    Why do we so worry about "the PR number",

    I was always wondered why we need google PR?

    PR is really so important?

    PR is important to get traffic from SEO.. When we reach PR5 and above google bots will crawl our site everyday its means they always know our latest post

    No.. the correct equation is...
    Good Content -------> Pagerank + Traffic

    and Pagerank alone don't get you any traffic from Search Engines if your content is low quality and too small.

    I heard from a friend that Google stopped giving importance to pagerank.
    Now there is no importance for page rank. important is the alexa traffic rank. there are pr0 sites having good traffic.

    If your site has an awesome pr,
    you probably would get a better serp and sitelinks, and then it will bring more traffic from google search.

    High PR doesnt always mean high traffic or high serps. There is lot that depends on different algo's and TrustRank.

    Google frequently says that PR is only of the 200 parameters that they use for SERPs.

    There are mixed views on this. My view is that PR is important but not exclusively so. The other reason for building backlinks is that your site is more likely to get visitors from people clicking on your links and that you are likely to boost SERP's rankings thus bringing more traffic. PR is just one element.

    PR can be an indicator to show the link popularity of a website has. It somehow represents the authority of the site too.

    PR will tell you how much Google Bot loves your site. Higher the PR them more times Google Bot will visit your site.

    We do NOT need "toolbar PR", what we need is "Actual PR" to rank well in the SERPs.

    You need PR as an incentive for established sites to do business with you.

    Hi,

    A good way of getting more backlinks which in turn will get you higher pagerank is by using a tool i found 4 months back.

    What this tool does is finds all the related sites which have high pagerank with your keywords so you can post a comment with your website link in the message. It does what it says basically, post around 5-10 blogs,forums, etc each day on a few specific keyworks for about a month or so you will see an increase in backlinks and over time pagerank, but google is taking its time with pagerank so don't worry about pagerank it will come.

    How to improve PageRank

    PR is just something for webmasters to wank off over. It doesn't really relate to traffic or revenue.

    Most of my websites are PR0 and PR1, I have a couple of PR2's. But I make thousands a month and jerk off over the coin in my bank, not my PR.

    PR for me is not really important.

    I choose Ranking over PR. :)
