When I use Internet Explorer 6.0, with the Google Toolbar installed,
and visit www.stbarthvillafinistere.com from Australia- the toolbar
displays a PageRank of 4.
I would expect other users from other locations to see the same
PageRank. It is about what you would expect for a site listed in Open
Directory and linked to by one PR5 page.
The site is listed in Google Directory:
... and the sites listed above and below it also have a PageRank of 4 displayed.
The PageRank displayed by the Google tooolbar is just an
approximation. In reality PageRank is allocated in more than just
whole numbers - for example, your site's PageRank could really be 4.2
or 4.7. Google ToolBar and Google Directory are the only expressions
of PageRank available.
Please keep in mind that PageRank should be seen as a relative value.
In my opinion the total average PageRank would naturally rise with
time, and every now and then Google would need to reduce everyone's
PageRank a little, or else it would get crowded at the top. What
really counts isn't PageRank, but rather ranking for a search term and
the number of visitors you receive from Google search queries.
