Google PageRank Updating This Morning? October 2010

Oct 18, 2010 • 8:15 am | comments (14) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google PageRank & Algorithm Updates

I am seeing some early reports of a Google Toolbar PageRank update this morning. There are threads with discussion on the topic at DigitalPoint Forums and Google Webmaster Help. Plus if you search for [pagerank] on Twitter, you will see lots of people saying their site's PageRank has been updated.

There is currently no thread at WebmasterWorld, but I suspect one to pop up some time this morning.

The last reported PageRank update was in September, but it was reportedly minor. Last year, Google did a toolbar PageRank update in October 2009, and typically Google stays on schedule with these.

Again, toolbar PageRank has no direct influence on your search rankings. This is all about egos and making one feel happy or sad. So don't take the update too personally.

Forum discussion at DigitalPoint Forums and Google Webmaster Help.

It will definitely make me SAD if google doesn´t update the PR of my blog this time!!!! It´s easy to say not to worry about the PR, but when loads of other webmasters reject interchanges with your site because of IS depressing :(

I agree with Mundo, even though I know PR doesn't really mean much, my site misses out on a lot of opportunities because it is newer and doesn't have a high PR. Other sites and webmasters don't want to associate with a PR 0 site.

Don't see any PR changes on my sites. Also, link to Digital Point forum is not working. It says: "No Thread specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator" Neither the Twitter search is significantly displaying any information regarding PR Updates, just few references to your post: Google PageRank Updating This Morning?

Yesterday the main page of had PR of N/A, because it's really new. Today it has PR0, so there was definitely some change. Not a big change, though. just the minor periodic update we see from time to time.

That link to google webmaster forums. The guy had actually meta noindexed his site. No PR was updated at all.

No significant Pagerank update has happened in the past 6 months. I believe it will happen by the end of October ;)

I am excited of my sites' page rank status. Does google only update page rank once a year? My mind is really wondering on how many times that google will update.

You are right, nothing really major...Never felt a drop or increase in my traffic.
