What is Google PageRank?

The PageRank system is a set of algorithms employed by Google to determine the web popularity of each of the pages it adds to its index. In its search for objectivity, the PageRank system employs a complex and secret equation with hundreds of millions of variables, the results of which are expressed with a numeric value on a scale of 1 to 10, and this indicator that is automatically reassigned each day. This data is fundamental when determining the position of a page in the results ranking for a Google query.

To calculate this position, Google assesses, amongst other data, the quality and quantity of incoming links; those from pages with a high PR will be most valued, whilst those tagged with a noFollow attribute are automatically rejected.
