Who has the highest Pagerank on their site as displayed by Google's toolbar?
I currently have PR3 - on my fairly new site.
Ia m VERY aware that PR does not really amount to much in terms of Search Engine rankings-- but it is a number you can concentrate on as showing improvement.
I was very happy to see mys ite show a PR 3 in less than 6 months since creation.

Yea, where are you getting your page rank from? I usually use SmartPageRank.com but their site has been up and down for a while now...

Raven you download the google toolbar, firefox has one but there are others you can use with IE.
Mr. Hamons - In my view Page rank / PR is a distraction with no value unless you want to sell a site to someone who places a value on it - for what reason I have no idea.
http://www.landscapinghockessinde.com/ has a pr 4 I just put it up to work on this summer when I get some time.
If I may offer a little direction because it seems you have spent some money on your site you probably would like people to find it.
Your listing on insiderpages.com comes up when looking for landscaping Shawnee and it provides a link back to your site which will help your site.
Results 1 - 10 of about 282,000 for landscaping Overland Park
www.insiderpages.com/b/15240370111 - 31k
Out of the searches below I did with Ks also,
Results 1 - 10 of about 187,000 for landscaping Shawnee
Results 1 - 10 of about 480,000 for landscaping Mission
Results 1 - 10 of about 2,720,000 for landscaping kansas city
Results 1 - 10 of about 2,650,000 for landscaping kansas city ks
but your site doesn't come up but sites with PR of 0, 1 come up.
These people are every where in the search engine, their tags arn't great but their not bad.
This is your description, keywords and title

Your page rank is important but you need to cover your keywords and lots of them. If you search outdoor lighting im on the 15th page. But if you search outdoor lighting tampa (http://www.resortlighting.com) im 1.

My PageRank just went back up to 4.
A 5 is very rare anymore. Many 5s dropped to 4s about 2 years ago. Probably since most landscape company websites don't have a huge web presence.
I still got plenty of calls whether it was a 3 like the last 1/2 year, or a 5 about 3 years ago.
The content is still more important than the PageRank.
My redwood page in my signature is not even a 0 yet, and it does quite well for it's niche.
