I have not worked in the web area for a while and I was just looking into pagerank of a site I was helping a friend with. She had a pr of 1, and another friend that I checked had a pr of 0. Both these sites are all original content, the former a whats-on guide, the latter a photography site.
Has there been a serious change in the last few years? I remember back in the day the lowest pagerank I saw was maybe 2 - and that was for MFA sites... seems like the scale has lowered significantly.
