    Thank you sahil for your valuable article.

    But, in your article, you can even include the mathematical concept behind calculation of PR. I have gone through some sites searching for it and found some useful sites which describes the way of calculating Page Rank.

    CYBERINDIAN ARTICLE

    COMPAR ARTICLE

    I found that in those articles, Google page rank is calculated based on the Number of Inbound Links (IBL). More illustrations on calculation of Page Rank is explained in those articles. I hope those will be useful for all here.

    Not sure how good you know about PR since i found something might not correct

    High PR not necessary to get high traffic from google search but SERP did.

    PR dont affect SERP much, you can see many site listed at the first is low PR. It depends on the keywords, keywords density, domain name etc which play more important role

    Again, PR dont affect SERP much

    Finally, you are not mentioned how to get PR at the end. Make is easy, to get good PR, you need to have quality backlink, that's the only key

    I think you do not know then, PR really effects SERP the site who are listed in Google and have less PR , I have also explained that. That is because of that keywords do not have competitions.

    Not true. Dont simply say somthing if you dont really confirm about that. You can use any keyword to search and you sure found some low PR site listed at more front than high PR site.

    Example: Forex (this is one of the most competitive keyword). And you found the first listed at the google search engine as below
    1. www.forex.com/ (PR=5)
    2. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_exchange_market (PR=6)
    3. www.fxcm.com/index.jsp (PR=N/A)
    4. www.ac-markets.com/ (PR=5)
    5. www.fxclub.com/(PR=4)
    6. www.babypips.com/ (PR=6)

    If you sure you are right, give me any keyword which google list the high PR at the front and low PR at the below, any keyword

    You show only the top three, let me listed down more
    1. www.googlefight.com/ - PR6
    2. www.ufc.com[/url] - PR6
    3. www.fightmagazine.com - PR4
    4.www.explosivefightvideos.com/- PR3
    5. www.metacafe.com/tags/fight/-PR3
    6. www.imdb.com/title/tt0137523/ - PR6
    7.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Combat - PR5

    So, might to explain why imdb.com with PR6 is listed at 6th but explosivefightvideos.com with PR4 listed at the 4th if PR is the key

    PR does not 100% determine the order in which sites are listed, in the search engine results, for a particular key phrase. A high PR site might rank very well for a particular key phrase, but poorly for another key phrase. Hence, it could appear much lower on the search engine results for the term it ranks poorly for, than a page with a lower PR that ranks very well for the relevant key phrase.

    It has to be this way, because otherwise search engine results would lose their relevance. If it wasn't like this, every search you complete on Google would return the exact same results on the home page. I.e. the ten sites with the highest PR, regardless of content.

    However, PR does have some influence. If you search for a very competitive key word, most of the sites on the first page will have decent PR. They may not appear in the exact order of their PR, but you won't see many sites with PR3 or less, on the first page of Google, for competitive keyword searches.

    By way of example, when I search for "host" in Google it returns one page with PR3 low down on the first page of results. All other first page results are PR5 or higher.

    When I search for "business" there is one PR5 on the home page and all other sites are PR7 or above.

    "Forex" - one PR4, all other results PR5 or above.

    Given that there are far more pages with PR4 or below than pages with PR5 and above, it appears logical to assume that PR does in fact have some influence on whether or not a site appears on the first page of Google.

    I'd be interested to hear your views and opinions on this.

    The high PR site listed at the front of the SERP not because of their PR, but other factors. The reason to see many high PR site listed at good position because they are good in SEO.

    I never say PR doesnt affect the SERP but the affect is very small. The most important factor that affecting the SERP are domain name, keyword density, H1H2....,Anchor text, backlink etc. SERP is involving more than 200 factors and PR is only one of them but not the major

    he Google Directory uses a different formula for displaying page rank.

    Instead of the familiar 0-10 system used by the Google Toolbar, the Google Directory uses a ranking from 0-7.

    Google Directory Page Rank is difficult to work with, because no numbers are displayed. All you get is a green and grey bar.

    Very interesting. I note that the default display order in Google directory is set to "Viewing in Google PageRank order".

    Google directory use a ranking from 0~7? where you get this information. As i know, no matter blog, website, forum, directory ect, all it rank from 0~10. The only reason is they have no eanough PR juice to acheieve PR10.

    By the way, how about dmoz.org? It is directory and it is PR8

    Hello...

    Actually I m talking about specifically http://www.google.com/dirhp ... The Alexa of the directory is 1 but the page rank is 7. Basically Google Directory Page Rank is difficult to work with, because no numbers are displayed. All you get is a green and grey bar. An excellent article on interpreting that bar is The Handy Dandy Google Page Rank Figurin' Guide. You must read this guide line . . .
