    PR is only one of the factors that influence ranking. All other things being equal than the higher the PR, the higher the placement in the SERPs. However, if PR is high and everything else is shitty (on-page SEO, shitty backlinks, shitty content) then it's very possible for low-PR sites to outrank high-PR ones.

    If PR is the only factor then Google, and Facebook would dominate all search result. because they are PR 10.

    @OP : No matter what the PR , if the content relevency is more acc to Googles algorithm it will rank higher.

    page rank matters only for link selling lol.It does not have any impact on the search results as the releveancy and the page content matters most.

    PR doesnt matter,
    Content matters,
    You can easily outrank wiki if you have a good on page seo along with a decent backlink and good content.

    Hi, like everyone said Pagerank only matters if you are going to sell links in your site or if you are going to sell your site on Flippa or similar. Quality and relevant content, good onpage seo and diversified linking structure is all that matters in ranking high on the serps.

    Thanks guys, I'm learning a lot.

    "PR only matters when you sell links" - does that mean that PR doesn't matter and the people who buy links based on PR are fools?

    BTW I found an even better example:

    #1 some lame site. PR1
    #2 wikipedia. PR5

    Google search rank is not measured by pagerank.Pagerank is help for SERP but there are also so many factor for result.
