About the looming debate about pr being in its decline - that it really doesn't matter much, any more. As said by some of the "leading experts".
That's only partly true, I've discovered. Now with some of the thrid party explorer tools placing much less an emphasis on it's attributed value.
This assessment is almost irrelevant. Because, the bottom line, is that operators of many sites are much likelier to respond to a link request for a site having the higher pr, all else equal. That is what is being missed here. Don't be fooled into thinking otherwise. It's so intensely ingrained.
Then too, as G has such as proclivity to shift the playing field, one way and the next, to keep everyone off guard, pr might actually be made to mean more in the future than it has in the past.
