In the new update, my home page kept its PR4 but all interior pages got PR0 even if thew were PR3-4 before the update. All pages are still in the index but PR0.
In case it's a penality, can Google penalize interior pages without touching the home page? Maybe i should wait to see what happens in next update?
Anybody has experienced that before?

Well yes i have done some stupid stuff before (duplicate content with another domain) this was before i discovered this forum and got more informed. I tried to clean up everything before the new update, which i thought would happen at the end on the month :-)... I removed the bad stuff and started a very good collection of links but i was too late for Googlebot.
Well it is probably a penality..
Any suggestions? E.g.: building new pages with new filenames etc
I really need this - all SERP's have dramatically gone down because of this (Most were on 1st page of results before) and this already has an effect on sales. My boss is not happy and i hope it's not because of a penality.
Maybe i'll try to put up new interior pages to see if it can do something, because if it stays like this for 1-2 months i'm toasted.
Any other tip will be welcome
Anyway, the front page at PR5 now matches the most important inside pages, which are all steadily showing PR5.
Is this not as strange as I think it is?
it's not unusual to have front page and inside pages with the same PR?
Most commonly, there is a PR drop since home pages often attract the most links, and, in turn, distribute their PR to interior pages. However, sometimes popular interior pages have external linkage. Also, keep in mind that the toolbar isn't precise - differences in real PR of up to a point could end up showing as the same integer toolbar value.
Oh, the front page is buried very, very deep in the search results. So, I don't think it really has the PR the toolbar says it does, but that is just my opinion.
I don't think I care since almost no one ever enters my site on the main page. I just wonder how Google knew this.
