It was on 2 DC's about four hours ago, now its showing on 4. Gotta be an update as I haven't had that PR number for over a year now :)

I couldn't disagree more steveb.

I created a site a year ago, and spent the past twelve months working for many hours every day accumulating relevant links and adding unique, handwritten content.

Today my reward finally came. The site has gone from a PR3 to a PR6, and all the subpages (more than 100) have gone from PR0-PR4 to PR5. Backlinks have increased from 1,200 to 1,800.

I didn't expect this. <paraphrased: Very few sites in my market have even a PR6. Even one of the widely recognizable market leaders is only a PR7.>

My example is not unique. Page Rank offers us all something to work toward. It's also recognition that we're doing something right.

Wow, PR from June, what a pain, only NEWBS look at toolbar PR.

Why don't they finally remove this PR from toolbar instead of updating it with nonsense like this.

PR reminds me of Metallicas song "So What .."

"So What.." wasn't a Metallica song, they just covered it (or maybe that was your point?)

>> What is surprising is that the homepage is still at PR0: <<

I see that a lot when sites are linking internally to /index.html and Google is listing www.domain.com/ instead.

rkhare: Matt Cutts has confirmed that all IPs from one class-C block are in the same datacentre, so there is no need to check multiple IPs in each class C block.

There is, however, some 44 different Class-C IP address [webmasterworld.com] blocks now active... for a total of more than 700 unique IP addresses.

Looks like a pretty good BL update, and PR "entertainment" numbers changing as well.

For the first time in years I am seeing a SERP update on the same DCís with the backlink/PR update.

Anyone else seeing this?

Additionally; as others have mentioned: You might want to discredit the value of that little green bar, but if used properly, it can tell you a lot about your site navigation.

As the owner/webmaster of a large PR8 site, I find these updates very valuable.

Agree, the PR is entertainment at this point since it should already be recognized in SERPS before we can actually see it.

Still, it's nice to see we are making progress - even if it's after the fact.

After almost five years our home page PR is still 4. Canonical issues have been resolved and hundreds of new pages of deliciously original content added. Hundreds of inbound links to various pages. Yet still a 4.

Oh well, theres always next time.

Yes congrats too from me on the PR8!

On a site that I've been particularly concentrating on for the past couple of months to get it back on page 1, it is currently fluctuating between position #10 - #11 and sometimes is not there at all! (very scary)

Can anyone give me a reason why the site would disappear at all when all the sites around it remain the same... Is anyone else experiencing similar that could point me in the right direction...

A brief history... my client has two sites, both (PR4) sat on completely different IPs, selling the same product but each site is optimised for a different set of his industry keywords... One site is #1 in Google for one key phrase and #10/11 for the other, more competitive, key phrase...

On the site occupying the #1 postition, all the pages, apart from the homepage, link to the homepage of the #11 site... No pages on the #11 site link to the other...

My question is this; Would this set up lead to any penalising, point deduction or negatives of any sort from Google?

Best wishes,

kartiksh

For those of you that are not seeing the update, you need to use a page rank tool that shows the page rank on various DC's.

My site is going from a PR6 to a PR8.

This is how the "SEO Future PR Tool" shows my site:

For me, this update demonstrates that Google's focus is less about PR and more about "other factors." My site is just a bit over 3 years old now and after sitting at a PR 5 for about a year, it looks like it is going to a PR 6. The vast majority of my "competitors" are PR6 websites, but I know I only get a fraction of the search volume they get.

And for anyone that's newer than me to this field, I will tell you this is my experience... I stopped looking for link partners over a year ago. If you write good content, then sites will link to you. My strongest links (from .edu and .gov) were all obtained via natural linking. I created useful tools to supplement the content and I did all this with the USER, not search engines, in mind.

Plenty of authority links!

Aha, one of the sites has PR7 across several DCs while having PR8 across the others. Thanks for pointing me out to the tool.
