PR5 for home page, PageRank 0 for most internal pages
My site has been punished and I am innocent!

Hi, I discovered that google gives page rank 0 for most of my website pages specifically level three and level four of the site although the site has pagerank 5 (level 1 and level 2).

I did not do anything wrong! I think google team thought my content is spam, absolutely not, the content of those pages are written and submitted by our publishers who also submit the same content to the other websites and I looked at those websites they have not been punished!
However I contacted them but still did not receive any reply yet.

Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Regards.

Hi Zaid and welcome to WebmasterWorld!

I think you have some misconceptions as to how PR works. I suggest you read this excellent primer by Macro:-

trillianjedi thank you for your reply but I am webmaster for more than 3 years and I have good knowledge about page rank.

Those pages in the past had page rank 3 but they are zero now!

OK. Remember though, pages have PR, not sites. Also penalties which affect toolbar PR are usually effected site-wide and are not page specific.

Are those PR0 pages indexed in Google?

Toolbar PR is notoriously buggy, I wouldn't pay too much attention to it - watch the SERPS and your logfiles, not the little green bar.

See Macro's post and the sub-heading in there "Help, I've lost all PR!".

The old ones are still indexed but not the new ones!

new ones!

How new?

If the old ones are indexed, and simply showing a white bar, you have nothing to worry about.

No I mean by old ones those which have been indexed when their PR were 3, after they become 0 they still indexed, google stop indexing any other pages of those who have zero page rank!

Zaid, when did they go from PR3 to PR0, roughly?

Did those pages do well in the SERP's at one time, but not now? And, if they declined in the SERP's, when?

Are they now in the Supplemental Index?

Hi again, I discovered this is a common problem! there are many websites have such a problem, and some of these websites are very popular! PR8 for their home page and PageRank 0 for most internal pages! Anyone know what is going on?!

further proof I think that pr makes little difference
I have home page pr6 which rarely gets hits via g
i have internal pages with pr0 which have ranked number1 for a very competitive phrase for about 4 years

wouldnt worry about pr anymore - dont think g does

I think its very possible stage one of new changes in regards to duplicate filters across the board, although I cannot verify this yet.

Articles and content that is written first and placed on another higher ranking site will take precedence. Apparently from what I have heard in some circles Google may be testing a way to simulate reading and testing content from a more 'human perspective'. Is it possible your pagerank has been dropped to 0 because Google deems only those pages duplicate content? Possibly this is a new thing applied to newest updates?

same thing with my site

home page had PR 6, now dropped to 4. All other previously high ranking pages are now at PR0 and basically gone. I have done nothing wrong here. Google has a problem handling permanent redirects it seems. My old pages that had been redirected to the current pages a long time ago were never completely removed from their index, just pushed far back, so 2 urls existed that went to the same page.

It seems a duplicate content filter was definately applied, and sites punished. In my opinion, they need to handle their redirects correctly first. Im still showing up good in this DC

but its unlikely these results will spread.
