Homepage rank 8, interior pages 0
Why isn't Google transferring my Homepage rank to the interior pages?

I just launched a new Website for a client. The new Homepage retained the same URL (The old Homepage had a pagerank of 7). The interior pages have different file names and there are redirects from the old pages where this makes sense.

The new site has now been indexed, and the Homepage now has a page rank of 8. However the interior pages have a page rank of zero - so they don't come up well at all in terms of search term rankings. However, I do know that they have been indexed.

Many of the interior pages have text links on the Homepage. The links work fine - so I would assume that the interior pages would "borrow" page ranking from the Homepage. There is also a sitemap on all of the pages including the Homepage.

Is the zero interior page rank due to:

a)not enough time for Google to appropriately spider the site?
b)redirects somehow polluting the spidering effort?
c)any other ideas?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, esfusion.

>>just launched a new Website

That's exactly it. The homepage URL being the same with existing inbound links, it's expected that would be reflected, but for the brand new pages you have to give it a couple of months for proper spidering and for showing toolbar PR.

That is a great idea, get a second opinion makes the answer more relevant, works just like the google algorism.

Second opinion:

Yes, exactly, no doubt about it.

I have a site that was dropped/penalised/whatever by Google back in January. It started coming back about a week or two ago and now just about all of the pages are being indexed. The original PR5 has also returned to the home page but my other pages show PR0 and I am getting no traffic.

Is this the same problem, even though my site had previously been fully indexed and ranked?

Yes, it's most likely the same problem!

Give it time...

Thanks CCowboy. (Still no PR on anything other than my home page.)

There may be PR already being attributed for the interior pages - but it may just not be showing on the toolbar yet.

That Google toolbar is so much of a source of stress and neurotic anxiety for us webmasters that there just might have to be a special definition in psychiatry established one of these days, just for us webmasters who watch our PR.

It would probably be classified as an obsessive/compulsive disorder, and they'd be right! ;)

Give it time, it'll show up.

Thanks for the reassurance Marcia. My problem is that my main site collapsed in November and things have gone from bad to worse since then. When I saw it coming back a couple of weeks ago I thought traffic would return and that I would be able to sign off social security. Looks like I'll have to wait a bit longer :o<

I have a Query on Page Rank
its like i have a page thats Pr 5 with URl

example.com/product.asp?pid=2

now i have made a new one page for new products

example.com/product.asp?pid=3

This new page has PR 5, and is also indexed by google just two days back, but still it is not showing up in results on google search?
Any idea if the page has been ranked at PR 5 or its just some error
regards
