Google Page Rank Update

Posted by Dan Draney on November 3, 2005

It’s a monthly ritual that most of us never notice. Google updates their “page rank” for web sites at the beginning of each month. This month we made the page rank leap from PR4 to PR5, joining Ryne, Steve and other friends. We see that Grizzly Mama and Sea Witch have now made the same jump, and we think it was also in this update.

What does page rank mean? See our previous “SEO for Dummies” post for details. In short, page rank is one factor used by Google in determining the order hits are listed in for a particular query. It ranges from 0 to 10, and is probably a log scale (i.e. PR6 is much higher than PR5).

In principle higher page rank should translate to more hits from Google and from other search engines that use Google. We’ve noticed more search engine hits in general over the past month or so, and Google hits were relatively high today and yesterday, FWIW.
