    The Page Rank of a page depends from the links that point to that page. Their count, their Page Rank and the link count on the page that links to you. The more links pointing to a page, and the bigger PR of the pages linking to you - the bigger is your PR.
    Not every page has PR, so actualy PR0 is not the lowest possible. NO PR at all is the lowest. You can be indexed and not have PR at all.
    The bigger PR, the harder it gets to get it. Look this image:

    It means you have more incoming links as site.com instead of www.site.com. The fix is to decide which way (with or without the "www" you want your site linked to. Then contact those site linking incorrectly (assuming there aren't hundreds since you have a PR of 1) and ask them to update the link.

    Absolutely true information about the Page Rank factor of the websites over the search engine. Specially Google.com

    It's hard to pin down exactly what Google means when it talks about PageRank, but the best definition is that its a rough indication of the popularity of a Web page. A higher PageRank indicates a more popular page.

    Notice here that I'm not talking about Web sites here too: Google considers every page of a Web site to be an autonomous entity, one thing that quite frequently confuses people. We've all been taught to think about Web sites, but the new, modern Web is all about separate autonomous pages, not sites at all.

    Let's jump back to PageRank for a moment, though. Google PageRank is a measure of the relative popularity of a site, ranging from a rank of zero (you have insufficient inbound links or are too new to have a rank) to a rank of ten (which means you're one of the dozen top sites on the entire network).



    But PageRank isn't just an indication of how many Web pages point to your page, it's an indication of how important those sites that point to your page are too. This is the piece of the Google algorithm that make its search engine so darn interesting: if a small number of highly popular (e.g., high PageRank) pages point to your page, you could be considered more important than if hundreds of less important Web sites have links to you.

    As a result, everyone who pays attention to PageRank dreams of showing up on the Google home page. That'd be a glorious day for your PageRank!

    So now that we've talked about how PageRank is calculated, let's spend some time talking about why you should - or, perhaps, shouldn't - care about its value.

    First off, let's set aside a common misunderstanding: a higher PageRank does not mean you'll have better Search Engine Results Placement (or SERP, as search engine geeks call it). Or, at least, it's only one of what's likely over 100 different variables fed into the calculation of what Web pages should be shown in what order as the result of a specific Web search query.

    You can see that if you've installed the Google Toolbar, actually. Perform a search for something relatively uncommon, then check the PageRank value of the top 10-15 results. You'll see that the top match or two are often not the highest PageRank pages on that list of the top dozen.

    In the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) community, a lot of people pay a lot of attention to PageRank, and seek links to their pages (and sites overall) from other sites with relatively high PageRank. Other SEO people, however, encourage all of us to just simply ignore PageRank entirely and instead focus on building good Web sites.

    What's my view? Well, as I wrote at length in my popular book Growing Your Business with Google, I think it's useful to pay attention to your Google PageRank, but the best long-term Web strategy is to build a smart site that offers your online community or marketplace valuable content presented in a readable and credible manner.

    PR10 is not just for search engines, it is merely the highest ranking, any site can attain it. Search engines just tend to get high ranking by their structure and number of sites that link in.

    Also, PR isn't just number of links in, there are many factors that are addressed; both on-site and off-site factors are part of this algorithm. Another thing to consider is that pagerank is calculated instantly, but google only shows your pagerank as of about 3mo prior.

    Hello.........

    Page rank is a measurement of how important a page is and affects search rankings. This is an index that values Web pages on a scale of 0 to 10, based largely on link popularity.

    Page Rank, in short PR, is actually a measurement that that tells the weight of a page. It is ranked from 0 to 10. If your PR tool is gray then it is a sign that your web page has not even 0PR, if it is white, it means it has PR0,
    PR 10 and 9 sites are a few and you can count them on finger.

    PR 10 is Search Engine? Face book has PR 10, So is FB a search engine? PR 10 does not mean search engine.

    Page Rank is a rough estimation of what Google thinks about the quality of the backlinks coming to a page. A high page rank normally means that the links coming to the page are from sites which Google trusts and respects (with high PR themselves). PR is very liquid, however when you look at the displayed page rank you're really only seeing a 'snap shot' from some time ago. Google does not show us Page Rank in real time as this would allow people to quickly start testing in order to discover better how to manipulate it. In all honesty you shouldn't focus too much upon PR, something called Trust Rank is far more important to Google, it's authority and relevance they care about.

    PR stands for Page rank. Google rates your site with page rank as PR0 means low indexed site and as the PR increases it means that site is more popular. You can do SEO of your site to increase the page rank.

    Surely PR depends on popularity but not physically. Popularity means "Popular in Google's watch". Google sees a site by its Quality Content, Quality BackLinks and Traffic + bounce rate on sites.
