Two factors to note:

1. The Google link: operator only reports a small sample of the links that Google actually sees.

2. PR is (roughly) logarithmic -- that means going from PR4 to PR5 (for instance) will take a MULTIPLE of the same kind of linking that it takes to go from PR3 to PR4. Behind the scenes, Google will use a PR value that is calculated out to many decimal places, and that number of backlinks, if from reputable sites, would definitely move your REAL pr. It just may move from, say 5.0000000001 to 5.9999999999, and still show on the toolbar as PR5

Plus PR is a mess at the moment.

I have a year old site that has had intensive link building and is now starting to rank for fairly competitive terms in the debt industry that has remained PR2 through 2 updates.

Has anyone a site that changed PR at all during these 2 updates? On my sites, only newly added pages noticed changes - from PR0 to quite big values, while old pages, indexed and having PR before February, didn't show any changes in toolbar PR. They rank much better than they used to, of course, because of getting many quality inbound links, but the toolbar keeps showing old values.

I, too, have a nearly 1 year old site which has undergone some nice link building and yet remains a homepage PR2. Newly added pages get assigned decent rank.
