I see people mentioning pagerank but I have seen zero (I do have that line in my HOSTS file for the newest pagerank). I've been thinking that the comments being made are from people who don't have the line in their hosts file, so they are just catching up or something. And I've been thinking that whenever the Google Directory updates that maybe then we will see new pagerank as well as the new categories of the sites that have been in dmoz for months but now will join the Google Directory.
Anyway, it seems to me that the most important part of the update hasn't even started yet.
If you find a Google IP address that gives the current results and use that IP address for toolbarqueries.google.com, then you'll see the new PageRank.
I would expect any changes made before roughly January 26 to show in the new index.
I have checked sites linking to the new sites, and they are showing new sites in their backlinks, so hopefully the new
sites are at least PR4.
