What is PageRank Drain?
How is the PageRank Drain determined?
How important is the PageRank Drain for search engine optimization?
In recent years, PageRank and its drain have become much less important. Also, all the tools from Google to view the PK of a website have been removed. However, it can be assumed that Google still uses the determined values for the ranking of search results to a certain extent.
The reasons for minimizing the algorithm include:
- No priority on the actual content quality of the linked pages
- Focus on website operators instead of users
- Possibility of manipulation through link purchases & Co
How to view the PR drain of your site?
Information about PageRank and Drain officially became a thing of the past in spring 2016. Even before that, the tools for viewing had not been updated for some time. Alternatively, backlinks to your own page can be found and analyzed online through various tools.
Do backlinks from sites with high outflow have a negative impact on your own website?
Today, PageRank makes up only a small part of the factors in ranking Google. High quality content, targeted keyword placement and organically generated backlinks more than make up for any negative impact.
