The PageRank algorithm is named by one of its authors and founders of Google – Lawrence Page. It analyses hypertext links between web pages in order to count how valuable each web page is for consumers. Links on more important web pages are counted with a higher value than those on less important web pages. The scale of PageRank value is logarithmic, which means that, for example, a page with rank 2 is considered to be of much less importance than a page with rank 3, which is then again of much less importance than a page with rank 4 etc. Page with rank 2 is thus significantly less than two times less important than the one with rank 4. Page without a rank are provided with 0 rank value. There are very few webs with the highest PageRank 9 or 10, some of them are twitter.com, get.adobe.com/flashplayer, facebook.com, and google.com.

Webscore Page Rank, however, can obtain ranks for the whole domain only. Online PageRank Checker returns Google PageRank for arbitrary web page.
