    I heard the news that Google has updated Page Rank of sites last February 6. Just wanna ask guys what is your view about Page Rank? Some says that Page Rank is not that important nowadays and also, how do you gauge Page Rank?

    Out of 300++ algorithm, page rank is only one of the ranking factor, PR is devalue to improve SERP. I have seem lot of PR 0 sites beat sites or page with PR.

    Now a day, PR is more important for those who are selling links and domain.

    PR is just showing how much dofollow link juice you have. Of course, the higher PR you gain, the better it is because high PR site is getting crawl more frequent, it is also benefit to your site

    Unless you are selling links (a no-no), PR has little meaning to you. It shows how much trust Google assigns to site, which is passed on by your outgoing links. That link "juice" is divided among all the links on your site.

    The process by which Google assigns PageRank to a particular site is secret. It is reasonable to suppose that some of the factors that determine PageRank also come into play to determine how your site should rank in the SERPs, but there are so many more factors that go into ranking for the search results that the factors shared with PageRank have only a very small effect on the search results.

    As Band and Business Attorney says, PR is not the most important thing for SEO. For result page rankings, aim for great content and interaction with social media. For incoming links and gauging PR, don't stirr blindly at PR only. Aim for similar pages and subject as yours. Quality and unique content is far superior to chasing PR.

    PR is still important. The fact that you PR is among the hundreds of factors that Google consider in ranking your website to their SERPs. But - it does not mean that when you have high PR will you already get good rankings on their SERPs. It only shows you your authority, along with other websites over other websites in that certain category or niche.

    People sometimes sees this as a measurement of how much their page is seen by Google. Perhaps we thought that if we have really have high PR we have quality pages or even a really good and reputable website. Which is the thing when selling/buying links. They are buying/selling links because more people are searching for high PR websites.
    Although the thing about PR is it shouldn't be the subject of obsession by people. Because first we can really gain it by link building. If you can link build it in a quality way, you might even win a high PR link. And Traffic is the one you should be obsessing with. Why? Because Traffic can be ROI (that is if you are selling something or doing advertisements.)

    PageRank isn't as important as it used to be. When it was first introduced in to Google's website ranking algorithm, PageRank played a larger role in how websites were ranked on the SERPS. After years of development and inclusion of new pieces to the G algorithm, PageRank has become a less significant factor in evaluating the reputation of a website. PageRank does still matter, though. Many webmasters and Internet marketers still place a high value on PageRank stats because a higher PageRank means you have far more links coming in to your website than you have going out. PageRank and Alexa traffic values are also still the primary factors for assigning a cash value to a website, so if you plan on selling your site in the future boosting your PageRank should be a high priority.

    Currently, the ranking factors with the most importance seem to be the amount of high quality content placed above the fold, low quantities of ads placed above the fold, quality and authority of the links coming in to your site, and the OVERALL quality of your site as a whole. Individual pages aren't assigned their own rank values anymore. Google crawls your entire site and then assigns it a ranking value based off of the sum of all of your pages. A lot has changed in the last few months so, by the time you read this, things might have changed again. Just make sure you check the post date. ;)

    PageRank is a numeric value that represents how important a page is on the web. Its shows website Health.

    Page rank calculation Formula:


    PR(A) = (1-d) + d(PR(t1)/C(t1) + ... + PR(tn)/C(tn))

    Page rank is the main factor to establish your online business 70% clients always check your website page rank and website age and then they buy any online product....

    Guys if page rank factor is not valueable then no competition here this is like rating factor.

    Regards.

    Really? Buying what stuffs? E-commerce based websites should be more to traffic than PR. PR based on the quality of the page and the number of backlinks it have and nothing more. The more the traffic for your site the better. Why? Because real people are your customers and not the search engines. If you do achieve to get the attention of the public, rankings will boost up and your PR will be far more better than before.

    PR has been gradually devalued by google for the last few years. they only update it every couple months, so really, how important can it be if google doesn't place enough importance on it to update it regularly?

    Pagerank has not any importance. Pagerank shows quality of website because with high pr backlinks, you achieve pagerank.

    High PR is just means that you have enough PR juice or dofollow backlink. The main reason people look for high PR because high PR site get crawl more frequent
