Some bloggers are fascinated by it and new bloggers probably aren’t even familiar with it, but regardless whichever side your on Google Page Rank is an important factor when it comes to how other bloggers and even investors view your blog. It’s getting pretty late so I won’t be spending a lot of time going into what Google PR is and how you can increase your Google page rank, there are plenty of places that have Google PageRank Explained to get you up to speed.
Finding the Google PageRank Checker tool that is perfect for you really shouldn’t be too hard, as you can see by this Bing search results for Page Rank Checker there are plenty of tools out there to find out how your Page Rank rates.
I wanted to give you an example of two different Page Rank Checkers that I use when I am writing a post that requires me to check a blog or websites Google Page Rank, at one time I had a Firefox add-on that would display the current websites Google Page Rank in the bottom right of my Firefox browser but that went away with the most recent Firefox update.
Extreme John.com Page Rank is currently PR 4
The two Google Page Rank services I use are Smart Page Rank and PR Checker, both offer PageRank badges that you can display on your website in various sizes, Smart Page Rank takes checking your Google PR to another level with additional information about your blog.
Smart Page Rank Checker displays
- Alexa ranking
- Directories listed DMOZ and Yahoo
- Backlinks from Google, Yahoo, MSN, AltaVista and more
- Indexed pages
Smart Page Rank also includes a website value tool that displays the estimated value of the url you enter, this is of course based on various factors and a very general estimation of a websites value.
To give you an example of what PR Checker.info looks like you can check out my recent post titled “Blogroll Updated with Hot Blogs“, I used one of the three different Page Rang badges offered for each of the sites in that post.
Now let’s talk about this, do any of you care about Google Page Rank or did you have no idea what Google Page Rank was? Have you ever used a PR Checker tool before to see what your PR rating is?
