Google Directory Updated: Penalized PageRank Scores Not Visible

A DigitalPoint Forums thread reports that Google Directory also noticed an update from DMOZ and new PageRank bars. We reported last week on the first PageRank update of 2008, and as Andy Beard points out also, the Google Directory is showing new data.

What is interesting is that the data is from January 8, 2008 and if you look at the Computers > Internet > Web Design and Development > Promotion > Weblogs category, you will notice that the PageRank penalty many sites received are not displayed in the PageRank score in the Google Directory.

For example it seems like the Toolbar PageRank of this site is a PageRank of 4. But if you look at the most recent Google Directory update, this site appears to be a PageRank of 7. Here is a screen capture:

This seems to validate both Sites With Downgraded Toolbar PageRank Still Passing Link Juice and PageRank Goes Down but Google Rankings Aren't Affected. But the true affects, well - Google can really only attest to.

The last Google Directory update we reported on was September 25, 2007.
