Just wait and work on improving the site and its marketing. The PageRank you see in the toolbar can be flakey at times, and it's always "old news", not based on the current value.

Is your "zero" a white bar or a gray bar? If it's a gray bar, that isn't really a zero, it means "no data available."

First off - do not confuse PageRank with rankings. Even more, do not confuse rankings with traffic - and traffic is really what you want. There is so much that impacts rankings - far beyond PageRank. For a more thorough point of view, I suggest you study some of the threads in our Hot Topics area [webmasterworld.com], which is always pinned to the top of this forum's index page.

With regard to PR 1 versus PR 0 - it might be only the smallest of differences. You see toolbar PR is all you can see - and that is rounded off to fit in a scale of zero to ten. But behind the scenes Google uses a value that they calculate to many decimal places. So you might have has 1.00001 and now it changed to 0.99999, just because one of your backlinks lost a backlink to their site.

So don't be very concerned about toolbar PR.

On a similar note.

My site previously had PR4 for 3 years. Recently i set up preferred URL in WMT and did set up my canonical on the home page to www. Also i used the host admin panel to redirect non www to www URL.

I figured this was the correct way to do things.

Next day my page rank dropped from 4 to 2. And both www and non www carry PR2. This sucks.

I note that the server side redirect is a 302. So I removed it. 1 week later my home page was grey barred for 48 hours.

I liked my PR 4 (at one time i had PR7 on this site - all via natural backlinks) My backlink profile remains unchanged.

Is there a way back from this?

When redirects are added or changed, there can be an extended period of trust checking. (Spammers were playing around with all manner of redirects for many years.) The gray bar just means "no data available" - so I'd say patience is the best policy - especially if your hosting situation makes a 301 redirect impossible.

In the recent changes of Google SERP update, My PR got changed directly from 1 to 3. But I can see there is changes in my traffic pattern of the site. Visitors are less as compared to previously. I need more help from you, Can you tell me How many externals I can provide in a day for my site ?

There's no answer to a question like that. The links that do you the most gooda re not links that "you provide." They are links that are freely provided by other sites who like something your site is doing.

Think about how to please your visitors, how to "get the word out" about what your site offers that is exceptional. PR just updated on the toolbar, but your real PR has been in the area of 3 for a while. As you can see, PR on its own is not a guarantee of traffic.
