How are you checking www3, everytime I try to go there it redirects me to www.

It has been like this for a while now.

.....

Yippee - PR updated - well, it dont really mean much to me nowadays. As another posters has pointed out, loads of new sites are still suffering from the 'Google Lag'.

Update definitively going on.
I see different PR on quite some pages of mine, probably depending on the DC.
Different PR using IE, Mozilla, or PROG

Yeah, the PR has updated. I've added few pages in my site few days ago and they were showing the PR0 till date. But today they show PR4 on the google toolbaar.

Cheers! :)

Statcounter.com has dropped from its 10 to 9!

I wonder why more and more people must be using it meaning more and more pages are linking to it...

One of my sites, which had been banned to white bar (all pages) two years ago(!), finally came back to PR5, with all internal pages with PR3-4.

However no changes in SERPs so far :( ... site comes up on 5th+ pages only.

This update has a huge advantage however: getting backlinks becomes MUCH easier...I don't have to explain why...

This update made my day happier...it was worth investing the hard work after all

webmasterguy, I think Google has done a revaluation of PR, that the old PR * about 0.8-0.9 gives the new PR. That's why some sites like Yahoo have dropped a notch.

It's difficult, of course, to know this for sure as there's a lot of shifting sand.

I've made a new post about this theory, it's awaiting moderation.

In my opinion the update have been fair, for once. Any other experience? We´ve been waiting patiently, and now, finally, the update is done!

Yepp, some sort of update, though strange behaviour:

1) I see no changes if I pop to my site using the recently visited sites in the address bar, but do see changes if I pop in tying the address.

2) Usually all pages linked to from my index-page inherited the same PR but today one got PR1 and another one PR3. I have to wait how stable this becomes the next days.

Hi,

I've just had some updates today as well not much but just about every page on 2 different sites have gone for 0 to pr2.

1 site has been up and running for around 5 months and the other has only been around for 3 so quite pleased with that.

Seems to me that the DMOz and google-directory links have now completely vanished from the backlink lists

Its great that public PR has been updated -- but I don't see anything coming out of the "sandbox."

I second that.

I think Google has done a revaluation of PR, that the old PR * about 0.8-0.9 gives the new PR.

That would seem to explain my own results. Traffic has increased but most of my pages (including the index page)have dropped 1 level.

Has anyone any ideas when the 'real' PR change came into effect? My traffic increased about 13 September.

Wow, this is great stuff. Really.
My site got PR7 while it was PR0ed for over 6 months now.

I love it.

My start page here in germany still says 4.285.199.774 sites indexed. I guess the update process can only be valued finished if this changes.

Good to know that djgreg.

Any consensus on the date before which the backlinks added are accounting for the PR now?

One of my sites which received 7 PR7 links [:)] around Sep 15th has actually dropped a PR point, so it must be definitely before Sep 15th.

my good friend so whats the point before the green line increase or decrease me or you where in #1 or #5689
with easy words i never care about my PR0 page that went PR7 yesterday ,because i was there where i wanted to ,be apart of the small green line,...it looks like for many of you that the green PR line is the "green mile"

I hate to do this to you but that is your new PR. The cut off point was much after Sept 15.

McMohan,

Probably, but not necessarily. This toolbar update may reflect a general decrease in PR. I suspect that pages with a low PRx may drop to PR(x-1), but those with a high PRx will only drop to a low PRx and therefore see no change.

No, this is a pagerank update. The index itself and hence the number of indexed pages is updated all the time.

Is this based on any evidence?

Harry, two week old pages are showing PR.

Whether PR has updated is completely irrelevant to how your site will perform in Google.

The question is - how relevant is PR now to Google SERPS?

10+ Year Member



really mixed bag for me -- sites that deserved to be where they were dropped a point, and 2 sites that I don't think should be higher than PR3 jumped from 0 to PR5.

Er, we're talking Toolbar PR rather than Algo PR...

TPR has a lot of good uses. Apart from the obvious - getting links - it builds credibility, helps you get a better price on selling a site, and in some small way gives your competitors an immediate, visual indication that your linking building strategies are working better than theirs'. :)

(If you are selling to webmasters it's amazing how much more likely they are to buy from your PR8 page than your PR2 page especially if they've never heard of you before. That's hard sales, hard money, just for having PR)
