Today 06 oct all my tools stoped showing pagerank requests. I tryed outside sites and still pageranks for all sites snow N/A. Is this maybe a step in Google's fight against link exchange and link selling (not showing it anymore) ? Or are they pulling it out of the algo.

PageRank is still alive in the Toolbar but Google changed the lookup URL. This change has caused third party tools from looking up a page’s PageRank. If you use Internet Explorer and turn on the Google Toolbar, you will still be able to look up the Toolbar PageRank score. But you may not be able to do so if you use a third party tool, not until they update their lookup scripts, or you can just hack them like I did with the SEO Status PageRank/Alexa Toolbar Here is the link to the tutorial [bloggermind.net ]

@tangor, I use Page Rank for my pages to tell me which are considered weaker than others (as a preliminary screen). It's a diagnostic tool I use -- grey bar pages actually do appear inferior to my other pages and seem to reinforce my opinion of a page. So I've found it helpful in that regard. Any other ways to check for page issues easily (other than Page Rank)? I'm not a big SEO type so I don't use screening tools and not sure exactly how to pinpoint "bad" pages quickly.
