Have a speculation about when Google will update?
  • Do you think there has been a backlinks update?
  • Do you think there has been a PR update?
  • Are you seeing Google fluctuations?
  • Do you think there has been an algorithm update?

I think there has been a major change just 2-3 days ago.

I've seen my site go from 200/day and climbing steadily daily, to basically 1-2/day hits from google search. I can still find my pages buried at the end, but now it's basically like starting over for me.

None of these items speak to whether or not Toolbar PageRank (TBPR) has been updated. Only a view of what is there displayed can say.

Furthermore, TBPR is not a factor in the SERP algorithm; that uses Actual PR, which is continually updated.

I'm not talking about a TBPR update, we are talking about the overall google algorithm update. I believe it's been more than a year in the making but unsure when it went live. I'm really thinking it went live 2 days ago. I feel the changes are quite unfair as if they are trying to target content farms, they really missed on my site as all my content is written by myself, but we had planned to add another to staff soon...

Hopefully changes go forward and they can learn from what has already happened.

The Farmer update (Panda) seems to have caught more people in the net than it intended to.... http://www.v7n.com/forums/google-for...hm-update.html

Considering that 1) the only externally visible concrete evidence of any "update" is that of Toolbar PageRank; 2) that Actual PR is continually and invisibly updated; and, 3) that the SERP algorithm itself is invisibly modified an average of once a day, no, I did not realize that.

I had to re-read that very slowly in order to catch the word "algorithm" in the 5th item. The earlier items created a "PR" mindset.

Might be helpful to insert "SERP" before "algorithm."

I was aware they were working on a major update, I just didn't hear about the release until it hit my site.

Appreciate the links, still the only clue I can glean from most articles about the change is to focus more on social media sites. Anyone else think that's right?

Since you've already started your own thread about this at http://www.v7n.com/forums/google-for...-randomly.html , best to continue the discussion there.

I've seen PR change last month on one of my domains.
This month I have seen changes to my search hits. My main site went up to 30+ searches coming from Google. Even one of my new sites has received some hits from Google right from the start.

Possible PageRank Update March 2011

It is rumored by various forums webmasterword and DigitalPoint has already started the second update pagerank of this year 2011 . The famous pagerank green bar of the google toolbar (google toolbar).

Google recently confirmed that we need not heed the bar, but still today there are still many people who use it as currency for exchanging links ....

So when he is gone well for him and no, do not worry ... Spain has anyone noticed any changes in PageRank??

My page rank is the same for all sites. At least to me it has changed nothing.
In terms of SERPS for certain keywords do not climb at all, while for others I feel a positive spin.
