Sadly, there seems to be very little change in the situation with the Sandbox.

A webpage I added to our site less than a week ago now has PR 5.

Surely this at least suggests that actual PR calculations are being done on a near daily basis. Of course it could just mean that PR calculations were done just a couple of days ago as a one-off for this update. I think the former is more likely though...

Thats good if you were having Pr5 within short span of time

I was just wondering i was having 7-9 backlinks and having PR 5 today how much backlinks it would be required to get further up

I have heard the scale is logrithmic type...more you go ahead more tougher it is to get the next PR....what are your views in this

Is there any scale like on
50 you have PR 6
on 100 PR 7 or what ever

assuming all backlinks have PR above me

[directory.google.com...] drops to PR8, which should have a domino effect across the Internet for quality sites.

I am seeing a systematic drop (down one) for most of my sites...especially the ones in DMOZ. Steve's observation is the likely cause of that.

OTOH, a network of sites that has sitewide links from a large free hosting provider are up from 0 to 6. With the usual high CPC, adsense loaded kind of content.

steveb - looks like that is will be the answer for many. What I don't understand is I can see some serp changes and no-one has talked about it (not that we need a long thread). I'm talking major changes in a couple niche areas that are pretty competitive.
Well that's it for me in this thread ;)

Thanks steveb, that explains why most of our pages dropped 1. Our main ones are down to PR5... so it goes. The serps look the same.

A companion of course to the Google Directory drop is many internal dmoz.org pages have dropped a point, although the main page stayed the same, since the directories interlink from all pages.

For windows, add this line to your hosts file:
66.102.11.99 toolbarqueries.google.com

The hosts file should be in Windows>System32>Drivers>Etc for XP. Or do a search of your system

I'm still a novice, but not a newbie. That's the first time I've heard this one, and it works great!

Thanks!

SERPS are no different - so who cares about Pagerank?

Serp's look the same to me - PR and backlink changes have occured but with no effect so far...

steveb

The serps certainly are different, and the only people who don't care about pagerank don't understand it, or who prefer blundering around in the dark rather than learning to find their way efficiently.

The changes reflected in the toolbar display explain several changes over the past few weeks.

OR...whose rankings remain pretty much stable month-in, month out, without running around with their heads cut off trying to respond to every minor change ;-)

Our PR 5 just jumped 12 spots above a PR7...isn't life grand....

"whose rankings remain pretty much stable month-in, month out without running around with their heads cut off trying to respond to every minor change"

Too bad for you. Choosing to not understand why you rank how you do is your choice, but it leads to stagnation. No post here is running around like a chicken with their head cut off, but we do have some with chicken's burying their heads in the ground because they don't want to understand what is effecting the entire Internet (minor or not).

Get your head out of the sand, and especially your head out of your own rankings, and you'll do better in this business.

Yahoo goes to PR10 and the Yahoo Directory to PR9.

seeing updates on 3 data centers now-
66.102.11.99
66.102.11.104
66.102.9.104
Cutoff date must have been about the 30th as pages added before that are getting PR, pages after are not

Hi,

My new site is PR7 straight in on 3 datacenters, what's the chances of it being PR7 once Google's done it's dance? I'm kinda hoping it's going to be an even happier New Year than it already is. Good ole' Google dance speculation, ah, the good old days :)

Cheers,

Jeremy

Well I'll be darned, guess I'll just have to hold those celebrations a couple more days. Ho hum, back down to earth again, at least for the time being :)

Thx :)

P.S. Aha, it's a redirect, and we all know the troubles they're having these days. Hovering now...

Hi,

I have changed my hosts file but cant see any difference in my PR , the google directory is also showing as PR9 . Somebody mentioned this had dropped to 8.

This leads me to conclude that I cant see the new data from Spain, or it has reverted to its old set?

David
.99 and .104 show the same thing for me.

irishaff, if you're using Firefox, try clearing the cache and restarting it... that might do it.

<added>that is, if you're using the PR extension</added>

Right,

with the .99 I also see a PR9 on the directory.google.com ...

Hmmm... I've got the directory at PR9 too. Still seeing PR changes on other pages using 66.102.11.99

My six-month old site went from PR2 to PR3 on a couple of datacenters.

With the number of incoming links I have, I was hoping for more of a bump.

I sure hope this isn't the end of it.

I cant find any PR changes on any sites I monitor. Also pages added in November still have PR0, i would expect these to have taken PR as they are root level pages and have been in the index since addition.

Its petty I know , as I guess the PR will propogate across all the DCs anyway. So PR is not the only factor in the mix for ranking , but IMHO it is an important one.

Yes, this is mainly something visual. There is relatively no change in the serps. Probably the main this will affect is people who buy and sell links.
