As of this morning (Jan. 20th), I'm seeing changes to the Pagerank toolbar export on at least 4 of my sites.

Anyone else seeing this?

    If you are not sure how to take one of my comments or suggestions, please choose the option of most offensive and degrading, as that is clearly what I intended.

      Yup, almost took google a year to get around to it this time LOL

      Two of my money sites moved from a PR4 to a PR5! and most of my internal pages have gone from a PR0 to a PR4!!!

      Very Satisfied!

    Confirmed! One of my sites just went from PR0 to PR2.

    And, some of my inner pages are turning green too.

    Wow! One of my sites went from 0 to 2! Google needs to update more often, I think.

    Ohh. I'm new here. Hi, everyone!

    Holding steady at 6 for my main site. Overall, I am seeing just minor fluctuations, and then is a non-event. I noticed a couple of sites that were clearly buying their pagerank got knocked down quite a couple of points but not penalized. One site buying pagerank slipped through and is still holding at 7. But I saw a 7 knocked down to 5 and and 8 knocked down to 6 that were both buying pagerank.

    I also saw a little more pagerank showing on internal pages for sites that are more interactive and engaging, but mostly this update was about homepage pagerank. I continue to believe you must think about building a site people love, and in time you will see the benefits. Pagerank may help or hurt you financially at times, but in the grand scheme of things, your reputation with real people is far more important.

      I'm thinking there is more to toolbar Page Rank now than just links. I mean, my site that went to PR1 has 38 PR1 links, 80 PR2 links, 10 PR3 links, 5 PR4 links and 1 PR5 link. Most from same site, but it's called Page Rank and not Site Rank.

      Wouldn't that site normally get more Page Rank?

        There's your answer. Backlinks from the same domains diminish in value. All other things being equal, 5 links from a single PR3 domain will provide less 'Total Backlink Value' than 5 links from 5 different PR3 domains.

    This is why Larry Page is taking over as CEO, Eric Schmidt was too complacent in updating the page rank. Talk about getting down to business, Larry step's in, PR is updated. Coincidence?

    Some up, some down.

    I noticed that sites with natural inbounds fared better.

    For me it is a good change. One of my PR0 site went to PR2.

    I've had good and bad updates. Some of my sites have gone to pr2 and 2 sites have gone down from pr2 to pr1

    one of my sites has gone to pr1 and also hit the #1 spot.

    Will these google updates take a few days to stabilise?

    Thanks

    one of my site from PR0 to PR1 and the other from PR1 to PR3?

    But one of my most important website remains unchanged. So is the PR upgrade completed or still in progress?
