Where's the PR?
Why do most pages have PR0?

I have a relatively new small (20 page) site for which I'm slowley building a few links. The latest PR update yielded 4/10 for the homepage. The remianing pages are all well crosslinked with SE friendly menus (though they do use small querystrings)and a site map. All sub pages are 0/10, with the exception of one almost orphaned page that built a month ago to replace an existing page, then I reverted back to the exiting page. One or two links were left to the replacement page (hence semi-orphaned) and it shows PR 3/10.

Is the PR 0/10 neccessarily a penalty? I did have an episode where I got heavy with locality keywords and my pages dissappeared in the SERPS. I backed that out and re-appeared in about a week (that was part of the creation of the page mentioned previously). All pages perform relatively well for the local niche they're targeting.

Be patient. You will gain PR on the pages after the next update (or next next update).

New pages always show 0/10 or gray bar.

Gray bar = not in index
0/10 = in index with PR lower than 1 or new page.

So don't worry.
