Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
I am in the process of a site migration and I suddenly noticed that my PR had dropped by from 4 to 0. Thought something had gone amuck in the migration, but alas, the green bar was back.
Also saw a PR rise of 0 to 4 on a very new site.
Sad how google can determine my mood....
Traffic and sales seem the same and my 20 top keywords and phases are all in the top 10... so I dont see any ill effects, but why all of the sudden?
I know its a purely psychological thing with that little green toolbar, but dog gone it, its still nice to see...
Googlebot last successfully accessed your home page on Dec 7, 2007.
Does it mean that google decided to grey it up on Dec 7th itself? My all other sites are showing crawl dates of Feb 2008, Anyone with same experience? can anyone throw more light into this?
I recall a post of Adam Lasnik [webmasterworld.com] back in May 2006 :
If you've seen your PR adjusted to a non-zero number OR you've lost significant traffic, this thread does not really apply to you.
If, however, your PR has dropped to zero AND you've not seen any significant loss in traffic from Google, rest assured that this is most likely a PR-reporting (PR on Toolbar) error; while admittedly alarming at first site, it's nothing to worry about. The tail does not wag the dog in these circumstances :)
With that said, I'll be chatting with some colleagues again today to hash out what might be occurring, and I'll report back here with any news.
Have a good week everyone.
