Did You Care About Google Page Rank?
I was told and read that Google page rank was very important since it was a mark of approval by Google and kind of a mark of trust and mark of any website’s importance. So I cared very much about my Google page rank. The best page rank I ever achieved was 4, which I thought at the time to be a great achievement. For no apparent reason in time it turned into 3 and eventually into 2.
The first time it went down it was devastating to me. I never figured out the reasons for it. At that time I was posting regularly and I had a significant number of engaged readers. When it went down to Google page rank 2 I kind of stopped caring about it that much but it still was on my mind. No matter what the secret algorithm and the way to arrive to the page rank Google used it was always changing and it never made much sense. When Google got rid of the page rank altogether it kind of confirmed what some people were saying for quite some time and what I began to suspect: Google page rank never made any sense, it was never a true reflection of the importance and trustworthiness of any website and therefore it should have never been created or abolished long time ago.
Good riddance then.
