Domain Rank vs Page Rank

What is the main difference in these two?

In regards to backlinks, if you have a wordpress.com blog (high domain rank) that links back to a page on your site, do you get any link juice from the wordpress.com domain rank?

Or, does the new blog (page) automatically have a high (page?) rank because it is within the highly ranked domain?

    As you submit your blog or blog comment with wordpress and if people like information of blog then you will definitely get the link juice from it and if your information is quality and searched by many people then you will get higher rank. And the it is not so that if you have blog on high domain then you will get high PR.

    If the question is about the wordpress domain. No, having
    a wordpress domain like blahblah.wordpress.domain passes
    none of the high PR of wordpress "domain."

    But domains don't have PR. Websites do. The website located
    at wordpress.com has PR.

    If you personally have a blog that has high PR, and you link
    to another site, it may pass PR. Google is under no obligation
    to do anything. People forget that. Google could care less about
    a lot of junk pages that exist all over the net. But it's the PR
    of the page, not the PR of the "domain" that passes PR.

    There is no such thing as PR of a domain.

    I am assuming by "rank" you mean PageRank.

    If you have a blog that has PR5, and a post has PR n/a, then
    no PR is passed for any link in that post. At least at the present.

    Try not to think in terms of domains but instead in terms of "pages" typically the homepage has the most PR, however any page on the net that has a number of authority links pointing at it will likely have some page rank.

    Link juice depends on link back page if a site have pr5 and your site is linked to a inner page of this site that having page rank 1 and 10 OBL then you site get 1/10 link juice from that site or we can say from that page.High doman rank means site is useful but inner pages pr show the usefulness of individual page.
    In simple we can say page(person) belog to good site(family) but his/her importance depends on its own .

    There's no such thing as "domain rank". That's the difference. Google ranks pages, not domains.

    Thanks everyone. In scrapebox, what is the difference between domain page rank (this is just really page rank right?) and url page rank?

    Domain page rank is the page rank of the home domain. URL page rank is the page rank of the specific URLs you scraped.

    http://www.somefreakingdomainhere.ne...ost-title-here


    Domain page rank is going to tell you what the page rank of http://www.somefreakingdomainhere.net is.

    URL page rank will the page rank of http://www.somefreakingdomainhere.ne...ost-title-here
