Hi Marcia thanks for the reply,
>>There may be PR, it may just be that we're not seeing it with the toolbar. <<
Now you are ringing little bells there .. there is a lag between googles internal PR (the real deal) and what we are shown on the toolbar .. i forgot about this... but ... Does this mean all my sites are soon to be PR4? eg loosing all internal backlinks means front page =< PR5? They are all PR6 atm.
Has anyone else been loosing Backlinks like this?
(bites his nails and waits for yet another traumatic google PR update)

Backword links from 0 PR pages are counted by Google. As mentioned by Marcia, these pages generally have PR more than 0 but not one. There is no hard an fast rule(atleast i can't figure out) for a link to be shown as backward link by Google. Google keep slashing backward links during every update. Why, no body knows.

So what you are saying is .. what google tells us using its own toolbar is not worth looking at? Ok .. well .. I guess there is a lot of stress I can loose if i dont bother using the toolbar I will give it a go (removes toolbar)
Ahhh .. you know .. feel much better :) thanks

Hmm things have changed then .. there was a point i remember when backlinks in google showed up as PR4 and above only .. maybe a few PR3 ... I wonder if they have changed it ... www.alltheweb.com link:http://www.myurl.com seems to be the only way of finding out what is really happening I guess PR or no PR.
