Do you 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?

You may want to start with a basic understanding about Google updates before posting in this thread.

Yeah, they did that, but my PR for one site is still the same, PR2....

It is funny, because my PR is the same for over a year now for one particular site. Also it is funny, because i've got basically thousands of backlinks since the last update. I've got a lot of backlinks from pages with PR4-5 (not just root domain PR, but actually inner pages). So it should be at least PR3 in the worst case scenario...but still it's the same PR2....

Obviously i don't care about that PR too much, but still it is kind of weird...However, my rankings increased drastically since the last summer, so not sure what is wrong with my PR.

However another site increased from PR2 to PR4 and i even wasn't doing any link building for it...Maybe that is the key, i should stop doing link building for that PR2 site as well, so maybe my PR will rise for it as well...

Edit:
BTW the update was confirmed on Twitter by Matt Cutts

It looks like that Google Page Rank updated by yesterday.
And my PR decreased from PR3 to PR2.

Are you concerned about Google PageRank or are you concerned about your position in the search results and conversions from your visitors?

Yes, you are absolutely correct.
Thank you for the light.

I should care more about my customers.
I just check some keywords position in the search engine, even my Google PR decreased, the position still good.

I haven't checked my PR in years as it's just a number. If you have no traffic, your website is a waste of server space. Of course the PR updating will help folks who sell links/banner ad's make there money but focus on traffic and don't chase PR.

Don't think if pagerank is still a viable measure.

It is not. Once the toolbar was updated it was out of date already. Everyone is just excited because Google finally updated it. It's just nice to see that little green bar move up.

My 3 months old website also got PR2 (unexpected). But the site which I was expecting at-least PR1 didn't get any PR.
Though PR doesn't matter now a day, only thing matters is position in search engine and amount of traffic.
My PR0 site is getting more visits from Google than the PR2 site.

I am showing a major Google update to day (17th December), according to http://www.rankranger.com/rank-risk-index

It hasn't hit my site personally as I only do white hat stuff, but there are grumblings around that EMD's are making a return. Can't really provide much info atm. Could just be a panda refresh or something.

I wasn't talking about the PR update. If you look at the rank risk index, I was talking about the major movements yesterday. Also referring to this http://www.seroundtable.com/google-e...ter-17828.html
