Matt Cutts of Google on Mission to Remove PageRank from Toolbar

Dec 4, 2007 - 7:43 am 9 by

Many SEOs have been calling for Google to remove the PageRank score from the Google Toolbar for years now. Heck, we wrote dozens of articles on it, including these:

So Google knows about this and those who work closely with webmasters and SEOs also understand the importance of removing the PageRank score from the toolbar.

Matt Cutts posted in a Google Groups thread saying:

Personally, I wouldn't mind removing the PageRank in the Google Toolbar or swapping it with some other indicator, but that would be a large undertaking. Maybe that can be a long-term goal for me. :)

So Matt Cutts seems like he may be campaigning Google to remove that indicator from the toolbar. If anyone in Google has the influence to make that happen, it would be Matt. Matt, you have my support. ;-)
