www.mysql.com higher PageRank than Google

Google offers a little Toolbar that provides additional information about the displayed website, including the PageRank value that indicates how "important" the website is in Google's eyes (and that's said to be used to calculate the relevance in Google searches).

Here are some values that I looked up:

www.mysql.com: 9/10
www.planetmysql.org: 8/10
www.google.com: 8/10
www.microsoft.com: 9/10
www.yahoo.com: 9/10
www.oracle.com: 9/10
www.postgresql.org: 8/10
www.amazon.com: no value
www.phpmyadmin.net: 8/10
www.php.net: 9/10
www.wikipedia.org: no value
www.novell.com: 8/10
www.redhat.com: 8/10
www.orf.at (Austria's national TV broadcast station): 7/10
www.db4free.net: 6/10
www.freesql.org: 5/10 (but currently no content)
www.freemysql.net: 4/10
www.mpopp.net: 4/10

There's only one website that I've found with a value of 10/10: www.apple.com.

However, it's great to see that the relevance of MySQL's website is among the highest of all websites of the world.

hey Markus,

Good to see MySQL's PR up to 9. I just checked and Google's PR is 10. Google feeds their own site as an "authoritative" one so it will always have a PR of 10 IMHO.

Great find though.

That's strange - here it shows 8.

Maybe it's because they localized the page and in Austria it immediately redirects to google.at. But still it's interesting that Google is at least not at 10 everywhere.

Fascinating! sheeri.com is a 6/10.

6/10 is pretty good ;-).
