Google Pagerank Goodbye!

Wondering if Google PageRank is not visible anymore? Was it cancelled by Google for the public view? If yes, than how SEO people will measure the website success?

PageRank still will be used by Google as one of algorithms but will not be visible in plugins and its data will not be available to the public. But we know about importance of good links to your websites. Web masters have some other tools to keep track of websites health. So it is more difficult to compare your website with competitors. Ask you SEO specialist if he knows how to bring your website on the top of Google search engine and compare with other even without help of Google PageRank.
