Publicly SeenPage Rank Is A Waste Of Time
Google only has itself to blame for ever letting page rank be public. It should be ditched from being queryable/viewable by users, even via the toolbar. Less time focused on PR by webmasters and more time focused on producing quality content, instead of the obsession they've bred in Today's webmasters, would really help with Google's almost spam[in]dex at times, albeit not as bad as live.com. (Just take a look around forums.digitalpoint.com to see what I mean... so-called webmasters too busy buying/selling links to work on content.) Good, interesting content is what brings a lot of traffic and returning traffic.
