    For the mathematically inclined, check out this link:

    It's a pretty cool tool that allows you to visually see how PR gets shifted as you add/remove web pages and links.

    One interesting insight is that backlinking to a tier 1 will boost your PR. Do people agree w/ this?

    PageRank is, in fact, very simple . But when a simple calculation is applied hundreds (or billions) of times over the results can seem complicated.

    PageRank is also only part of the story about what results get displayed high up in a Google listing. For example there's some evidence to suggest that Google also pays attention to the text in a link's anchor when deciding the relevance of a target page ? perhaps more so than the page's PR?
