Google Frequently Asked Questionswww.OrganicSEOSEM.comFAQ: What is Google PageRank ? Terry H., El Dorado Hills, CA A: Google PageRank is a ranking system used in determining the relevance of a web page. The best explanation can be found in Google’s Technology section as follows: “PageRank Technology: PageRank performs an objective measurement of the importance of web pages by solving an equation of more than 500 million variables and 2 billion terms. Instead of counting direct links, PageRank interprets a link from Page A to Page B as a vote for Page B by Page A. PageRank then assesses a page's importance by the number of votes it receives. FAQ: When was Google started ? Louis L., Chicago, IL A: Google was put into operation in 1998. FAQ: Why does there seem to be so many PageRank zeros and ones, but so few eights, nines or tens ? Ralph F., Livonia, MI A: Nobody outside Google itself is privy to the exact machinations of the PageRank algorithm. But it is suspected that PageRank is determined not as a linear function, but rather on a logarithmic scale. To further complicate a layman’s understanding, it is likely on a nondecimal base system. So for instance, if the scale were on base 9, a PageRank 5 would be approximately 81 times more difficult to achieve than a PageRank 3. Keep in mind, that while PageRank is stated as whole numbers from zero through ten – it may represent rounded figures  decimal values are likely. Thus, a PageRank Ten would be rarer than a PageRank nine, and so forth. FAQ: What does Google think about popup advertising ? Rex L., Palm Beach Shores, FL A: Google does not allow popup ads on their site. As they put it – “we find them annoying”.
