What are statistics that people are currently watching on their sites?

for example:
PR
indexed pages
last time your site was cached

what else should i regularly know about my site?

Is Page Rank really all that important??
I'm still very new to all this, so i'm not starting up a debate, i'm asking...a lot of those high PR sites are filled with absolute crap that cant be too interesting for too many people...so i really do wonder about PR.

Monitor your traffic.
Where are your visitors congregating at your site?
How often are your visitors returning?

Also, monitor your keywords rankings.

--------
The content is way more important than the PR. Every now and then I see websites with little or no PR outrank higher PR Websites.

Example:
http://www.google.com/search?sourcei...ale+salt+lamps

Check out how wholesalesaltlamps.com with a big fat PR0, no back links and no content comes up before thesaltoftheearth.com =

Maybe I'm going to far with my geeky thoughts here but I think the only reason it comes up for " wholesale salt lamps " is because it simply has the words " See www.SaltLampCreations.com for Wholesale Salt Lamps "

-I'd note www.saltlampcreations.com is the sister site for www.thesaltoftheearth.com

-------- Those results change everyday but I see them come back and forth so hopefully when you read this or check the google link you will see what Im talking about.

Back to the point.... no I don't think PR has much to do with ranking.

As far as monitoring your website, if you want to rank well I'd definately put a lot of attention to having good original textual content in there. A lot of it.

Then monitor to see what keywords people are finding you with. If you find your coming up #10 for wholesale salt lamps or whatever your target is.... find a way to rank better. Review your content and see if you have your keywords enough in the page without going over board. Then if you think the content is good to go, go get some related links to your industry.

Found a great free website tracking service here, seriously check it out. Free is very good price for this tool....

Hope that helps!

For most statistics I use Google Analytics.

Backlinks - which sites are linking to you

MSN) link:http://example.com/ -site:exmaple.com
Yahoo) link:http://example.com/ -site:example.com
Google) link:http://example.com/

Also, every once in awhile you should type in "your site name" in parenthesis. This will let you find sites that might be stealing your content, redirecting under your name or who knows what else.
