Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
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!
this PR has been already calculated into SERPS...weeks ago.
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.
Here's what it was about a month ago for my low traffic but "main" site:
interior Page A: PR6
interior Page B: PR5 or PR6
Then, up until yesterday:
interior Page A: PR3
interior Page B: PR3
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.
My older sites hold on their good PRs and provide good support for the new ones.
