I set my website up around 6 months ago and the words google page rank kept coming up. I did a search in google and added the code to find I have a ranking of 3 for my site.
I am still unsure what this means, I understand the higher the ranking the more your site is rated by google, but what actually pushes your ranking up? Also my site can still no be found under the relevent keywords in google (I got to page 48 before giving up yesterday) any reason why?
Basically I am asking what the ranking means and what methods help it?
