Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Customers really feel bad when the PR is Zero or drops. We all know Google Webmaster Central has no update on PageRank details of the website and does this means Google has no intention to re-consider PageRank again in the webmaster central.
It's almost a year that Google has been very unpredictable about the PageRank and Backlink updates.
If the client is listed well why even bother looking at the green bar?
If you're selling text ads on your site that green bar is very important. If you're exchanging links even more so. That little green bar increases the green exchanging hands in website selling too.
Pagerank isn't all about ranking. It's got a life, and several industries, of it's own.
I think that's the main reason Google are trying to supress it. Sick of people making money off of something they invented ... despite the reverse being true ... ;)

If you are selling links based on the green bar, then your days are numbered because what are you going to do when Google removes the green bar from the toolbar?
