When will Google update?
I think it's started!
No it hasn't, it will be updated on...
How was the update for you?

Have a speculation about when Google will update?
Think the update has already started?

This is the thread for you. Any new threads speculating about the next PR update will hopefully be merged into this one.

Let the fun begin.

Heard that some penalized sites are back in Google. Not the major ones, some minor ones. You think the penalty was temporary?

What do you mean back in? I've only seen PR drops not complete removal or any real changes to SERPS. Do you have any examples?

Yep, it only drops PR but no effect in SERP.

Some directories were removed from SERPs for their own names - Aviva dir for example

Backlinks are Updating

I noticed another Google backlinks update.
http://www.searchbliss.com/seo-tools...-backlinks.asp

Mine seem to always drop or rise a few. I never see any big changes.

Thanks for the heads up-Maybe you don't notice big changes because your backlinks are generally very good.

Shouldn't PR be included in this thread as well?

Although PR should never be your primary focus, since it does play at least a part in the SERPS, it should certainly be something that a site owner should care about.

Quote:
PageRank relies on the uniquely democratic nature of the web by using its vast link structure as an indicator of an individual page's value. In essence, Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B. But, Google looks at considerably more than the sheer volume of votes, or links a page receives; for example, it also analyzes the page that casts the vote. Votes cast by pages that are themselves "important" weigh more heavily and help to make other pages "important." Using these and other factors, Google provides its views on pages' relative importance.

Of course, important pages mean nothing to you if they don't match your query. So, Google combines PageRank with sophisticated text-matching techniques to find pages that are both important and relevant to your search. Google goes far beyond the number of times a term appears on a page and examines dozens of aspects of the page's content (and the content of the pages linking to it) to determine if it's a good match for your query.

What are you talking about? you do know that backlinks and PR are not mutually exclusive concept. PR still and will continue to play important role in SERP rankings especially for long tail keywords which people generally don't target with anchor text.
