Google Toolbar PageRank Works But Not On 3rd Party Tools

Google PageRankThere are tons of complaints in the forums that the Google PageRank went missing in action and is no longer working.

The issue is not with Toolbar PageRank, but rather how 3rd party tools lookup the PR values. Google did make a change, they changed the lookup URL for the PageRank value.

There are dozens of complaints at DigitalPoint Forums, WebmasterWorld and Google Webmaster Help.

The issue, as explained well by David Naylor is that they changed the lookup URL.

Old URL:

http://toolbarqueries.google.com/search?client=navclient-auto&features=Rank&ch=8f3b58e04&q=info:[URLHERE]

New URL:

http://toolbarqueries.google.com/tbr?client=navclient-auto&features=Rank&ch=8f3b58e04&q=info:[URLHERE]

So if you really want to check your toolbar PageRank, use Internet Explorer and it should work.

For the rest of us, back to work.
