Backlinks showing PR2 and PR3's

Is this due to an update?

Just noticed a couple of PR2 and PR3 pages in the backlinks to a web site in Google.

Is this a normal effect of a PR update going on? That would be my best guess as to why they are showing.

No, there is no update yet, this is perfectly normal behaviour for google.

It could be the update that we don't see has now made those links PR 4 even though current toolbar shows them currently as lower
let us know after next toolbar update if they are higher as it will prove interesting

It's perfectly normal for Google to sometimes show PR2 and PR3 backlinks. They usually don't but they do sometimes.

I tend to believe those pr2 pr3 links actually are pr4+ now.

but what is happening why so much uncertainty and fluctuation in PR this time, I have a seen a change in Pr some 10 days back, I saw my site which is now Pr5 going to PR2(which is impossible), when will this drama end.

Or it could be a reverse.

Agree with Steveb. I sometimes see PR0 links on back link check. They will soon vanish.

and why my 297 links:
1 x PR7 + 25 x PR6 + 151 x (PR5 and PR4) + 120 x (PR3)
are nothing in google's eyes compared with that my competitor's site wich only has got 59 links (4xPR6 + 38xPR5 + 17xPR4). That site is the first for the normal KW query and for allinanchor. How can it be true?
Sorry if I'm altering the course of te thread a little bit but I can't get out that question of my mind. I'm sure somebody here can help me.... ;)

Digimon, what is the percentage of backlinks that comes from the same domains? One of the possible reasons is that Google discounts relevancy for links from different pages in the same domains. Also your competitors may have tons of links from PR3 or less that do not show as backlinks.

anchor text is more important that PR.

Another case that proofs this theory.

I have links from 30 different sites. I have 6 internal links (the site is small) and I have 13 links from same class C adress block. The rest (+-230) are coming from different sites, different class C adress block,....

Anchor text.... let me laugh (or cry).... my main KW is in the 95% of my links pointing my home page and my inner pages.... The number 1 in SERPS it's got 90% with 59. The number 2 not even 50%....
