No SEO should look at the Google toolbar PageRank anymore. There’s a new SEO metric to assess the quality of a page or domain.’
LRT Power*Trust Browser Extension
You sure heard about Google's Toolbar PageRank and used it at some point to assess the quality of a website or a specific page. Although the PageRank algorithm itself is important, Google’s Toolbar PageRank is just a useless SEO metric.
PageRank is officially dead and no serious SEO should consider it anymore. In March 2016, Google has officially confirmed removing the Toolbar PageRank.
Now that the Toolbar PageRank is gone, SEOs still need a reliable set of metrics to look at when assessing the trustworthiness and power of a page or domain. LinkResearchTools developed the LRT Power*Trust metric already in 2012 and, since 2015, offers it also as a powerful browser extension for Chrome and Firefox.
The Web changes every day, good links can become bad links and the other way around. You should always make sure you are using the most accurate, up-to-date metrics when evaluating link building opportunities. PageRank was for a long time far from being accurate or up-to-date.
But here's the good news.
LinkResearchTools developed the perfect alternative: the LRT Power*Trust extension.

No SEO should look at Google’s toolbar PageRank anymore
There are a bunch of SEO applications and toolbars out there that still have the classic Google Toolbar PageRank as the main metric to indicate the quality of a page or domain.
Google used to update the Toolbar PageRank only when they felt like it. Usually, the updates were done quarterly.
But since March 2016, Google officially announced that they have decided to kill off the Toolbar PageRank.
Google explained that they still use the PageRank data within the ranking algorithm, but the external Toolbar PageRank values are gone for good.
For years and years, Google has stripped away PageRank from their Toolbars and browsers and hasn’t updated the PageRank score in it in years.

LRT Power*Trust is a unique metric that measures the overall quality of a page or domain.

2. LRT Trust – a metric that calculates the quality of links by analyzing the inheritance of trust from trusted sites. It helps you understand the overall quality of a website or page, not just quantity of links.

1. Domain level
