backlinks changing too. I'll never understand their backlink listings.. I've added dozens in the last few months (quality ones too) and every link update it's showing fewer and fewer - this one by about 30.

At least the PR stayed the same.

Not only is newly updated PageRank showing in the Toolbar, but for very new sites, TBPR is already showing.

In two cases, the domains were purchased on the 4th of June, with index pages going up the same weekend for design development. Content went up by the middle of June in a couple of /subdirectories/ and those are also showing PR. Google would have had the index pages because of them being online by the 5th, but not the others, not until the 16th of June.

Nice and quick!

Looks like PR is getting harder to maintain. Yahoo home page down to a PR9.

Yep. I just quickly checked a number of established sites I wouldn't have expected much change in backlinks. Many have dropped in PR one notch.

The point isn't the SERPs ( for me ) it is the sale of links valued on PR to people who still buy based on that.

I don't think so. I saw a change in the SERP yesterday for few hours, but then it switched back again today.

I went from a PR=0 to a 2 on a url that is only pointed at the index page. huh?

The url is also only two months new.

I noticed in the Google Directory that my PR was 3 for quite sometime before the actual TB update showed me at a 3. Up until today my site showed PR=4 on the TB. A PR prediction tool said I would be up to a 5.

Fortunately there are more pressing things for me to worry about than G messing with my PR. I find the whole game fascinating really. Google is great comp.

All I can say is #*$!?

Here's what it was about a month ago for my low traffic but "main" site:

homepage: PR5
interior Page A: PR6
interior Page B: PR5 or PR6

Then, up until yesterday:

homepage: PR4
interior Page A: PR3
interior Page B: PR3

Today:
homepage: PR5
interior Page A: PR4
interior Page B: PR4

However, I added a blog to a subdirectory of the site a few months ago and its main page is PR5

What really is disconcerting to me is what looks for now to be the loss of the PR6.

That page has been there since 1998 or so, and the site has been there since before google was founded. I've got a Top Pick from DMOZ, a link from a PR5 Apple page, a link from an article in an industry magazine that five years later still brings clicks, and various and sundry other high-quality links from established industry sites. Page B is similar.

It might have something to do with something I did, or a 302 redirect problem, or because I haven't had link growth for a few years, or this might just be a temporary glitch. But, at least the blog looks good.

My main blog on another domain that has large numbers of low-quality links from other blogs' internal pages and which gets fair traffic is still PR5.

Two second-tier blogs went from PR3 to PR4.

Some directories I set up have the PR I'd expect.

Sorry for the whining, but I sure hope the PR6 comes back.

Irrelevant, but still... lots of dmoz cats seem to have dropped. If you've relied on Dmoz supplying your highest PR link, you'll definately be seeing a drop by a notch or two.

All my newly launched sites got PR now. And my project I'm building slowly for half a year, that partially gone out of sandbox about month ago, went up from PR2 to PR3. I expected better, as it ranks so pretty. It also has PR3 on all 2nd level deep pages and PR2 on all 3rd level pages, so I obviously have to rething internal linking structure - however most of the traffic I get from more specialized queries related to 2nd level pages, so maybe it's not so bad to have so much PR transferred deeper.

My older sites hold on their good PRs and provide good support for the new ones.

Weird here... I've got 2 new sites. Homepage is PR3 while internal pages are PR4 mostly.

I've got all of the external links to my sites link to the homepage.
