Matt Cutt svarar på på en del frågor om PageRank med anledning av den senaste uppdateringen av Toolbar PR.
Svaret på denna fråga är intressant – Lots of folks ask questions like: “Is this PageRank from day X or day Y? And it looks like backlinks are from day Z?”
Really, I wouldn’t worry about it–I’m not even sure myself. At some point we take our internal PageRanks, put them on a 0-10 scale, and export them so that they’re visible to Google Toolbar users. If you’re splitting hairs about the exact date that backlinks were taken from, you’re probably suffering from “B.O.” (backlink obsession) and should stop and go do something else for a bit until the backlink obsession passes. I highly recommend keyword analysis, looking at server logs to figure out new content to add, thinking of new hooks to make your site attract more word-of-mouth buzz, pondering how to improve conversion once visitors land on your site, etc.
