Does anyone else see the toolbar greyed out for all sites? I'm not getting anything.

"I wouldn't have expected 400 posts over a (U.S.) holiday weekend because people couldn't check the green bar."

Says a lot, GG, doesn't it?

post # 49 from a Mr B Tabke
"The toolbar pr indicator has been offline many times before. It's just a "we are working on it" glitch... "

It pays to listen to those that know. I had a great time whilst all this was going on!

Agreed. Google removes PageRank and it spawns a 400 page thread.

Control objective achieved.

I will now avoid doing business with all sites that quote a pagerank, as the reason why I should buy their service or product.

Night all

PageRank is working on the Google toolbar but not on all sites on the FireFox plugin. Whats up with that?

PR is back but I before I saw some SERP update (thanks god less spam!) but now results seems to be rolled back to the previous SERP :( .a bit messy....

Is this normal until new SERP sticks on all data centers?

Had my laptop stolen. Fired up the new one on Thursday. No PR display, so decided I really didnt need to download the foolbar. Haven't missed it a bit. Now I guess I'll see if I really have a PR addiction like so many here. On the PR wagon for 7 days and counting...

I'm still going to heed my own "hunch" and cease all of my PageRank related efforts.

This was a wake-up call for me, and the way that I've been marketing my sites and my clients will surely change (for the better).

Cheers,

Itís not about the PR green-o-metre itís about change. This is what all the fuss is about. Any major change in Google could have a drastic short term effect on many online businesses. If the brain child Google's vanishes for 3 days without notification, cause for concern and anticipation for a shake up should be high.

Execuse me, but why does Google put a PR display in the first place? Normal users do not care much about the PR shown, while black/whitehats SEOers use the PR display to plot their link-buy-sell business plan, which always manipulates Google SERPs. I think Google should disable the PR display from toolbar and Google directory, get back to their very old algorithm and tweak the PR formula a little bit to overcome the post-"very old agorithm" link-buy-sell businesses.

Sorry if bringing an old topic, or if this is not the right forum to comment at.

Hopefully it has but to all of those who (after the event) commented on the fact that this was no big deal you should really take a reality check. Half of the SEO business has been based on that little green bar for the last two or three years. If and when it goes it will be a highly significant event so do not downplay it.

Another reason that it generated so much comment was that once again, Google chose to say nothing about the problem. PR indeed! If they had a status report on their home page they could tell people when things are gubbed and there would not be so much speculation (or panic on some occasions.) ;)

Strange thing is that I see it pretty much everywhere except for webmasterworld...

Sorry if this was said already but 45 pages is a lot to read through...

This 478 message thread spans 16 pages: 478
