Blonde question of the day......re PR pages

by jennyuk 9 replies
Ok - this may sound blonde - but can I ask the following.

Does a site with a PR rank of lets say 1 - does that mean that particular site will appear on page 1 of Googles SERPS.

So therefore, would a site with a PR ranking of 3, appear on page 3 of SERPS?

And is it sites that get a PR ranking - or pages?

Can you tell I'm slightly confounded, confused and convoluted... :confused::confused:

Thanks gorgeous warriors,

Jenn x

    Hi Jenn..

    PR goes from 0 - 10

    O being the lowest... it isn't related to the SERP page that a sites pages appear on...

    A site with a higher number PR like 6 or 7 will rank better in the SERPs than a page with PR 0 or 1 etc..

    Individual pages are classified with different PR depending on Googles view of their authority.. for example some of my main domains are very basic so they only get PR of 1,2 or 3.. but my blog sections are often higher because of the high content and value..

    Hope this helps a little

    Peace

    Jay

      That's not entirely true Jay,

      I outrank PR5, 6, 7 sites all the time with PR0, 1, 2, 3 pages.

      What really counts is whether your onpage and offpage is better than the other site.

        I stand corrected.... EzineArticles must be crapping themselves now..

        Peace

        p.s. I think it is fair to say that a higher PR site will outrank a lower PR site all things being equal...I didn't think we were doing a case study here...

    Jenn,
    No. That's not what PR is about. It's about the "authority" of the website.
    I believe it has a lot to do with how often Google's "bot" visits your site, which could help a lot with your SERP rankings, but it's not the same thing as the rankings.

    Any SEO expert could do a better job of explaining PR, it's not an easy subject to understand, but I hope this clears things up a little bit.

    Absolutely not. The PR value of a page can be between 1 to 10, 10 being the highest. It's essentially a quality score of your site. You get a separate one for each page, although each page will contribute towards your domains overall PR.

    Nobody really knows how exactly PR affects your rankings, however higher PR is always better. Essentially a higher PR score should generally get your ranked higher, but a PR0 site can always get more traffic than a PR 7 site for example.

    I think in the end you need to worry more about how much traffic, and how many sales your getting - rather than what your PR score is.

    There's more information on Wikipedia if you'd like it:

      Absolutely - PR on some of my sites recently dropped back, on others went up, for no apparent reason, the sites al had about the same increase in traffic, links, content etc

      However, as webmasters we often instinctively regard PR as important eg we like links from high PR sites...

    Are blog pages ranked differently from html pages? Also, do blog posts get individual page rank ratings?
