For years now, we have all stressed or rejoiced everytime there's a PR update. And it's been a great gauge of relevant sites over the years, but I wonder, what was the real benefit to google by releasing PageRank to the world? Are they really better off? They were holding all of the cards, yet they decide to show part of their hand. And we all know the can of worms they opened with that decision. Google has always guarded their secrets like it's fort knox and they have always prided themselve with keeping webmasters (and the competition) guessing on their algo. Do you think google regrets their decision to release PageRank?
