You may have noticed that no one refers to specific ways of viewing the PageRank update. This is because this forum does not allow the naming of names nor the posting of addresses for such devices.
It is easy to figure this out for yourself. Just Google it. A query like Data Center Page Rank or Future Page Rank should do it.
Another option is to visit one of the many SEO forums where members can be more specific.

Yes its gone now. It was on the datacenters mentioned earlier in the thread.
Maybe they need to fix how it was crewed up as also mentioned above. Or maybe they'll roll it out again in a few minutes.....

Very strange .... it is definitely gone now. The sites I saw it on were brand new sites too - so it wasn't old data that crept back on some dc's as can happen from time to time.
I checked the dc's this time ;)

Well it was certainly there seoArt. Thanks for the heads up! Now hopefully it will roll out again over the weekend.
4th of July weekend. Google always seems to update during major holidays.
And for those that don't know how to change your toolbar PR datacenter do as follows:
Find your hosts file usually located at WINNT>SYSTEM32>DRIVERS>ETC and based on earlier information put the following in.
Or you can use one of the following (based on earlier IP reports) in place of the above.
Save your hosts file and either reboot or go to a command prompt and type ipconfig /flushdns.
Hope this helps!

and on a mac?:)
| 9:22 pm on Jun 30, 2006 (gmt 0)|
For a MAC or linux
Add one of these entries to the Hosts file:
toolbarqueries.google.com A 188.8.131.52
toolbarqueries.google.com A 184.108.40.206
toolbarqueries.google.com A 220.127.116.11
For linux just drop the "A" record

I'm not sure if I remember correctly, but didn't Matt Cutts say there would be a Pagerank update after Big Daddy was complete. Does anyone else remember him saying something along these lines?
| 12:40 am on Jul 1, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Big Daddy was completed back in March and, yes, there was a PR update after that. Good thought though.

Oh yes, you're right Komodo. My question looks positively foolish now. [blush]
| 2:28 am on Jul 1, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Hopefully the PR on my new sites will be better when it rolls out too!

>>>>Oh yes, you're right Komodo. My question looks positively foolish now.
Yes, but the update in March was not a proper update as it did not update the PR of existing pages - just new pages.
| 8:53 pm on Jul 1, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Yesterday my pages were all PR5. Today they're all PR0. Still getting all the traffic, more even. Still ranking #1 for all my phrases. My other sites have about the same PR they did before. It's just this one. Weird.

--- Yes, but the update in March was not a proper update as it did not update the PR of existing pages - just new pages.
And those new pages were given a ridiculously high PR. Which is probably why google will take their time on this update... It seems BD uses a different methodology for computing PR, and, like many other BD things, it seems to be buggy.

Yeah, that PR was really a lot higher than I expected. Many sites didn't seem to change, but some sites shot up a lot higher than they should have. I am hoping that this is a true, full PR update coming. Not that PR matters. ;)

any new observation? or the so called update just vanished. I never saw it here in India, but believe that somwthing must have happend as was endorsed by people like Dayo
| 3:53 pm on Jul 3, 2006 (gmt 0)|
I have been watching a site I put up in March with articles added almost every day since its launch. Still not showing any PR on the 10 datacenters I am watching.
| 6:04 pm on Jul 3, 2006 (gmt 0)|
I just now saw digg.com showing a PR0 on several DCs. I think Google is playing around with the knobs again today.
| 9:34 pm on Jul 3, 2006 (gmt 0)|
It looks like dmoz is showing blank PR again...

Try DMOZ without a www in the URL.
| 3:29 am on Jul 8, 2006 (gmt 0)|
My site has been stuck at PR four for three years, today i looked and it's at PR0. Google has actually started to return pages to the index that have been supplemental since March though and my traffic is going up from it's dismal low. Is this some kind of penalty unfolding or just more gremlins in Google's system?
| 7:27 pm on Jul 13, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Iím seeing those June 29th rank changes again; Iíve checked it with 2 different browsers and refreshed each twice. Iím using the default datacenter settings in the toolbar.
| 9:14 pm on Jul 13, 2006 (gmt 0)|
I'm seeing them as well on :
| 9:16 pm on Jul 13, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Yes, there's definitely an update happening. It's also on:
Good news for me too!
| 9:39 pm on Jul 13, 2006 (gmt 0)|
I am seeing a backlink update on those data centers as well.
| 9:45 pm on Jul 13, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Some internal backlinks are finally showing up. I am hoping the hell we have been in for over a year is getting close to being over.
| 10:22 pm on Jul 13, 2006 (gmt 0)|
This is based on fairly old data, I don't have enough info to trace it back but the snapshot is over a month old (I don't know how that compares with other updates, I'm not one for watching too closely).
| 10:29 pm on Jul 13, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Number of backlinks seem to have gone down 75%! Does this mean that PR will be reduced also?
Site is white hat.
| 10:41 pm on Jul 13, 2006 (gmt 0)|
I don't think it's accurate data yet. I'm seeing backlinks cut in half, but PR increasing across the board.
| 10:47 pm on Jul 13, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Thanks spander! was thinking it was me only. I've been working reeeeeally hard on my site. would be terribly discouraged if there was no overall improvement!
oK.. this is nuts... a new blog I started 4 months ago is up to PR4 from PR0. My main site is stuck at PR2. This cannot be correct! I've hardly done anything significant on my blog for it to be worthy of PR4!
| 10:58 pm on Jul 13, 2006 (gmt 0)|
The new PR is spreading blazing fast :-O
