Is PageRank really that important?
It's important to get links from highly ranked pages for SEO purposes. You don't need to be a highly ranked site to have a listing in search engines. But Google is constantly changing their rules so who can say if that will always be true.
Are you sure you want to delete this post?
I think the Page Rank was being used by the Google crawlers to make it easier for them to do their job. Just a glance at the Page Rank would give the crawler an idea if they need to inspect the inside of the site or not. However as of the latest that I’ve heard is that Google is not using the Page Rank anymore. That means the number that you see on the Page Rank of a site it not up to date and has no more value to your site.
So you mean there will be a time that PR0 sites won't get listed on the search engine?
I am on the fence about this. I think PR is worthless on my own websites yet I use it when I buy ads or blog reviews to determine if another site is good.
If you are selling links, PR is very valuable.
If you are selling links, PR is very valuable.
But having a low PR but still a related site can still boost your SERPs.
What if I used to have a link to this high quality PR site, but suddenly, it get spammed. How could this affect my site?
It's just one site, so probably that wouldn't really factor too heavily against you.
I read before that even a single link like that can affect the overall SEO of your site. How true is that?
I saw a video by Matt Cutts where he was saying Google is smarter than to fall for negative SEO done by your competitors where they spam backlink to you to mess up your search engine rankings.
I think pr is useful. The value pr5 must be more than pr0! Who can refute it?
I wonder how can they really tell if it's done by a competitor or by you, yourself. Any idea?
From what I understand, there is external PR which we see and internal which Google is constantly updating. Most people say that PR is not important... but it is. It is the quality of links you have to your site.
If you want to show that a website is rich enough from SEO point of view then yes PR is really important.
I don't think the page rank is now important in the SEO , now if you want to get links from a website you should check i'ts domain authority etc..
SEO isn’t about instant gratification. Results often take months to see, and this is especially true the smaller you are, and the newer you are to doing business online.
But how to build backlinks plz anyone give me suggestion ?. My clients are told me that plz your increase your backlinks .
PR is an abbreviation used for Page Rank it is a phenomenon used by Google to provide authority and relevancy to the sites as per the said and laid principles and criteria it is measured between n/a to 9 and the site with the highest authority and popularity is always having highest of the rank, PR doesn't have to do with ranking on SERP it is just a way to describe the popularity and relevancy and importance of a site on the web, lets take an example of Facebook you see the PR is 9 and you may know why is it the only site to get such a high PR because of its universal popularity and importance even in personal usage as well along with professional use. It is universally known and loved domain.
yeah Page Rank really is very important.
PR is still important but when looking for links relevancy counts much more
For backlink its important to get high PR backlinks.
But there is no such rule that low PR or PR0 cant come at 1st page.
yes in the sense PR is so important factor to establish your business empire at online.........as the PR high you will surely get more traffic and as a result you will get more business.
I guess that I have always felt that it was important. I think that your site is more successful when you have a higher page rank.
Page rank depends on your back link, the more quality back link you have the more page rank you can achieve.
Quality Off page work can help you to gain more page rank, therefore page rank is important.
PR is something that defines how good your website is. When we are about to buy links we always buy from well page ranked sites. Because those sites are trusted, frequently visited and really useful for peoples.
1. Google says do not worry about pageRank, let them.
2. pageRank is an algorithm that is used to determine placement in search
3. if you write good content, your site is linked to and ultimately PR goes up
4. do not just link your homepage
5. Note: a directory with a PR9 homepage may have only a PR of 0 or 1 on the actual page you link to.
6. Quirk has a search tool that can show you PR/Alexa/Moz/Compete and if a site is do-follow or not.
Thanks for reading,
yes it is the most important thing in seo..
Also keep in mind about DA (Domain Authority) & PA (Page Authority).
PR shows the status of a website. It represent its popularity. And if you want ads on you website definitely your web PR should be good.
If your concern is traffic from the search list, I’d say the page rank is very important because usually, the searchers will get to page 2 as the farthest. That means if your link does not land on the first page of the search list, your chances of getting stray visits is not really good. That’s why the SEO is now the in thing because of that page rank. The ultimate goal of websites is to be on Page 1 of the search engine list.
