I've got a site that did have a PR4 across the sites pages. Today the PR dropped to 0! Any ideas why it would do this?

Thanks guys

Same here... PR dropped to zero in the last few days.

Some will tell you that we are being penalized, but as far as i know my site is clean, so i'm hoping it's just a fluke and will change with the next update.

Given all the tweaking that Google has been doing lately, i think this is quite possible.

What do you mean 'no back links'? Nobody links to your site?

If the site has no inbound links the pr4 would have been an estimated pr.

I didn't think the toolbar estimated pr any more

Aren't penalties reflected by a gray bar?
