First Google Toolbar PageRank Update Of 2011
Google has updated the PageRank values within the Google Toolbar. This is the first toolbar PageRank update of 2011, and the first since August 2010. There have been continuously minor updates during 2010.
At the same time Toolbar PageRank is out of date and does not have a direct impact on a site’s ranking.
But the Toolbar PageRank is often an indicator of how Google values a website.
Some time in 2011 Google's PageRank patent will become non-exclusive and then in 2017 the patent will expire completely.The PageRank algorithm Google uses today is completely different from what it was back when it was first designed.
EworksWSI expects that the importance of Pagerank will further decrease in SEO (Search Engine Optimization) over the next years.
