How many sites per pagerank toolbar value? Google Desktop Tools and Google Labs Projects forum at WebmasterWorld Side tracking from Brett's value of websites according to PR. [webmasterworld.com] How about guestimates on actual numbers of sites of which the highest ranking page has a PR of: 10 - Three 9 - About seventy (see this overview of PR9 & PR10 sites) [webmasterworld.com] 8 - about 4.200 7 - about 180.000 6 - about 850.000 5 - about 2.500.000 I am also interested in ways/methods of estimating these numbers - any ideas?

The canonical page will be crawled most regularly; the duplicates are crawled less frequently in order to save crawling budget on your site. Google chooses the canonical page based on a number of factors (or signals), such as whether the page is served via http or https; the user's declared preferred domain; page quality; presence of the URL in a sitemap; and any "rel=canonical" labeling.
