Google PageRank Update
Rumours abound on the Internet that the Google PageRank score has been updated. Why this remains of interest to people is open to question…
Google has said that people worry about PageRank far too much, “we’ve been telling people for a long time that they shouldn’t focus on PageRank so much; many site owners seem to think it’s the most important metric for them to track, which is simply not true,” said Google’s Susan Moskwa at the time. “We removed it because we felt it was silly to tell people not to think about it, but then to show them the data, implying that they should look at it.”
Though for some reason, they kept it around in the Google Toolbar. Obviously, some users just like to see it.
Several Internet forum threads, including Digital Point and WebmasterWorld have indicated that Google has released an update to its PageRank webpage score as displayed in the Google Toolbar.
Google PageRank is one of many signals (over 200, according to Google) that the search engine uses to determine rankings. The algorithm gets tweaked on a daily basis, and Google has put more emphasis on others factors in recent times – most notably, good quality content.
