Page Rank Updates, Matt Explains A Few Things

No one supposedly cares about Page Rank anymore, but I bet everyone checked theirs 🙂 Up = good. Bad = who cares about Page Rank (until next time)?

Matt Cutts answers a few questions.

Not much is new in there, apart from this clarification about continuous Page Rank calculations (on the back-end), which I don’t recall seeing published before:

I believe that I’ve said before that PageRank is computed continuously; there are machines that take inputs to the PageRank algorithm at Google and compute the resulting PageRanks. So at any given time, a url in Google’s system has up-to-date PageRank as a result of running the computation with the inputs to the algorithm. From time-to-time, that internal PageRank value is exported so that it’s visible to Google Toolbar users (see the question below for more details on the timing)

    Nice tips from Matt there but many of us do care about their PR.
