---- Why don't my third level pages have any PageRank?

I have a six month old retail site with several hundred pages.
So, it's still a fairly new site in Google's eyes.
Most pages doing well in the serps and most of those pages have a page rank of 2 or 3.
That would be expected based on the explanation above. You're just going through the typical "seating" process.
My problem is several pages that are two levels below my home page in navigation have a "unranked" for page rank.
It doesn't matter. PageRank is innaccurate at the Toolbar level. You may see 0 in the TB, but it is possible that page is in the process of being calculated and does have PR assigned, you just won't see it.
They have been crawled as recently as three days ago, other pages on the same level of navigation have a page rank of 1 and 2.
Are the pages without PR newer pages? If so, then what you are seeing is normal.
Click path is what determines how PR is distributed throughout your site. You may need to provide more access points closer to the top of the click path to get PR to flow through to those lower level pages.
Secondly when doing a Google search for the keywords on the unranked pages my homepage ranks #1 but the specific page doesn't appear anywhere. The homepage doesn't have a single relative keyword on it!
Clustering? Google knows about those pages, they just don't have enough juice yet to pull their own weight. It sounds like you are right in that period where the pages are "proving themselves".
