Hi,
my site had PR4 but during this dance it was decreased to PR0.I completly changed my site some times ago and deleted my previous content.Could this be the reason?
If so, what should i do? Should i mail to google? Will the ban be forever?
Anyway im completly depressed :(

Sorry to hear that, paff3. We can't automatically assume it's a penalty; there may be some other reasons, so don't despair just yet. Have there been any changes in your inbound links, or the PR of the pages linking to you?

Just wanted to add that when i search for my domain in google its there.I suppose its a good news.But still the PR0 bothers me.Its almost impossible to get good results this way.Link exchange is 4x as hard.

Paff -
I has a personal site a while ago that had a PR of 4 soon after its launch, mainly because I had a link to my site from several 3 other sites with PR's of at least 5. These were the only sites that linked to mine.

Just to see what would happen, we removed my link from those other sites, and sure enough my site dropped to PR 0 after the next update.

Again, just to see what would happen, we re-linked my site from those other ones, and now I'm back up to PR 4 (after waiting again for the next update...).

My advice is to not assume its a penalty, and to investigate how many links you have/dont have pointing to your site from elsewhere.

A lot of people are reporting lost links during this last update.

Sit tight and hopefully the next update will correct the problem.
