Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Forum Moderators: open
Adobe, Apple, Google, Macromedia, Nasa, Yahoo
and most probably; Amazon (how do you check amazon.com PR when it redirects?)
Found about 25 universities (.edu's) but Cambridge and Yale missed the boat with PR 8 (Oxford the only non-US I found).
News; CNN, CSmonitor, Discovery, Nature, NYtimes, Newscientist, Usatoday, Washingtonpost, Wired and BBC (the only non-US I found)
Search engine/directory Altavista, Dmoz Directhit, Exite, Geocities, Lycos, Msn, Netscape
(Alltheweb About, Overture, NL all PR8 and Looksmart PR7)
Software/downloads Apache, Cnet, Digits, Freebsd, Freefind, GNU, Opensource, PHP, Real, Redhat, W3, Winzip, Zdnet. (MP3 only PR8).
Computers Cisco, Compaq, Dell, HP, IBM, Sun
Nokia.com, XE.com, Brittanica.com were the only non -.gov -.org -.edu, non software/computer, non news, - non search engine/directory sites I found with a PR of 9.
No car makers, no music, no culture, no travel, no food, no humor that I could find with a PR9.
Would be interested in the input of others, certainly for other commercial PR9 sites not falling in the top mentioned categories.
Anyone around here with a PR of 9?
This quite simply is the best news site on the web.
Nothing comes close.
Oh, and btw: Could it be that you forgot Microsoft? ;)
Tedster I guess that is a good way of checking redirected pagerank.
You need this [searchnerd.com] though to estimate it as mentioned and posted by Chris_R in this [webmasterworld.com] thread.
I would have guessed Amazon to have a minimum of pagerank 10 with all their affiliated inward links.
Looks like I'm bored, doesn't it? ;)
signio (aka verisign. Who said mirror sites can't rank high?)
w3c (now THAT's a surprise... ;))
www.cast.org/bobby/ (but NOT the homepage)
Ok, enough for today.
The Page Rank algo, at its origin, was a PAGE algo, and not a site algo. We may be seeing the resonance of that simple fact, even though Google certainly seems to include domain factors in it's current incarnation.
Was just browsing around Amazon and checking the toolbar. The Bestsellers page only had a PR1, but searching for Harry Potter brought up a page with PR4!
The homepage for any category seems to be PR0. I thought this was probably because it is personalized content, so I dumped my cookies -- still PR0. Guess Amazon operates on a business model that doesn't include SEO :)
too much internal interlinking and self-congratulary Amazon praise on the Amazon site.
I am taught here that Googlebot's PR calculator does not like that. Look for the Amazon webmaster hanging around here soon with a PR0 penalty question!

Some more government PR9 sites
Some more PR9 news sites:
elpais.es/ (finally a spanish one!)
salon.com/ (thanks Bird)
And this is the unusual one!
Only 1600 backward links (double count?)reported in Google and 3098 in Alltheweb.
The average Google backward links for a PR9 site is ca. 15.000 to 115.000 (doublecount?)
I think Google has donated Pagerank to a good cause...
dropped from PR10 to PR9.
So far the PR 9 sites i saw that got demoted to PR8 are:
Ox.ac.uk (oxford university)
The PR9 universities I listed here. [webmasterworld.com]
salon.com seems to be greyed out..
It looks like the exclusive are getting more exclusive.
Apple.com - from 90.100 to 87.000
Adobe.com - from 116.000 to 112.000
Yahoo.com - from 1.020.000 to 960.000
Nasa.gov - from 87.000 to 82.900
Macromedia.com - from 44.600 to 44.200
Google.com - from 354.000 to 443.000
'Sites with a PR10, PR9....etc.'
No mention of searches being performed to produce rankings.
Do web sites have an 'inherent page rank' based on certain criteria?
