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!

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 been any PR updates this year or last year so I had to raise the question; is PR...

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 has purchased page ranking from Google, etc. I have not heard of...

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 lot of work to move to a new hub.But then to make the issues more confusing and...
