One of my pages has a MOZ rank of 4 according to website grader. Unfortunately I don't know what a MOZ rank is, so I don't know what to think of that.
It is very likely that the option to view PageRank will be removed from the Google toolbar some time in the future, a couple of systems have already emerged as contenders to replace it, one is mozrank and the other is AC rank. I prefer AC which has been developed by Majestic SEO who offer backlink analysis tools that are light years ahead of anything SEOmoz has to offer.
Hey Jean - I work over at SEOmoz, so I figured I'd give you a heads up on mozRank and how it functions.
Google calculates PageRank using an algorithm that's well published and well known. At SEOmoz, we use a similar algorithm (not the original one from 1998 exactly, but one we think is likely close to what they're doing today). We process our ~50 billion page index and run this calculation to provide an estimate of a page's raw importance on the link graph.
Google's toolbar PageRank updates once every 2-9 months, but we find that just after it's been refreshed (when the data is generally best and there's relatively few "0"s on newer pages), mozRank is off of TBPR by around 0.45. If we were perfectly correlated, we'd expect to be off about 0.25 (since we show up to two decimal places vs. just a single digit).
It's certainly not a perfect substitute, but it is fresher and more frequently updated (at least once per month) and provides a sense for how roughly important a page is on the web. Hope that helps!

I recently created a new hub about PageRank and after I published it I remembered that it should be PageRank instead of the Page Rank that I used in my URL. I really felt like crying as it is a long hub and would be a...

This is actually three questions.1) Is the average of all of the individual HubScores significant in any way? Does that number affect or change anything?2) In discussions of the Suggested Links Tool and HubKarma,...

Alright, this is a very basic question (yes, I know it is, but.....) I thought I understood this but the other night, someone told me that indexing has no affect on page ranking. He went as far as to say that he...

When evaluating the competition of keywords, I always check the PageRank of the first four results to see the competition. I avoid keywords that have pages with PR 4-5 since they are impossible to beat. There haven't...

I guess I don't like this because it has happened to me with my analysis of the Tea Party. But this hub is great, and is ranked at the top of Hubpages, yet it gets a big fat zero from Pagerank. <link snipped, no...

Just wondering, does it take time even for a site that contains good keywords (high epc & search history) to rank high on a Google search? I know how important these things are to getting traffic, but I'm...
