Is that true about PageRank?

0 votes
I didn't realise that about PageRank.

Are you saying that no sites have been updated since February?

If that is the case why is PageRank so important?

I am intrigued.

It's important cause it rates how trusted a site is and how easy it will be to rank for any keyword and rank other sites using links from it. New sites might be assigned PR but no older sites will have their PR updated  till the next update.

You are correct that no sites have been updated since February. When you ask why is it so important, it's relative to who?

  • To your visitors because it gives them some assurance that the site is somewhat reliable
  • To you because you want to set a good impression for your visitors. You also want to have a site that is considered worth buying or linking to or from whatever your objective is.
  • It is important to Google because they want to maintain their image of giving value to their customers.

I personally believe that pagerank is overated. If a site has authority because those who matter link to it, it will rank well anyway so branding becomes more important. I think most in the IM world, including Google realize that PR can be faked and engineered. That's why Google keep bringing out all the farm animals to prevent that sort of thing.

PageRank is only important if you are concerned about SEO. A high pr website may not necessary rank well, but it can definitely pass great link juice to websites it is linking to, helping other websites to rank better.

If you are using mainly paid traffic, pagerank should not be a concern at all.

Yes it's true, the toolbar hasn't been updated for around 8 or 9 months now. Matt Cutts also said that it's unlikely to be updated again any time soon. It seems Google are trying to wind down the page rank system, it's been pretty pointless as any sort of indicator for quite a while now anyway.
