I have a homepage with a PageRank of 8. A second page that is one page deeper off of the home page is scored with a PageRank of 8 (previously a 6 a month ago).
When I follow a link of off the second page to another site, and then navigate back, the PageRank changes to a 3.
Any ideas on what is going on here?
In every case I've looked at, there is something of a redirect going on somewhere in the process. eg: you aren't look at the same pr for the same page.
Even though all of these generate the same page, they are different urls/pages:
long ip address to the site.
short obfuscated ip address to the site.
Google would see one as the real page, and see the rest as duplicate content.
Down into the site, the same thing can happen with directory names.
There are also transparent redirects, js loads, frames, and iframes, that can make the toolbar think you are at a different url even though you are staring at the same content in the browser view port.
this also happens (without redirects?) just about at the end of the update (in my case a few hours ago), when the toolbar Pagerank settles.
Type in my url in the browser window = PR 6, link internally and back = PR7.
(probably what Brett says, different ways of domain.com and domain.com/index.htm but the one already being updated the other not?)
At the moment though everything seems stable at the same PR.
