pagerankExcited? Upset? Sad? Angry? Yes, Google has updated the PageRank you see in the Google Toolbar.

We have several reports at WebmasterWorld and DigitalPoint Forums. Plus there are lots of tweets from webmasters on the topic.

Earlier this month, there were some sporadic reports of a PR update but it wasn't as wide spread at these reports.

As I said then, "Google keeps telling them not to worry about PageRank but SEOs don't hear or listen. They think SEO is all about PageRank, when you and I know it has very little to do with PageRank. Especially Toolbar PageRank which is a fictional character used by Google's marketing department."

Anyway, I hope your PageRank in the Toolbar went up or remained the same. Although it has no immediate impact on rankings and is way out of date, many webmasters and SEOs take pride in their Toolbar PageRank.
