What is PageRank Values?

No one can know what Google PageRank values, I have done a little research and below is the secret how many external links of a PageRank values, are required to get a certain Google PageRank.

Example, if you want to know how many incoming PR5 links that are required to achieve a PR5 for your blog, you simply look down the Page rank 5 column, until you come to the PR5 row and the answer is 18.5 links.

So you need 18.5 PR5 links to achieve a PageRank 5 for your blog? This is not really true.

For certain case, if all of the incoming links are from PR5 pages with less than 50 external links and the links are on-focus with your content, but the value of the PR5 link is reduced if there are more than 50 links on the page and the page topic is not on focus with your blog. Below table will work as a guideline for you to have a goal to aim for your blog.

PageRank Table

Moving one step further, we are often asked what a PR4 link is worth, or a PR5 link is worth compared to a PR3 link, for example, so to try and make this easy to understand, we have listed the PR3 equivalents below.

So, as you can see above, a PR6 link is comparative in value, to 125 PR3 links, so it seems fairly obvious that your time is better spent in trying to achieve a few quality links rather than bundles of lesser quality links. We have used the example of PR3 links, there is an assumption in the industry that if a link does not appear on a page of at least PR3, it is not worth having.

From my study, it is worth considering a link from a blog or website of PageRank Two or above, as long as it is:

1. On focus with your topic,product or service
2. The website's or blogs index page has a PR of 4 or above
3. There are less than 50 links on the page
4. There are no undesirable external links on the page
5. There are no nofollow tags on the links
6. There is no robots metatag on the page with the content," noindex, nofollow"
7. There is no javascript redirect on the link

Every website or blog owner should be running an ongoing link campaign, either themselves or through a search engine optimisation professional. Look to add the equivalent of 40 PR3s to your site each month, preferably made up of higher PageRank links, i.e. 19 x PR4s or 6 PR 5 and 15 PR3s. Don't go crazy and try and bring in hundreds of links in one month, don't over do it, keep the progression as natural as possible (untrackable).

Dont have anyone from outside Google knows exactly how PageRank works or what relevance is put on each PageRank value, together with my own experience of the effects of PageRank. The figures on the tables are rounded up and I not guarantee of the accuracy of the figures. Just a make sense method that I have go through so far. :)
