Google still uses PageRank in ranking
Since the launch of PageRank has been more than 18 years, but Google still uses the algorithm in their ranking. This was stated by the representative of the search Gary Illyes on Twitter.
DYK that after 18 years we're still using PageRank (and 100s of other signals) in ranking?
Wanna know how it works?

In April of last year, Google has disabled the display of PageRank toolbar values in browsers and online tools. It was calculated on a scale from 0 to 10 and gave a General idea about the quality of the page.
In August of the same year Gary Illyes said that despite disabling toolbar PR, real PageRank is still use by search engines.
