, but it didnít, and itís frustrating.
Can anyone make any comments or suggestions?
