Exclamation April 2006 Google PageRank Update

I’ve notice on some pages a different PR today. I don’t think that this is a coincidence… Maybe G is doing something.
Is everything ok with your sites?

Thumbs up Confirmed

Yes, that is affirmative. I can verify that PR has updated on toolbar for multiple sites. Good catch!

Thanks Nacho,
The changed seems to be in positive (more PR) and negative (less PR) for some sites. So, at this time some people will be really happy or getting worried.

It’s funny how G makes us be sweating sometimes…

I really don't track those numbers on a day to day basis. I just try to get as many links as possible to each page from other pages (internal and external) that make sense to have. Usually it results in posititive or neutral changes. But then again, that's natural link building 101 stuff

The PR Faerie is sprinkling Green everywhere. At least on pages that used to be 0. I see many pages that now have PR that didn't used to. Blogs seem to attract a ton of it.

I've noticed on our sites PR0s are starting to show handsome PR increases but established PRs haven't moved either way.

Question something strange?

2 sites I run that are completely unrelated had huge PR increases on just the articles index pages. 2 PR ranks higher then any other pages on the sites. Toolbar hiccup?

That’s for sure! One page was PR0 and now it becomes PR4... in just one day!
Sometime ago get PR4 was a complete venture.
Now, it seems to be easier.

I've gone from PR 2 to PR 5. How accurate is the toolbar anyway?

PR lost

I have kept my PR for all my pages, but my links page has lost it's rank all together:

http://www.centrictravel.com/benidorm-links.html

Too many outgoing links?

New pages high PR..

Very strange too.

I noticed that two pages that have just received a rank this time round have come straight in at PR4. The rest of the site hasn't seemed to move except for my links page which I mentioned earlier.

Anyone have any idea how new pages would PR higher than existing (and higher than the homepage too?)

Most of the links pages on one of my sites have lost PR and also their cached copy in Google. All of my other sites links pages are fine.

One site has gained PR in the latest update on all pages except the home page (still PR0). The next level down in the interior pages is PR4! It might be some indication of duplicate content but I am not sure yet.

PR in Denmark

You guys are lucky
In Denmark it is hard enough to get a PR on 5 and that I can't even get

And there is not many webmasters outside Denmark who will link to a page in Denmark in danish...

FeldBum How the h... did you increase your PR from 0 to 7?

It seems to be everything ok, for a short time the PR was down but now it´s normal like before.
