 11:40 am on Feb 6, 2012 (gmt 0)

Hello - I know many like to watch the PR, well it has just been updated.

I see a PR update on my sites. Looks like Google has done a PR update as of this morning.

In fact, the toolbar PR seems to be updating. I am seeing new pagerank values depending on the browser I'm running. The Chrome add-on is showing updated values most of the time while the FireFox legacy toolbar I still have installed is showing old values.

I'm also seeing a huge increase in Google referrals, but I'm not able to see us listed on the SERP referrals. PR is up across the board.

A few minor changes for me - nothing too serious

My last couple PR=6's turned into 5's, but maybe that's because I 301'd them to a new site. Haven't seen much connection between PR and draw in recent years, my most popular page with Google at the moment (recently drawing around a thousand a day) is a 2!

I have a newer site that just moved from PR0 to PR2 on the home page only.


 1:55 pm on Feb 7, 2012 (gmt 0)

Yup. PR update happening.

A lot of our site's inner pages have attained and increased PR, I treat it as sign of life for these pages.

I launched a small website on 27 January. It is already featuring high in the results and while it has no TBPR yet it does have a white bar (as opposed to grey).


 5:42 pm on Feb 8, 2012 (gmt 0)

Ah, but a white bar IS real PR - some amount more than 0 and less than 1.


 6:17 pm on Feb 8, 2012 (gmt 0)

Yes, that was my point, I got it within ten days of launch, which is unusual.


 6:35 pm on Feb 8, 2012 (gmt 0)

Yea I wrote a blog post in January that debuted at PR3. Didn't remember G acting that fast.


 7:50 pm on Feb 8, 2012 (gmt 0)

No change for our 14 year old site, at least not for the home page.


 8:53 pm on Feb 8, 2012 (gmt 0)


I dropped from a PR 6 to a 5! Is there a contact email from Google specifically for these types of issues (I would like to see why I dropped in PR)? Or is there anything in Google Webmaster Central that can give me any indication as to why I dropped in PR? I noticed this drop in PR on Jan 19th, a few of my competitors dropped in PR also.


 9:31 pm on Feb 8, 2012 (gmt 0)

Nope. It's just a recalculation; maybe some of the links to your site were re-evaluated.


 12:03 am on Feb 9, 2012 (gmt 0)

Yup... A new site launched last fall went from PR0 to PR1...


 4:27 am on Feb 11, 2012 (gmt 0)

5 years ago I launched a new site with a few hundred back links, got a PR5 - no traffic.
Now, the same site with over 50k backlinks got a PR1 this update - But with an incredible traffic. Couldn't be happier to see my PR decreasing, in fact I want it to go to a negative number. LOL
