Is there really a way to get a reliable, quantified value of Page Rank for a site?
I was thinking that Google won't tell you, and common sense tells me that PR varies for every combination of keywords. But I keep seeing people refer to a PR of 6, e.g.
I've been assuming that the only way to monitor PR is to have a list of keywords that you use to search and then just count the position of the site in the results.
My main site is problematic in that it contains over a million variations of one page and the keywords used by visitors are almost unique to each of those pages. (It takes GoogleBot 3 months of non-stop crawling to reindex my site.)
So maintaining a list of keywords for PR monitoring is dicey. They are grouped under a category of about 35,000 units, so I can search a representative handful of those categories, but those would be secondary search terms in the real world of my users.
I can't use the "most common keywords used" in reports, because those are just very unique keywords that some one individual keeps searching on day after day.
