In recent years 15, PageRank was for many owners or administrators of websites, a benchmark for classification of web pages and to estimate their importance.
Alogoritmul which were classified and was given the score of a website, relied mainly on "backlinks"- A link / quote from a site better classified - and the quality / uniqueness content. PageRankit was absolutely wrong to see a tool SEOAnd many were swept away by the PR, saying that a higher PR, and a guarantee greater number of visitors on the website. False. From experience, I say that I had web pages with PageRank 2 that far outweighed a PageRank 6 web page. The algorithm used by Google was as clear as possible. A link on a page A with PR6, to a B page with a lower rank, increased in time the PR of page B. Of course, the number of links and the number of pages linking to page B count very much. It was an algorithm that gave birth to many "on-line" businesses and a "link market" all over the place. Google was not too excited about the links bought by website owners, and 2010 already had the first penalties. Finally, one at a time, PageRank was a real madness and source of revenue for many large PageRank webmasters. A link on such a webpage could cost from a few dollars up to several hundred. Links were exchanged, bought, sold, "studies" made to try to fool Google's algorithms, specialty forums on PR discussions.
In recent years, silence has been left, and many have been wondering when will be the next PageRank update. Regular Google PR update at least once or twice a year for several years it has stagnated.
After a few days, Google has withdrawn from all major classification PageRank for web pages, but this does not mean that they do not take a classification. Secret, but it exists.
For web site owners, the best "indicator" to find out where a web page is located is Google Console. former Google Webmasters. In Google Console find details and reports about the number of backlinks, positioning in the search engine after certain keywords, keywords (keywords) that lead to web reports on the rate of indexation, health / safety site, errors, plus other useful information for SEO (Search Engine Optimization).
As alternatives to Google PageRankAre almost certain to develop or by third companies or individuals, a number of tool sites, but they can not provide data than some suspected.
