WWW::Google::PageRank is a class implementing a interface for querying google pagerank.
To use it, you should create
WWW::Google::PageRank object and use its method get(), to query page rank of URL.
LWP::UserAgent for making request to Google.
This method constructs a new
WWW::Google::PageRank object and returns it. Key/value pair arguments may be provided to set up the initial state. The following options correspond to attribute methods described below:
KEY DEFAULT ----------- -------------------- agent "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; GoogleToolbar 2.0.111-big; Windows XP 5.1)" proxy undef timeout undef env_proxy undef host "toolbarqueries.google.com"

HTTP::Response object (returned by
LWP::UserAgent::get). This can be usefull for debugging purposes and for querying failure details.
