Its not important for the ranking itself.
But it still makes link-exchange easier if you have a few websites which have a high pagerank and can provide backlinks to linkpartners.
And when Google did not make a pagerank update for 8? months last year, every SEO said, the pagerank is dead.. and suddennly the next update came.
PageRank is important and will probably remain so as a factor considered by Google to tell how strong link popularity scores of domains and websites are online but there is one small technical point to name over here and that is not higher PR values would necessarily result in having improved organic web ranks on Google because PR as mentioned is just one item calculated by Google to tell how reliable the incoming links gained are.
You can find thousands of low PR websites outperforming their high PageRank competitors because of better links they have gained in the course of time. It is possible to get high quality one way links, from blogs and directories, with PR values of very low but their impacts on ranking improvements would be very strong. Of course it would be recommended to increase PR and at the same time improving overall ranks of sites.
It is important for people who cares about Google's appraisal for their websites. If anyone wants to rank high and to get more traffic from Google, it is a good idea to achieve better page rank.

I think PR has no worth now and it does not add anything in SERP of a website. I am having a blog that is only pr2 but getting a lot of traffic and I can't under stand after getting so many powerful backlinks why Google is not agree to give it pr3 or pr4.
So, now I have forgotten to think about PR increment and started to build backlinks. So, try to concentrate on ONPAGE and OFFPAGE seo and forget PR.

PageRank is just one of more than a hundred variables in a very complex Google algorithm.
PageRank is important, but more important is always a good and unique content with a lot of natural backlinks. If you create an interesting content and promote it effectively you will get backlinks and improve your ranking, and ranking is always more important than PageRank that is just a number on a toolbar.
yes PR is very important, but today i saw a video from Google company they said they Google update their pr in year 3 times, like after 3 month they update their PR. no idea about this but still PR is most important every SEOs work for only PR
Its only important if you are looking to sell or exchange links. Otherwise its not important. I have a pr3 site that ranks better than a pr 5 site that I also own. So as far as search engine rankings go it doesn't matter much.
