PR was on and off for the last hour - now no PR for any site I view - also, the SERPs I keep my eye on just changed...

Not only is the toolbar all grey, suddenly I started showing up at the top page of the SERPs for new keyword combinations.

Google is changing something tonight.

So I'm not alone. No one on the net has any page rank according to my tool bar. It will be interesting to see if it's just temporary or if they have stopped showing PR on the toolbar.

Before the theories start circulating - I suspect the "no PR" thing is just temporary - it's happened before - I just don't remember it lasting this long - coupled with the change in SERPs, I think it might be some new data being merged into the main index...

I'm still noticing issues with PR in the toolbar. Yes, it did clear up for a while yesterday but the issues have returned.

Could this be the sign of something? When was the last "PR update"? How much time was there between the last three "PR updates"?

PR has been flickering in and out of the toolbar, which happens every so often. It's always exciting, because sometimes it coincides with some things changing.

I'm seeing nothing but grey anywhere I go today. Marcia, can you shed a bit more light on the relationship between the PR bar breaking and changes going on behind the curtain?
Thanks in advance;)

I find that refreshing the browser, or clicking into the site then back to the home page brings back the green. Tooblbar seems to be working fine for me so far today.

oaktown, I've just noticed it happening every so often, and a few times it coincided with some changes. So I'm assuming there may sometimes be a slight possibility of a connection. OK - hoping is more like it. ;)

Yeah, usually clicking back and forth will make the PR visible... except for today. Wonder what Google's up to.

Perhaps they're recalculating their "fudged number" algo for the toolbar! ;)

Same here in China. I have tried uninstalled Google Toobar, Google Deskbar, a reboot. Toolbar is still grey. Feel quiet unconfortable with Toolbar showing grey for every site. :)

I'm noticing a significant change in many of the SERPs I monitor... perhaps the toolbar problems are related to this.

oh well assuming Google hasn't banned every site across the net this will fix itself, just a case of waiting it out

That would make a lovely Webmasterworld News Exclusive:

Google Bans All Websites!
Webmasters set fire to their computers

Not since the stock market crash of 1929 have we seen such devastation. Google claims that the entire web had turned to spam...

This did give me a bit of fright though.
Looking forward to change in SERPs which I have not seen yet.

2000 Webmasters jumped out of their windows after discovering their site had been banned by Google.

PR has been grey on all sites (not only mine) since yesterday.

Maybe this could have something to do with the Yahoo entry made yesterday, which probably caused a chain reaction :)
