Importance
The importance of pagerank has been downgraded dramatically. There are many examples of low pagerank pages outranking high pagerank pages for competitive keywords. Now to day is the keywords used in the anchor tag from links pointing to the target page more important than the links to the target page on its own. Remember that the pagerank that Google display in the toolbar is outdated and toolbar pagerank updates occurring at three-month intervals.
