PageRank (or PR in short) is a mathematical algorithm that evaluates the quality and quantity of links to a webpage. ... Thus, each link from one page to another counts as a so-called vote, and the weight of this score depends on the scores of the pages that link to it.

This evaluation helps it to determine a relative score of the page's importance and authority.
