Earlier today I reported on the Google Backlink August update but I noted that PageRank has not been updated. There has been chatter in some of the forums on PageRank updating at the Google Directory.
Let me clarify. It is of the opinion of some people that Google is now showing a more recent PageRank value in the Google directory then what the Google Toolbar is showing. Based on a post by DigitalPoint, where he says "Google directory has this forum at PR7 and all my tools (deeplinks) at PR7 (all up from PR6). www.digitalpoint.com still PR7 though."
The DigitalPoint forums was never a PR7 and is current a PR6, but the directory shows them as a PR 7.
