Problem: Even though we have good PR on parts of our site some of the more critical areas have either 0 PR or are Just not seen by Google period.
What I am trying to figure out is the why these pages have 0 PR and why some of our pages are not even listed. Some samples below:
1) For some reason (am not sure why as it was before my time) We have a lot of different versions of our site listed on Google. I.E. www.hgcareers…
js.hgcareers… tech.hgcareers… and so on I am not sure I want Google to see these as they are exact duplicates of our other pages. I don’t care if Google ranks them low but are they effecting the page rank of www.hgcareers.com
by being there?
2) In some cases pages with no incoming links are being spidered and given a page rank while the pages on our main site are not even seen by Google.
An example of this is here: http://hgcareers.com/hr/purch.php?showProduct=1&categoryID=1022
(linked to directly from our site but Google does not see it.) Now we move the to the /hr the beginning making the url hr.hgcarees… http://hr.hgcareers.com/purch.php?showProduct=1&categoryID=1022
Google sees this and it actually has a page rank associated with it even though to my knowledge it has absolutely nothing linking to it. Why is Google seeing the wrong page only?
3) When you go to Hgcareers.com (pr 5) if you click on any of the job categories you are taken to a page with 0 PR, for this example we will click accounting finance. (http://www.hgcareers.com/js/static/search/2/submit_1/jobIndustry_1005/jobs
A search in Google for accounting / finance jobs Calgary will bring us up in the top 3 (There is not much competition for that particular keyword phrase as not many people would use it) so it is defiantly listed by Google. To my knowledge the site should have at least some PR as it is a main component of a PR 5 page. Why is the PR for these job pages 0? What can I do to bring up the PR for pages like this?
Thanks in advance, and sorry for the long questions.
