Google Page Rank 1, 2, 3 What Does it Mean?
Have you ever wondered what each page rank number 1, 2, 3 stands for and what type of scale we are talking about? I do. I am curious on what scale my site is in terms of relevancy on the internet world. And if I am insignificant, I would still like to know by how much and what it is all about for myself.
My search began with the Google Page Rank. One of the most common conclusion I gathered is that “no one knows for sure”, but for what it is worth, everyone agrees that the scale is from 1 to 10, and that a page rank zero, or no page rank means you are not listed.
To get an idea of what the Google page rank is for your website, or any website you are wondering about, download the Google toolbar. Then in the middle of the toolbar is a tiny little rectangle that you can hover over to get the pagerank for that particular website.
Now that you know your page rank, I bet you want to know what that 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 stands for, don’t you? Below is a chart I put together on each number.
Some of what I have read regarding how the contents on these websites are rated made sense and others don’t. I guess that is why most articles end up saying it is Google’s own recipe and ingredients. If you follow some of the reasoning it doesn't match up with every website, so just do your best and hope that you are providing content that people care to know about.
Ranks and what they mean in simple terms:
0] You're not even listed on Google PageRank list.
1] Very poor, but hey - at least you are listed.
2] Poor, but you have potential to move up and it can be done.
3] Average. You have good information and most websites fall in this ball park.
4] Above average. You're sprinting away from the majority.
5] Good. Page Rank 5 will usually pop up on the first page of some searches.
6] Great. You've worked hard and have great information.
7] You're hot and you're one of the top sites. Your peer is Zillow.
8] You’re super hot, and your peers are CNBC, EBay, Bing, American Idol.
9] Everyone wants you, you are like: Youtube, Yahoo, Facebook, Apple, Amazon.
10] Finally, the 10s: Google, CNN, usa.gov, and social bookmarking website AddThis.
