Google: We Donít Plan On Updating PageRank Again

You can quit obsessing over PageRank and wondering when the toolbar will be updated:
It was pretty clear last month that PageRank is dead, when Google’s John Mueller (who has pretty much taken over for Matt Cutts when it comes to communicating these types of things to Webmasters), said, “PageRank is something that we haven’t updated for I think over a year now, and we’re probably not going to be updating it going forward, at least in the Toolbar PageRank…”

The subject came up again in a Webmaster Help thread. This time he said (via Search Engine Roundtable):
I wouldn’t use PageRank or links as a metric. We’ve last updated PageRank more than a year ago (as far as I recall) and have no plans to do further updates. Think about what you want users to do on your site, and consider an appropriate metric for that.
