Online Marketing Glossary P
Page Rank (PR): is a name for link analysis algorithm developed by Google. A number from 0 to 10 is assigned to a webpage as a relative measure of importance. Google updates PR only couple of times a year and to go move from one level to another gets harder with each level. In early years of Google PR was a good indicator of where the website will show up in the search. However, these days Google considers a lot more factors and a lot of times a webpage with lower PR can outrank the one with a higher one. We suggest not paying attention to your PR, instead you should pay attention on your financial return on investment from marketing activities performed by your SEO company.

Position Reporting: companies used to report on a position for each optimized keyword in Search Engine rank. While this is still practiced it is getting harder to calculate the position and relate it to ROI. Search Engines became highly local and adopt to both history of a user and a device searched on. As always we suggest to concentrate on ROI rather than a position obtained through your internet marketing efforts.
