The end of Pagerank? Google removes PR from Webmaster Tools
Pagerank has been a point of discussion throughout the years. It must be clear for many now that Pagerank doesn't really matter when it comes to ranking. Still many feel it is an important aspect in measuring the strength of your website.
SER talked to Google Susan Moskwa who said:
"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. :-)"
Google apparently already removed it earlier this week when it released new Webmaster Tools Labs features.
