Old site PR remains, new site gets a PR of 1.


 4:44 pm on Dec 31, 2008 (gmt 0)

i also see a PR update went from a PR1 to a PR4.
i remember a few days ago they increased PR of internal pages this must be the full roll out of PR then.

I had some PR gains, no losses there. But I did lose sitelinks on some sites. Sure wish I could figure that out.

We haven't moved in about two years, I guess that's good.

+1 to PR5 for us.


 7:58 am on Jan 1, 2009 (gmt 0)

PR raises across the board on all of my sites and pages and I haven't bought links so it makes me smile even more.

All public wordpress and blogspot blogs are showing gray bar, anyone seeing any PR on their public blog?


 9:31 am on Jan 1, 2009 (gmt 0)

#*$!, I have still no PR?
Does google hate new blog like ours which has original content?


 1:49 pm on Jan 1, 2009 (gmt 0)

New site from late September from PR0 to PR3. Nice.



 4:10 pm on Jan 1, 2009 (gmt 0)

one jumped from 3 to 5, the rest pretty much stayed the same, no losses that were not expected, nothing to make me cry.

creative craig

New content picked up PR quickly, nothing lost.

Plz I wanna know this badly!
My Blog is still no PR
I started blogging in the mid of September
Blog contains 45 posts, almost all original content, cool design, 11 backlinks with cool blogs, plus i also submitted my blog to many free blog directories, i have 3 comments on my blog, unique visitors=10 in avg
I also use google analytics, statcounter, but yet my blog is still no PR--I see the same old gray bar in the google toolbar
Plz any suggestion for me? Coz I am a poor guy and I want to earn few bucks through Google adsense and I need visitors for that. But I am not getting any visitors at all. Why am I getting no PR?
Is it all about the less no of posts in my blog?
Plz help me!

The Page Rank that gets "voted to" your page is basically calculated by how much PR the linking page has, divided by how many links that page has in all. Then there are other factors, such as Google deciding not to give certain sites any PR at all - especially when they are not really what Google calls a "freely given editorial vote". Many free directories have no PR power at all these days. Another situation is where a link is only given value for a short time and its value falls away rather fast.

It sounds like your blog doesn't yet have enough backlink attention from other powerful pages and sites around the web, John. There are many actions you can take to promote your blog - but that discussion falls outside the topical area of this forum.
