Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
So i checked the company website today, we have lost our PR 5 pagerank. Wondered if anyone had any ideas about this. I will be brief so i dont drone. Travel site, domain has been around for about 4 years, extremely well indexed. over 500,000 pages indexed. all subpages still have PR of 5 to 3 based on level. all directory structured. And we are still listed in the engines under subpages for specific page terms, like intended. no blackhat stuff, just imbound links from outlying c-names etc. this site has been around for sometime, and doing fine. Really, our traffic hasnt suffered to much because our traffic comes in from everywhere on subpages. Just hoping that it doesnt trickle down to subpage level.
you could probably get it back quite easy - if you make sure all the other pages on the site link to it. try cutting down on the number of links on the homepage. and get rid of any that point away from your site
Please tell me about cutting down on the number of links on the home page. I have a PR5 home page and I would really like to get it higher if possible. Any advice? What type of links should not be on the home page? Thanks in advance for your help.

Pagerank, if you mean green bar, is simply an indication of link quantity. I wouldnt remove any outgoing links that you have placed there for visitors.
Did your pagerank drop to 0? (Which can indicate problems) Is your site still indexed in google (the index page)
If this is all intact and your rankings havent slipped (or dont slip in the next couple of days) I doubt I would worry about it.
One of my home pages has gone from 5 to 3 for no apparent reason. But pages further down the site have gone as high as 6. In most cases these are the pages I'd prefer Google to deliver, so it's not an issue. Saves me worrying about constructing navigation schema if Google takes people to the right page first.
I don't think there is such a concept as "site PR" any more, if there ever was.
After all, its inventors called it "PageRank", not "SiteRank".
