I think Susan is just telling us what to measure, and I think she’s clear: stop thinking on Pagerank as a success metric, and move yourself to CTR, bounce rate, etc. crystal clear, you have to measure your business in terms of visits, conversions and ROI.
In the other hand we know this is nothing to do with the Google algo. PR was one of the basics at Google ’98 paper and we suppose its still playing an important part on the ranking algo.
I’m SEO for thousands websites and we have billions pages. Of course PR is not the metric to measure the business, and we are not able to track every page Pagerank, but still I’m pretty sure that for competitive keywords you`ll have to get PR (among other things) to start driving traffic to your site, and then you’ll be able to measure what Susan told us…
