Could they be involved with a "bad neighborhood" in the Google domain? ;)

Wow, that's weird. PR0 shows up here in San Francisco.

A backlink search shows no links. But a search at FAST reveals many links, including pr6 links.

You don't see backlinks on sites under PR4. Google know's they are there, it just doesn't show them... (i think ;))

I mentioned in my previous post that there were PR6 sites that show up in Fast, but not in Google.

No, linking to positiontech.com is perfectly safe. They aren't in any kind of bad neighborhood at all. Sometimes people pay a little too much attention to that display on the toolbar. :)

That has to be the quote of the month. Now if you would kindly put that quote up on the Webmaster Guidelines page... ;)

Seriously, there seems to be millions of people confusing that toolbar value with PageRank. Explaining the difference to clients is time consuming.

googleguy - : do you want to say that toolbar dispalys incorrect or that we should not look too mcuh on toolbar(and they are indeed pr 0). if this is some glitch then how can we know for our sites if they are realy pr 0? are position tech 0 or not?

confusing that toolbar value with PageRank.

digitalghost, with all due respect: How do people confuse the toolbar value with PageRank?

It's probably because it the toolbar has the words "PageRank" written over the green line.

Also, the PR value of Positiontech at Google's directory [directory.google.com] also shows zero.

Positiontech has pr6 inbounds, is in the directory, and should logically have PR.

If I see what appears to be an anomaly, then I want to study it and try to reach an understanding of it. Which I think most people who are posting here are trying to do.

I don't think I can say it any better than GoogleGuy did:

>>Sometimes people pay a little too much attention to that display on the toolbar.

Sure sounds like the truth to me. :)

Many people get so wrapped in that little green bar that they neglect the important aspects of link building, content development, phrase expansion, etc. So while many people are studying toolbar anomalies I think it is just as important to point out that you can disregard that little toolbar altogether and still get sites positioned well.

I have prospective clients write to ask if I can improve their Pagerank, and what they are referring to is Google's Toolbar value. They aren't concerned with links that will convert to more sales, or links that serve the end user, all they want is a higher toolbar value. After awhile it gets old.

All in all, I suppose that toolbar makes my job easier. While more and more webmasters obsess over that toolbar, I can get better rankings and more targeted traffic to a site.
