I added a couple new pages and some new graphics to my site recently and my site PR dropped from 4 to a 2. Do you know why this would happen? How can I get my PR back up without removing the new info? Could the new info have caused the PR to drop? Thanks for any input!

I noticed different PR's (mostly 1 PR point lower) on sites that I monitor today. One was a 6, then a half hour later a 5.
Does PR vary across datacenters? Indexes? My understanding is that it is updated periodically (around the same time link update takes place) and not in constant flux. My new pages have gone from PR0 to a PR4 about 3 months later.
In your case I think it is unrelated to the new pages.

Our main page dropped from 5 to 4 today even though our google traffic has doubled due to some seo & marketing done over the last month.
A little disheartening but it was probably on the cusp of 4 - 5 PR anyway. Might also have been due to converting the site to XML a few weeks ago and assuming google would index it properly (what a mistake that was). It was changed back to HTML soon after we realised.
