    After reading a few articles about a PageRank and then an article from Wikipedia, it seems that both of them are completely different. A lot of people and even some people who sell SEO services told me that PageRank gives your website trust, ranking and basically everything else.

    To be honest I would rather trust Wikipedia and after just reading the whole post it comes my assumption that PageRank = Quality of Your Backlinks Combines in a ratio of -1 to 10 and that PageRank is just a simplified number rather than your total average link quality multiplied by your total links.

    So basically I know think that PageRank equals to your total backlinks and that they are just the same thing, just as 2/10 equals 0,2.
    But of course PR/Backlinks isn't the only ranking factor.

    So is this information correct or not?

    It probably has its fair amount of importance in ranking, however I wouldn't call it a big factor, but rather an overall score of the big factors.

    I dont think the PR of your page matters for ranking. But the PR of the pages that are linking to your site matter alot. So get high PR links to your site, which over time should raise the PR of your site anyways.

    I have found PR to have no bearing whats so ever, I have a PR 0 which kicks ass

    Choose a random term and search it, then check the PR of the first few hits, by your logic it should always be a high PR site,

    Pagerank in General :

    Google utilizes the Page Rank system in order to determine the importance of a web page. The weight of each page is determined by the number of "votes" or links to a certain page and then is recursively calculated utilizing the eigenvectors.

    What is it Exactly?

    It's just a bunch of numbers.

    It is a bunch of numbers used to identify the value of your backlinks because it is purely calculated by your backlinks value and a little bit of other ranking factors.

    Page Rank is calculated by backlinks, it doesn't have to always be a high PR website, PR doesn't rank you, PR is an overall score of your ranking as someone previously said and I believe that to be true, by your logic you believe PR doesn't have a value, if PR does not have a value neither do any of your backlinks have one. Google made PR so users could find out the value of the website, basically when someone links to you you really don't know if it's a good page or not without PR, PR makes all the calculation pre-made, without PR there wouldn't really be even a way to calculate the value of your backlinks because the formula for PR is pretty changed and closed.

    PR is an overall score of your ranking factors, and if you have a high PR then that means you will rank much more better than a website with a lower PR, but of course there are a of factors, one of them is relevancy and accuracy in which a website with PR 9 ranking for "x z y" keyword will also rank for "y x z" keyword, but another page with a PR of 3 ranking for "x z y" keyword will always outrank the PR9.

    So again we are on semantics in that, you have also said that pr does not relate to rankings. The page in page rank is Larry page not the webpage. It is an old fashioned method of trying to calculate authority. But with no f o l l o w you can get a direct link from a PR 9 and it will not change your pr and so page rank has not evolved beyond Larry pages original formula, to include follow, penguin ducks and octopuses.

    And so does not indicate anything it originally was designed to do.

    I said that PR does not affect rankings because PR is out of the box, PR is the overall measure of your website, let's just say that PR calculation and your ranking calculation are pretty much the same when your getting compared to other website and I believe you didn't quite read that point well, if you need to understand the point of this thread then you have to read the source first and that is Wiki.
    As I said PR is a calculation of your overall website's SEO, it does not affect your rankings anyhow at all because it does not interact with them.
    PR is the end point of the calculation system, it is not involved in it, factor1 + factor2 + factor3 = PR, ranking = factor1 + factor2 + factor3 ? 2factor1 + 2factor2 + 2factor3

    PR really isn't nearly as relevant as it used to be.

    At this point, your PR really only matters if an advertising network requires you to have at least a PR of 2 or 3. This is usually their way of verifying that you've been around long enough to be ranked and that you haven't been penalized yet.

    Otherwise, you can pretty much ignore PR these days.

    How can PR be weak if it is the fucking algorithm that ranks you in Google, I can say you that anyone who thinks PR is weak or any shit of that does a WEAK SEO and that's why PR algorithm won't rank him for shit.
