Something is going on, I just looked and saw a certain page go from PR5 to PR4, which I've been expecting and watching for.

All good for me.

Sub pages all updated finally - on a very high 6 :)

New sites that have been up for 3 weeks have been given the green. Which is strange but good.

Up on all sites and loving it.

Hope that everyone has gone well.

I was just checking through my backlinks and noticed that each time I clicked to the next page the number of pages I had left would change. Rushed over to WW to see if anyone had posted and here it is.:)

All good. Very Good.

Anyone have any indicators of what the cut-off date was yet (cabbie: at least in their experience!)?

A site launched in late May moved up to pr 4, but shows no backlinks?

Wow, just watched my site go from a PR7 to a PR5 and all internal pages are now PR0, my backlinks went from 1,900+ organic links, many of them 6-8 to 300 even though several of the PR7's and PR8's still show.

Our allinurl also went from 500+ to 40 and most only display the url or a tracking url.

I think this url problem has come full circle and the PR is being calculated with most of the pages missing from the index or in the index with incorrect urls

All my sites PR jumped one to two points except 2 1/2 month old site that went from PR0 to PR4.

Now need to check SERPs. Anybody see anything new there?

216.239.51.99

First glance, page indexed June 2 has PR while page indexed June 10 (or so) does not.

Only checked a few so far, but pages linking to themselves are not showing as backlinks now.

I came here to see what was going on as well.

I was looking at my master statistics control panel and every single site had seen a noticable jump in traffic today over yesterday. I figured there would be an update thread running and sure enough, here it is.

My PR7 site which had suffered the dreaded no title, no description situation is now bouncing between PR7 and PR0. Plus the backlinks are gone :(

my site does show backlinks on 216.239.51.99. It was launched on 5/28. Actually it was separated from a different domain, which had links to it from day one. I started getting other links around the first week of June. The original links do show up. Those after do not. Given steveb's observations, I would narrow down further to the 3rd or 4th of June.

Same situation here. We had a PR7. It's now a PR3 (3,150 backlinks) with no title, no description for most pages.

Don't think so.... this is more than your usual PR/backlinks update.

You are seeing the result of Google's latest "tweak" in their algorithm and filters. For some sites this will be as big a shock as "florida"!

The return of links.tld is welcome. Not a bad thing to try perhaps, but not a sensible implementation, Google.

I add pages pretty much everyday and from what I can tell the cut off for my sites was May 21st. Well, somewhere between May 21st and May 24th... I took a couple days off in there. All pages prior to the 21st are showing PR, and 24th and after are not. However, it'll also depend on your crawl schedule, but I think the end of May to beginning of June is a good estimate on how far back they went this time. Much better than that pathetic PR update last time!

strange, I have almost the reverse problem, most of my pages that were live before May 21 are not showing in the index, but the 40-50 nmew pages I have added since then are in, but without PR

...and you're basing that statement on?
