    Google Webmaster Tools Drops PageRank

    From this thread at Google's help forum:

    We've been telling people for a long time that they shouldn't focus on PageRank so much; many site owners seem to think it's the most important metric for them to track, which is simply not true. 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. :-)
    Wonder if G. will eventually get rid of this metric entirely?

    Yeah right......... I think loosely translated it means:

    "We wish we didnt have to tell you about it in the first place but now that youre gaming the system, we'll make it harder for you to assess your page rank and therefore know what it is you need to do to increase it."
    There is nothing better than a domain.

    Google Webmaster Central team explained it was removed because Google keeps telling webmasters “that they shouldn’t focus on PageRank so much.” They felt it was “silly” to keep telling webmasters that, and at the same time show it in Webmaster Tools. So Google removed it from Webmaster Tools. I think this is a good thing, since I agree it is obsessed over too much, plus what Google showed in Webmaster Tools was not very useful to webmasters.
