- Help with getting a page rank of 1

I started up a web site www.dogsandcatspetshop.com about 4 months ago
and I still have a page rank of zero and google still shows I have no
links. I have 2 questions:
1. I only want a page rank of 1 at least. Is there anything on my
site which is stopping me get a page rank of about 1. I acknowledge I
do not deserve a high page rank due to the lack of content, links,
2. Is there any reason that google shows my site as having no links.
I actually have about 30 or 40 links. I have read in these newsgroups
that google only shows a few of the links - but surely it should
register at least 1 or 2 links.
I am not in a big rush to get higher in the search engines as this is
not my main business, but I wanted to see if anyone with more
experience could see a major error I have made or overlooked,

Re: Help with getting a page rank of 1
You probably already do have a pagerank. Google only updates (exports) the
toolbar pagerank every 3 months or so. So, the toolbar is still showing the
pagerank you had the last time a pagerank export was done. The toolbar
pagerank isn't the "real" pagerank - just a snapshot of the pagerank at a
particular point in time. Your "real" pagerank - the one Google uses - could
already be 1 or higher.
Hang in there, as the next pagerank export will probably occur in the next
month or so. The last one happened late September / early October.
Similarly, Google only updates their backlinks every few months. And they
never show all the links they've found, only a representative sample. It's
likely they know about your 30-40 links. The backlink update should come
around the same time as the pagerank update. It will probably show a few
links to your site then.
For a better estimate of how many links there are to your site, search
link:dogsandcatspetshop.com at MSN or
linkdomain:dogsandcatspetshop.com at Yahoo.
While you wait for the Google updates, work on making sure your site's in
order, creating new content, and getting quality (relevant) links to your
