PR still matters  Reply with quote  

I often see see webmasters' questioning whether PR still matters or not in webmaster forums. I think that the answer is still big Yes. Reasons include the followings:

1. Positive PR indicates that your site is not penalized. This is like a vital sign.

1.2. Other webmasters often check this, and if PR is 0, then many webmasters stay away.

2. If you're advertising on your forum, in particular, advertising using text link ads, a lot of webmasters check this. If you have high PR, then you can command high advertising fees.

From what I have seen, PR is not a very good indication of your SERP anymore.

I have lost a lot of ground to lower PR sites in SERPs. I think one of the biggest new factors is the age of the website.

Pr does still matter. But not as much as it used to.

The recent volatility of the April and July updates has lessened credibility.

I think PR matters from a sales perspective - it's a partial indicater of effort.

My issue with PR is that it's not consistent: One sight might have 3k backlinks pointing to it and have a PR of 5, while another site will only have 5 backlinks pointing to it, but since one of those links is a PR of 7, the site will have a PR of 6.

One big problem with PR is that sites which are deindexed after the last PR update still shows PR

It's probably because the last Pr update PR snapshot is pretty old one.

Pagrank will probably become less valuable as Google tries to deter link buying and PR buying.

TrustRank of some description is most likely creeping into the algo all the time.

Has anyone checked out the page strength tool http://www.seomoz.org/tools/page-strength.php?

I think this is where things are going and that the quality of IBLs is going to become more and more important.

PR is not a huge contributing factor for when it comes to ranking your webiste with backlinks. Google is very clever now and it wants sites that have relevant and detailed information to link back to your own. I saw first page results for very competitive keywords from just collecting 5 - 20 links from newly created sites that were full of relevant information linking back to my own.

Hi,
Very informative conversations here.
I think PR still matters a lot, but if you are getting heavy traffic and placed well in SERP then PR is not so important.
Actually PR is one of the factor which may affect your SERP ranking and if it is doing well without PR then, its just fine.

Yes Page rank always account to the site popularity. All peoples and companies first check your page rank and then check your product features etc. You understand with my statement.

PR is just a numerical value given by Google to every website but i think this do not matter a lot, matter is the ranking in search engine that will increase your sales.
