something strange happen to my website after the cache server is up...my PR jumped from 0 to 7! and the site is only 3 weeks old..have't done any link building or optimization yet! Can someone else confirm this? I think there is an error on PR info too...something is messed up!

I'm on the west coast. MSN is PR1. Apple Computer PR1. I think something may be screwed up. Also many PR 7 site are PR1. I've checked some other sites and they still are retaining their original PR5 etc...

Everything I look at is grey bar. No page rank. I suspect that it may not be a mistake. The end of public page rank may be here. Hmm, buy links to increase page rank but no visible acknowlegement that it really helps, just speculation.

My adsense stats went nuts between 8:30 and 11:30 eastern time US. Against the totals for the day up to 8:30, pageviews added 23%, clicks nearly tripled, CTR doubled, eCPM doubled, earnings more than doubled.

I also got a ton of spam during that period. G's been moving stuff around for a week now.

If anyone cares to check this, if you're an adsense publisher, see how your earnings on May 24 compare to the 22nd, 23rd, 25th and 26th. For me, May 24 is more like the rest of the month while the other four dates registered the 4 lowest earnings days for May.

Other people have mentioned SERPs improving for a while on the 24th, then going away again.

Good luck to all.

Just a temporary glitch I think.

Just say though this was the end of PR how would one determine who is a good neighbour or bad? It would be Russian Roulette when and linking out to other domains.

Now while doing link building, one will need following specs in mind:

1. Date of cache of site's home page
2. Date of cache of link's page (where your link is or will be placed)
3. Number of backward links in google, msn, yahoo.
4. C Class ip
5. Number of pages listed in google.

All and all it will become a little more cumbersome job.

You've lost me, some people seem to be talking about two different errors (the original thread topic). This one:

The server encountered an error and could not complete your request. If the problem persists, please mail google@google.com and mention this error message and the query that caused it.

I've seen intermittenly on Google for the past year here in the UK. I figured it was just server load and with the recent problems with people hacking Google larger load problems will become more common-place.

As for PageRank - I think we should have a distinction in this thread because I'm getting lost there too. Some are screaming the "end of PR" (well, wishing for it anyway) but are we talking about the removal of PageRank from the Google algorithm or simply the loss of a little green indication bar?

... how would one determine who is a good neighbour or bad? It would be Russian Roulette when and linking out to other domains.

I wasn't aware that this (the linking-to-bad-neighbourhood-theory) was still a concept held by webmasters? Are there others who think this currently affects ranking?

Dear internetheaven,

Generally speaking PR can be used in order to measure whether a site/page is considered authoritative from Google's perspective.

I also think that a bad-neighbourhood site can be very easily found by a simple visit. Bad neighbourhood sites are very dangerous indeed if you link to them heavily (i.e. one link could not harm but 7 out of 10 outbound links could cause you troubles).

LOL, please define Google algorithm.

By how it looks right now, there is no longer any "Google algorithm" running and most of google services are down or in betta.

This page with the big "GOOGLE" words at the middle is merely a shadow of what google used to be . This is no longer the mother of SEs, the innovative artificial intelligence many of us respected and worshiped.

What we are seeing nowadays is a broken overly patched piece of code, deviated miles away from that good old code the founders invented and shared with the world. What we are seeing nowadays is a no sense piece of crap, a mare hit and miss attempt by some new kiddos at the plex, having nothing better to do then to warm their chairs and try and justify their over inflated salary packages.

And the founders, they are out and about, busy with increasing their real estate portfolios.

Stop analysing and optimizing your sites for this piece of crap. Get it into your heads....GOOGLE is broken. Nothing to do with your pages or SEO efforts, and everything to do with a bug riddled algo mechanism, which is patched to the point were no one realy know (google included) how it works anymore..

It is just a matter of time now before this thing once called google becomes history.

God help us all.

Wish I was. No I am working for myself. A crippled broken google is very bad for my business. I am really sad it is in the shape it is those days.

I believe they squashed the green bar out of embaressement of the PR5 site beating Google's PR9 page for the keyword adsense. It proved the PR had nothing to do with rankings. All you PR text link sellers, start thinking of new marketing strategies...
