    We all know some people wants to have high PageRank to sell advertising inks (which is against Google's terms).
    Apart from this, do you think PageRank is important?

    Not really. Unless you are selling links, it doesn't mean much. It's a little bit of an ego boost when a site gets a high PR, but I have some sites with low PR but good keyword position in the SERPs and good traffic that come up better in the SERPs than other sites with higher PR. Although PageRank is good, give the the traffic over PR any day.

    I think PR is important, many internet users can easily visit you site if you have a high page rank.

    Recently I've started looking at the content more than at the page rank of some particular site. For me and for my clients, the content is much more important.

    It depends on your targets of marketing. Sometimes, pagerank is just to help for ranking in google. However, Pagerank 5 may not be listed on top 10 search meanwhile pagerank 2 can do.

    According to me, Pagerank is not most importance because it shows just popularity of website. Instead of giving importance to pagerank, I think that you should give importance to search engine pagerank.

    How can you be so sure? There are sites with lower PR, ie PR1-PR3, but can get more visitors from sites with high PR, ie PR5 and up.

    I think PR is only important to the site owner, it shows that they are maintaining a healthy site for others to view

    Couple of years ago, PR is king, it is a core metric to rank a site. Now PR is devalue by Google; I am not selling links nor run link exchange campaign, so PR is not important to me.

    High PR means you have good quality content and backlinks. But as compared to traffic, it has no such importance

    One thing I would remind all of you guys.

    If PR is not important and only for selling Links, why PR is still alive ?


    PR - determines the quality of a particular page.
    PR - Increases the revisit rate and crawling preference.
    PR - determines the authority of a link.


    If you get High Authority Links, you will get boost up in SEO. And no wonder why still Google Keeps the PR concept because the above factors.

    I go in between. It is still a factor in having a good rankings in SERPs but not as important as other factors. You shouldn't be obsessed about getting higher PRs.
    Though, you should find more high PR relevant websites where you should do your link building. You should also know guys that PR isn't a factor that increases traffic.
    Traffic is more important for a lot of kinds of websites. I think you should put your efforts in link building for traffic not for PR.

    Do you mean the quality content is not as important as traffic?
