hmmmm I'm don't think "GOOGLE made it more difficult". Don't forget that the PR scale is only from 0 to 10, which means that it will, naturally, be more and more difficult to increase your PR because the internet grows everyday. So the number of backlinks needed to gain +1 PR will always be higher.
I even can find an old website given a PR0, like if it was a rollback..
I think that Google is going even deeper in the sneakyness to loose our poor souls.
One thing is sure....this new visible PR value does not sound right to me at all.
I see it all clearly now. The future PR tool that shows you all data centres is very usefull.
First impression of this update is most odd. A well established site i know just went from a 6 to a 5, likewise a number of others i know of.
I would say an old 6 is worth a 5 now with a 5 worth a 4 etc, its perhaps not as basic as that but certainly i think the range is harder to climb.
I did expect three PR6 sites i know of to move to 7s based on their backlinks yet they remain as 6.
This will be interesting - The site that fell from a 6 to a 5 that was an authority, i now understand why a directory has knocked it off the top spot in Big Daddy serps as that directory is a 6. It does look like big daddy is taking into account this PR change
I Google Directory, sorted by PR it has had PR4 since, and I was quite sure to get a PR4 or eve PR5 in this update. Still it lingers around 1 or 2 for most datacenters. But in Google directories I clearly see a PR4!
There has to be more to come!
