Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I have a small local directory site with a home page PR of 2.
The main categories (which only contain subcategories and no external links) have PR1. The Subcategories that have many external links all have PR2, yet these pages only have 1 incoming link from a PR1 page.
How can a single link from a PR1 page result in PR2?
Normally I don't care about PR. But I'm happy to see my site alive and to see something going on at google.
Interesting: Some of the subcategories on my site went up to PR 5 - same level as my main entry site.
I have no idea what bluefind.com is and I suspect you're advertising your own site in which case your reference will be removed instantly but the site looks rubbish and also seems to be banned from google too.
Unfortunately, some of us (if not quite few!) know very good what bluefind is, as we paid 'em money for inclusion.
To me personally, more than my own sites PR (which is quite predictable, coz those are mine and I kinda know what to expect!) is important whats the new PR of pages where I submitted and most importantly paid for inclusion!
this is a PR update only. I hope a regular Google update will follow soon.
There's a backlink update in progress as well (which usually happens more regularly than (TB)PR updates and independantly of them).
In addition, there are quite a few changes in the SERPs (I've seen a few spam sites get booted so far today, as well as a few others being downgraded, presumably due to PR loss / backlink loss).
Yeah, this has been happening since the last PR update.
Not sure what it means. My sites which had this problem last update are now fixed (i.e. homepage PR > subcats PR) but new sites which have had their PR update are showing subcats PR > homepage PR
mmm... strange indeed
And I have many cases with deep pages having higher PR than the front page - I have heavy linking from all pages to the main index, but also I have many outbounds to deep pages, so I'm not surprised.
Isn't the PR update simply google publishing numbers that already were in effect?
