revised My google Page Rank is 1 but a very famous site has a PR of 4, is that rank correct?
Tidied up the grammar and question a little bit to make it slightly clearer without fixing the underlying confusion.

comment Overuse of <h1> was bad, but now, with HTML5?
Very similar, if not identical to SEO regarding using multiple H1 tag?

comment Where to store users consent (EU cookie law)
I'd happily give +1 for the cookie option, but I can't give +1 for the IP option - as @Mark points out, consumer ISP will reuse IP's for different connections, so if I refuse, but my neighbour accepts, and later our IPs switch and you start storing cookies I'd not be happy. Equally, companies often have multiple users behind a single firewall all sharing an external IP address. This needs to be a per-user setting - at the machine level...

comment Google Analytics setting cookies on static content despite being on entirely separate domain
I'm seeing a "Grade A on Use cookie-free domains" - it's only listing the TypeKit files as as being served from a domain with cookies - try deleting all your cookies from the site and trying again, see if any more are set?

comment Why do we have to pay for a domain name?
Also, unless you go into random ports and make things even more suspicious, only have one "site" responding on one IP address - domain names (or more accurately) Host Headers allow administrators host multiple sites on a single address (much like having different companies operating out of a single office block to take your analogy further).

comment Can google crawl an URL (say some static HTML file) that has no pointing link?
+1 for adding the note about authentication/authorisation. The only real way to guarantee search engines won't be able to reach these pages is to have them in a secure area in such a way that even requesting the path directly triggers the authentication.

comment Should I always use HTML5 Microdata for SEO?
@Howdy_McGee the 3rd point "Why microdata? Why not [...] microformats?" states: "Historically, we’ve supported three different standards for structured data markup: microdata, microformats, and RDFa. [...] we’ve decided to focus on just one format for schema.org. [...] There are arguments to be made for preferring any of the existing standards, but we’ve found that microdata strikes a balance between the extensibility of RDFa and the simplicity of microformats, so this is the format that we’ve gone with." So they are not supporting microformats.
