Our homepage has dropped from 7 to 6, but several new pages, including our links page, now have fair PR where previously they had none.
We have experienced some extra #1 positions on Google for competitive keywords over the last few days too. Overall, Google's current updates seem to be doing us more good than harm so far.
Our main competitor's homepage PR has dropped from 6 to 5, so I can live with the drop on ours for the moment...
The cut off point was much after Sept 15
Macro, I guess you missed the point I was making. The pages I have added around 22nd are showing green. But, I was referring to back links passing the PR, assuming the links are not sandboxed. My site was PR 5 for all the pages (including the home page) and now the home page is still PR 5 and inner pages are 4. I guess the 7 PR7 links achieved around 15th Sep, havent' still been accounted for and need to wait till the next update.
Nope this figure has shown up for several months now, whereas it regularly increased after every crawl in the past. The number of indexed pages is definitely a lot higher as a search on e.g. "+the" reveals.
I dont want to warm up this 32-bit-stuff here again but we should expect this figure to change to far over 5 billion the next days, unless google has done an intermediate, panicking beta-version-PR-update in order to prevent webmasterworld-webmasters from telling the press it has severe technical problems *g*.

I am forgetting myself here, the idea of measuring anything today with Google seems to be a guess at best.
I am certain that PR is not accurate.
The backlinks are certainly not accurate (I have a site that shows 10 backlinks, 5 are DMOZ clones, no mention of Dmoz or the Google Directory as backlinks.
That is the most accurate statement in this thread. Google is still hiding your most important backlinks - at least from every site I checked (including dmoz/google directories).
I'm getting more visitors now than I was 3 months ago for many of these sites.
Don't know why people are getting so excited. Absolutely no real suprises if you think about it.

A site that is about a 5 weeks old just got a PR3 on the home page, which seems about right. But, I just noticed that a page I just put up this week on that same site has a PR4. That seems odd.

From this, I think that PR8's will be a bit harder to achieve from now on. It is better that way, since some PR8's out there were truly garbage and didn't deserve them.
It will be interesting to see how long it takes to do another update?Is it a quarterly thing now?
I have about two thousand pages which previously did well in the SERPs and had a PR of 0, they now have a PR of 4. Problem is the SERPs haven't changed a bit. Bottom line- PR does not mean that much.
Nah, and IMO PR display is royally screwed up anyway.
Guess this will put an end to the folks who were claiming the sandboxlagpenalty was realted to PR.
<<I'm seeing lots of sites loseing pr PR.>>
Yah, just about everything has dropped here. Can't say I care too much...
In response to Bonusbana and Walrus concerns, simply no. PR updates on all my sites showing different PR ranging from 1-4. These are fairly new and small sites and are all hosted under the same host.
I didn't see anyone else mention this possibility, does this make sense?
