The Drive for Domination Continues

The Drive for Domination Continues

Ok so I'm being a bit dramatic with my title. :D Having said that Google has given Nepacrossroads.com a PR5 ranking which is pretty significant. Not sure exactly when it changed but it was recent. (Edit: Update was apparently on December 30th.) Hopefully it stays there as it's not absolute and can go down.

http://www.google.com/corporate/tech.html

PageRank Technology: PageRank reflects our view of the importance of web pages by considering more than 500 million variables and 2 billion terms. Pages that we believe are important pages receive a higher PageRank and are more likely to appear at the top of the search results.

PageRank also considers the importance of each page that casts a vote, as votes from some pages are considered to have greater value, thus giving the linked page greater value. We have always taken a pragmatic approach to help improve search quality and create useful products, and our technology uses the collective intelligence of the web to determine a page's importance.


It's a like a cascading effect. So internal pages will benefit from this too. Pages linked from the home page will also be given more weight and on down the line .

Generally speaking a new website might get a PR1 or PR2 after some time, a PR10 is the pinnacle and there is only a handful of pages in the world that get that distinction like google.com or usa.gov. When I say handful that is exactly what I mean, there might only be 20 of them at the very most. Each successive rank becomes harder to achieve, getting from a PR1 to a PR5 as has been done here although no little achievement wouldn't be like going from PR5 to PR9. A PR9 would be like apple.com so even achieving that would be impossible for most sites ;)

Only Google would know the exact measurement used but each rank increase is significantly harder to achieve. The PR values would actually equate to something like this.

PR1 = 1
PR2 = 10
PR3 = 100
PR4 = 1000
PR5 = 10000
PR6 = 100000

Onto PR6.... 8-)

This forum is extremely easy to navigate as well, thanks Richard for all your hard work.

Where is the list of the 500 million variables? :D

I could show you but then I'd have to kill you. Actually many people would like to know and more specifically what each one is weighted. I could list a few...
