Google has already informed about the importance of PageRank in their article - Google removes pagerank from webmaster tools. Google considers more than 200 factors when it comes to the ranking of the website, and as such considering the pagerank in order to check the matrices of the website is not correct. In fact to check the website matrix, Google recommends the use of its web analytics tool - Google Analytics
