My site had about 70 backlinks and PR4. Since yesterday, my PR has gone to 0 (full white bar) and today, when I entered "link:www.(-mysitehere-).com", it returned zero results. I know it hasn't been banned or anything because the site is still quite impressive on the SERPs, plus I haven't had any risky link exchanges or optimising done...not now, not ever. Has anyone noticed anything similar? Is ithis possibly an update of backlinks or PR?

Don't worry about it - if your internal pages have PR.

It will all come back; you just need to give it 2 to 8 weeks.

Only panic if the internal pages start becoming PR0.

My internal pages didn't have a pagerank to start with!

FreakyIndian,

I agree PCInk that there's probably not much to worry about if you're still looking good in the SERPS. My home page went to PR0 a month or so ago and it hasn't affected my traffic at all - actually, my traffic has increased.

Only panic if the internal pages start becoming PR0.

I've got a few (out of several thousand) internal pages that have gone to PR0 also. But I'm not worried yet.

All my internal pages got PR0 with the last PR update except two subdomains, but rankings haven't changed.
So don't worry. Look at the rankings and not at the PR.

FreakyIndian - Has your domain name expired? Google usually resets PR + backlinks around the time that a domain name goes into pending cancel status.

My domain is just fine....and Googlebot visits the site regularly as well....well, I mean when I make updates, and the changes are generally relftected quite quickly in the SERPs as well. Just no PR and no backlinks!
