It was a little over 15 months ago that I started my plans for my first personal finance blog. I had been reading more and more personal finance blogs in the months leading up to the decision and I finally made the leap. It was certainly a leap of faith. Spending over $100 without any guarantee of building anything successful was a huge step for a person who was barely making ends meet. That $100 was more than my wife and I spent eating out in an entire month, so that says something about how much spare money we had to throw around.
For those of you who don’t know or haven’t already seen my reflection piece on the social interactions at FinCon or only know me from my primary blog (20’s Finances), I attended the Financial Blogger Conference in Denver this past weekend.

Do you want to know how to increase I have been blogging for practically one year. In this period of time, I have built up one site that is now a PR 4, several with PR 3’s, and some of my newest sites already have PR 2 (which isn’t that hard to achieve). While I have been around long enough to know that pagerank doesn’t mean that much in the long run, I do know that it counts for something. At the very least, getting a high pagerank (4 or more) is an affirmation of all of your hardwork that you have been put in. Many of you might be wondering how to increase your pagerank, so I thought I would give you some of my thoughts on why some sites get a higher pagerank than others. I should point out that this is all speculation and there is never any way to know what goes on behind the scenes at Google.
