When I checked the homepage of that domain, I saw a PR of 7. This catches me by surprise because the site was just finished four or five days ago. Upon looking into other sites, I'm also seeing a much higher level of PR. Things like PR 5's becoming 7's, etc.
This is based only on what I'm seeing via the toolbar on my home machine. Certainly not as robust as my work computer, but still - from what I can tell, this is odd and has not happened before.
Anyone else noticing this?
Either the Toolbar is guessing PR for unknown domains now (maybe just some versions), Google are calculating PageRank in an odd way, or the Toolbar is getting this month's PageRank before any of Google's servers show this month's backlinks. or jammer's suggestion
Do these URLs seem to rank well, and is the Toolbar PageRank consistent with the links that point to these domains?
aspdaddy, do you get a grey PR bar if you go to a non-existent domain?

Clearly, this is not an assigned PR value for the site.
Just closed out all IE windows, and checked it. Toolbar was grey. Went then to Google, then to that page, showed a PR of 10.
Since early this morning it's been flipping between PR 4 and PR10 on the toolbar, and is #10 for a really competitive (worldwide) keyphrase. I mean, I'm not complaining :) but it can't be right, definately some kind of weirdness. One thing I recall is I did write Google this month to enquire if this page had been banned
Using ie6 browser whenever I go on online with my bookmarked page I get a pr7.
Then whenever I go to my site the 7 remains. I would then go to a page within my site and the rating would still be the same. Now if I go back to my index page only then does the pr shows up correctly. This applies to all the links here-after.
I've have been experiencing this for several months.
Incidentally the bookmarked page now have a pr8 this morning
I have a domain, which has only been crawled the index.html page by googlebot, and all of a sudden I get a pagerank of 8 in the toolbar for my site.
I tried from both home and work, and sometimes I get a 6, othertimes an 8.
if i type link:domain.com in google, I get 0 results, and same with allinurl:domain.com
The only thing I can think of is either the Toolbar is seriously buggy, or it's using the latest update results, newer than the database google.com uses.
Today - consistently - it is back in at PR3. Doesn't matter where I have been before or after.
However pages one link down on the site still have grey bar, when you would expect them to have at least PR2.
I think there is some pre-update provisional PR-ing going on.
