Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I created a site a year ago, and spent the past twelve months working for many hours every day accumulating relevant links and adding unique, handwritten content.
Today my reward finally came. The site has gone from a PR3 to a PR6, and all the subpages (more than 100) have gone from PR0-PR4 to PR5. Backlinks have increased from 1,200 to 1,800.
I didn't expect this. <paraphrased: Very few sites in my market have even a PR6. Even one of the widely recognizable market leaders is only a PR7.>
My example is not unique. Page Rank offers us all something to work toward. It's also recognition that we're doing something right.

There is, however, some 44 different Class-C IP address [webmasterworld.com] blocks now active... for a total of more than 700 unique IP addresses.
Anyone else seeing this?
Additionally; as others have mentioned: You might want to discredit the value of that little green bar, but if used properly, it can tell you a lot about your site navigation.
As the owner/webmaster of a large PR8 site, I find these updates very valuable.
On a site that I've been particularly concentrating on for the past couple of months to get it back on page 1, it is currently fluctuating between position #10 - #11 and sometimes is not there at all! (very scary)
Can anyone give me a reason why the site would disappear at all when all the sites around it remain the same... Is anyone else experiencing similar that could point me in the right direction...
A brief history... my client has two sites, both (PR4) sat on completely different IPs, selling the same product but each site is optimised for a different set of his industry keywords... One site is #1 in Google for one key phrase and #10/11 for the other, more competitive, key phrase...
On the site occupying the #1 postition, all the pages, apart from the homepage, link to the homepage of the #11 site... No pages on the #11 site link to the other...
My question is this; Would this set up lead to any penalising, point deduction or negatives of any sort from Google?
My site is going from a PR6 to a PR8.
This is how the "SEO Future PR Tool" shows my site:
And for anyone that's newer than me to this field, I will tell you this is my experience... I stopped looking for link partners over a year ago. If you write good content, then sites will link to you. My strongest links (from .edu and .gov) were all obtained via natural linking. I created useful tools to supplement the content and I did all this with the USER, not search engines, in mind.
>>>PR8 ...PR9.....how the hell do you guys get that? :)
Either you guys have some seriously good sites or deep pockets to buy powerful links! Either way, congrats (whatever ranking is affected or not it must be good to see)!
Solid site, tons of fresh content and links from sites like WSJ, NY Times, Fox News...
