    There's a high chance the PR might actually get canned for good.

    There's never been an outage on this scale before.

    there is no need to panic. i think its gone forever now.If so we will have to develop some new standards for link quality measurement. Though a good PR site not necessarily have good backlinks but PR used to make it easy to filter the targeted ones from the crowd. Now as PR is gone, link building and competition analysis will be bit difficult as we are very used to PR.

    i have done lotsa link buys in last 4 months and seo was never so easy for me before.though all my high pr paid links are PR n/a now but i am still going to continue with them as those sites still hold the same authority as they were before.and i havent seen any rank drops..rather one my site went up 4 positions during last 3 days.
    One of the main disadvantage of PR flush is now it will be difficult for people to find high authority hubs. Fortunately we know many such hubs which we can utilize for now. but what will happen once all are utilized to its maximum cap?

    we will have to develop some new standards like mozrank, but i dont trust mozrank. for me, backlinks to the page is only standard that i can think of.

      PR gone everywhere including my sites of-course and Google.com shows a PR 0.

      Now we'll have to see if it's temporary or permanent - do you think it's a game changer for SEO and site promotion?

    Ya i saw a bunch of posts before where google disabled third party PR
    searchers, but their own PR still worked

    seems that is the case again

    Although when I check kws on Market Samurai PR still shows for top 10 sites on Google (SEO competition module)

    not sure what PR search tool they are using to get that PR information

      That's EXACTLY what Google wants, for everyone to install their Toolbar.

      Then they can see on all the sites you go on, all the porn, all the illegal sites, then take you to court and there's nothing you can do about it.

      I'd suggest you read Google's entire TOS for all their products, then use their stuff.

      Simples!

        Come down dude!

        They just updated the hash of the toolbar URL.

        It's just a matter of time until all the plug-ins get updated with the same hash. Everything is fine, and PR is still there.

        Are you ****ing kidding me? It is not illegal to go to a porn site. If it was, the internet would be a ghost town and if you think prisons are overcrowded now...

        And even if it was illegal, Google would get absolutely no benefit from it. You can't sue someone else for breaking the law unless they did something to directly harm you. It would be a messed up world otherwise.

    Hmm, I can't check PR in Google's toolbar because I'm running Firefox 6 however, almost every one of my friends is saying that its intact if you use their official toolbar.

    prapi.net (not mine, of course) also works well. Seems like they have changed something.

      I've seen the root page PR drop on 3 sites. One PR5 has gone to 3 with internal category pages (it's a wordpress blog) still PR 4. Another PR4 -> PR2 with internal pages still 3.

      This could be something different but I checked and recorded PR on 4th for all my sites.

    If they do get rid of PR for good, then backlinks from RELEVANT sites is going to be the new king in town. If you don't know a site's PR, you have no idea if it would benefit you to get a backlink from them.

    So that would cut back on a hell of a lot of profile spam on high ranking domains.. Pretty much the only way to make a quality backlink would be from a relevant site.

    Guess we shall find out soon enough!

      Everyone, relax. Google updated the URL which is used to query the PR and it caused all plugins, toolbars, and websites to temporarily stop reporting the number until they update their script. Scrapebox already has, for those of you who use that. In the meantime you can use http://www.rankchecker.com/pagerank-checker/ ; it has also already been updated with new script to display PR properly.

    Not trying to just "plug" my link here, but as you know we interact pretty often on here. Judging from your posts I think you would fall in love with Tweet Attacks PRO. And as you can tell (and see, lol) I'm 100% honest with my work. Feel free to check out my thread, read the reviews, search on Google for reviews of the program, whatever you like.

    You wont find a single bad review.. And especially not from my buyers. You already know I tell it how it is. It's nowhere near a get rich quick scheme, and its certainly not just "1 click" software. Like SB, YOU are the one who has to set it up.

    But I can tell from your posting that you aren't the type of person to expect a 1 button solution. So with that said, you should really check my sig man.

    If you have any questions (or anyone else who reads this) just hit me up on Skype. I make a living from this.

    And keep in mind, when you read my buyer reviews throughout my thread, every single buyer was told the same exact thing:

    "If you leave a review, it doesn't have to be great. It can be a horrible review if that is what you honestly thought about my service, just as long as it's 100% honest."

    And as you can see, there hasn't been a single bad review.. If you scroll to the bottom you will actually see things start to get interesting. But it will show you that I am sincere with my work. I do not hide a thing from my buyers. I feel the best way to sell a product or service is to be 100% up front about things. This just saves you from pointless disputes and high refund ratings in the long run.

    But anyway, VH1 is doing some popup video reunion or something, I havent seen this is like 17 years.. LOL so yeah, think about what I said
