Is Page Rank Really Important?

Are you concerned about your Page Rank? Or do you really know what it is?

People that have been blogging for some time, or are familiar with the way websites work and Google works will have heard the term Page Rank at least once in their lifetime. In more recent times Page Rank has really become a golden currency around the web – the higher your Page Rank, the better your chances are of swapping links with someone, earning revenue from advertising, getting traffic through your site or blog.

This article that I picked up this morning looks a little at the two sides of the coin that is Google Page Rank – and if you still don’t know what it is all about then its worth a quick read with your morning cup of tea.

    Well its become a “golden currency” as such… but do YOU think its important? Would it have any impact on your own blogging?

    Most people cant see the wood for the trees unfortunately. They measure their own site by it’s PR.

    The one and only thing that matters when considering Google is RANKING.

    higher PR != good SERP rank

    If you concentrate on getting good rankings there is a very good chance that high PR will follow (create good content and people will naturally link to you).

    OldWelshGuy is a regular over on DP whose posts are always worth a read.

    For anyone who is PR dependent they can see their live PR through Sitemaps 😉
