What is the difference between page rank of 0 and current page not ranked.

Thanks

Not Ranked (all grey bar) usually represents current not in Google index.

PR0 (all white bar) can mean 2 things.

1. Not enough incomings links transferring PageRank that supports a PageRank of 1 (or higher), or

2. A Google penalty - usually indicates you are doing something wrong or linking to someone doing something wrong (spam tactics).

In many, many cases #1 is usually the case.

I would guess that the vast majority of the time a gray bar is a new site one way or another.

However, sites that I know were removed for spamming last month are showing grey bars, not white. I was thinking that after the update they might go white, but at this point they are still gray.

Hi steveb - one of my sites, which was greyed out in september (putting it down to linking to a "bad neighbourhood") is still greyed out after october update too. I find it really wierd - makes you wonder if there's hope for it or not... and scratch your head thinking what to do next or to just wait things out.

Also, if white = penalty, then why gray in this particular case for two consecutive updates?

If you have never had page rank and it is grey it probably means you are not indexed.

If you have had the white and then it reverted to grey then get another domian and start again as it is hard to recover from these.

I have heard that you can try robots.txt for a couple of months then take it away and you may be included in google again

It had a PR6 and went straight to gray.

Hi nvision,

Been looking at this for you a lot of the backlinks that i tracked seemed to be on sites which where giving alot of 404's.

But I one thing I did notice was your dmoz and google diretory listings had both gone due to a the reshuffle at dmoz i think that damaged the site more then anything but they should be back next month.

Morning DaveN :)

Thanks a bunch! If that's the case then I'll grit my teeth and hunt those links down. Funny how one tends to overlook the simpler things and jump straight for the more complicated aspects....

Would that explain why G-bot's ignored it too? I'm stuck on that point.

Gracias.

Hold on though - wouldn't that reshuffle have affected all the other sites in the same dmoz cat? they're still in google.
