I also noticed a pr update.
I run a website of a chamber orchestra and have got two inbound links from pr4 and two links from pr5 pages.
Furthermore I have about 10-20 links from less than pr4 pages.
My resulting pr is 3.
For another chamber orchestra page google shows only one external link from a site without any pr and four internal links.
However this other page got a pr of 5.
I do not understand how they got pr of 5 and why does google show internal links for them?
Furthemore for another orchestra google shows 15 internal links and only one external from a pr5 page.
The orchestra page has got a pr of 6?
How is this possible?
Could someone please help me?
Thanks in advance
First time ever, Google has finally woken up and found a heap of my deep backlinks.
And I'm now a PR5! Every single one of my sub-pages is a PR4 - previously I was 4 and all sub pages 3. This has been a long time coming, I've been frustrated by so many PR4+ backlinks never ever being acknowledged by Google.
5 is considered "respectable" I can't believe it :)
Prior to this, over the last week I've also noticed my rankings becoming slightly better..
It is good to see that Google recognise all of the link building I have done over the last two months as well, shows they are paying attention!
I thought my PR would change last update but it didnt and I had almost given up hope.
But it came out of the blue and now I am PR5!
Interestingly my SERPS havent improved since before the last update.
It seems that Google wants to make sure that the links are not just temporary before committing PR
It is just now that the chainge in PR and the backlinks are showing. The effects of those changes, though, began to be seen during the "tweaking" that showed up 1-2 weeks ago, more or less.
Thus, I don't think you'll see any big differences in the SERPS right now - as the changes already happened. Still, nice to see updated links and PR so soon after the last PR update.
You know how I was just raving about my site jumping to PR5..
Well just now its back to PR4.. and all my subpages back to 3 - DAMN.. But I did some quick analysis and found the cause.
I'm listed in dmoz/google directory, the category page that i'm on only has me and 2 other sites (its pretty niche).. anyway, that page was PR5 itself earlier when I was 5, now its a PR4! It just dropped and I've suddenly dropped back to 4 at the same time.. So either I'm right on the edge of being a 5, or google directory holds a lot of extra weight and if it becomes 5 then I do..
i'm back up to 5 again. the google directory page is back up to 5, and a competitor is up to 4 again.
When I was 4 they were 3.
BUT, they aren't linked to from the google directory page.. Weird..
My guess is that a whole pile of pages are fluctuating right now effecting many sites.. I just hope it stops where it is right now and I stay with 5 :)
