Does anyone else see the toolbar greyed out for all sites? I'm not getting anything.

For a couple days now I have not been able to see any pagerank values using the pagerankstatus plugin for mozilla. Not just for my site - I don't see it for any sites at all.

Just now I tried it with Search Status 1.6 for Mozilla, which also shows Alexa rank. It shows the alexa rank but not the pagerank.

This is the case on two different computers which share an IP masquerading connection to my ISP.

I thought maybe Google's pagerank server was down, but I've tried a pagerank tool I found at some website and it shows the same pagerank for my pages as I had seen with my moz plugin before it stopped working.

Is this a problem with both my plugins, or is Google just not responding to requests from my place on the net (in Canada), or some other problem?

I just sat down tonight to do a bunch of website work and find this really inconvenient.

Thanks!

By the way, this is my first post. I've been lurking for a while but only registered just now.

It turned out it was a problem with my networking. I rebooted my internet gateway and I was able to see pageranks again, with both my plugins.

I've had some problems with the gateway before. It is an old Mac running PowerPC linux. The powerpc version of the linux kernel is not as debugged as the pentium version. The other problem I see sometimes is that it locks up with no activity on the system but routing network traffic.

Is it just me, or is it a common thing? On every site I visit, the Google Toolbar tells me there's no Pagerank-data available. Are the Google-guys really gonna keep it secret?

Thanks

I don't know what is happening, but with the May 16 update I went from 18 to 51 links AND the toolbar on my homepage went grey AND we lost all of our serps.

Toolbar rank on all other pages remained unchanged.

I cannot understand why this happened as I am careful to follow Google's guidelines, choose only relavent links, and am careful to stay away from funky SEO advice.

I sent an email to Google and am hoping to hear back, but so far I've received no word.

If I have done something worth penalizing I wish Google would let me know because I would change it
immediately.

I'm sure whatever the reason for this gray PR period it will be for the the best!

Assume for the sake of discussion that the toolbar pr meter is going away permanently, as some have speculated. How will this affect your link acquisition and other SERP activities, if at all?

No toolbar in Nagpur either. Why should we be the exception! Hope to see rainbow at the end of the tunnel! Did somone say, re-install the toolbar and PR is back? is it?

Laugh...I was just about to put a bid in for a high PR site, saw that it was zero and I cut and ran.
I suppose I'll have to reconsider it now but perhaps I'll wait a few days. It will play havoc with domain and site brokers.

I don't have it here but I'm kinda wishy-washy on the whole good riddance thing.

If it's gone, great! One less spamming tool, one less thing for people (customers) to whine about, and one less headache.

But, what can quickly and easily be used to tell if someone is an authority on a topic?

I am going to try and make an offer to buy a site from a guy who had a solid PR 6 and excellent rankings. He might be freaking out now that he can't see his PR and might let it go for a lot cheaper lol

The toolbar pr indicator has been offline many times before. It's just a "we are working on it" glitch...

LOL, just made a test with one pagerank check site and got:

webmasterworld.com has Google PageRank 70 out of 10

that's kinda nice PR :D

I can't think of a better way to put huge dampener on the selling of text links.

It also seems to go in hand in hand with google blocking pr on the directory cat pages of dmoz, yahoo & goog directories noted a day or two ago.

Shame you can't see it now :( .... :)?

If they were going to do it, the feature would just be removed from the toolbar.

No, not the pro buyers. I would never buy links based on PR alone. I may look at it, but not for long :)

I do know that Mikkel hence the word dampener.

Whatever I say is just guessing anyway, but I could never understand why they released it anyway.

As for assesing the quality of a page, I'll do that myself thankyou very much, usually by reading what they have to say.

Still it is very exciting prospect, if there was going to be a major change.

I never understood what Google had to gain by making toolabr PR visible. It's of minimum usefulness to non-webmasters, and it opens up all sorts of possibilities for manipulation and link-swapping for all the wrong reasons. If it goes, good riddance.
