From PR0 to PR8, the greatest step-up on Pagerank history?

When Google updating the Pagerank on June 27th, my blog PR are increased drastically, from 0 to 8, Yes 0 to 8! Perhaps this is the greatest Pagerank step-up on Pagerank history.

I creating this domain on 2010 so this is a very young dot com domain (about a year). Still very little traffic because I did not develop it well (just for my personal notes). I use English language for my blog post.

But what I realized was that every time I update the content then Google will replace all the dates in the search result of my domain name very quickly (all Google's site like on com, co.uk etc.).

So what are the advantages to have a PR 8 blog? and trust from Google?


Note: I still learn English :)

@graeme_p: selling links that passing PR is bad :)

@calvin: but I did it, you can check it using any service available on the net, the result must be the same :)

@indyank: I have Drupal site also that has PR 8, so I am on Blogger is not the reason :) visit the hi**-me page than you will lead to my other PR 8 site.

@Sgt_Kickaxe: yes, and since I use custom domain than the PR will follow my domain isn't? nice.. :)

@piatkow: I build the blog not to reach some specific keywords (at first) but for branding purposes, and its almost about me so I can give you any conclusions. Maybe you can try to search like "Pagerank 8 blog", "Drupal .. ", "own url shortener" since all is new article and let see the result, if in first page than the PR is work great since this is a new article :)

@tangor: I think lot of people still care about it :)

Does anyone still believe in PR fairy dust? (I'm serious!)

Simple Question:
Once again assuming that we know the difference between PR and Toolbar PR - if Pagerank is no longer important to Google why do they try stop people from buying and selling links and why do they tell us this?

I agree, but you do hav the opportunity if you wish.

Its difficult to figure out the moral angle on it. I suspect that in this case sold links would not fool the search engines, but it might be ripping off the link buyers.

not that this is necessarily the case here, but I seem to remember hearing about Google showing false PR on sites from time to time ... as a way to confuse those who would abuse the system ... anyone else hear similar?

and has anyone checked the PR for Google lately? down to 9

@graeme_p: yes I have a big opportunity due to its PR, but since I have high PR than Panda must watch me all day long, the safest is increasing the traffic :)

@jakegotmail: yes if that site do not have enough backlinks than it woul be a mistake :)

I noticed if now the traffic increasing, maybe due to lot of spammer, and my SERP now is much better, so I think if PR is still important metric (even Google said no).

Our PR went up from 2 to 6 after the last update. We still got panda raped, so what does it matter?

indyank, I am not sure if you are implying that any domain hosted on blogger.com gets a PR8. I checked a few custom domains hosted there and they have a mix of greybar through PR5, i.e. whatever they have earnt on their own merits.

After the last PR update / roll back the blog still PR 8, so this is a real PR. Even now the blog show up on Google+ Sparks for specific keyword.

I've seen something like this happen before to a Blogger blog

I remember a lady who submitted a press release to us, announcing that her blog (hosted in Blogger) jumped to PR8 after about 4 or 6 months or so on the Web. Other sites have published her press release.

But I was skeptical looking at how new the site was and how poorly developed it was. We couldn't see enough links to warrant a real PR8. We did not publish her press release.

We checked, and it seems that the PR showing in her blog was the PR for Blogger, not for her little space within Blogger.
