Google Page Rank Is Dead - Part III

Google Page Rank Is Dead - Part III By: Martin Lemieux

HELP! My PR page rank is grey, callrepparttar development doctor. Asrepparttar 140310 world of Google is turning a mile a minute these days, some really big changes are happening. This weekend, marketers all aroundrepparttar 140311 world don't believe what they are seeing... Google's Page Ranking system is dead.

Is it really dead?

In an online forum post from WebProWorld.com (A discussion on Google), people from all over are speculating about what is going on. In fact, one member was quick to point out thatrepparttar 140312 last big shift Google had, we sawrepparttar 140313 PR system go down as well. This begsrepparttar 140314 question...

Are we onrepparttar 140315 verge of a BIG PR shift? or, Are we seeing a Google marketing scheme just to shake people up?

In many ways, Google needs to be improved upon their "broken down PR system". There are so many areas if they payed attention to forums and blogs all aroundrepparttar 140316 world, they would have more than enough feedback about their PR system to fix this growing PR issue.

Page ranking is a potentially a great system. It CAN be a great system if it directly ranks websites properly by content, relevance, and not simply byrepparttar 140317 number of links pointing to an individual website.

These days, you see a website with 15 "medium relevant" links pointing to it while its front page holds a PR of 7-8 out of 10. How do you justify that?

What will it mean if Google's PR systems stays down?

I believe it will mean a big shift to online marketing. Many newbies out there that are barely legal when it comes to SEO have an opportunity to measure everything they do. In turn,repparttar 140318 newbies may even sound professional to their clients. Take away these tools and you are left with true marketing gurus that have stoodrepparttar 140319 test of time and can deliver results for themselves and their clients.
