Google PageRank April Update: Most Notice Drop in PR

As much as you explain that toolbar PageRank does not show you a result that you can work with, people still tend to obsess about PageRank. Go ahead and read Danny's PageRank Guide once again. In any event, on Friday we reported about possible buggy PageRank but now there seems to be a wide update in the toolbar PageRank scores.

Most people are noticing a drop of one point, while some are noticing PR0s and others are noticing nothing.

We have threads at Search Engine Roundtable Forums, Search Engine Watch Forums, WebmasterWorld and about a dozen threads at DigitalPoint Forums.

Gabs at Search Engine Roundtable Forums asks if Google is capping the PageRank displayed in the toolbar by a certain value if your site falls within a specific category. Easy enough to check, but I highly doubt it.

When a PR update happens, it doesn’t happen all at once - Google has many ‘datacenters’, and your new PR will ‘percolate’ between those datacentres over the next few days to a week.

I have noticed the opposite. Two of my sites have moved from 4 to 5, which is great for me. I have also seen a jump in my page rankings from Google Page twos to page one positions.
