What is Page Rank?
If you're involved in SEO, or have the Google Toolbar installed in your browser, chances are you'll have come across Google page rank.
Google Page Rank basically a score for your website out of 10 based upon how important Google think you're page is in the whole scheme of web searchery.
By important, Google means how many people link to your page, the more pages there are, the more relevant your page must be. But that's not quite it, it's no good having thousands of links to your page if they're not important pages themselves, so in turn, it is also determined by the quality of the pages that link to you.
Google themselves say the importance is made up of over 500 million variables and 2 billion terms, whilst Wikipedia have a "simplified" algorithm that in my opinion is anything but, mind you, math was never my forte.
In a nutshell, more quality links = higher page ranks. Like with many SEO techniques, Google page rank alone will not guarantee you a high ranking, but it will help, it's more than likely that pages with a lower page rank will appear above yours if they have managed to crack other areas of SEO.
Rest assured though, if you have a number of quality links to your page, it's SERP (search engine results page) ranking will improve along with its page rank, which will do you no harm at all in the SEO world.
Realistically speaking, as a small business owner you should probably be aiming for a score of around 2 or 3 once you're site is established in the Google. High scores of 7 or above to be reserved for the big players, such as Microsoft, Apple and Google themselves (the google home page gets 10)
Page Rank Inbound/Backlink Implementation
The page rank of a page depends on the number and page rank metric of all pages that link to it. A page that is linked to, by many pages with high page rank receives a high rank itself. Implementing BackLinks from other high page rank sites will determine the popularity or importance of your website and result in a higher ranking in Google.

Keys to Search Engine Ranking
Google uses dozens of factors to determine which site will rank highest for specific keywords. The primary ranking factors that we evaluate from an overall perspective are the following:
Backend Coding (what the robots see)
The structure of the website is critical to achieving search engine rankings for two reasons. First, it is important to make sure that your pages and content are being indexed (consistently crawled) by the search engine spiders. Second, the manner in which pages link together, especially the use of text links, is critical to help build relevancy for keywords. If this may be seen as being done by an engineer, the code of the website above is done by engineers.
Search engine algorithms are placing more importance than ever on the text content on the website. If a site is aiming to rank for specific keywords and phrases, it is critical that the site have readable text content that incorporate those keywords or phrases. Mentioning a targeted phrase one time in the text is not sufficient.
Google measures the popularity of your website by the amount and quality of websites that are linking to your site. If your site does not have competitive link popularity, it will not achieve top rankings for keywords. We will look at the sites that are consistently ranking for your desired keywords, and make sure that we build enough in-bound link popularity so that your site can compete for rankings.
