A few of my sites have jumped in page rank a couple of notches. Will this cause an impending update? :>~

One interesting observation:

I have a small local directory site with a home page PR of 2.

The main categories (which only contain subcategories and no external links) have PR1. The Subcategories that have many external links all have PR2, yet these pages only have 1 incoming link from a PR1 page.

How can a single link from a PR1 page result in PR2?

thanks,
the point is not to have a PR5+
the point is to be BBC recomented.

it seems its reputation is stll alive, since bluefind is being discussed with DMOZ

One would also tend to discuss M$ OS with open source Linux, but in different light.

art: it always depends on where the site was before. We have a five year old site with a lot of unique, self written content. The page lost 75% of PIs during allegra. And most inner pages lost their pagerank.

Normally I don't care about PR. But I'm happy to see my site alive and to see something going on at google.

Interesting: Some of the subcategories on my site went up to PR 5 - same level as my main entry site.

I have no idea what bluefind.com is and I suspect you're advertising your own site in which case your reference will be removed instantly but the site looks rubbish and also seems to be banned from google too.

Unfortunately, some of us (if not quite few!) know very good what bluefind is, as we paid 'em money for inclusion.

To me personally, more than my own sites PR (which is quite predictable, coz those are mine and I kinda know what to expect!) is important whats the new PR of pages where I submitted and most importantly paid for inclusion!

Glad to see Google update. Roughly how long does an update take? Is it pretty much all done, or do you think it will take more time to finish updating?

I have never heard of Bluefind either.

However, why would it get banned - cant see anything against the Google TOS

Or is it because of a duplicate homepage regarding non-www?

Amerise,
this is a PR update only. I hope a regular Google update will follow soon.

Using the toolbar at this early stage, checking a few big sites, I'm seeing a huge difference between the PageRank of Yahoo and MSN and between Slashdot and its subdomains.

Sonofagun! Thanks for the heads-up people. I just checked,
and my main entry (index) page is back to toolbar PR=6
after months and months at PR=5.

My pages validate, I ditched the tacky hit counter and the cotton is high.
Will celebrate with some nice fancy beers tomorrow. Forgive any typos -Larry

taking a look into my logs I can see an active Googlebot. It is scanning mainly inner pages (articles), no lists.

Maybe there is some relation to the pagerank update since those inner pages just gained pr.

Googlebot is coming every few minutes eating around 20 pages.

There's a backlink update in progress as well (which usually happens more regularly than (TB)PR updates and independantly of them).

In addition, there are quite a few changes in the SERPs (I've seen a few spam sites get booted so far today, as well as a few others being downgraded, presumably due to PR loss / backlink loss).

Usually, I avoid participating in happiness and sorrow threads ;), but I can't resist! I just see how a few DMOZ links may boost PR and now I understand why some my pages were so high lately.

It looks like the Google dir also updated. One site went down to PR 6 in the toolbar and up to PR8 in the dir. What to make of that?

My homepage went to a PR4, my content subpage is a PR5, how can this be?

No one links to the content page, very very new.

Rollo,

Seeing too, my site appears to be a PR6 in directory but the toolbar is still showing 5.

What to think?

Yeah, this has been happening since the last PR update.

Not sure what it means. My sites which had this problem last update are now fixed (i.e. homepage PR > subcats PR) but new sites which have had their PR update are showing subcats PR > homepage PR

mmm... strange indeed

And have you noticed, that this PageRank is already out of date? It's at least 1-2 months old. The pages I have added recently, linked from the front, show no PR or PR0, all other show good PR.

And I have many cases with deep pages having higher PR than the front page - I have heavy linking from all pages to the main index, but also I have many outbounds to deep pages, so I'm not surprised.

Google back link and toolbar PR updated ..lots of changes at that green bar but not much movements on the SERP for my industry. anyone seeing these?

no new serps for me. Except my index page which found it's way back from the low forties to #2 within the last two weeks. I think it has nothing to do with an update. I think it came back because I solved some dup content issues.

Just a quick question concerning the pr update and SERP. Am I wrong in assuming that the updates in SERP related to your pr change already would have occured probable in the past 3 months since PR is actually updated on a constant basis.

Isn't the PR update simply google publishing numbers that already were in effect?

My site is so new i'm sure I'll wait this one out. :(

Stand corrected... PR0 to PR2 all of my pages.

Most of my recip links can't be more than 2 weeks old.

one site jumped from pr3->pr4
other one jumped from pr0-> pr3
other one also jumped from pr0->pr3
last site stayed stable at pr3

I'm pretty happy

are you guys seeing all these PR updates on the www.google.com or at the data centers? I monitor about 20 sites and did not see any pr update on google

Oooooh yeah. Finally, after 5 months, PR0->PR5 on my home page and several internal pages, and PR4 on many others.

In total, I have had 3 sites PR0->PR5, and a bunch of internal pages PR0->PR3/4

I almost thought I was being penalized. I am a very relieved man. Now I just have to start ranking!

did an aggressive back link campaign for last two month. now

site #1: home page pr4->pr2, one category page pr0->pr4, how come this happen?

site #2: home page pr3->pr1, inner pages pr0-pr3.

site #3: home page pr5->pr6.

showed more back links for every site.

This latest update further proves that pagerank is useless. Two new PR7s on this update and the traffic from G hasn't budget. Awesome. I miss the old days when PR actually meant something.

I agree with you, rookiecrd1
I reckon any benefits etc from this update will have already happened - G are just now starting to show on the toolbar what they have been ranking sites on for a while.
Whatever new PR we might now see on the toolbar won't affect positions in SERPS because our new positions were decided some time ago, they've just been working on different PR to that shown on toolbar - till now.

This is a long awaited update - 5 1/2 months of cleaning up a spam-ridden site has finally paid off.

PR0 - PR5

Lots of great learning from this one.
