checking my page rank

In a previous post, William T. kindly checked over my page ranking when we
were on another topic. The results showed that the home page had a PR of 4.
But despite clearing my own PC's cache, I keep getting a different rank.
I'm really interested in how the page ranks with a keyword search (Isn't
everyone?) .
When people say they have a PR of x or y or z. what criteria are being used?
Are they using a standard formula or keyword?
Below is the "old" discussion about my page ranking.    Michael Roberts

has PR of 4

has PR of 0 (like all the other pages on your site I checked) which means
that your link will carry very little influence wrt: SERPs but the links
will help the target pages become indexed.

your site has been well indexed by google:
for example.  replace 'clock' with 'links' and you will see a listing that
includes your links page.

PR isn't search specific. The pr is attached to a page on your domain. Diff
pages diff pr, not diff searchs diff pr.

You may be confusing PR - Google's assessment of a page's significance based
on its inbound links - and the position that a particular site gets in the
search results - which is based on relevance to the search query and is
weighted to some extent towards the higher PR pages.

Check your Page Rank (PR) with the Google toolbar from /

Check your position in the results (SERP) by searching on the different
search terms that you've targeted - I know you knew that last bit but I
wanted to clarify the difference...

If you feel that any of the above is incorrect,
inappropriate or offensive in any way,
please ignore it and accept my apologies.
