  • Not really a dupe, this is asking how to check ALL pages of a web site, not just one. Commented Jul 22, 2010 at 16:58

    @Dennis - I think this is different enough to fly as unique.

I honestly wouldn't bother doing it all. The publicly available toolbar PageRank is only one of 200+ factors Google uses and it doesn't necessarily reflect where your page will appear on the search results pages. It's not updated very frequently either (every few months), while the actual search results are updated daily. At best, it's a not very useful barometer of how Google views your site.

Beyond just basic SEO best practices, you're far better off focusing on improving your website's usability, content, and actual conversions once people get to it than by wasting time checking PageRank constantly. It's important to remember the purpose of your website's existence. If it's to make you money, focus on improving that, not on improving PageRank. PageRank doesn't directly make you money. If you're concerned about getting more traffic, use social media or advertising. PageRank doesn't directly bring you more traffic.

At the end of the day, PageRank probably can be improved and manipulated, but if that's your primary focus, what is the point? Your only reward for hours or days of work is a bigger green bar.

Focus on what matters, PageRank will take care of itself.

All that said, this might be what you're looking for if you want to waste your time.

Edit in response to DisgruntledGoat's comment:

Agreed. The publicly available PageRank isn't the same as the internal ranking. I'm not sure why Google even keeps it available. The internal PageRank is what actually ranks the pages, but the only way to check that is to see where your site is on the actual search results page. Checking the results themselves every once in a while isn't completely useless, but it fluctuates from day to day or even hour to hour, so you can easily drive yourself crazy doing that too frequently.

In my opinion, it's far more useful, time-efficient, and cost-effective to focus on on-site SEO, marketing, advertising. After all that, however, if your page doesn't get your visitors to do what you want them to do, what the page was designed for, all the other effort was time and money wasted.

    To be fair, PR is one of, if not the most important factor that Google uses in ranking. However, I completely agree that the public-facing "score out of 10" is pretty useless. (Google likely has a completely different PR scheme used internally that measures more accurately.) Commented Jul 22, 2010 at 17:06
  • @DisgruntledGoat - I agree. Commented Jul 22, 2010 at 17:14
  • If people who paid to put links on certain pages had even a minute degree of common sense, I would not worry about PR either :) Still, its nice to have an overview.

    It used to be available on the WebMaster tools, but I think this post on Google's Webmaster Help sums it up: sites.google.com/site/webmasterhelpforum/en/… : "In fact, don't bother thinking about it. We only update the PageRank displayed in Google Toolbar a few times a year; this is our respectful hint for you to worry less about PageRank" Commented Jul 23, 2010 at 2:22

In regards to is pr still a important i think that although it may not be as important as part of the ranking algorithm i think that as a webmaster its still a really good starting point when looking at a pages authoirity as some of the signals that will give a page good PR will also be the same signals that search engines are still looking for.
