What is a good page rank?


Recommended Posts

Hi Friends,

PageRank (PR) is a calculation, famously invented by Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, which evaluates the quality and quantity of links to a webpage to determine a relative score of that page’s importance and authority on a 0 to 10 scale.

The handful of PageRank 10 domains, including Welcome to nginx!, Twitter. It's what's happening. and Adobe Reader Download, have the highest volume of inbound links of any sites on the web.

The top sites set the bar, so to speak, and the 10-point scale plummets exponentially down from there.

PageRank 5 websites have a good number of inbound links, PR 3 and PR 4 sites have a fair amount, and brand new websites without any inbound links pointing to them start at PageRank 0.

The Google PageRank is a system first developed at Stanford University as a doctoral research project by Larry Page (thus the name “PageRank”), who later co-founded Google Inc. Mr. Page’s doctoral research was based on an exploration on the mathematical properties of the linking system of the World Wide Web. He developed and defined a method that counted and qualified every link on the web, giving each link a vote.  Having links from more popular websites carry more weight than less popular sites.
