Google PageRank

What is PageRank? PageRank is a numeric value that represents how important a page is on the web. Google figures that when one page links to another page, it is effectively casting a vote for the other page. The more votes that are cast for a page, the more important the page must be. Also, the importance of the page that is casting the vote determines how important the vote itself is. Google calculates a page''s importance from the votes cast for it. How important each vote is is taken into account when a page''s PageRank is calculated. PageRank is Google''s way of deciding a page''s importance. It matters because it is one of the factors that determines a page''s ranking in the search results. It isn''t the only factor that Google uses to rank pages, but it is an important one. So in a word we have the code you need to check and display your pagerank.
