The page rank of a single page on a website can be identified through various means. Users can use the Google toolbar - or a similar product -, run website scripts that check the page rank of that page and even online page rank tools that do that. Most however do not offer the option to check the pagerank of multiple pages of a domain.
It would be really handy to point a page rank tool to a domain to have it look up and display the page rank of all pages it finds on that domain. I recently discovered the page rank tool PaRaMeter (Page Rank Meter) at the German AlterFalter blog from my former colleague Stefan.
PaRaMeter is a page rank tool that can check the pagerank of a selected website. It can also crawl that website and list every page found and check the pagerank of those pages as well.
Another interesting and very handy feature is the selection of the Google Datacenter (or multiple ones) that you want to check the pagerank of. This is useful during pagerank updates because datacenters usually do not run in sync. That would mean that you could spot your new pagerank in a few datacenters while the others display still the old one.
The program is really easy to use. Just enter a web address into the url form and click on the plus icon to add it to the queue or the start button to retrieve its page rank right away. You can alternatively import urls in bulk using csv or text files.
A click on tools > extract urls opens a new window that you can use to retrieve all web links found on a website to run pagerank checks on those links as well.
The program is fully compatible with all recent versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system including Windows 7 and 8.Advertisement
