Google PR 10 Websites List

Google Page Rank varies from 0 to 10, zero being the lowest page rank a website can get and 10 being the maximum page rank Google used to assign to a website. There are very few websites as of now that are carrying a perfect page rank of 10. Here is the list of those websites that having Google PR 10 in this current update from Google with their respective Alexa Rankings:

  1. – Alexa Rank: 4459
  2. Adobe Reader – Alexa Rank: 73
  3. – Alexa Rank: 9770
  4. AddThis – Alexa Rank: 159
  5. – Alexa Rank: 399791
  6. Universitas 21 – Alexa Rank: 432389
  7. Twitter – Alexa Rank: 10
  8. – Alexa Rank: 34010
  9. Coimbra Group – Alexa Rank: 1228487
  10. – Alexa Rank: 1470248

If you know of any other website or blog having perfect page rank of 10, please share in the comments section, I will append that to this list here.

If we believe the Alexa Rankings numbers for above mentioned websites, there will be huge traffic and popularity gab between these websites. No doubt, page rank is one of rankings factor on Google, but it’s the only one. If that was the case, websites having perfect page rank of 10 cannot have Alexa Rankings in 7 digits or even six digits.

In the recent times, importance of Google page rank has got down a bit. But still Google considers it as one of many factors it takes into consideration while deciding search engine rankings for your website for its targeted terms. So your website has chances of getting high rankings on Google search at least if you own a high PR blog or website. When it comes about deciding the credibility or popularity of a website, Google PR remains to be one of deciding factor. Apart from this, potential advertiser’s love to place their ads on high PR blogs and website only.

  15. William says:

    For me, this particular update kept things as they were, luckily that is. All and all, as I see it, the best way to avoid any issues with PR updates is to go slow with link building and keep it diversified as possible.

  16. rajkumar says:

  17. Even for my blog, PR remains the same.. Seems like it’s high time to work on link building from high PR blogs…..!! As natural backlinks not helping me to push the PR….

    Luckily, I’ve got PR3 for two of my sites. Happy :).

  25. Felicia says:

    Hi Anil,
    I checked my page rank and it still remains at PR2. It’s neither a good thing nor a bad thing. However, sometimes you think that after all the work you did in link building and updating posts regularly, you sometimes wish that a good result will be in your favor. Then again, what matters most is that you get some revenue for what you do. Thanks btw on your list on how to increase page rank.

  26. Anup says:

    Thanks for informing about this. My blog went up from 0 to PR4 in this update. I need to do some more effort to take my blog to the next level 🙂

    Getting Page Rank update will tell the bloggers about the author blog and its popularity… You have updated all best information on how your blog increased the page rank…
    Hope you may also like my blog and articles…
    thanking you

  29. to have high PR, then I think there is a link strategy Popularity. to have high PR, then I think there is a strategic link Popularity. That’s the important thing. Another thing that interested in link quality over quantity

  30. The link quality is very important. Also it’s important to have a blog always active if you want to have a better PR.

  31. I think overtime, people will start going from PageRank to Domain Authority.
    We’re 5 months and 2 days since the last update. I think Google Penguin has really
    put the smash down on Pagerank as google wants to rid the web of spam and selling links,
    which of course is driven by PR. I always did like the Google Pagerank, kind of a trophy
    for knowing you done a pretty good job with your SEO.

  32. ashar says:

    Just checked for the first time (thanks for link) and very disappointing PR 2 for web site and only PR 1 for my blog, which I think is good and honest. I will now have to work on this and read your tips on ranking
    thanks Anil
