PageRank is a link analysis algorithm;named after Larry Page, the Google co-founder, and used by the Google Internet search engine, that assigns a numerical weighting to each element of a hyperlinked set of documents, such as the World Wide Web, with the purpose of “measuring” its relative importance within the set.
The algorithm may be applied to any collection of entities with reciprocal quotations and references.
In a layman’s explanation: Google Pagerank is a possesive quantity, nay, quality, assigned to pages for ranking during searches on Google’s search engine — Google.com.
It’s necessary to explain briefly, how Pagerank affects results on Google.com searches.
A certain Pagerank score is assigned specially to each page indexed by Google search engine. Each page can score a Pagerank of zero to 10(ten) depending on the page’s importance on the internet.
