Search for "compare wireless phone" in Google. A few links down, letstalk.com shows up (my major competitor). When I click to go to the letstalk.com site through the search engine, its PageRank shows as 0. However, when I direct connect to the letstalk.com website, it's PageRank is 5.

I am COMPLETELY not understanding something.

How can this be? Also, how can the VERY popular search term "wireless phones" only list one website with a PageRank more than 0? I thought Google listed results by PageRank -- I've always assumed this. The top site has a PageRank of 4, nothing else has a PageRank.

The toolbar seems to trip on root domains quite a bit (buggy as Chris says).

What I do is delete a trailing slash or default document and the PR shows up. So, if no PR shows up for this:




the this will work:
