The Green Bar:
What does the horizontal
green bar mean?
The green rating bar which is visible when using the downloadable
and free Google Toolbar,
is a measure of the importance of a web page, as determined by Google's patented
PageRank technology. These PageRank bars tell you at a glance whether other people
on the web should consider a webpage to be a high-quality page worth checking
out. Pagerank is the best and easiest way to quickly determine if other sites
on the Internet are linking to a web page. The higher the Google pagerank rating,
the more inbound links the website has.
Google itself does not evaluate
or endorse websites. Rather, they measure what others on the web feel is important
enough to deserve a link. And because Google does not accept payment for placement
within their results or pagerank ratings, the information you see when you use
the toolbar and/or conduct a web search is based on totally objective criteria.
Pagerank ratings are also visible while using the Google
Directory. Along each sites listing on the left will be a small graphic of
pagerank rating. The websites listed in the Google Directory are also placed in
order of pagerank, which creates a more effective directory by keeping good sites
quickly accessible by higher placement. From our observations, the most up-to-date
and accurate measures of pagerank are available in the directory since it seems
that Google updates its directory rating more often then the information visible
via the toolbar.
