The most useful thing for all of us to know - What is GooglePageRank?
It is a mathematic calculations  created by the founders of Googleto estimate
the importance of web pages. The basic idea behind the PageRank caculations is the fact that
a link (also called hyperlink or backlink) from first page  to second page can
be seen as a vote of trust from first page  to second page. The higher the
number of links pointing to a page, the higher its PageRank, and the
higher its rankings inside Google's search engine results. That means you have to create more pages on your web site or blog other than home pages. The most important thig is that each page link has a specific value. The specific value of that page is determined by the total number of outgoing link on that page. For e.g. if a page has pagerank value of 10 and 5 outgoing links then each of those link pass 2 points.  Many people try to get external links to increase their pagerank but the main thing is that internal links also useful to improve pagerank. It  depends on how you create your web site or blog.
Suppose that you just created a website with one page only, the
homepage. At this point your website has a PageRank of 0, because it
is not even indexed by Google.  You then convince a friend to link to your website. The page where the link is placed has a PageRank of 10 and 2 outgoing links, so
your website is receiving 5 points of from that link.
Now your website would have a PageRank of 5. If you then proceed to
create a second page on your website, linking to it from the homepage,
that second page would also receive 5 points of PageRank from the
homepage link, increasing the total PageRank of your site to 10.
And there you go. By adding a second page to your site your managed
to actually create PageRank.
The concept is very simple  every time Google indexes a new page from your website,
 the total PageRank within your website will also increase, because that page will be
receiving points from the other internal pages of your site.
Getting external links is obviously essential to having a high
PageRank, but increasing the number of pages that Googleindexes
from your site can also help, and most people neglect this.
For example, if you are trying to position your mini website on
the first search result for a specific keyword you could try
adding more pages of content to that site, to increase its overall

Finally, if you want to monitor how many pages Google is indexing
from your website, simply search for "site:yourdomain.com" onGoogle.
