My site has a PR of 0 since it is a new site. I have tried some PageRank predictors that are offered by many websites. I keep getting up with different results, anywhere from a PR 0 to a PR 5.

I wonder if these PR predictors are usefull tools or shouldn't be taken seriously.

What do you think?

Not useful...nice idea but their calculations are flawed. Not to mention PR is not really what it used to be. I don't even think the google toolbar PR indicator is accurate.

I would say PR predictors are innacurate, But that wouldn't be true.. The truth is the result they give is completely fabricated.

lol IMHO worthless :) After dozens of explanation by Meman (thank you) about how insignificant is the google PR, I 'm no longer care about PR and now put more effort to drive more quality traffic instead. I even sleep better nowadays. :lol:

PR has no significant influence in determining the ranks in SERPs. Period.

However, I do think PR still have impact in domain pricing so if you are into domain trading, it's not a bad idea to focus on increasing your PR. Just my 2 cents.
