Google is in the midst of a major update of their indexes that search-engine professionals are calling "Update Jagger." PageRank is Google's measure of a web page's value or worth. The inaugural or initial PageRank for Cycle-licious is PR5, which is fantastic for a brand-new website, especially one on a niche topic like bicycles. As far as I know, it's extremely difficult for a site that's less than a year old to rank any higher than a 5.

I see that Jon Maus's new BikePortland website also has an initial PR of 5. Good job!

Thank you to my friends for helping to make this happen. This is a communal thing -- I read every bit of your feedback and I really appreciate the input you provide.

    IMPORTANT: Please post comments for this article at the new CYCLELICIOUS 2.0 version of this page.
How do you determine the PR for your site? Any advice would be helpful. Thanks! -John
To see the PageRank of a page, you have to install the Google Toolbar, which shows you the PageRank for each web page you view. The Toolbar is available for Internet Explorer and Mozilla.

I totally don't know how Cyclelicious rated a 5 -- I expected to see 3, maybe 4 at the most.
Congrats, Cyclelicious.
BTW, where's my bumper sticker?
