    Yes, PR0 is better it means that your website is getting some recognition in Google. If you see technically there is not much advantage whether it is 0 or NA, but yes, you can be happy that it got something from nothing.

    This is one of the biggest confusion when it comes to the difference of PR0 and PR N/A.

    Remember that the tool you use to see a PR value only uses the value from 0-10. That means, 0.123 or 0.567 can't be detected which falls into account that all tools that uses the value from 0-10 is not accurate. YES! The result you see from whatsoever add on you use to measure PR is NOT ACCURATE.

    PR0 means the link value is higher than 0 but less than 1. Which can't be detected by any tools. PR N/A however doesn't really mean that PR0 is higher. It could mean something like the link value hasn't been calculated yet for some reasons (mainly because of quality), or there are some changes that occur that cause search engines or Google to re-calculate the value of the link. OR---- VERY LOW QUALITY LINK. However again, there are still some reasons behind the real value of PR N/A, besides from what your naked eyes see using these tools.

    Is PR0 is better than PR N/A? The answer is yes and no. There is no concrete answer about that. As I've said a while ago, what you see using those PR tools is not accurate for they can't calculate the exact value of all links. Only Google does.

    The most important thing about a link today is the ability to send targeted traffic to your site whether it is PR0 or PR N/A.

    I have always thought that N/A means that Google hasn't ranked you yet, it hasn't gathered enough info about your site. 0 means that Google started counting.

    Traditionally, that's what many people think. But over the years, Google has made many changes when it comes to PR to the point that PR tools can't detect them. You may think that PR N/A may not pass value to the other pages. That's not the case anymore. Again, the name "N/A" only derived from those tools. I am not sure if that name exists in Google. But it might not.

    Google can rank you if your "Page" is N/A according to any tools. Remember also that the way Google calculates PR is different from those tools out there. So don't bother yourself in thinking too much to that. All you need to do is to build links that send targeted traffic to your site and you will be good.

    Google Page Ranks are 0 to 10.. If you found a web page which have N/A it does mean Google hasn't assigned any value to this page.

    it doesn't the page can't ranked it takes time to get PR since Google pr updates 4 time in one years BUT It do nothing with 0 PR because most of time I get PR 0 when my article get indexed

    Google PageRank (PR) depends upon back links of a website.
    No doubt, PR 0 is better than N/A. N/A means no back link or not indexed/valued back links. If Google likes your website at an initial stage, it gives you PR 0.

    See the Google PR algorithm here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PageRank

    It's funny how people think Wikipedia is the God of all information.
