Same here, in the USA. New site launched April 20th is showing a PR5 on index.

Also confirmed, PR update. Sites that I monitor seem to have dropped -1PR.

Yep. Google Ad Planner for AdSense Publishers [webmasterworld.com], a thread started on May 6, is a PR5 now.

Hm, the PR of subpages is becoming stranger and stranger. Everybody tells you that content and user-participation rules. So I created a forum, which got about 100 users in 8 weeks. Now every subpage of my domain got PR, but in the subpages in the forum the toolbar keeps grey (and yes: They are indexed ;-))

< moved from another location >

For what it's worth - and I see it as a prize for my linking efforts - I am seeing a Google Page Rank update.

The funniest thing is that it's my page of links that has taken the biggest increase, going from 0 to 3.

Only increases in PR in my portfolio, not one decrease. Can't remember the last time that happened.

My pagerank fell by 1 to just 1!, Traffic is up and the site still ranks number 1 with sitelinks for some very competitive terms. I can't work it out.

In the last update, I went from mostly PR 4 down to 3. This time, I've regained the 4 on many pages. TBPR may be meaningless, but it makes me feel good to see some gains.

10 year old site... we were a PR5 for the last 4 years (oddly it never changed). Now we are a 4. Go figure... =)

We gain links slowly (on news sites, blogs, and more) every week. We don't do any social networking or promotions though. We've watched two new (less than a year) competitor sites jump to a PR5 simply by self-promotion on all the social sites.

Alas the old school way of making good content and letting the links roll in naturally does not seem to be working... at least for us! ;-)

Oddly, we launched another site 2 years ago. It has barely any inbound links, and it is a PR4. Our older site has thousands of inbound links gained over 10 years, it is a PR4.

Traffic continues to grow, so we can't complain! (though I guess I am complaining... ;-)

In checking new articles I find that every article with an outbound link to a quality source ranks 1 higher than similar articles without the outbound link.

All these new sites with a PR of 5... that's strange.

We haven't seen any changes in our main pages and we have too many subs to check them all.

We all care about the real pagerank.

However, it's interesting that people still believe the PR Toolbar has some relevancy.

I normally see new sites come out of the starting gate with + 1 PR higher than normal, then after update 2 or 3 they settle back to normal.

So given the choice between TBPR 0 and TBPR 10 you would happily accept the 0?

I admit I can occasionally catch myself wearing the proverbial tin hat, but it sure looks like what is displayed in that tool bar is systematically distorted. Its morphed from a real indicator of a sites quality to a program of disinformation aimed at creating confusion, primarily to throw off the link industry.

I think your better off charting crawl rates, than looking at that little green bar to determine whatever that “signal” meant to you.

It's probably been about 3-4 years since I posted in a "PR Update" thread. Just have to say, it's significant when a PR update thread no longer spans 50 pages!
