I’ve always been of the opinion that part of Google’s success is that they get website owners involved in the pagerank competition; many become obsessed by their pagerank ‘score’, counting the days until the next pagerank update. It’s addictive and can distract from the real work at hand. A word of advice, high pagerank doesn’t necessarily mean high page visits so don’t get too obsessed by your Google Pagerank.
