Google PageRank Explained and Uncovered | March 31, 2004
Google Page Rank is a very interesting thing. On the surface, it’s quite easy to understand. The Page Rank (or PR) of a site is related to the PR of all the sites pointing to it. Each page pointing to your site gives you a little bit of PR. Thus, the more sites you have pointing to you, the higher your PR will be. Sites with higher PR’s have more PR to give, so it’s beneficial if you are linked to by sites with a high PR.
However, scratch the surface and things get much more involved. There are quite a few articles about PageRank. However, here are a couple of the better ones.
