Here the the some useful tips to improve Page rank

  1. Include High quality content that users want and will share with others.
  2. Submit your site's URL (web address) to various web directories like Open Directory Project (ODP), Yahoo!, and LookSmart and to reference sites like Wikipedia, to industry-specific expert sites, blogs, etc..
  3. Publicize your site to everyone with whom you communicate. Your site's URL should be on every piece of communication e.g. on your business cards, letterheads, newsletters, brochures, press releases, fax cover sheets, email signatures etc.
  4. Write a newsletter about latest updates on your site and send it out to encourage people to visit to find interesting site.
  5. Provide a Rich Site Summary (RSS). RSS is also known as Really Simple Syndication. It is a lightweight XML format for distributing news headlines and other content on the Web.
  6. Ask personally other high-quality related websites to link to your website.
  7. The site should have other sites linking to it. Not all inbound links are equal. Sites which are highly ranked themselves are more important than lower ranked sites. Avoid services that add to link farms on lots of pages.
  8. Multiple blog links to a given page can very quickly increase that single page's ranking. Since blogs quote a portion of your text on their pages, your page will get a high ranking for that snippet.
  9. Check out the worth of site before you link back. 
  10. Tell the press about your site.
  11. Keep your website up. If your website is not accessible for an extended period of time, search engines may reduce the ranking of your site.
  12. Translate your website into foreign languages.
  13. Avoid wily tricks to improve your ranking. If Google suspects that you are trying to deceive its web crawler and thus its users by including hidden text, misleading or repeated words, pages that don't match your sites description, deceptive redirects, duplicate site or pages, or other disingenuous tactics, then Google may delist your site from its index. 
  14. Search engines considers the factors like how fast a site is gaining links, how long the links persist, when your site acquired the links, the click through rate (CTR) of Google's search results, cached pages, favorites on the Google Toolbar, the stickiness of your site (i.e., the effectiveness of your site in retaining individual users). So these and hundreds of other factors like these should be considered by sitowners.

Besides the above factors, following factors also matters a lot:

  1. The HTML/XHTML for the site should be valid. 
  2. Search engines can only read a portion of a long title. Stay in the 60-90 characters, 10-20 words range. The sitename + keywords should be upfront.
  3. Use proper meta tags - though their importance has decreased in the past few years.
  4. If your site has lots of folders and subfolders, then the site should have a sitemap with major site tree structures linked. So that search-engine robots can traverse the tree.
  5. Use CSS to place your content before navigation elements on your page. This will avoid the navigation element snippets showing up on search engine site descriptions.
  6. Read up Google Information for Webmasters.
  7. All search engines have "Add a Site" link - add your URL for their robots to visit. 
  8. Keep Keywords relevant to the content on the site. 
  9. Start a blog at blogger. Edit the template to include a link to your own site on every page. Blog regularly about your industry. 
  10. If you are going to pay for traffic, you'll have to experiment with keywords and prices and the actions people take after arriving on your site. There are no magic formulas to price. One thing you can do is to strip away all extraneous information from the landing page so that the user has only the desired path to take/action to perform when they come to your site - be it signing up for a newsletter or buying that widget.
  11. Submit you sitemap to Google sitemaps for possible visit. No harm in making it easier for Google to visit you. 
  12. Avoid unprofessional SEO Services 
  13. Participation in forum is another great thing to obtain more backlinks. Despite getting reciprocal links through forum, another advantage of forum is that you can add a signature tag of your website for every post in the forum. That can help to build up the reputation of your site too.
  14. Article marketing is also an effective way to build more backlinks to your site. You can write an article about anything you like, submit them to article directory for approval and the content carrying your website can be circulated to many sites through feed subscription. Articles written for press releases and newsletters are a great way to solicit links. Submit the articles to Chamber of Commerce newsletters or newsletters in your target markets. Most editors are hungry for information for their audience and would love to publish your article(s). Don't be afraid to reuse articles for different groups of readers and always provide a link back to your site in the content. Links back to your website build your internet popularity. Date your articles and write them new when they need to be refreshed. Don't forget to also post them as pages on your own website, taking care to reword them a bit so they don't become duplicate content. 
  15. Provide inside linking to your website. For example you can provide a link of your previous and next articles on an article page. Or you can provide a list of related articles so visitor can remains a long time on your website. 
  16. Keep in touch with your website. If you do, you will get results from your statistics analyzer very soon that you are getting visitors and your page rank is improved.
  17. Above all please keep in mind only sustained efforts will get the best result. So be patient and  plan your own strategy for getting that obscure better PR.
