The toolbar has been updated for all my sites and client's sites.

I always get quite excited checking out the PR's of my sites and more especially my client's sites. My client's blog which was made live the first week in November 2009 is PR 3.

We approached one particular South African blog with a high PR for a backlink and got it for free - it's paid off quite nicely, both with traffic and with the PR!

It's great when a plan comes together!

  • Have a speculation about when Google will update?
    Depends upon which update you're talking about.
  • Do you think there has been a backlinks update?
    I haven't checked for over a week, so couldn't say.
  • Do you think there has been a PR update?
    12/31/09, reportedly, from a trusted cohort, that manages MANY sites.
  • Are you seeing Google fluctuations?
    Actually, less now, than during the initial Caffeine rollout.
  • Do you think there has been an algorithm update?
    I am told no, but that one is imminent.

Google is updating PR

FInally google is updating his PR...
So it ids time to see if my link building campaigns worked.
So far My main website has PR5 but I invested way too much money and time.
Most of them got between 1-3 and I did not spend a dime...
I wondering if that was worth it...
Anyway did you notice the changes?

I can't stress this enough: Don't mind the PageRank!

You should make sure your site has quality content and that it is regularly updated.

Most of us are aware that PR is not an important tool but even then we try our best to get a high Page Rank.

What about when it comes to selling links? - paid per post? - selling advert?
it may do not matter for the position but it does matter!!!

One of my website has been promoted to PR0 to PR2 and other one PR0 to PR1. I am quite happy with this PR update.

My blog has been updated as well from PR 3 to PR4. I think it has a lot to do with content updates.

If your Google pagerank dropped, that means you either lost a bunch of links, or the value of the linking site has dropped.

Instead of focusing on building links, focus on building content. With good content, people will link to your site.

I agree with Kev. If you are linked with Poor sites you can be penalized .
You should try to share links with god quality sites and having good PR.

When I first started my first dating site 3 months ago, I exchanged links with any directory going, I was a novice at all of this, new everything about computers, but nothing about marketing, I have learnt such a lot, now I only exchange links with sites that have page rankings, through mozilla I have got the add on for page ranking, so I know what rank each site is. When google one PR on the 31st December, I only got PR 1 , but I was pleased as I was a novice, all my sites got PR1 and my blog got PR3

It happens to me too probably the one you are linking has drop its PR as well or probably Google has not fully absorbed all your backlinks ...Just dont lost hope it happens to me before but I was able to recover because I have just continued gaining more backlinks for my blog

I think it's better to focus on developing high quality content for your blogs because it's better to have blog with lots of traffic instead of just high PR value.
