This is the first and foremost rule which you should follow to increase Google PageRank. No matter, how much you build links, the first thing is you must have good quality articles in your site. I’ll share my own experience. When I was a newbie blogger, I never knew what was PageRank, link building and those stuffs, I just kept writing Quality Articles and on the PageRank update, I got PR2, that was the turning point of my blogging, then onwards, I started to link build, submit Guest Posts and other methods and now waiting for the PageRank to increase again. You must have understood, Only high quality articles are necessary to get PR(PageRank) rather than Link Building.
2.) Regular Updates:
And the second important thing is, you have to update your Blog once in three days with Fresh and Quality Content. This makes Google have a Trust on your site and assigns your site a good Google PageRank.
3.) Interlinking Posts:
When you write posts, find the best keywords in the post and interlink your previous posts in your site. This helps in two ways, First one is Google crawls the previous posts too and on the other hand when readers read your articles, they check out the interlinked posts too, and you get traffic for those old posts too. And one important thing, do not spam your post by interlinking posts too much, which Google hates.
4.) Guest posting:
You spend time to write posts for your site, spend little time to write for other sites too, write some posts with an author bio of yours containing 2 links linking to the best posts in your site. Do remember, submit posts only to High PR Sites.
5.) Comment, Comment and Commenting:
