PageRank - This is one of the most common items that a website displays especially with blogs. Many people are crazy about this because it shows how great their site is. Do you know why PageRank is popular among bloggers and other website owners? Before I tell you what PageRank is let me give you a very long explaination.

PageRank is a link analysis algorithm used by the Google Internet search engine that assigns a numerical weighting to each element of a hyperlinked set of documents, such as the World Wide Web, with the purpose of "measuring" its relative importance within the set. The Google Toolbar's PageRank feature displays a visited page's PageRank as a whole number between 0 and 10. The most popular websites have a PageRank of 10. The least have a PageRank of 0.-http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PageRank

In my own understanding, PageRank is what Google uses to determine the web page's importance, relevance and POPULARITY. It is one of the many factors used to ascertain which web pages appear when using Google Search. I believe it is not the only factor Google uses but I also believe that it has the biggest weight of all factors. It matters (especially to bloggers and website owners who blog for money as the main reason) because it is one of the factors that determine a page's rank in the search results. For example, if your website or web page is on the FIRST PAGE on the Google Search result, it means that your website or web page has 100% visibility to the user. There is a very great percentage that users will visit your site. Visitors equals traffic. The more traffic or visitors on your site, the more chances that these visitors will click your ads or join your affiliate programs.

Search engines like Google crawl and index web pages. Don't misunderstood web pages and websites. What I am trying to say here is that PageRank may vary from page to page within a website or blog. Your article about animals may have a PageRank of 4/10 but your article about HOT and SEXY women may have a PageRank of 10/10.

Examples of web pages are:
Examples of websites are:
In simple terms or a simple analogy would be: the Internet is a Tree, a Website is a Trunk and a Web Page is a Leaf.


How to view a website or webpages PageRank?

There are 2 ways to do these: Google Toolbar and PageRank checking sites.

How to install Google Toolbar with PageRank?
Click here. This is NOT A SCAM.hehe And also note that installing Google Toolbar may vary with different browsers. But I am pretty sure you can install it easily, anyways its just an add-on or plug-in.

Which sites checks PageRank?
I am not sure if they return the same result as Google's PageRank Toolbar simply because they are NOT Google. Except if they use Google API (if its open and shared).

As of now, I am not really a big fan about PageRank. Maybe because my sites are still very young. I blog simply because I enjoy doing it (and also because I earn money from it, but just a little ^_^). Furthermore, I blog because I want to share what my experiences, ideas, thoughts and opinions.

I hope you enjoyed reading. ^_^
