I'm seeing PR changes on old sites and new green bars on newer sites.

Thanks for the green Google!

sandpetra,

You may have noticed that no one refers to specific ways of viewing the PageRank update. This is because this forum does not allow the naming of names nor the posting of addresses for such devices.

It is easy to figure this out for yourself. Just Google it. A query like Data Center Page Rank or Future Page Rank should do it.

Another option is to visit one of the many SEO forums where members can be more specific.

From the Forum Charter

No Tools sites or urls please The explosion of Google related free and commercial site tools has opened a flood gate of url dropping to "tools" sites. Therefore, we request you don't post links to or mention specific "Google tools" (there are dozens if not hundreds of them now as a result of the Google API).

Yes its gone now. It was on the datacenters mentioned earlier in the thread.

Maybe they need to fix how it was crewed up as also mentioned above. Or maybe they'll roll it out again in a few minutes.....

Very strange .... it is definitely gone now. The sites I saw it on were brand new sites too - so it wasn't old data that crept back on some dc's as can happen from time to time.

I checked the dc's this time ;)

Well it was certainly there seoArt. Thanks for the heads up! Now hopefully it will roll out again over the weekend.

4th of July weekend. Google always seems to update during major holidays.

And for those that don't know how to change your toolbar PR datacenter do as follows:

Find your hosts file usually located at WINNT>SYSTEM32>DRIVERS>ETC and based on earlier information put the following in.

64.233.179.104 toolbarqueries.google.com

Or you can use one of the following (based on earlier IP reports) in place of the above.

64.233.171.99 toolbarqueries.google.com
64.233.185.99 toolbarqueries.google.com

Save your hosts file and either reboot or go to a command prompt and type ipconfig /flushdns.

Hope this helps!

For a MAC or linux

/etc/hosts

Add one of these entries to the Hosts file:

toolbarqueries.google.com A 64.233.171.99
toolbarqueries.google.com A 64.233.185.99
toolbarqueries.google.com A 64.233.179.104

For linux just drop the "A" record

I'm not sure if I remember correctly, but didn't Matt Cutts say there would be a Pagerank update after Big Daddy was complete. Does anyone else remember him saying something along these lines?

Big Daddy was completed back in March and, yes, there was a PR update after that. Good thought though.

Yes, but the update in March was not a proper update as it did not update the PR of existing pages - just new pages.

Yesterday my pages were all PR5. Today they're all PR0. Still getting all the traffic, more even. Still ranking #1 for all my phrases. My other sites have about the same PR they did before. It's just this one. Weird.

--- Yes, but the update in March was not a proper update as it did not update the PR of existing pages - just new pages.

And those new pages were given a ridiculously high PR. Which is probably why google will take their time on this update... It seems BD uses a different methodology for computing PR, and, like many other BD things, it seems to be buggy.

Yeah, that PR was really a lot higher than I expected. Many sites didn't seem to change, but some sites shot up a lot higher than they should have. I am hoping that this is a true, full PR update coming. Not that PR matters. ;)

I have been watching a site I put up in March with articles added almost every day since its launch. Still not showing any PR on the 10 datacenters I am watching.

I just now saw digg.com showing a PR0 on several DCs. I think Google is playing around with the knobs again today.

My site has been stuck at PR four for three years, today i looked and it's at PR0. Google has actually started to return pages to the index that have been supplemental since March though and my traffic is going up from it's dismal low. Is this some kind of penalty unfolding or just more gremlins in Google's system?

Me too!

Some internal backlinks are finally showing up. I am hoping the hell we have been in for over a year is getting close to being over.

This is based on fairly old data, I don't have enough info to trace it back but the snapshot is over a month old (I don't know how that compares with other updates, I'm not one for watching too closely).

Number of backlinks seem to have gone down 75%! Does this mean that PR will be reduced also?

I don't think it's accurate data yet. I'm seeing backlinks cut in half, but PR increasing across the board.

Thanks spander! was thinking it was me only. I've been working reeeeeally hard on my site. would be terribly discouraged if there was no overall improvement!

added :

oK.. this is nuts... a new blog I started 4 months ago is up to PR4 from PR0. My main site is stuck at PR2. This cannot be correct! I've hardly done anything significant on my blog for it to be worthy of PR4!
