Everyone has been rattling on about PageRank over the last couple of days due to the current PR update. Matt Cutts has therefore decided to answer a few questions about PageRank that seem to come up when the time arises. This is one of the first times I have heard Matt Cutts talk about PageRank, so it’s interesting to read his comments.

There’s nothing overly new there, but we can assertain a few things post. Firstly Google continually updates PageRank which acts like a floating point number rather than just a set 1-10 score. However, Google will export PageRank values using this 1-10 scale to the Google toolbar, which is a lengthly process. By the time they are finally visible, they are already outdated.
