    ...didn't know they had, but if they did then +1 from me

    Page rank should be (IMO) a reflection of the usefulness and relevance of the website, not how much they paid to a SEO.
    If peeps want to pay for getting on the front page of Google then thats what Google ads are for (again IMO)

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)

    There seems no change in the PR algorithms but they introduced new methods under the code name Panda and Penguin to fight with web spam.

    The only change I am aware of that they have ever made to the PR algorithm is to reduce its importance in the rest of their calculation.

    It was already the least important of over 200 factors prior to Panda so it is unlikely that its significance has changed much since.
