Google is Finally Removed PageRank

Google has dropped PageRank data from its webmaster tools due to statistical imbalance.

Google uses PageRank algorithm to calculate a web page’s rank in a numerical score based on the importance it gets. Its rank is loosely dependent on the inbound links to a page apart from the relevance and credibility of these links.

Until now, PageRank has been one of the many variables included in Google's Webmaster Tools, but according to Google analyst Susan Moskwa:
"We've been telling people for a long time that they shouldn't focus on PageRank so much... We removed it because we felt it was silly to tell people not to think about it, but then to show them the data, implying that they should look at it."

Now a days Google is only updating the PageRank displayed in Google Toolbar a few times a year.

It certainly wont stop certain webmasters using the tool to obtain high quality links to enhance their sites ranking. Hopefully this may reduce the amount of people trying to manipulate the search results by selling links on high PR pages. This move by Google is a statement to Webmasters that PR is not as important as everyone thinks, lets hope it changes some peoples minds.
