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

Backlinks up by 5 times (from 42 to over 200), many are PR 5's and I even added a PR 6. Traffic is up 30 Percent in the last month. My site seems to be dropping from from 5 to 4.
Doesnt make alot of sense to me. Does it to you?

Just checked my google-sitemaps-account (webmaster central). Many of the links to the statistics (crawl stats, query stats etc) were down, and the whole account reported
Verification status: Pending verification
Last attempt Sep 30, 2006: The system is currently busy. We will process this verification as soon as possible. Please check back later for an updated status.
Anyone else seeing this? My account has been verified months ago. I only see this note at the www-version, the non-www still has a green hook. The accont reports last download: sep,23rd, whereas normally it is beeing checked every few days.
Can we expect some broader changes and new tools on webmaster central?

This is to inform that the Google Update is ON and over in most of the locations. It was nice to see google update is reasonable (let me know if you want to know why reasonable) this time. For any technical questions, post your message here on WebmasterWorld. You will get your answers without any questions.

> over in most of the locations
This is complete nonsense at least for TBPR in most of the default german DCs (18.104.22.168 for toolbarqueries.google.de at the very moment). I launched quite a number of pages in July, and the sitemaps-account (which now works fine again) is still showing a big green bar "pagerank not yet assigned." The same holds true for the little green (still white, to be precise) bar on a few other pages designed in August and September.
BTW: Are there any means to read the sitemaps statistics on a specific Datacenter, so that I can see forthcoming results? The login-procedure seems to comprise some sort of redirect to the standard page.

Interested to know if others think that toolbar update is complete or not?.
On a few of our sites i see absolutely no change to the toolbar for index or internal pages yet i know the links to these pages have increased.
Also, is it possible that your link count can in fact go down on a site but google reports you as having more links with the link: command?
As the link: command only gives a sample of your overall links im thinking that as its not a percentage of what you do have, is it now just a random number?
| 11:06 am on Oct 1, 2006 (gmt 0)|
The links are updated far more currently than PR, which is a snapshot from June.
Links appear to be as current as two weeks ago.
Weird that the two things are totally unrelated but "updated" at the same time.
| 11:17 am on Oct 1, 2006 (gmt 0)|
our sites have pagerank dancing. Half DCs have new pageranks, icreased of 1 point from the old one, the others still shows the old ones.
I think we will have t wait a couple of days to see all DCs updated.

I wouldn't crack open the champagne just yet folks, I'm seeing some really oddball PR8 and PR7 sites at the moment which just shouldn't be (including one of my more, ahem, spammy sites which just went PR8).
Something has got mathematically whacked. Let it settle over the next week or two before drawing any conclusions.
| 4:08 pm on Oct 1, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Those sites just increased +1PR since June PR update so there is no magic here. However, I agree on waiting a few days before DCs are all syncronized.

I see live.com on PR0 :)

Another one of those infamous BAD DATA PUSH, maybe ;-)

Updates are always good :)
| 7:48 pm on Oct 1, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Updates are always good.. mmm, not quite. Anyway, now seems that, even displaying same PR, some improvements in rankings..
| 12:13 am on Oct 2, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Notice that DMOZ has page rank on it sub directories again
| 12:18 am on Oct 2, 2006 (gmt 0)|
It always did - as far as I am aware - but it did depend on whether you looked at www or non-www and whether it was .org or .com though.

Good morning Folks
Just to mention that our kind fellow member Matt Cutts has published this morning few words about the TBPR update.
New Toolbar PageRanks visible [mattcutts.com]

Shouldn't that be 'New Toolbar Pageranks Invisible'?

I would say it originated as a mathematical error. Looks to be settling now. My poor quality site with a Foolbar "PR8" has now gone back to it's rightful place (PR3).
I wasn't quick enough off the mark to flog some homepage links ;)
| 4:19 am on Oct 5, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Well, it look s to me like this update is actually going backwards now. I'm seeing less and less datacentres with the new rank.
My Asian website only occasionally hits the new pagerank from where I am currently in the UK and my moderators in Thailand almost never see the new rank.

I have one site which increased the PR from 0 -> 3 but I have not seen all DCs updated with 3.... this is strange... Is this means google still in the process of updating
| 5:19 am on Oct 5, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Asia_Expat, you are right. There are less number of DCs with new PRs. In Matt's words, there are more number of DCs with old infrastructure now.
| 10:21 am on Oct 5, 2006 (gmt 0)|
> it look s to me like this update is actually going backwards now.
Which I wouldn't find that bad, actually. Just resolved that mydomain.com vs mydomain.com/index.html issue cf
and I would be very glad if google took another breath to assign the expected PR to my homepage, instead of keeping it on the same level as some recently designed inner pages.
| 1:09 pm on Oct 5, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Well, my pr is still stuck at 6, however traffic is up up up!
No sleep lost here.
| 4:22 pm on Oct 6, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Really felt left out of the party, today our sites PR has been updated. A mixed bag as always, some up, some down.
| 4:34 pm on Oct 6, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Same here, this is the first day I've actually noticed any PRs going up.
| 1:09 am on Oct 7, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Quick question. This PR update will be the first time a new site of mine shows some PR. It's a 6. That's all fine and good, but the thing is, it's still sandboxed (or whatever phrase the cool kids are using these days to describe a new site that doesn't rank for things it obviously should rank for, such as its exact title in quotes).
I haven't thrown up a new site in quite a while, so this whole sandbox (or whatever) thing is new to me. My question is, is it normal for a new site (June 06) to have enough quality links to show a PR6, yet not have enough quality links to be out of the sandbox?
| 2:46 am on Oct 7, 2006 (gmt 0)|
My index.html and home.html are still showing 5 for all data centres. But my other pages which were once 5 are now shoing 4 for most data centres. I have more links to inner pages and I have gradually added lots of content.
A client site that I just launched in July from scratch is already showing 4. Another site on which I did some work for the same owner is still showing 2 even though it's a much older site. A site on which I did a ton of work has now gone from 5 to 4 in most data centres after being a 5 for almost 2 years.
What the heck is going on?
| 2:52 am on Oct 7, 2006 (gmt 0)|
The rollout of new PR values is definitely speeding up. Here in the UK I still haven't seen any new Toolbar PR yet, but the entire 209.85.129/135/143.xx range has now been updated.
I'd say there are less than 25% of DCs still to update.
| 5:02 am on Oct 8, 2006 (gmt 0)|
I am still waiting for an answer and soem advice. Thanks.
| 2:29 pm on Oct 9, 2006 (gmt 0)|
I am seeing another push of back links and pr today...
