I found hostingdiscussion from Google so I guess it should have high rank, but my rank bar shows that hostingdiscussion has 0/10 rank in google and 51,129 in Alexa.

It seems Google rank is not as important as before.

I have never put any weight toward Google PageRank, especially comparing it to some level of success on the web, and when anyone starts talking about PageRank as some kind of standard or a point of success.

What's important for me personally is to have my sites listed fairly and highly for the relevant terms, such as hosting forum or web hosting forum, then some other terms and company names that are popular within the industry. That's all that matters because I am not after attracting a particular demographic - I am after attracting those who need hosting advice, have something to share or who in one way or another are related to the web hosting industry. A high page rank would give me nothing.

I also understand that today high page rank mostly belong to websites that are being linked to just a massive amount of times and consistently within other reliable sources. Sites like Amazon, CNet, NYTimes will essentially have high page rank because people link to them all the time.

But then perhaps my perception of Google PageRank is completely wrong.

PR is not the most important anymore, traffic and hits on keywords mostly work for me, I am rated PR 2 however I am page one in google for some highly used keywords.

Having over 800 links to your domain is helping your SERPS tremendously. Good work.

I agree that PageRank maybe not so important as it used to be. The main purpose I optimize my blogs to get them well ranked by Google is to get more paid review jobs from review brokers.

Pagerank is useful when it's available, that's for sure. I've seen respectable sites that have a high Pagerank and those with low Pagerank. To me, Pagerank is useful only for evaluating whether you would gain by having a back-link from a site or not.

Pagerank is slowing being killed by google but there are other ways to rank websites like SEOMoz Toolbar

Codero ranks number 3 right now in a Google search for dedicated servers and their PageRank is 0. I'm seeing HostingDiscussion with a PageRank of 2. Anytme you see a site with 0 PageRank ranking high in Google searches, you'll normally see thousands upon thousands of backlinks to their URL and domain.

PageRank is one factor considered by Google when it begins evaluating link popularity of domains. It is possible to gain some cool links from highly relevant sources and PR of all of them could be even zero but they are still valuable.

On the other hand, some webmasters who are constantly buying high PR links for their websites might end up having top PR domains but do you believe their higher PageRank scores would also lead to their guaranteed sop positions?

I think constantly buying high PR links will get you penalized by Google, and devastate your rankings.

PR is no longer used as a ranking factor in Google. It's become more of a play thing for advertisers to try and increase their rates for advertising.

... a thing that makes some webmasters excited when they see it go up, and extremely sad and frustrated when it goes down.

PR has been relevant for about a year when it launched, then it was over. It has become nothing more than slang term lingo for people and SEO "professionals" who have no idea what they are talking about and not willing to learn.
