Yep - I still was happy when my PR4 went to PR5 and then my PR5 site went to PR6.. It's a small little pat on the back, but at the end of the day, it's irrelevant

I do however pay attention to Alexa Rank as, for the most part, it tracks publicly how popular website is (based on users who have the Alexa Toolbar installed on their browser). I use this primarily for scouting new blogs for banner advertising etc.

And I love Alexa - to find out where my competition is advertising - via the backlinks.

Besides Google Page Rank and Alexa, are there other accurate and trustful alternatives?

Obviously, to be able determine how websites are ranked by visitors is an important piece of information for everybody that has a website and for the professionals that do SEO.

Alexa is good for seeing how much traffic a site gets, but at the end of the day it depends on how you want to rank against the other website Rodrigo.

For me, I don't look at places like Godaddy and say - wow, they get "X" traffic. Much like I don't look at one of my main competitors in a niche industry and say "wow they have that much traffic". At the end of the day I look at the quality leads and how much exposure they have compared to my exposure. I rely on Marketing Samurai quite heavily for my SEO stuff to track rankings of specific words, backlinks and overall potential traffic.

Potential traffic and REAL traffic are two different things, but if you're exposed correctly, you will have things work out in the end.

Statbrain was another that was quite popular along with your regular Google Trending, Quantcast, Compete and various others. I don't know how accurate they are however - I know they're not accurate on my websites

When we do SEO work for people through bigredseo.com, we don't look at how much traffic a site gets, but rather how well a word ranks for SEO and adjust for those needs. 10,000 people coming to the site does me no good if they're looking for Fishing in Omaha. 10 people looking for Web Hosting is a much better result for me

I'd rather focus on keeping customers happy and finding customers locally. Word of mouth is gold and I won't let Google control my destiny.

Your local community is a great source for new clients, and word of mouth is gold. When we started, we had 60 reps pounding the streets in Metro St. Louis - to which we owe a large part of our success. But saying that - you also need to take advantage of the power of Google and social media marketing - leave no stone uncovered.

Google Page rank is not important even ranking of your keywords is more important using your targeted keywords.
Google Page rank is a number from 0 to 10, shows that how many your website is popular.

PR makes no sense in Google search result. I made lots of researches and many web designers said that the key factor is the website title which should be close to the user search keywords.

Would you please expand on that, because I don't exactly understand what you're saying.

It hardly matters what page rank you have in GOOGLE. What matter is the amount of traffic to you site via backlinks and your hold in Search Engine's listing via employment of powerful keywords, articles, press releases, etc.
