How good is our blog? The best indicator is our CLAWBIE (Canadian legal blog award). But I was also glad to learn more about our Page Rank (PR). Page Rank is Google’s ranking system that indicates how authoritative and credible a website is. Every single website is ranked on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest. You can check any website’s PR at www.prchecker.info, or below.

According to the Rainmaker Institute, Page Rank is a logarithmic scale, like the Richter scale. “Each step up is a multiple of 100.” So a PR of 5 is 100 times more credible in Google’s eyes than a PR of 4, and 10,000 times more credible than a PR of 3. “Very few legal websites in the legal industry ever rise above a 3 or 4” and a PR of 5 “is very rare”. (CANLII, of course, gets a 7- congratulations!)
It’s probably not that simple- no one outside Google knows for sure. But go ahead and check out our Page Rank anyway! And if you enjoy all the hard work that we put into writing this blog, please link to us if you can. And if you have any ideas on how our blog can be even better, please post a comment.
But remember, no sensible lawyer would give legal advice through a blog, and we don’t. If you need to consult a lawyer, please call one. Thank you!
