Possible Google PageRank Update?

Feb 26, 2008 • 9:00 am | comments (16) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google PageRank & Algorithm Updates

After reviewing DigitalPoint Forums, I saw about 5 different threads discussing a PageRank update at Google. I am honestly not sure if this is a legit update but it doesn't really matter.

A toolbar PageRank update has no immediate or direct impact on your rankings at Google.com.

Having said that, there are a few threads at the forum on the update but this DigitalPoint Forums thread is the most active at the moment.

I noticed some PR changes on a few sites today, so I did a search to see if anyone else was noticing and found this blog post.

Can't see any updates at the moment, thought it wasn't going to happen for at least another month.

I had an update. My site went up to PR5 for about 3 hours and then slid back to PR4. Talk about a short lived joy. This was the ultimate after trying to get it back to PR5 for a year and a half after it dropped to PR4

I have a client site jumping all round the 1st page of Google over the past couple of days - Positions 4, 8, 10 then 4 again!?

I have seen a PR change on one of my websites. But as far as the rest. No changes so far. Not even in any DC's.

I am seeing changes for sites that I monitor - some are losing a point or two, but are all keeping their rankings at the moment.

As usual my PR0 site is doing the best... :)

"A toolbar PageRank update has no immediate or direct impact on your rankings at Google.com" Does this statement imply that there is a delayed or indirect impact of pagerank on rankings at Google.com? Please elaborate on what you mean by this as I was under the impression pagerank did factor into where a page will end up in search engine results.

I have yet to see any connection between those green pixels (although I just have a text number in FF) and rankings. I'm so over the PR craze already!

One of my website went from 0 to 3 while others have no changes, although they are hosted on the same server.

Remember there are a lot of factors aside from PR value in SERP's. Content, backlinks, anchor text, etc. all play more significant roles IMHO.
