Google PageRank or PR for short seems to be misunderstood by so many webmasters and SEO specialists that in this part of the SEO tutorial I will try to explain the ins and outs of PageRank without getting too deep into the technical maths behind the PageRank algorithm. Let’s hope so anyway, not easy to explain PR without dealing with some Maths! Over the years I’ve wrote several SEO articles on PageRank including: Google PageRank and Page Rank which describes the difference between PR and Page Rank (some webmasters get confused) and PageRank Explained which covers a general overview of […]

I’m new to the SEO game but it seems to me if we had a good estimate of the “Base” we could perform very accurate analyses.

The formula is simple:

let:

b= the base

N= total number of pages on the internet

Then:

b**10=N

check as estimate with N=1 billion ie. N=10**9

Then b=antilog (9/10) ~= 7.9 which is very close to your estimate of 8.

I know this may be an oversimplification but might be useful if we knew the total number of pages on the internet. So that’s the next question in my mind.

Just a thought,

PageRank Algorithm

HomePage PageRankI not only agree that PageRank is important in the Google algorithm, I believe that HomePage PageRank is the top factor. The second factor is a boost that Google gives to the effective PageRank of a HomePage when the HomePage is competing for a keyword.

Website Rank and Google PageRank?Sir, I have no more idea about pagerank,.. I want to know , if I create a backlink on page like example1.com/page1/(PR0).., But example1.com has PR5, then I’ll get benefit or not..?

I have near about 30 dofollow sites (From PR-1 to PR 9), But I am confused, and not creating backlinks for my site.

If I create a backlink on a page (where individual page’s rank is 0), but website’s page rank is 8, Then….what will happen..? and, i’ll get benefit of PR8 or PR0..?

Please reply as soon as possible.

Thank You Sir

Website Rank and Google PageRank?

SEO Toolbar PRThough I don’t understand how SEO toolbars can tell me that a site has X or Y page rank, I think there are some guidelines that help us figure it out.

The amount of links and the anchor text used, the niche, etc. can all impact the quality of an inbound link. Thanks for sharing.

PageRank CalculatorThanks so much for taking the trouble to explain the maths behind PR.

while I think (myself included) most webmasters understand the principles, it can get very difficult to calculate the resultant set of link benefit from one backlink.

It’s also important to note that reciprocal links gain more points when within similar niches or industries than two reciprocal links that are completely unrelated.

PR9 BackLinksHi SEO Dave

I’m impressed by your math skills.

Do you have a formula for working out how many PR1 backlinks equals a single PR9 link?

Cheers

Peter
