Google Toolbar (Yes, we've already covered this... but just for a quick refresh before we dive
into the more complex stuff.)
To see the Google Page Rank of your website, you must download the Google toolbar. You
can download this for free by clicking the link below:
Once you have installed the Google toolbar, it will place a toolbar within your web browser, in
this case, Internet Explorer as shown below.
Notice the small green bar that says PageRank. If you hover your mouse over the green bar,
you will see your Google Page Rank as shown below.
Ok, now let's talk about "almost" EXACTLY how page rank is calculated. Over 99% of the
webmasters on the internet do not understand how Page Rank(PR) is calculated. I'm going to

it over and over.
So, why does it matter how PR is calculated?
It matters because you can use this knowledge to actually funnel PR throughout your website
and give different pages on your site a higher PR. The higher your PR is, the higher your
webpage will rank in Google.
Here is the Google Page Rank Formula, and I'm warning you... This might get a little nerdy,
but bear with me. I'll make everything very understandable.
