GoogleGuy Claims PageRank Statement to be False

Dec 2, 2004 - 8:02 am 0 by

Yesterday I reported on a SEW Forum thread that discussed a quote from a supposed Google representing saying that PageRank is for Entertainment Purposes Only. GoogleGuy has commented on this forum post at this site and others saying:

I'd strongly disagree with the statement that the toolbar PageRank is for "entertainment purposes only"--millions of toolbar users use the PageRank display to judge the quality of pages. I think it's also a little irresponsible to quote JohnGalt claiming to talk to some random person at Google, and then for you to quote it as a reponse from Google, which makes it sound more official. I'm happy to refute that this is any sort of official stance.
