This is a topic that has been way over used. Don't worry about page rank it will come if you are doing everything correctly in the TOS of the search engines and not spamming.
Get quality content find relevant link partners and you will do ok.
Yahoo is essentially losing the market share. Thus to shoot for a high Yahoo page rank isn't nearly as critical as a high Google page rank.
As matryx stated, people tend to put way too much emphasis on page rank.
Page rank is a nice way to show prospective buyers or business partners that your site is well established and respected by Google, but websites can rank fine without having a high page rank or even any page rank at all.
It is important to remember that the Toolbar Page Rank, which is what you see in your Google Toolbar, is not your actual page rank. Google only updates Toolbar Page Rank every few months, but they are constantly updating your actual Page Rank. This is one of the reasons why it is important to not get too hung up on PR.
BTW, sorry to respond to a 5 month old thread, but it showed up in one of my Hubs and peaked my interest.
Every sites owners want good page rank of their site because it helps in making the site image and reputation in the market. We see toolbar page rank which is not actual google updates the site's page rank on daily basis. We see updated page rank after 3 months.
Don't run about Page Rank depends on your quality outbound links and some useful and unique content on site.
Page Rank is google trademark. Page Rank has been patented by Google in 2005 from Stanford university by giving 1.8 million shares of google in exchange of this deal
high pagerank doesn't matter because for me, people first then Google or Yahoo. If your site got PR4 it's enough than ever.
Does Yahoo have a Page Rank? Google assigns a Page Rank to your website which can be seen on its toolbar. I have never heard of Yahoo assigning a Page Rank yet.
I agree with the fact that having quality content is the most important thing, as word of mouth is EXTREMELY important, but page rank does indeed matter. It is said that roughly 70% of people online use google, 12% use yahoo, 3% use bing, and the last 15% is a mix between ask, Alta Vista, and hundreds of other search engines.
Granted these are all rough estimates from a few months back, but the point remains that if your page is ranked 1st on google and 1st on yahoo when using the same keword or phrase, you will get more hits with google.
Google ranking most important. I check my website positions and analyze my competitors in popular search engines, on http://rankinity.com. I can also select the desired search engine Google me or Alexa
