Google PageRank Update

By Daniel Scocco

Google is updating the PageRank scores as you read this. What is PageRank? According to Google:

PageRank relies on the uniquely democratic nature of the web by using its vast link structure as an indicator of an individual page’s value. In essence, Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B. But, Google looks at considerably more than the sheer volume of votes, or links a page receives; for example, it also analyzes the page that casts the vote. Votes cast by pages that are themselves “important” weigh more heavily and help to make other pages “important.” Using these and other factors, Google provides its views on pages’ relative importance.

Notice that in reality what is being updated is the toolbar score, which is the value that you see through the Google toolbar when visiting websites. The โ€œinternalโ€ Pagerank, the one used for ranking websites on the search results, is actually constantly updated. You can read more about this topic on a very detailed article from Search Engine Land titled โ€œWhat is Google PageRank? A Guide for Searchers and Webmasters.โ€

By the way if you want to check what Pagerank your website will receive you can use the Live Pagerank online tool, it looks like Daily Blog Tips will become a PR 5.

    Congrats… Looks like my new blog will be a 4! Stoked since it is barely 3 months old.

  • Brian

    I went from 0 to 4. Looks like I learned something from you after all. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Not that the public change really matters for SE traffic since Google says they use an internal pagerange that’s updated daily.

    But now maybe TLA will take me.

    Congrats on the PR5. Does PR have any meaning anymore? Just asking.

  • Daniel

    Rick, usually advertisers take that into consideration when thinking about rates.

    Some SEO’s might be interested in buying links on your site just for the PR (i.e. TLA also works that way).

  • Friends Network

    Some stage is inconspicuously revolutionary. This severe record doused that top online poker rooms directory vicariously. One land has some polite window. This inc product cut some arm agreeably. Slim question is this subsequent member. This girl is flagrantly territorial.
