Hi,

I have Google toolbar installed both in firefox [v1.5.0.7] and the IE 6 latest.

However, when i visit my sites on both these browsers, IE and Firefix shows different pageranks for the same site. Firefox shows atleast 1/2 PR lesser than the IE.

Which is more valid?
is this normal and others see the similar difference?

I also have a PR plugin for firefox installed... and sometimes within the same firefox window, this add-on and the toolbar in forefox also shows different PR.

Which one to trust?

Thanks & Cheers

Either way, it's 3-5 months out of date, so it really does not matter at all.

Also, toolbar PR is being updated at the moment (it was 6-9 months out of date), which may explain the differences. Or not.

correct... toolbar PR is being updated at the moment and i do see that chnage happening and i was trying to confirm the same though.

But i noticed the difference in PR in two different browser but supposed to be the same Google toolbar.

BTW what is this 8 to 9 months out of date thingy...? sorry if i am askign this in a wrong thread/forum.

Thanks & Cheers

showing the same on my site, firefox is up in rank by one and IE keeps fluctuating between pr3 and pr4 (pr3) being the old pr rating. Just hope both stay at the new pr 4 :-)

on IE, my site has pr 6 in the morning and 0 in afternoon or someday it's changed every hour.

Anybody has the same problem?

I didn't install toolbar on firefox yet but I will and I'll let you know what it shows .

Thanks

Toolbar PR (TBR) is a static value that Google "pushes" out 3, perhaps 4 times a year. Given that a webpages PR is constantly changing, it's more than likely that the TPR will be fairly close to what Google see's as the dynamic PR - on / shortly after the TPR updates. Depending on which DC you connect to, you'll see a range of PR values for the same page, even from moment to moment, around the time the TPR is being updated.

There are sites that allow you to "see" what your current Google PR is - I apologize in advance if I'm not supposed to post links here.

Try: [livepr.raketforskning.com...]

Has anyone else noticed that (toolbar) PR is still fluctuating? I've been seeing PR changes from Sept 30th, still going on today. Isn't this awfully long for a PR update?

wow thats a cool tool.
Just as an aside... Where can i get a copy of that script?

Also... yes the update/push still seems to be happening. Any idea when it would stabilize?

Thanks
