Sure it is important. The problem is, you and I, and the rest of the known world (but for a select group of Google employees) don't know what a given web page PR is these days. I say, good riddance to the "foolbar", and those chasing PageRank.

If you want to build good backlinks you should go for pages with high PR so you can be trusted by Google. Yes, it is still important.

@Lemar, you missed the point. No one but a few people who work at Google know what a given pages PageRank is these days. You can guess, but you'll never know the true value of PageRank going forward.

Well, ranking factor depends on Page Rank. And no one doesn't know exactly how it works and what needs to do to achieve PR but most of the SEO's they just focus on increasing the PR where they don't have any knowledge about it.

That's one of hundreds of signals. Albeit a strong one, but not anything to focus on because you can't tell what a pages PR is any longer.

Sorry, but that statement just doesn't make any sense to me.

I'm under the understanding that now it's all about trustflow and citationflow? But that those are also "made up" by search engine optimization firms?

That said, regardless of "what it's about" I'm also under the understanding that nothing has really changed in the overall philosophy of what you should be paying attention to. That's creating good content that people want to link to and laying out your site in a manner that is easy for a robot to read and analyze.

In other words, keep doing the same stuff and the terms are just trendy semantics.

Give that man a gold star !!!! Finally someone "Gets It"!!!

Thank God Google did away with public viewing of Page Rank so all these self proclaimed scam artist SEOers would stop ripping off people - course now the claim MOZ metrics matter and they use MOZ to scam people..

SEO has not changed in 10 years - don't care what anyone says or claims. I have websites well over 10 years old and some that have never been changed or edited and still rank in the top. I have never once been hit by any Google updates and never will be....

Maybe if you took more time reading and learning you would actually get someplace... PageRank has always been useless and always will be - NOT TO MENTION ONLY GOOGLE KNOWS WHAT A PAGES RANK IS ...

No such thing as high page rank domain <--- this does not exist!

Google toolbar PageRank data was removed Spring of 2016 which included feeding any of the sites claiming to know a page's PageRank.

Maybe said SEOs should read our Page Rank: What It Is, What It Isnít and How To Get Some thread.

Do you have a crystal ball or some kind of insider information to know what a page's PageRank is? (see above)

Surprising to see that an old question such as this has stirred up such a debate! Guess we're still hung up on PR.

You are repeating that which has already been posted in the thread @stevie. Why would think that anyone want to read this twice or more times??

Oh, did the OP ask for a definition, or was it about how important PageRank is??


It apparently will never go away.

Here is a question for you: How do we determine that a page has high PR?

Page rank is powered by google and started from 1 to 10. Google visit site and update page rank every 4 month it will incease the rank.
