    there is no direct relationship between mozrank and pagerank.

    mozrank (or correctly put: "mozRank", or "mR") is a system designed by the nice people over at seoMoz that is meant to 'mimic' pagerank effectively, but providing SEOs with a more accurate interpretation - for instance 5.28 instead of just "5".

    Its handy for finding pages that have been PR penalized etc.

    HOWEVER: its taken from a small(er) datasample than google's index. I am however a PRO member over at seomoz and can heartily recommend it. its a great site, with great tools and great people.

    Google’s Toolbar PR is not an accurate measurement of the actual PageRank. It is qualified by anti-spam measures. For example, a page that sells links may have its Toolbar PR decreased but its MozRank will still remain high. However, this is rare enough that across the board we see a fairly reasonable correlation between the two.

    While PR is a patented trademark of Google, MozRank is provided by an independent tool by SEOMOZ.
    I agree that Google's toolbar PR does not always show the actual ranking of a page/site due to what you say anti-spam measures initiated by Google.
    On the other-hand MozRank is much more comprehensive.
    Still I would go with PR simply because Google is numero-uno in the search world and SEOMOZ is very small compared to it.

    I also see co-relation between the two for some sites -- but all those sites are old ones. A site with a single PR8 link and no other link might get PR 6/7. But its MozRank will be very low because MozRank takes lots of factors into account including link popularity on major search engines, popularity on blogosphere, wikipedia links, traffic rank etc.
    PR just count the strength and quality of incoming links - no matter how many.

    Hi,

    You could say that MozRank is a competitor to Google’s page rank system, although they rate things differently. Their algorithm for the page ranking must work differently, otherwise they would be violating Google’s patent for the specific manner and algorithms used when Google establishes page rank.

    Links with targeted anchor text are generally regarded to be the most important factor in search rankings according to search engine optimization experts. However, this factor has remained particularly difficult to nail down as we have had little to no access to the data necessary to correlate anchor text links to actual rankings.

    Historically, the standard measurement we have had available for determining the extent to which a page was externally optimized was a simple ratio where the number of links pointing to a page with the correct anchor text was divided by the total number of links pointing to that page and then multiplied against the PageRank of that target page. This would allow us to determine what percentage of PageRank could be attributed to the correct anchor text. Below is a pie chart of exactly that type of measurement. Each slice represents a different piece of anchor text. As you can see, approximately 42% of the anchors pointing to this page are using the correct, targeted anchor text.

    The more interesting item to note is that it appears MozRank and PageRank are most similar at the PR3/MR3 range. If you see a PR3, you are likely to see between a MR2 and 4.

    MozRank is more likely to under-represent the actual Page Rank. Link Juice just like page rank flows from page to page of your site or links to others sites on your pages. MozRank almost always under-estimates its value

    MozRank (mR) displays how well-liked given web page is on web. Pages with high mozRank scores tend to rank best. The more links to given page, more well-liked it becomes. Links from important pages raise a page's reputation, and then its mozRank, above unpopular websites.

    A web page's mozRank can be better by getting many links from semi-popular pages or a few links from very popular pages. Links from important pages raise a page's reputation, and then its mozRank, above unpopular websites.

    To measure the actual PageRank accurately, Google’s Toolbar PR isn’t appropriate. Though the MozRank will remain high, a page which sells links may have its Toolbar PR decreased.

    Though the rating process is really different, MozRank is considered as a competitor to Google’s page rank system. To avoid violating Google’s patent; algorithm for page rank should work differently.

    mozRank (mR) shows how popular a given web page is on the web. Pages with high mozRank (popular) scores tend to rank better. The more links to a given page, the more popular it becomes. Links from important pages (like www.cnn.com or www.irs.gov) increase a page's popularity, and subsequently its mozRank, more than unpopular websites.

    We have discovered that using an average of Pagerank and MOZRank works well when we optimize for small business owners.

    Best SEO

    It is a nice system to mimic PageRank effectively. It is much more comprehensive as compared to Google’s Toolbar PR. There is no correlation between the two.

    Mozrank is a popular system that is created by a team of professionals over at seoMoz. It is designed to 'mimic' pagerank effectively.

    It has a fair similarity with Google’s Toolbar. However, a page that sells links may have its Toolbar PR decreased, but its MozRank will continue to remain high.
