Why Page Rank is Important?

How Search Engines Work?

Let’s have a look how Search Engines work. Suppose a random guy searched a term “Latest trend in Technology” in Google. There are millions of pages indexed in Google. Now Google bots search for term “Latest Trend in Technology” and will collect all those pages which have the term in any manner. Now bots will search for the KeyWords and take out the pages. After KeyWords, Google bots will check Description and a list of pages will be gathered which match best for the user. This all done in milliseconds. Now Google still have hundreds of webpages which they have to rank for the searcher. Criteria to rank the web pages is based on various factors but the major differentiator is Page Rank. Suppose two webpages are doing same level of performance and even the SEO performance is quite similar then Page Rank will matter here.
Well Google is going to introduce Author Rank which will be based on your social activities and popularity. Author Rank will help your web page to rank over other webpages but it will work only when you have verified authorship in Google.
Don’t worry Author rank is not going to replace the Page Rank. Page Rank will forever remain major criteria for the audience and internet marketers for the evaluation of web page.

    I knew all this before, but still enjoyed reading through your article. As you mentioned the PR is very important when it comes to credibility, and that is the challenge with a new webpage, also with guest posts. Accepting a guest post from an author of a webpage with a current PR of 0 is not to attractive.
