How is Google Pagerank earned and does it matter?

What Is Google PageRank, How Is It Earned & Does It Matter in 2016?

In this blog post by Adams, Adams explains what Pagerank is and how it is earned on Google. Pagerank is defined by how much good number of inbound links are coming in to one’s website. The more good links pointing to your website the higher the pagerank. In addition, one’s website’s pagerank is calculated and depending on the number of links that, that page has links pointing to the pagerank is split up and distributed to the linked websites. Adams explains this as the distribution of “link juice” and pagerank points.

This is relevant to what we are currently learning in class because we are looking into the distribution of page rank points and ranking our pages. In addition, Adams touches on an interesting topic about rel=”nofollow” which when attached to a link it tells Google’s algorithms to not transfer any pagerank points or “link juice” to that website. In conclusion, according to Google’s algorithms one should look into having quality links rather than too many links because some links may actually decrease one’s pagerank.

An additional thought that I wanted to mention was, if Google already puts the most relevant websites in the first pages of search results and people usually only stick around the first 5 pages of search results. Why does Google keep calculating those other dozens of pages if very few people look at them.
