Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
The homepage has a steady PR3 and around 140 internal links, most of them category pages. Yet, aside from the index, only a handful of the category pages carry any PR (for months now). Being there for over a year now, shouldn't those pages show at least a grey PR bar (PR0)?
Anyone has any experiences with that? What can cause such selective PR passing. I know I shouldn't be too focused on PR but when more than 90% of the sites are "unranked" (not even PR0) and also not ranking well, I start to worry and wonder what could possibly be wrong.
Splitting a PageRank vote of 3 across 140 links could very well give each of those target pages a PageRank of "less than 1".

since you imply nobody knows what up with what google wants to tell me with the gray bar, are you aware of people recovering? adjusting things to impose change?
I don't know of any specific tactics that have resulted in the removal of a gray bar - but they do come and go anyway. I find it frustrating, but not worth a lot of direct attention. I just keep building more value into the site and make sure that I get the word out.
