PageRank 4 and what it means


"OMG, your PageRank is 4 now!" my friend P shrieked at me excitedly and she was not amused when I told her I didn't know what she was talking about. Page rank? What's that got to do with me? Apparently I've been totally remiss in my duties because PageRank is a huge deal for bloggers as it is one of the factors that determines a website's ranking in Google search results.

from webworkshop.net:
PageRank is a numeric value that represents how important a page is on the web. Google figures that when one page links to another page, it is effectively casting a vote for the other page. The more votes that are cast for a page, the more important the page must be. Also, the importance of the page that is casting the vote determines how important the vote itself is. Google calculates a page's importance from the votes cast for it. How important each vote is is taken into account when a page's PageRank is calculated. 
Okay, whatever. So being bumped from a PageRank 3 to a 4 (according to this site it means this blog has many good inbound links)  is good news? I don't know exactly how that happened but I'm grateful to whoever linked me and for P's assistance because she was the one who badgered me into blogging, found this layout and got this blog listed on directories and such.

I admit it dear readers, I don't know anything about the technical side of blogging--I just write and click "publish post"--that's about it. P found the widgets and everything. I'm still surprised actually that a lot of people are finding this blog via the search engines. I'm especially grateful that I've found great friends who have linked this blog and regularly leave comments on my posts, even the silliest ones. Thanks so much guys! :)
