Google Confirms PageRank Update (New Years 2009)

Dec 31, 2008 • 7:58 am | comments (13) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google PageRank & Algorithm Updates

Over Christmas and the holidays, we reported early signs of a Toolbar PageRank Update. Those reports have now been confirmed by Google's Matt Cutts via Twitter. Matt said about 6 hours ago:

Yes, Google updated our toolbar PageRank values today. Consider this the confirmation.

You can then see other Googler's like JohnMu, "liking this" on Matt's FriendFeed page.

Of course, we have a whole new slew of PageRank update threads and posts now. They include:

The folks over at the brand new Google Webmaster Help section are happy to see their new forum reach a PageRank of 7, in a matter of just weeks.

So there you have it, as expected, the Toolbar PageRank update has been confirmed.

Many say that Google PR is irrelevant, but I for one am here to say that the psychological bump of we just got from and increase in PR is sweet. Makes a guy want to get that darned web site better and better for the next PR review.

Hi, It's getting hard to pass over PR3 here :-) Happy New Year 2009, José

For those that think that GPR is irrelevant - have a look at this - we have gone from a PR1 to PR3 and our (organic google) visitors have gone from around 100 per day, to around 3/400 per day now! Obviously this is also translating in terms of registrations and of course sales ;)

I am listening from so many SEO's whose websites have been dropped on Google this month. All those sites had one thing in common, the keywords stuffed pages. I wonder how Google can delist whole website for some pages.

Is there an offical database anywhere that tells the upcoming updates, or how do people know? Just keeping up with their PR boosts and drops?
