Pagerank has never been implemented in serps
I think it's pretty clear that PageRank was the basis of Google's initial success, and was the fundamental factor that made it a better search engine than the competition at the time.
Pagerank no longer determines weight of outbound links.
Are you referring to the original calculation? I don't think anyone would believe that Google use the same calculation of link weighting they did in 1999.
How is it that you've been using PageRank that it now needs to be cast aside in anger? Are you saying that Google does not use weight that is about the 'quality' of citations, and that this weight isn't based on a series of calculations?
