Google has just danced its dance!
Yep, in the last week, I have noticed that some sites have a revised PageRank. I'm not sure what it is called though - most of these have names, like 'Big Daddy'.
How do I know about the PageRank update? Well, we keep a weekly record of our PageRank, so we were please to see some of our efforts show through a better PageRank.
But while we are reasonably happy, I see others are wondering what hit them (or rather what didn't)! See: http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=824694&page=3. Mostly, I suspect that webmasters will make positive noises.
But what's the big deal anyway? What difference does it make to you? If PageRank was all that mattered, then every result of a search would result in a page 1 full 'PR 10's.
So, what good is Google's PageRank then?
- It gives you an indication of how well your backlinking is
- The biggest difference it can make to you is to give you bargainning power
What ever your PageRank, remember to try to get good links - for 'good links ' read 'the more relevant links the better'.
Roll on another quarter. And another Google PageRank Update.
