Cheers Jess. And where are my manners, your achievement was no small deal either. Important for a directory to have good PageRank, and PR5 is great!

Actually, the PR more than doubled since it is measured on a logmetric scale

Ok, could somebody interpret this stuff for me?

Are those my different pages? and then their rank? I don't have that many pages.

Does this mean I will move up in the search results? If that is saying I have a 3.


I won't get happy yet....boy, if I have a 3 though, man thats good compared to what I would have had if I would have had no help from all of you guys. I'd have a big fat o.

Swan, to answer your prior question, those IP's you quoted above are Google's different datacenters. They update at different intervals and the ones in your post that were still showing zero still hadn't updated when you took that snapshot. Congrats on your increase.

Well, Google always know the "real PR" for a given site, even though the PR is not visible on the toolbar.

A Toolbar Page Rank update as the recent one is meerely just cosmetic.

Solutions & Jess -

That would make sense, except for the fact that the keywords I've targeted really are not very competitive - they're pretty obscure and other sites ranked highly in google are clearly not search engine optimised. In MSN Beta search, my site (s) rank in the top three for about 10 different keyword combinations, yet in google, the site remains search engine fodder.

I've over 100 keyword rich anchor text links pointing to the site, from relevant sites - way more than the competitors. Titles, text, meta tags etc all keyword orientated.... WHY???? Does google take longer still to cotton on or what???

Anyone know when the last PR update was? I'm trying to get a feel for when the next one will be. Also, lets say your site 'would be' a higher PR if they did an update... are those factors taken into account in a search even tho your pr hasn't been updated or do you have to wait for the update for it to count? For example, if i'm PR5 now and next week I get some PR6-8 links that'll bring my PR up next update, will my rankings go up in the meantime even tho pr hasn't updated or am I stuck til next update?

Any guess when the next one might be? :)

Also, Google hasn't spidered my site since the day after X-mas... usually it's much more frequent... is google not spidering as much during the update? i'm waiting for the bots to come back so some of my new links to my other sites will get added to the engines :) much easier than submitting ;)

Sounds like you answered your own question. Google penalizes SEOd sites and prefers sites that rank 'naturally'... if it can tell you're trying to manipulate them it can hurt your rankings.

PR can make a difference between two roughly equivalent sites... but if your site is ranked lower for other reasons PR may not make a diff.

MSN/Yahoo are much easier to manipulate in my experience using white hat SEO.

Good qualities links + well formatted white hat SEO site = top rankings in MSN/Yahoo/etc.

Google = A mystery to me :)

I used to be so happy when my pr would move up.

I'd make my wife come in the room and look at the green bar.

I'd yell and celebrate.

My cats would run and hide.

Then...

I'd realize the depreciating value of PR and go back to building content.

I'm in the same boat (seriously, the wife, the cats, everything). Though the fact that mine jumped from a 3 to a 5 on most of my pages gives me a warm fuzzy. I'm just dreading losing all that nice useless PR when I get rid of my subdomains in my next major update. I'm not really getting rid of them, just going to 301 them.

Jess and GardenStew,

Congrats on the PR updates – long overdue I sense. What a huge jump too.

I myself experienced a PR jump from 0 to 3, which though not as impressive as yours, I am still happy. Looks like the daily grind of establishing incoming links is finally paying off.

Jess, thanks for Future PageRank Tool – very handy.

In conclusion, thank you OZZU and all contributors (rtchar, veto, jess, etc) for providing and sharing knowledge on building better ranked sites.

I mentioned the last time this happened. I saw only PR0 pages updated and this has now happened again. One of my links pages went from a PR0 to a PR6. Across the board, only sites of mine with a PR of 0 increased, everything else stayed the same.

Oh...any does anyone remember my prediction of the next Pagerank update ;-)

Much agreed on that. I'm in the learning mode on this myself. Prior to roughly August I stayed out of the Search engine boards due to that cluelessness disease *lol

The last PR/Backlink update was around new years (1/05).... You have a few more weeks will we probably see another backlink update and about 3 more months until we see another PR update... :D

Hmmm, alright. Unfortunately my main site's unchanged. Although I recently released a new software title (8 Jan). I guess I'll only start seeing real results in the 3 month update. Any suggestions on how to increase my PR or methods that have the greatest effect? Thanks.
