Pagerank has updated on -cw
and new backlinks too

 6:58 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

Yahoo at 857,000



 9:02 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

my links are not showing for dmoz or yahoo and we are listed in both, anyone know why?



 9:04 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

In some of the internal DMOZ-cats the PR has decreased, too. Probably that´s the reason for some devaluations across some other sites.

I don´t see changes for any of our projects. A pretty new site (about 2 months old) with some incoming PR6 links still shows a toolbar-PR of 0.


 9:16 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

yes, I got new pagerank, it seems to have been redistributed within the site - there are winning and loosing pages


 9:27 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

My link count increased.


 9:41 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

Yes wow, I have waited & waited & waited, put my site up end of April 03 and ever since its been showing PR0, then came the backlinks update only last month which seemed an eternity and now as of today showing PR4 but no increase in backlinks.

Maybe we need to wait a day or 2 for the changes to settle down and to see how this affects the SERPS if any!

I think like most have noted, the Google Directory has still not been updated even though they are showing my DMOZ description & the ODP is showing up in my backlinks.

SO come on Google don't stop now Christmas is coming and lets have it all working like before with Good SERPS, PR & Backlinks being updated more frequently, daily or weekly would be very good and a big step forward in providing the fresh data where sites are ranked correctly at last.


 10:07 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

I've seen strange changes.

One of my sites which I thought would go up in pagerank, went from 4 to 3, which another one which I thought had been penalised / banned (as it's been sitting on pr0 for ages), jumped from 0 to 4.

Most of my clients who don't have page rank yet, now have pr's of between 2 and 4.

But no charge in the SERP's.

Update Humpty Dumpty might be more succinct.

The Google Engine sat on a wall,
But Google Engine had a great fall;
And all of the workers, the technical men
Denied it was broken but fixed it again.


 10:19 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

hmm, can't see any change in backlinks but they seemed to be updated three or four weeks ago. Got new PR on my site today though (7!) and have seen changes on several other sites that I monitor regularly.

Is there a favoured datacentre for checking new backlinks, anyone?



 10:24 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

My SERP and PR (5) is same but my backlinks dropped from 78 to 33. Mostly links from internal pages, I guess.


 10:26 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

Still PR0 here. Backlinks for my "benchmark" page went to 0 on www-sj, www2, www3 but still visible on www-ex (though outdated). Hope this is just work in progress.


 10:32 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

PR Updated,
incoming links # upadated,
SERP are upadated also.
for all my sites.


 10:39 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

Interesting scenario...

Old PR was 4 on index

On .51 it's increased to 5.

On some others it's showing three - which was as it was before last update.

I don't think this is over yet? I know where I'm hoping it settles!

Oh, the agony of waiting....



 10:47 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

A site I was hoping would go up went from 6 to 4 :(

Rankings have remained the same though. Guess I will just have to start ignoring that green bar.



 10:54 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

No matter how many links I get Google seems to be able to reduce them.

It could be just the internal links that have gone, as even though my links seemed to be vanashing I am still in the same top positions so all is well for now.

At the beginning of this year I and many mentioned that one day it would be possible for Google to update virtually daily or every two weeks, without having the dance.

Looks like its here now :)


 10:57 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)


I think that is obsolutely the correct decision.

PR is not that important any more - I see lots of PR4 + 5 sites ranking very nicely for majorly competitive SERPS.

Watch the SERPS - not backlinks - not PR - it is the SERPS that delivery the traffic and the ££'s or $$'s depending on which side of the pond you are.

There is no exclusivity with PR these days - all you gotta do is go out and buy a few links if you want high PR - I think this is Googles response!

Anyone care to agree or disagree


 11:01 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

YES! :) My first 3 PR points ever earned! Nice surprise on Friday morning right before the long weekend :) Woo-hoo!


 11:01 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

Well across the river where we earn € things look more stable then the where a few months back.

Not sure what direction to concentrate on at the moment, backlinks seem to be less of an issue more anchor text it required these days.

I just build web sites these days, and try to put as much content as possible instead of over doing the SEO.


 11:02 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

Looking around they seem to have done a much better job with backlinks. Only found one obvious error, and there is a reasonable explaination for that one. Haven't rooted around the Google Directory backlinks yet which always is a good place to check stuff. <insert standard update the darn directory screed>

Interesting about no changes in the serps. Last time a bunch of fresh spamola was dumped in when the backlinks updated, but doesn't seem to be the case now. Have to see what happens the next 24 hours.


 11:02 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

Oh my god, what a boost of backlinks.

And PR has been updated too. But no changes in the rankings for my keywords. Okay my rankings were prety good before today so there is no cause to scream :-)

And waht I have experienced is, that there no more guestbook spammers in the Top results.
In fact there are a few, but there beacklinks have decreased dramatically. So it seems as if Google is simply ignoring guestbooks now.

From the point I see it now a very good update in backlinks and PR. Rankings are still the same as before. Do you think SERPS will move a little bit?


 11:25 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

Strange: PR = up but # of backlinks = down

As in: showing fewer links. Yahoo's number is also down so
shouldn't mean much. No change in serps.

Hello from Germany,

almost all my sites went from PR 3 to PR 5 today :-)
Much more backlinks than yesterday.

Have a nice week-end,


 11:46 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

Moltar - Congradulations. =)



 11:48 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

Here is google logic:

I put up one site, for fun - 15 pages - every page on the site a PR3. Took three days to build.

I put up another site, seriously - 60 pages - home page PR3 rest PR2. Took three months to build.

Frusterated yet? Nah.



 11:49 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

ya convinced me to go take a look. index scooched up from pr4 back to the pr5 it used to be before things started getting all hinkystinky over the summer.
Some new (w/in last month) internal pages now show a wee
bit o' green instead of the pr bar still imitating snowwhite.

But the really good news is, I just saved a bundle on my car insurance 8^)



 11:49 am on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

One of ours unexpectedly changed from a 5 to a 6 about 2 weeks ago...


 12:19 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

Well spotted SEOPTI. There have been some ranking changes to do with the new backlinks, but I would never thought of a PR update so soon after Fritz.

The fresher new Google seems to have a fresher new Toolbar PR as well.


 12:23 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

my pr didn't update but my links increased by about 200 last week to around 500, which is the highest they've been in google, yet my pr is that lowest it's been (at 5 now from 7 a few months ago!?).

I'm noticing today that most pages that link to me are gray barred, which is very strange because they are all largely old pages on .edu, and .gov sites.

Anyone have a clue what's going on here?


 12:37 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

Hi all, I reached pr5 today! :)


 12:49 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

I had a new site added around April that was a PR0 until last month when it moved to a PR4, and the traffic really jumped. A few weeks ago, the traffic on the site halved, and it now shows a PR0.

Any ideas as to what is happening?


 12:54 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

I just got my first PR - my new 6 week old site has just got pr4 :)


 12:59 pm on Aug 29, 2003 (gmt 0)

There was a wide spread concern about amazon etal occupying the top spots for queries like basic underwear. Would you try that SERP now?
