About Google PageRank
PageRank, or PR, is an algorithm used by Google Search to rank web pages in their search engine results.
Named after Larry Page, one of the founders of Google, PageRank is a way of measuring the importance of website pages.
It works by counting the number and quality of links to a page to determine a rough estimate of a website's importance.
The underlying assumption is that important websites are likely to receive more links from other websites.
In case you think a website's rank isn't that important, let me assure you that it is; otherwise, Google would not have updated the PageRank patent recently.
Why is it important? Because it's one of the factors a search engine like Google takes into account when it decides which results to show at the top of its search engine listings rather than buried in the middle.
