Link Glossary: PageRank

Posted on Mar 19, 2008 in Affiliate Marketing |

Page Rank:

  • A method developed and patented by Stanford University and Larry Page (co-founder of Google) to rank search engine results. PageRank gives a unique ranking to every page on the internet. The ranking is based on the number and quality of inbound links pointing to a page.

Part of my goal here is to share what I’m learning while stumbling through my career with others, hence a new glossary series on link related terms. This is a brief explanation of PageRank, but Google offers more thorough information here.

PageRank tip… usually a website has to have a PageRank of at least 4 to be relevant to SEO results.
