That said, mars is correct in saying pagerank is updated more regularly than that.
The last toolbar pagerank update was at the beginning of October
On your website, perhaps....
Or perhaps the words in my previous mail didn't make sense.
Be careful with such black and white pronouncements - they are seldom correct and if they are, they need supporting evidence...
But PR doesn't mean you will have traffic. A site I put up in August has PR5 but close to zero Google traffic and searching for the name of the site brings up several pages with links to my site before my site is displayed. This is what they call the Google "sandbox."
Yahoo! also has a sandbox, but it expires faster, the same site mentioned above is now getting some Yahoo traffic (but alas not very much).
How accurate is the PR calculator that people here on WW refer to? I believe it's Brett's.
I entered most of the page ranks of sites linking to mine, and the calculator showed that my site should have a PR of 5. However, for the last several months it's been stuck at 2 on the toolbar.
where do you find this pagerank calculator?
My advice to you - forget PR.
I don't particularly care about PageRank(TM). It isn't at all important these days unless you are running a directory selling high PR links. And to be totally honest - as of Dec 2004 it rarely makes a difference to your rank in Google.
Why is everyone so fixated on this poxy PR? It really is almost totally worthless (at least if you are trying to buy it).
Ranking highly in Google doesn't come that easy and things aren't about to change. Honest!
It takes years of hard work. Sorry.
Oh, really? From personal experience that's relatively recent I know you can get to the top of a somewhat competitive serp based on pr and internal anchor text links. And I don't think the anchor text would do it without the pr to fuel it.
My question was simply: where do you find this pagerank calculator?
