What is Google Pagerank?

PageRank is Google’s system for ranking web pages by their relevance to internet users who may need them.

PageRank is the importance Google assigns to a page based on an automatic calculation that factors in the link structure of the web and several other variables.

For instance,a page with a higher PageRank is seen as more important, and is more likely to be listed above a page with a lower PageRank,with similar information, in a Google.com search.

Google's description of PageRank is given below:

PageRank relies on the uniquely democratic nature of the web by using its vast link structure as an indicator of an individual page’s value. In essence, Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B.

But, Google looks at more than the sheer volume of votes, or links a page receives; it also analyzes the page that casts the vote. Votes cast by pages that are themselves “important” weigh more heavily and help to make other pages “important.”

In other words, Google conducts “elections” in which each web page casts votes for web pages with hyperlinks to those pages. But unlike a democracy a page can have more than one vote and links from pages with high PageRank are given more weight (according to their ranking) and thus help to improve the targets’ PageRank.

This is the the PageRank meter as would be seen in the Google Toolbar. The more green the higher the PageRank.

Compare the relative PageRank of your site with other related sites by viewing the green bar to the left of a website in the web page section (near the bottom of the page) of the Google Directory page.

You can also view the Pagerank of your website and all others directly on your browser by downloading the google toolbar for:
