Google Toolbar is a handy tool, especially when it comes to seeing the Page Rank (PR) of websites. At some point, you will want to trade links with people – the more that link to you, the better.

Google will respect the fact that websites with good PR are linking to you, and will improve your rankings in the search listings.
