Visual PageRank Tool

Posted By Darren Rowse 17th of January 2007 Blogging Tools and Services 0 Comments

Here’s a fun little tool – Visual PageRank which gives you a quick visualization of every link on any given page.

So on a section of a site like my header you get this visual representation of page ranks of the links there:

I’m not sure that it’s really that useful – but it is fun to see what your own internal pages are ranked at if you have a large list of them like this.

  • I’ve seen a couple of these tools. They’re actually very useful if you point them to a tag cloud to see which tags are the “best” to use.

  • I’ve experimented with this tool for a few minutes and discovered it gives different values with each load at times, not too reliable I’d say. But as you said, it’s pretty cool nevertheless.


  • It’s pretty scary how much PR0 stuff I link to.

    But this confirms what I always though. When I first started blogging I would only post links to stuff that did well in Google search results and I got a lot of search traffic from Google very fast. Since I’ve started linking to other bloggers more… that has dropped.

  • Hehe, that wasn’t very encouraging. Sweet tool though, thanks Darren.

  • I’ve tried a few different tools that are supposed to give PageRank. It seems like they all give different results. For my page that is shown as having the highest PageRank in the Google Webmaster tools, they show a PageRank of zero. I haven’t spent time reading the Google’s technical explanation of PageRank. From what I understand, Google purposely doesn’t reveal PageRank so tools are using comparison between links to figure out how they rank. Am I totally confused on this? Are there any tools out there that are better than others?

  • I really like this tool. The others that do jsut the main page are nice, but this is a agreat tool.

  • Hmmm – interesting, very interesting… (Those of the right age know the right accent to use here) Not sure how I’ll use the data, but interesting none the less.
