I've read the posts in Google Toolbar forum, tried it all, still no results.

Anyone have a sure-fire remedy? Has anyone spoken to Google?

TIA - WFN

There are going to be a lot of other opinions, but here's mine.

The grey toolbar PR means exactly what Google says, "Current page not ranked by Google."

Now, the possibilities for this are that Google doesn't as yet know that the site exists. Get some good backlinks as soon as possible.

Or, Google knows that it's there but for some reason does not meet its 'quality' requirements (duplicate content, dead end site, cloaking, etc.).

tried it all, still no results

Google only updates once per month (kind of). It sometimes takes two or three update cycles for changes to 'stick'.

If you're doing everyting right, be patient, build more content, get more links. If there is or was anything questionable get it changed quick and then...be patient.

Not the best answer, just my 2 cents.

This Grey toolbar problem is not just about my site. The gooooogle toolbar does not work even on big sites, it is grey all the time!

I contacted google and they have had others are saying the same thing. I do not work behind a firewall or proxy, and all of my software is completely updated IE6, toolbar, etc.

Gooogle has sent me two emails thus far, so at least they are working on it.

hey WFN, next time google contacts you, just tell them to PR your site at the top of your relative field, and you will consider it even!

While a page is loading the tool tip will read "Display Google's ranking of the current page" and will then display "Current page not ranked by Google" when the page has finished loading.

Recently, I have seen the first tip displayed often after a page has finished loading.

Grey is not OK!

If you had a site in the index with a PR showing for quite a while and all of a sudden one day is shows up grey and not in the SERP's.

You've got a problem.

It all depends on the circumstances.

That's correct - grey usually means not in the index. If you were in the index for more than 2 months and that suddenly happened, it's been removed.

And that aint ok!

Grey is OK if the site is new and just not in the index just yet.
