    Can You Make Money Online WITHOUT a Pagerank?

    I know a lot of people tend to emphasize how important Google's Pagerank is, but can you make a lot of money online WITHOUT one?

    I know more than likely you'll make more if you have a higher pagerank, but I see some people making a decent amount of money and they're PR0.

    Honestly, I think if you market your product/site right, then you should be fine... but I just want to hear what others have to say about it?

    PR has very little, if not nothing to do with how much money you make from your site, unless you make a living of trading links.

    Well you could make millions of dollars without even being listed in a search engine if you have the right site. So to answer your question ... yes. But search engine traffic does help, and you are likely to get more traffic if you have a high PR.

    Sales conversion does not depends on PR of the site, it depends on how much targeted traffic you get and how effectively you retain and convert them.

    PR is the effect of people finding your site and wanting to tell others about it. It is not the cause.

    It all depends on how you want to make money through the web site. As has been said, you can make money without page rank. But sometime its does help - for example, selling links.

    Actually, you can't gain more money if you're not listed in the top of search engines... And also you dont need PR to rank higher on search results for your target keywords.

    Affiliate marketing ... JV partnerships ... PPC advertising ... offline advertising.

    None of the above require a listing in a search engine and millions have been made using any one of those methods.

    Indeed......there are lot of ways to earn money online and you don't need to have PR for your site. You can earn money online through publishing adsense ads on your site, through affiliate marketing, programs like pay per post etc....

    I dont think it matters unless you are selling an ebook which explains how to get to PR5 in a week or something like that.

    Pr really matters in some cases if it is a big comp[any web site for a long term business, you do can earn a lot with site without PR, even by using paid ppc traffic but still you will have no significance and authority without PR

    This statement isn't anything close to being true. That's how bad it is.

    PR only indicates the link popularity of a page. It doesn't mean anything else and has absolutely nothing to do with making money.

    What is important is relevant traffic.

    So being high in the SERPS, is a good metric.
