New PageRank Update


It's happening again: Google (re)calculates PageRank for the pages in the index. From what I've seen, only new pages get a PageRank, those that already have one don't get an update. At least for the moment. Google will definitely update PR for all the pages, but they've started with the new pages first as they have fewer backlinks.

A great site where you can check the PageRank of a page is Live PR. The site shows you the rank from many Google data centers and it uses Ajax for that.

Although the value of PageRank for webmasters has been decreasing, a PageRank update it's still an exciting event. The last major update was in February.

  2. Sounds like this might have something to do with all that abuse of the pagerank and adwords thing awhile back.

    I see all PRs are set to 0 now.
    I was checking some of my sites around the interwebs, then noticed the little annoucement at the top...

    Hopefully it won't happen much again, abusing Google.. terrible thought! >_<

  4. How about a page rank update in July 2008? It's been now almost 3 months since there haven't been any movement in this matter. By the way, Alex, the tool you provide above seems not to work anymore. Are you (or anyone else) aware of any good page rank checking tools?

  9. Pagerank as such has little value. Generating good quality content that keeps people returning to your website and spread the word, does.
