Free Google Pagerank Checker Tool

I started research for this article wondering why I would want a free Google pagerank checker tool when I can get the same information from the Google bar. The first few page ranking tools I reviewed didn't sway my opinion much.

Then I found a nice utility that changed my mind.

*** Strike One ***
It didn't change my mind because of its ability to look up single URL ratings. I can do that by just going to the website and using the utility that Google already has in place.

*** Strike Two ***
There are many nice things about this part, such as a variety of different options to choose from.

However, if I have a very low PR I certainly wouldn't want to advertise that fact.

Further, one can never be completely sure with what they are installing when they install someone else's widgets. In most cases this is not an issue, but it certainly is something to keep in mind when putting someone else's code on your website.

*** Home Run ***
While I'm not to interested in a single page look up tool and installing their code on my website doesn't make a great deal of sense; this third option more than made up for what the other two were lacking.

Simply put, this utility allows you to check 25 different URL's at exactly the same time.

I tried it with 3 of the sites I manage and the answer was both accurate and fast in coming. While working on my laptop I have learned to be patient, but their was no reason to wait for the results with page ranking tool.

Plus, if I can get such quick results with 25 URL's, I can certainly trust that a single URL will return results very quickly too.

*** Score Wrap ***
* Single lookup tool doesn't impress me much.
* Installing foreign code on my website doesn't interest me much.
* Being able to find the rating of 25 different websites instantly. Now your talking.

What's that?
