Gone from 3 to 4 on index, 3 on most article pages. Already suspected it would increase as ranking has got a lot easier during the last few weeks or so.

Hoping the PR will move with the domain when we will replace our keyword domain for a branded one. (planning 301 redirects)

Long hours on link development to see my site go from a PR5 to a PR4.

Not thrilled.

I'd notice the update too.
I was surprised that my PR ranking goes from 0 to 5 for a 2-month old blog.

That's impressive, congratulations :)

Do you have your own domain or are you in a subdomain of a large site?

The newer sites I have went up a notch or two or three. The older sites all went down a notch. Go figure.

My 2 month old blog got an amazing PR2! Not surprised though, no link building work yet.

Anybody else expect an increase in PR, and ended up with a lower PR?

Would be interesting to see if the algo changed link criteria a little more than people expected.

I finally went from 5 to 6 after 2 years of building out the site, and getting natural links along the way.

2 years! Yippee!

It said I was due to move up one point for PR. It moved down one point instead.

I can guess which tool you were using :) That tool said my PR will go down, but it went up instead ;)

TbPR makes for a good wager, and just that IMHO.

Expected a pr6 for my main site but it is now showing pr5 instead. Erm, better than dropping though. :>

Were they link exchanges? Google's seems not too keen on link exchanges (but can't outrightly ban them in the webmaster guidelines).

90% of them were exchanges, however we have had quite a few one way links to us from high profile sites with good PR, however as i am ranked 4th on a 30 million+ keyword now (gone up from 9th) i am to be honest, not that worried about PR ranking as it seems to have not affected our ranking in any detrimental way, so all those who say that PR plays a tiny % in ranking i would tend to agree with them on the face of this evidence

Just checking a site of mine that is new and it's a little green.

Is anyone else noticing this?

Looks like Google has unpdated backlink status. my site has galloped to 197 back-links from 30. But lots of links are "similar pages" or my own site. Is there some kind of indication that we have to read from it? Is it a good or bad sign? Anything to worry? Please reply. My older site also shows a v.marginal improvement and lesser urls of my own site.

Hi all,

Few minutes ago I noticed that PR has been updated. I do not see any major moves on SERPs which means that it's just a PR toolbar update.

Please post your comments and share your experiences.

Anyone else noticing a PageRank update? I'm seeing several of my sites shifting (both up and down). It also looks like there was a Link: update and a Directory update. Does Google generally do these updates all at the same time?

I am seeing lots of updated PR on pages on various sites, but not all that I had expected. Hope it is still a work in progress.

Just noticed changes in backlinks & PR. Did not notice any major changes in SERP so far.
