Welcome to the first post on our new blog; we hope you will enjoy our posts.
If you use a plugin that shows you the Google pagerank of the page you are on, it won’t show any details if you are on a ssl page (with https instead of http).
But you can use our multiple page pagerank checker to get the pagerank of those sites.
Google+ and Twitter automatically use https so your browser plugin fails to show the pagerank. But using our site you can get the values, for example, plugging in links to my Google+ and Twitter profiles to the multipagerank text box:
shows a pagerank of 3 and 4 respectively. If you look at those pages with a plugin to show pageranks of the page you are on, they show no value (because the protocol for the pages is https).
Google doesn’t value nofollow links in determining search results. Since Twitter uses all nofollow links, Google fails to take advantage of Twitter user links to sites. But not all search engines fail to use this data.
Google+ make the first link into the special details after the post and makes that a link that Google does use in determining search rankings.
In my opinion Google is foolish to ignore Twitter user links but for the time being that is what Google is doing (as I understand it).
Alexa also doesn’t show you the site ranking if the site is https. So plugins to display the Alexa rank will also be blank for https pages. Using our site, that data is shown.
