Is PageRank Still Important To You?
With Google just recently updated all indexed websites’ pagerank in June, I was more curious than ever to find out that all important question: Is your site’s pagerank that important to you?
A few years ago there was so much discussion on this love-hate topic among bloggers, Internet Marketers and even from the horses mouth – Google. There was even speculation that Google might even totally stop pageranking all sites to prevent people’s obsession with this little green bar from getting worse. It didn’t happen and personally I don’t think it ever will.
Google came out very strongly then and reminded all concerned parties that page rank, was just one of many factors that Google used to determine search engine ranking. Google now called it their 200 signals that their search engine ranking algorithms rely on. I believe this completely as I can see it for myself too. I’ve seen so many of my websites with Google PR0 beating the likes of many other websites with higher page rank simply because of other factors like exact domain keyword. I believed that page rank influences about 20 percent of your search engine ranking.
What Do I Think of Page Rank?
I definitely prefer to see page rank remain because it is a good measurement and acknowledgement by Google of how well perceived my sites are. I also rely on the PR of sites to access a site quickly for all my daily work like backlink building, or when trying to search for credible information.
I also rely on sites PR for my keyword research work.
