    I do believe that pagerank matters, but I am not taking it serious. There's a bit of a difference there. I won't lower the quality of my community for page rank. But is a good feeling to know that others are linking to you and that Google noticed.

    It's good that so many people believe that PR still matters. That way the professionals have an easier time.
    You guys might want to read a few more reputable SEO blogs.

    Hi
    PR is surely important for your site's worth but make sure not to get it through fake methods. Especially you should avoid black hat seo otherwise google can harm you not only through PR but also through search engine ranking which will ultimately become biggest problem in the form of traffic loss!

    Dean,

    I only give my own opinion, I have a general understanding of PR and Google, I must do as my site is listed in position 3 from 1.7 billion pages.

    In regards to Googles T.O.S did you visit their Enterprise Solution page?

    Selling links is against Google's TOS, which goes against everything you have just said.

    To say PR is useless, is wrong.

    If you sell links, PR is crucial.
    Exchanging links is much easier if a site has a high PR

    PR also gives a guide on how good or bad a link building campaign is going. If a person submitted to lots of paid directories they may have found their PR shooting up to around PR5 last year, however since Googles policy change regarding paid links for PR, rankings will have dropped.

    When embarking on a link building strategy it is always wise to not put your eggs in one basket, use various methods to build links, it is not hard, it just takes time and Patience.

    I personally wonder why Google has taken a stance on paid links, when their own Enterprise Solution page uses a paid link system. If accepted a company gets a listing for $10,000. I guess they now consider themselves that big they can do as they please.

    It would be nice if people substantiated what they wrote on forums, especially in regards to SEO, it was cause less problems.

    And if all that results in better web sites for site visitors, and better search engine listings, so the users get better results searching for keywords. I don't mind.

    More fool them then, Google will undoubtedly refine their changes and those people may then have to change again. It's only common sense to wait for the dust to settle before totting up what's what. It seems to me that a lot of people simply don't understand what they are doing, that is not Google's fault.

    PR is stupid. It's just Google's way of having control over webmasters. Just look at all the uproar over the latest update. Some people have completely changed the way they manage their site because of it. That's all it is.

    There are millions of misguided articles about that tell you to do this, do that to increase your pagerank and search engine presence. Quite simply put: use semantic markup, and write good content. If you do that you're presence will increase naturally

    Mine went from 4 to 1.. and then I realized my SEO program wasn't working and that google was re-indexing the default urls. So I fixed it and hopefully my PR shoots up again. it would be nice to break my record and get a PR of 5.

    I sold of some link spaces on my forum and it dropped from 4 to 3. I'll be careful not to do that now.

    Just a few months ago, on September 1st I started http://wetalk.tv/ and I just checked, we went from PR0 to PR4. It at least made me feel I was doing something right with the site.

    I went from 5 or 4 to 2 but I don't care. The Page Rank isn't that important.

    Just checked it and it's gone from 0 back to 2 which it was last time I checked.

    What annoys me is this other website which is about pit bikes like mine, has little or NO content unlike my website with over 2,000 members yet i only get a measly two and they have 4?
