Well.. I have to do this too. Everybody in DP and SeoPedia keeps bugging me about these Pagerank prediction tools.

I decided to take on the iWebTool, RustyBrick, Raketforskning, Futurerank and Seotime Pagerank Prediction Tools . Now i always thought the Rustybrick tool as being a toy. It regularly gives PR10 predictions for numerous websites (which is rather weird and totally not possible). With the newly emerged iWebTool, things might change (as far as i can see they use a fairly organic prediction method, using own internal Google PR calculation schemes).

And from what i noticed (i am pretty sure about this) the last 4 tools (all except Rustybrick) use the same method for the PR prediction. Just that Futurerank actually shows you predictions for each of the cheked DC’s, while Seotime, Rakerforskning and iWebTool automatically choose the highest prediction from all the DC’s.

I still think Rustybrick is the most deceptive of them all, showing really impossible results. The others are at least “human”.

Results for a lot of 10 websites i own/administrate or had/have contact with:

There is another pagerank prediction tool, proudly found and researched by Roman1 over at Digital Point forums, based on Dmoz as well as the Google Directory (the website must be in DMOZ for this “prediction tool” to be viable) and Digitalpoint members have all been trying to figure it out. Since all my websites or the websites i have in DMOZ are either not calculable trough this method, or don’t have enough sorrounding category websites to achive the prediction, i can’t say my thing. I’ll watch the outcome though.

Ah… I never trusted such tools, but all that remains to me now, with just days, or weeks before this PR update, is to wait and see the results.

I’ll publish them here.

What does your tool represent actually ? I can;t seem to find any words about that in your website, or any help at all. What i’m interested is your definition of “live” and how do you calculate the results.

Martin said:
February 2nd, 2006

The tool is a refinement of what most PR prediction tools already do. I hope to be able to post more details on the site soon.

February 2nd, 2006

Well this is my exact question, so that i can better understand the process. “What most PR prediction tools already do” is exactly nothing. What makes your Live Pr tool special ?

Glad to know that you’re posting some help or explanation in the near future.

My website got (5/10) with Iwebtools. Current PR is 0

miromulus said:
February 6th, 2006

So far only Iweb gave me results that I can trust. Their results match the PR I belive they will have at the next update by cheking the websites position in google directory.

April 29th, 2006

I suppose that the basic algorithm for rendering future page rank would have to do somehow with the number of backlinks that google offers upon a detailed search on that website. However I seriously doubt the accuracy of this sites in actually predicting future pagerank as some of the backlinks could have higher page rank and thus a site with few backlinks could actually have a high page rank and once tested in these future page rank prediction tools it could so with page rank 0 or somehow better , but far from the truth.

The tool by seotime seems to be very unpredictable. It is showing my PR3 site’s future PR =0 .. .. seems funny.

http://www.seotime.com/tools/rankprediction/

my site is http://www.wintechmedia.com and pr is 3 while this tool predicts it to 0. I feel the iwebtool’s PR prediction tool is much more reliable as it calculates on some algorithms and accuracy of back links.

Kevin said:
December 24th, 2006

I agree with Rohit iwebtool’s PR prediction tool is the most reliable pr prediction tool I’ve used thus far.

matthew said:
January 25th, 2007

I agree with the people saying Iwebtool is the most accurate. My site http://www.prettypetz.net was a 0 and all the other sites predicted it would stay a zero, but I webtool said it would be a 3. It turned out the be a 4 so I think its the best tool so far.

Jim said:
February 2nd, 2007

Hi there, I believe iwebtool to be the most accurate too. I have a fairly new site (about 1 month or so old) http://splunks.com that is PR0 and iwebtool predicts a PR4. Does anyone know when I might expect to see the change? Or when G does their PR toolbar updates?

kevin said:
February 7th, 2007

Does anyone know when the next page rank update is?

Michael said:
February 21st, 2007

Nice comparison, I’ve also found one http://www.pagerankprediction.com/. What do you people think about this?

raj said:
March 12th, 2007

I don’t any one can predict accurately. But for some strange reason only Iwebtool is the closest which predicts the future PR. I hope I get the the pr3 as predicted by iwebtool for my site http://urlsdirectory.com

rocco said:
March 24th, 2007

I really hope iwebtool is right. It has me at a three some days and a 4 on other. All the other tools have me at a 0. My website is http://www.realpropertyadvice.com. I think is probably is considering my placement on certain keywords.

Is there any really accurate PageRank Prediction Tool actually?

Prabhat Saini said:
March 30th, 2007

Well this collection made me happy and sad.

I love iwebtools for the fact that only they are showing some sympathy for all the work I have done for my site Movie Download Sites. Its current PR is 1 and iWeb predicts a increase to 4.1. Others all stay close to 0.8 – 1.2

I know its still a prediction but they must have taken some similar steps/calculations to predict, then why so much difference.

Check your future pagerank Here comes another tool to get an estimate of your future pagerank You can not check multiple URLs

Rajesh Thakur said:
April 21st, 2007

All predictor tools are not give accurate results. Some will show that pr 2 to 4 and some shows 2 to 0.iwebtool is good but i think it use data from msn. From some days msn is not showing backlink by using link:domain.com and from that day the iweb pr predictor tool give a message that pr cannot determine…

April 24th, 2007

Hello I am trying to check our future pagerank but all checkers seem to fail. Can anyone tell me if the checkers are down? Usually I use Iwebtool but this one has been down for a long time. :(

Bally said:
April 29th, 2007

I just want to know what dates does the page rank gets updated or after how many number of days?

May 4th, 2007

Glad to know that you’re posting some help or explanation in the near future.

Bally, I think page rank gets updated on average every 120days.

May 19th, 2007

Some intresting links here, not sure they work though. iWebTools seem ok but I can see lots of flaws.

Go check some blogs with 300 backlinks yet a pagerank of 7. I tcant work it out

May 27th, 2007

To check my Pagerank I always use iWebtool, I think it is the best and What is your favourite?

Ashwini said:
June 27th, 2007

But Iwebtool has some limitation ; i.e : it cant predict future pr if the site has less then 100 backlinks.
Thanks.

Well everyone seems to think there’ll be a pagerank update at the end of July 2007, so we”l be able to see which predictors were accurate. My school’s website: never shows up on the pagerank predictors, saying i have insufficient backlinks. I know this isn’t true becasue i built hundreds of links myself. It’s time for ‘wait and see’!

Ian said:
July 13th, 2007

sorry, i messed up the html on the previous post. I’m still learning!

Josh said:

Based on the above information I gues that a prediction is just a prediction and nothing more.

Juliano said:
August 9th, 2007

Olha, o iWebtool não têm funcionado direito para sites brasileiros (.com.br), apenas para sites .com. Alguém sabe por que isso? Antes funcionava. ENGLISH: People, iWebTool haven’t working for sites .com.br, only .com, .net… anyone knows why? In the past, it worked.

yunar said:
August 21st, 2007

I agree with all you guys who think that prediction is for fun only, I test many websites the result was very funny. Futurerank using PR prediction from iwebtool so the result exactly the same.

I just wish that Google will update their PR soon.

August 22nd, 2007

Well this collection done me pencil and sad.

I verve iwebtools for the observable that only they are manifest aught sympathy for all the work I take from done for my site Movie Download Sites. Its climbing PR is 1 and iWeb intimates a elongate to 4.1. Others all stay close to 0.8 – 1.2

I the whole story its still a foretellion but they must underplay taken numerous similar steps/calculations to loom, then why so much difference.

There was a serious disruption in PageRank recently, wasn’t there (with lots of pages having their rank downgraded).
I wonder what page rank prediction tool could predict that ;)
