PR3 and highly ranked?
PR3 and highly ranked?

 6:40 am on Nov 5, 2002 (gmt 0)

Hello All

We did have a page ranking of PR6 which then dropped to PR3. I was pretty irritated by this but by my surprise we have now achieved a number 2 spot on our most important keyword and are close to cracking the first page on our other top keyword.

So we have a PR3 yet are highly ranked in the search listings. What I need to find out is what Im doing right-unforuneately I am not sure what this is?!

With a low PR this is confusing me a bit--any light on the matter would be greatly appreciated (sorry for the long post)

Depends on many things. Including how competetive the keyword is.

But his keywords for that site is the same when he was PR6 and PR3. (I would think)

cyan_corp, I agree with you, it is confusing and no one can claim that they understand how a SE rank a page, what everyone know is the basic H1, title,...stuff, the rest of it is we can only guess at it and by the time we figuer something out they change it.

Congratulation on you high ranking.

It seems to me Google tweaked what is a high PR. They seemed to be giving away higher scores last index.

Well I think the whole PR thing is in a bit of muddle, one of my sites that has lost it's PR completely that was a PR6 is now ranking better than ever for quite a few keywords one is showing 163,000 results I'm at 3rd with zero PR! Yep I'm confused as well :)
