PageRank is the system followed by Google’s for ranking web pages. Obviously a page with a higher page rank is more valuable and will be listed in the top search results than a page with a lower rank. The link structure of a web page has an important role in assessing the value of a web page. Backlinks from important sites with high pagerank will add up to the page ranking of a site. It is just like electing a leader in a political election. The greater the votes that a leader polls, greater will be his acceptability and popularity among the voters.
Page rank of a site can be increased by submitting the site in different web directories and by publicizing your site details. This will fetch you Backlinks for your site from other websites, which will add up to the popularity of your site and page ranking.
Google PageRank is a complex link analysis algorithm. It involves as many as 200 parameters, named after Larry Page, best known as the co-founder of Google. Page rank is an indicator of the authority and importance of a web page. However, it is interesting to note that a higher PR has lesser priority on the search engine rankings (SERPS) or SEO. Though a higher page rank is considered as a hallmark of quality and authority, it has nothing to do with search engine rankings, which is determined more by the website content and the frequency of updates and its authenticity.
High page rank domains will get spidered by Google more often than a low page rank site because of quality inbound and backlinks.
A higher PR will also ensure deeper crawls.
Higher the PR, more will be link exchange offers from webmasters.
A high PR domain will have more ad space value for selling advertising ads.
A high PR site will attract more visitors.

Page ranks are considered as the bed rocks of quality web pages. Higher the pagerank higher will be the authority and the popularity of the web site. Some of the examples of Page rank 10 sites include CNN.com and India.gov.in among others.
PR 0-2: Websites that have a pagerank, between 0-2 are typically start- up companies and new websites. A website will be given a pagerank when Google caches the first few results and later on depending on the quality of web pages, the page rank may go up to 2. Most new websites that manage to get high quality back links will also get a higher page rank from search engines like Google.
PR 3-6: A well proven site that has good back links and steady performance to its credit falls in this category. Most websites take around 1 year and many high quality backlinks to reach this milestone of a Pagerank of 3-6.
PR 7-10: Websites with a Pagerank 7 or more are considered as the pioneers in their business segment. It takes a lot of time and sustained effort to reach this mark and only very few sites manage to reach this prestigious ranking of Pagerank above 7.
Think of a bigger site: By increasing the number of pages and interlinking these pages, you can attain a higher page rank. Backlinks too are important to get a pagerank. However stuffing too many pages with worthless content might not do any good as Google can penalize you for inappropriate content.
Build up a network: Pagerank can be built up only through quality back links. Reciprocal linking might also prove handy at times. But it is always better to get a one way “dofollow” link from a premium web site, which will hold more value while counting your page rank in future.
