PageRank Tutorial:

First I want to say that page rank is not as important as it used to be, but it is still important. PageRank of 0, on the Google Toolbar, is not unusual, especially for newer websites with few or no relevant links to their own web pages. But you may have noticed that it is not necessarily important to Search Engine Rank Positions, as there are often sites with few or no links to their own site, but highly relevant content.

PageRank is a calculation of the popularity of a web page, based on the quality and number of links that point to it.
A link to your page is seen as a vote of confidence, and a vote from a site that has high page rank is much more valuable. A link from a PR7 site is worth dozens of links from PR2 sites. So the best way to improve your page rank is to get some links from high page rank sites. If you
have more than one site or sub-domain don't link them from every page to each other, as Google sees this as a prohibited technique to trick the search engines and would penalize your site.

Google says:

"PageRank also considers the importance of each page that casts a vote, as votes from some pages are considered to have greater value, thus giving the linked page greater value. Important pages receive a higher
PageRank and appear at the top of the search results. "

Each page should have a link back to your Home Page, (usually a linked logo) and perhaps to some of your other sub-pages as well.
There are many reasons for doing these things:
- Assigns weight to your pages if other sites with PR 4 or higher link to them.
- Takes weight away from your pages if they link to other sites (this doesn't mean that you should eliminate your external links, just be judicious.) And bear in mind that if those external sites are yours, you're passing some of this site's PR on to your other sites.
- In passing PR on to external sites, the PR is divvied up among all the links on that page.
- Some of the PR on any one of your site's pages is recycled back to your site if you have internal links (like "Home Page").

PageRank was developed as the basic sorting algorithm for their search tool (then known as Backrub) and was based on a very simple concept, trust

Remember, You can put link to your site, but donīt make circles like A->B-C->A ... this will can be considered cheat by the GoogleBot.

It is better to make circles than link all the sites back and forth on every page. I do circles A->B->C->D->A-> there is no cheat
