A very old site I run is seeing some nice improvements. User metrics could be better, but backlink profile is as solid as rock and is probably unmatched in its niche. My second site (6 months old [plus 10 in development and testing]) has considerably better user experience metrics compared to 8 of my largest competitors and though traffic has increased at an unheard of rate every month since launch, we're seeing a slow down today which could mean the first period of a lower weekly average in terms of traffic.
Nevertheless, it looks to me like Pagerank may be making a comeback versus user metrics. Of course, YMMV and probably will!
