Google Pagerank Update Starts: Check PR Status

A Google Pagerank update is underway right now and top websites are reporting fluctuating pageranks. Google PR is often considered a benchmark of site authority and webmasters have always sought higher pageranks. Google pagerank update happens once every few months as SEO experts and site owners eagerly await to seek the gift of Google.

Since last year Google has initiated pagerank downgrades for sites selling text links and sponsored posts. As the pagerank crashed for several top blogs across the Internet, hidden paid text links and sponsored posts rapidly disappeared from websites. However, some sites still continue to use paid link paragraphs on high PR pages secretly. If you still want to sell text links, learn to make them Google friendly. Remember Google drives lots of free search engine traffic to websites, and you need to fall in line with webmaster guidelines.

In October our PR also dropped from PR6 to PR3, and after we filed a Reconsideration Request in the Google webmaster tools and requested a review of our site, clearly telling them that no paid text links or hidden links are currently sold on our site, the pagerank promptly reverted PR3 to PR6.

    My sites pagerank from 0 to 4! great

  11. ArticleAlley says:

    No change for me – PR doesn’t have the significance it once had – there is very little relationship between PR and SERPS.

    It is still perceived to be very important though and is a factor in decision such as selling advertising space, so its still worth checking – its also fun to see your own progress relative to competitors.

    I do not know if Google updates the pagerank, but I already has over 1 years with a PR4, every time Google does not put it more difficult to attract visitors to our site, Google wants all the web traffic for them, is not just be left to compete and I am trying to get by with Google Adsense.Pero really earn a pittance if you have it 5 to attract more visitors.

Previously i have around 70 now i have just 10 back links left for my site But site rank well on all top keywords. It seems google backlinks scheme updated too. It still loves article links as i did for my site.

  19. Nits says:

    I dont think backlinks is the only criteria for PR. can some one suggest me the others things.

  20. Optsantex says:

    Backlinks are the main criteria for PR but you have to gain backlinks from site higher PR and less outgoing links. And one of the most important factors is your visitors ! I can suggest you autosurfing to improve you Alexa rank
