Once Google used to display PR for PageRank, zero to ten of the sites means shows the popularity of the sites. When a site gets rank zero, it means indistinct or confused popularity. But when a site or page deserves rank 10, means highly visible page.

But now PageRank means sites presence on the SERP (Search Engine Result Page). Such as 1st SERP means, the page that users find first while they search using search term or key term or keywords.

What is SERP

PageRank vs SERP Rank

According to experts, the PR is only one of the two hundred factors that function to the SERP rank.   Although SEO considers Google PR of a site enough to measure the link juice to use the popular link in the optimization process, its target goes with the organic SERP rank for a  website.

What Is The Importance of PageRank

PR is one of the important factors to reward page popularity according to Google. Although it is not a promising factor that page to be obtained rankings in Google, it affects the site’s position in the SERP indirectly due to the PR of the pages linking to the site. To improve a page’s authority links with higher PR site are most important subject to link-relevancy.

A link from an irrelevant high PR site will never add fuel to raise a site’s position on the result page. A penalty is being pursued to ban the site if links are used from a site inorganic artificial way.  So, relevant and natural higher PR backlinks deserve enough importance. Because lower PageRank sites always seek relevant higher PR site’s link to increase their ranking that influence a sites rank to top of the  SERP following a target keyword. Then PR plays a very important role indirectly.
