PageRank measures the relative importance of your website. The score is assigned on an algorithm scale of 0 to 10, meaning that the move from 4 to 5 is significantly more difficult than from 1 to 2. For your reference, eBay’s PR is 7 and Amazon’s is 8.
The number of links to pages on your site from other websites is one signal of the importance of your site, relative to competitors.
