Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
The site has most internal pages Toolbar PR 4 but the default page is sitting at Toolbar PR 2.
I dont really mind this, as the internal pages are the important ones, the main page is just a way of getting to these pages, and if the user hits the internal pages first, its a bonus, cause it saves them a click. :)
The site has been up for about 2 months and only recently got PR assigned.
The <RK> of the site said 5 last time I checked.
Go Google! :D:D
I never had a site gain PR that quickly :eek:
I am seeing little change in the SERPS, so I am guessing that somehow whatever we are seeing is just "there". Not sure what affect (if any) it has overall.
My guess is that the landscape of PR is about to change drastically! It will be interesting to see what takes place next. More interesting will be to see how long it takes the gang at the plex to sort it out.
The 4 year old site:
Went from 4 to 5 and is holding
8 Month old site:
3 to 3 and holding
1.5 month old site:
Went from 0 to 6 and now back down to 0 this morning.
Guess I shoulda put that pr6 up for sale on EBay with a 1 hour time limit.
Knew there was something fishy.
Maybe their trying to get rid of the "Sandbox" to freshen up the SERPS a little, but botched the algo on the first try? Now their going back to something older, and it'll take a few days to work the kinks out?
Who knows. It's Google... Land of the perpetual live Beta.
Oh Google, Oh Google,
My traffic trickles,
Please Google, Please Google,
Gimme Greeeeeeen Pixels! ;P
Last year, I registered a brand new domain name. It had a pr6 even without being launched. And it lasted for a while (over 2 months).
I have another domain name, and it recently show a PR5. The strange thing is that I just added a home page, placed a 301 redirect to www version from the start. But www.mydomain.com shows a pr0, while mydomain.com shows a pr5 with some nonexistent backlinks! And I am sure that it will not last.
Did the 301 four months ago.
Some pages since came back in rankings.
In the index all pages are still listed as non-www. Why? I have no idea when there is the 310 redirect to www.
And now today all internal pages are PR0!
What the %$!K! is up with Google now?
What I am able to comment on, is that reciprocal links seem to have been removed from the link: command, inner pages have increased PR, traffic has gone up, new sites seem to be getting, and then in some cases, losing, high PR.
Supplemental issues continue, as it seems are canonical, from comments on here.
So I guess it ain't done with yet, and probably will be some time before it is, if ever :-)
>>>Last year, I registered a brand new domain name. It had a pr6 even without being launched. And it lasted for a while (over 2 months).
It was usually common enough for new sites to get a high PR of say 5/6 on the first update and then for the site to go down to a 4 after a while once it became more established.
Still feel that Google are trying to merge the Mozilla Googlebot index with the old index or it is a slow changeover or something.
Must be more changes - esp Serp changes - and maybe even a Canonical fix one day? (Falls of chair)
So far Google have moved from Normal Googlebot to Mozilla Googlebot indexing with little serp changes (apart from side effect errors) and an inconsistent PR update.
In fact, on the "reseller friendly" dc's listed on the update thread I have ZERO internal pages in the index as far as a "site" seacrh goes.
Amazing what the Google brain trust can do when they put their minds to it :)
Dayo_UK - I think you are right...the site to which I am referring *was* in supplemental hell until a week or so ago. Dayo_UK, if you had to guess, do you think those internal pages will get their PR back?
But Google need to sort out what they are doing at the moment and let the Mozilla Googlebot index take over from the old index IMO.

Looks like there has been a backlink update as well.
I think this is just part of the ever changing data center flux. The back links are up and down like a toilet seat these days. Check again tomorrow and then again the next day and the backlinks will be different again.
