Page Rank reset On domain renew
Page Rank Decressed when i renewed the Domain Name

Msg#: 4342657 posted 10:55 am on Jul 22, 2011 (gmt 0)

Well yesterday i have Re-newed my Domain.
I Just woke up and for some reason i though in checking the Page Rank.
Untill not long ago my Page Rank was 3, Now i see it is 1. Why !? Dos PR Get lower when you renew the domain?
If so, dos it get fixed after a few days, calculating the cached pages from google and so on?

Probably just a coincidence. There was a recent rollout of new toolbar pr so it might be a reflection of that. Or just a glitch.

I dont understand what you mean by yjat rollout.
Can the PR Be decrease in time, instead of increasing?
Is it Normal?

In the past weeks the percentage from Google Analytics has decreassed alot..at the moment its -1.64% with the red arrow down.
Why is that?
Just looked more and it seems thats the number of visits, so my visits have decreassed in the past weeks... dos the decressed visits lower your PR?

PS: Im not obsessed on getting a high PR Or something..
Im just curious why did it decreass. And i also dont like to lose stuff :)

Yes, when you renew a domain, you lose Pagerank and your traffic instantly disappear. That's why nobody ever renew their domains.

But seriously, like jimbeetle said.

koan, you are being annoying. Even if it would be like this, they should be re-newed, despite losing the useless PR. There are peoples that got their Domains Registered for 10 years in advance. So i wouldnt have been surprised that they renew them for that long period just to keep their PR more...

I have put other questions,like i the PR Has any reason to decrease.

PR will decrease if you have LOST links.
Renewing your domain will not affect your PR, up or down.

Usual disclaimer - PR DOES. NOT. MATTER!

I just noticed that my PR increased by one point, so my PR is 2 now.

What do you mean by lost links?
If you are talking about backlinks to my site, that cant be it.
I have more back links than i had when my PR Was 3. As i've exchanged links/banners with a few fellows on sites with related content with me..

Ill keep an eye on when i next renew it and see if it decresses.

I Know that Page rank does not matter. But if it got to a x point it would be nice to stay there... :)

I don't think renewing domain will not effect on your sites PR, up or down. Your site PR may down if Google Panda updates after your domain renewing.
