    It's always kind of confused me. Like people build up a page rank for their domain name. But then if they make new posts, and don't have any links to it, does that mean it's just like any other website out there? Or is there some sort of combination of having backlinks to your new post as well as a high PR on your domain (which would have occurred from previous posts and links)?

    Page rank differs from one page to another. You homepage may have different page rank while your inner page may have different page rank. When people are talking about pagerank they are talking about the page rank of the main page ..

    Thank you for the clarification mindlesswizard! Is it usually a lot better to have your homepage have a high PR? So then it can share the link juice throughout the site with the nav links and links to all the posts, etc?

    I never really understood that about people who sell links from PR5 domains for example. So it's not necessarily a domain I'm assuming. It's just a URL somewheres on that domain that's ranked up, and then linked to the customers I'm guessing.

    Home Page:
    The PR of main page and inner page will always be differ. The person will always ask to post the content on the main home page only to get good link juice from your website.

    Things depends on many factors. Yes you can have the homepage with high PR and then allow link juice to flow from the homepage to its inner pages. But do some search on google about that. Depends on your site structure as well ... i.e linking structure between pages.

    Home Page:
    They are different, but if your site is well layed out and inter linked, then pagerank does filter down to sub pages - so if your homepage is pr5, your first level sub pages are likely to have pagerank of between 1-3.

    so the homepage pagerank does add value to all other pages on some level.
    homepage pagerank does also give some indication as to the quality / popularity of a website (in theory).

    having said all that, I know that people are gradually giving less and less thought to pagerank, and I think this year it will become even less important.

    i think now its more about domain and page authority .

    i think the reason people are giving less thought to pagerank is because the updates have become so infrequent - if that changes, the masses will be citing it again.

    The principles of PR flow are still valid though, and equally applicable to PA and DA though so it's still worth bearing in mind as a simplified model.
