It has been a long-time debate whether a search engine results page is related in a website’s page rank. Some say that you do not need to have any high page rank to have your website appear on the first page of a search engine while some say otherwise. Though it is true that some websites without any page rank can potentially rank on the first page of a search results, it does not mean that you can neglect your site’s page rank.
Page rank or PR as most webmasters refer it to, is defined as the method a search engine evaluates a particular website. Search engines assess a website’s page rank through the quality of its content if it contains important and relevant information or if it has links connecting to reputable websites as well. These links serves as acknowledgement of the websites associated with it which is also a vital factor when a search engine does the math for a website’s page rank.
A website having a high page rank will definitely be ranked in the top ten search engine results page. However, even if a website does not have any page rank but its content has quality, then the search engines will still index it in its database and can potentially rank high in the first few page of a search engine results page. The main idea here is that by creating a website with good content and establishing links with reputable websites, it will help increase your website’s page rank. It will eventually increase traffic to your website in the long run. By having a high page rank, it will likely list your website on the first page of a search engine where most search engine users are directed to after they key in their keyword.
