What does Page Rank n/a mean?

Is it the same as PR zero ?
#n or a #page #rank

    N/A normally means not evaluated yet. So not even a 0 as of the last update.

      N/A is below 0. However, it isn't hard to get passed N/A and 0 and even 1.

    n/a has new websites or low quality websites, Google still did not assigned you any PR.

      Exactly. For the people that are saying "N/A is less than 0" - no it isn't. NA means not evaluated yet. 0 means evaluated, and you have nothing.

    Page rank can be a quite deceptive at times, because Google updates public page rank four times a year. Fact is Google is constantly updating page rank on a continuous basis. Thus that page rank 0 page you just left a backlink on may in fact be a page rank +1 page.

    PR n/a means that Google has not publicly disclosed the page rank of that page yet. Page rank 0 means that as of the last Google PR update that page had a page rank of 0.... you can get a better idea of current page rank by using backlink tools, such as Open Site Explorer.

    I just added some juicy PR4s, PR5s, PR6s, and a PR8 to my money site. My money site went from a PR3 to a PR n/a. This means google is re-evalutaing the page rank. It should come back as a PR6 or PR7. /crossesfingers

      Man what are you people posting for?

      Look at the ridiculous replies:

      (Way too many to quote)

      "Now you might know what is n/a means in page rank. And this kind of website has not authorised content we can say."
      (Has nothing to do with "authorised content," whatever that is)

      "N/a means your page rank below zero,add more original content in your website,so google increased your page rank according to your effort. "
      (original content has zip to do with PR)

      "Page rank N/A means that's PR was zero."
      (No, PR0 is different)

      "n/a has new websites or low quality websites,"
      (Quality has nothing to do with PR)

      "Usually this are new websites that are n0t established yet. Add s0me c0ntent on it "
      (I guess we are mixed up with the zero key, as well as being mixed
      up on content=PR)

      "PR n/a and 0 both are different. If you site is not index or not cached by google, it shows PR n/a. "
      (No, you can be readily cached and indexed, and yet have PR n/a)

      "NA means Google has not given any value to it. Might be its not crawled yet. "
      (Nothing to do with crawling)

      No wonder there are so many failed threads here. You people simply do
      not even know the basic stuff.

      Now for a decent question:

      "My money site went from a PR3 to a PR n/a."

      What google has said on that is to look internally/externally. Do you allow paid
      links for PR? Does your site have paid links to shmooze PR? If they
      find these, they will knock your PR down.

      Google reserves the right to knock down the PR of sites that allow
      paid link PR, and having paid links to your site.

      Also, if other type of links were suddenly devalued as well.

      Having your links taken away reduces your PR.

      But going from PR3 to n/a seems to be impossible without
      some major readjustment. Maybe checking the PR using
      whatever you were using had a problem.

    N/a means your site have not been ranked by Google,And the ranking of your page is not/Evaluated yet.It may be because you have a new site or the content is not relevant/unique.It doesn't mean Zero,it is below that.

    Some things about pr:

    the PR you see for your website is basically historical data.
    Its called toolbar PR and is updated a few times a year in the toolbar BUT real live pr is constantly being updated on Google’s end, so the metric is useless.
    Lot of people confuse pr0 and pr N/A. PageRank scale works from 0 to 10, 10 being the best , 0 being the lowest on the scale.

    pr N/A means "not available" .

    "Not available" means that toolbar PR has not been exported from Google's back end.
    It can mean that the url is just too new,
    or it can be a glitch in the latest data feed which offers PR,
    or it can mean that Google has chosen not to display pr for their own reasons.

    Your site doesn't have PR or your website was created AFTER the last PR update!
