    There are so many methods to increase Google PR , most of them being the ones that violate Google TOS. In this scenario does PR matter to you?

    I would rather have a site with zero PR but a fair amount of visitors rather than one with a PR rating and no visitors.

    Ranking is the most important for me, even though you have PR5 but you have no visitor, your site cannot generate income steadily

    I don't care about PR at all. I care about SERP rankings but ultimately what I want is traffic.
    Some of my best traffic generators are no follow links.

    PR is very helpful when we talk about getting ranking well fast, much people don't care about PR but in fact if you're not SEO much PR worth there

    PR rates the quality of the site. Try to check the backlinks of any PR page. The PR helps SERP ranking for the keywords you target.

    Only matters to me if I'm buying or selling a site. However, it is the lowest factor I consider.

    Google is trying to move away from the PR system anyway. It prefers to motivate work on content quality by discouraging content farming as a means of boosting a site's reputation. A visible, high rank can inflate the value of a site, and provides useful feedback for paid SEOs that add no value to the system.

    Google PR is not important as Google rankings for me. I make all the efforts for Google rankings. For which I try to build quality back links. And quality back links also help in PR increase. So, with quality back links you get high Google rankings + PR
