Blogging Chatter: Is PageRank Relevant in 2015?

The last time Google updated their algorithm on pagerank was in 2013. In recent years, Google has been looking more towards websites being mobile-friendly and content rich. That leads many bloggers to ask, is PageRank still relevant?

"Stack of Copy Paper" by Jonathan Joseph Bondhus
Most experts agree that Google PageRank is mostly dead. It is not only a remnant of what it used to be. Behind the scene, Google is probably still monitoring and ranking websites on their own merits... but the updates have been intentionally lacking. Look more towards getting relevant readers and captivating audience. It's all about content and quality. Don't try to aimlessly improve pagerank or numbers. That means nothing for Google now and should not be something you look for in improving your website or advertising.
