    What does this mean guys, are ranked 10 or what, is it helpful to your article

    Very few sites have a PR of 10.

    If you were to have a webpage hit 7 or 8 you'd be doing remarkably well. It would be an outstanding achievement.

    If you want to know more I think Wikipedia would be a good place to start.

      @ DS so you mean this pages are ranked 10 not 0(zero), just getting started with how ranking works, so to say the pages are pretty doing well.

      @BristolBoy: Thanks for this clarification too.

        It's as Dame Scribe says.

        Something brand new will be PR0.

        I have seen maybe 5 or 6 sites with PR10. is one such site. should be. was, probably still is.

        At the end of the day, if you don't understand PageRank, then you probably don't need to know anything about it. And those that do, well a lot of them make a big deal out of nothing about it. I'd see a lot of commotion about it on the Digital Point forums. People will sell links from their high PageRank sites. But don't get too excited about that, the only people buying are those wanting a high PR of their own so they can sell links from their pages.

        Far more important than PageRank is Search Engine placement. Ranking highly for a (useful, not a useless) keyword in a Search Engine will bring you traffic. PageRank, unless you're competing with these other fools trying to sell a link for five bucks, isn't going to give you a meaningful stream of income.

        I had a site that was PR7 and it was getting 5,000 unique visitors a day. For some reason (it could have been 1 reason or a combination of a few that happened around that time) I dropped off Google's first page of results for that keyword. I had been sitting around 2nd and 3rd spot. Visitors dropped to about 1,000, That's 20% of what I got before. Adsense money dropped to a lot less than 20% of what I had before.

        At a glance you might expect the numbers to have shifted the same, but the Search Engine traffic visitors were more inclined to click on the ads. This is why you'll hear knowledgeable people keep banging the 'search engine traffic is quality' drum.

        My PR7 did nothing for me. It didn't give me any money it didn't influence my position on the search engine rankings. This was sometime in 2005 that this happened. Actually, my PR may have even been an 8. But as you can see, I cared that little that it didn't matter much to me at all.

        All I can suggest is read up at Wikipedia how it works, and what it's about. Take with a grain of salt anything you read about it in forums because most of it is speculation at best and inflated baseless opinion at worst. With the occasional person trying to sell you a back link. And after all that, don't lose any sleep over what PageRank your sites and pages are, because traffic is far more valuable.

          Not sure if this is right theoretically, but practically brand new don't have any PR in my experience, even PR0. And it takes some minimal effort to get to PR0. smile

    Just to back up what Darkside says, and only have a PR of 9.  I am unable to check as it automatically redirects me to (the most popular website in the UK with a PR of 7). 

    For the record the Hubpages homepage has a PR of 6.

    In my experience, I've seen the google toolbar showing 'no page rank info available' even before it can say PR0 for any new page.

    PR is important for some surfers who like seeing the green bar big_smile Other than that, position is SE listing seems to be of more practical significance.
    And it's not that difficult to get PR3 to please everyone's eyes.
