I’m not entirely sure what’s going on at Google, but it appears that the long over due general PageRank Update is in fact underway. At the risk of entering the echo chamber, I though that you might like to know.
What does that mean for those affected by the recent downdate (as opposed to an update – get it)?
Seems no one is entirely sure. I know that ProBlogger is showing a 6 in the toolbar (when it was a 4), and all the data centres seem to be reflecting the 6.
Andy Beard is ambiguously showing a mix of 3, 4 and 5 in the data centres (he recently took a hit from 5 to 4 to 3), so what the end result will be is anyone’s guess. I just noticed he’s written about Real or Fake PR, and outlines the recent history of many of those popular sites that took a hit – very comprehensive and well worth a look.
But probably the most telling sign is that previously unranked blogs (well, I suppose “0” was a rank), like this one, are now showing a rank in the data centres. It’s not yet reflected in the toolbar.
How do you check your PageRank? Here are a couple of sites that query the PageRank directly from a number of Google Data Centres.
Let me know how you went.
