Many SEOs Still Don't Get PageRank

With all that is going on with these PageRank Scores, I am seriously amazed to see a DigitalPoint Forums thread with a poll that shows SEOs are still all over the board on the meaning of PageRank.

The poll asked "How Obsessed Are You With Your PageRank?" The responses, 58 of them so far, are across the board - which implies there is a ton of confusion about the importance of Toolbar PageRank.

  • Obsessed. "I check it daily" - 15.52%
  • Concerned. "I check it weekly" - 18.97%
  • Normal. "Check it every month" - 18.97%
  • Laid Back. "Check it every update" - 25.86%
  • Don't Care. "I never check it" - 20.69%

Was this past PageRank update a message? If so, from this poll, it doesn't appear SEOs and Webmasters got that message as a whole. At least not yet.

I find this very shocking. PageRank given by toolbars (and even Google's Webmaster Program) are rough measurements that even Google says does not change often. There are so many other things to check daily: quality of traffic, keywords, new links (from blogs), new referrals, competitors' activities etc.
