Obligatory Google PageRank Update Notification

Google PageRankAs many of you know, I am not a huge fan of obsessing over Google's PageRank score as shown in the Google Toolbar.

But whenever there is a Google PageRank update in the toolbar, I feel obligated to report it. Why? Well, as per our purpose, we cover what SEOs and SEMs are discussing in the discussion forums. Whenever there is a PageRank update, SEOs really spend a lot of time and energy discussing it.

So after almost 6 months, Google has finally updated the toolbar PageRank values. At least that is what everyone is reporting in the forums. Personally, I did not look - but based on all the threads and posts, it seems like a global PageRank update was indeed pushed out.

The last one was about 6 months ago, and this comes about a month since Google's Matt Cutts said a PageRank update is coming soon.

So maybe Google will start updating the PageRank values twice a year instead of quarterly and before that, monthly. Google, I hope, will continue to downplay PageRank.
