Another PageRank Update Already?

By Daniel Scocco

Looks like Google is increase the frequency of the nominal Pagerank updates. The last one happened exactly two months ago, there are rumors that the new one is taking place this weekend.

The clue is coming again from Mr. Matt Cutts. He stated the following on a comment on his blog two days ago:

I wouldn’t be surprised if new PageRanks started showing up this weekend or so.

Personally I find it weird to release a second PR update two months after the latest one. If you remember well, last year we passed almost 6 months without seeing one. Perhaps Google is tweaking their algorithm, so they need to update things more frequently?

    Wow very strange, I agree.

    I don’t see why they would do one 2 months after they have already done one because most sites PR would not change that much if at all.

    Although I do have a large amount of pages which have N/A so I am still waiting.

  • Tom –

    Well if they do, I’m praying for an increase 😀

  • Ben

    Sounds to me like Google might be working towards daily updates of pagerank and if not daily, at least monthly.

  • Jaan Kanellis

    Lots of the “real” updating does happen daily, just the TBPR export doesnt happen that often.

  • Mário Andrade

    I always tought that visual pagerank should be more constant other wise a website / blog would need to wait around 6 months to get some status.

  • Kelly

    Whether they release updates every day or once a year, I don’t see getting an increase 😉

    But I like the idea of a more dynamic update schedule.

  • Desk Coder

    I am not too big into PR, mostly just curious more than anything. It would be nice to see what the 7K+ links from my blog will turn into.

    @Ben – that would be nice. Easier to figure out what works and what doesn’t.

  • suresh

    Eager and waiting to happen.

    Just would like to see what it is for my blog.

  • Berkan

    Please PR Uptade.Iam Ready 🙂

  • Sunil Pathak

    i dont think there gonna be any more PR update in near future at least not till November.

  • Clarky

    I always think that PR update every three months, that last time was happened in July, so I think the next time will be happened in October 🙂

  • Noemi

    Crossing my fingers that my PR increases or stays the same but I do agree that the short wait time between updates is a bit funky, especially since I waited ages before I got PR due to their long wait time early this year.

  • Saurav

    My blog is unrated since I started it last month may ………..
    Hoping for the best

  • Ari

    I hope I’ll get a good ranks

  • ika

    i wish google will have their pagerank update every month,so we don;t have to wait long enough just to see our pagerank,whether it’s going up or down i think it’s best if google do the update every month

  • Louis Liem

    Hopefully they’ll be as often as Alexa

  • suresh

    Yes you are very much true.

    My page rank for is updated from zero to TWO.

    I am not surprised and when it is updated next time it may going to be five.

  • robotix

    I have try to checkout all my site today. My site up from pr 4 to pr 5.

  • Hitesh

    Algorithm criteria google had used this time to update the PR does any one knows?

  • gedet basumatary

    Yeah there was Page Rank updation which occurred today.

    Although my Gedet Basumatary Dot Com blog is still stuck to PR 2 didn’t surprise me coz it was recently updated.

    But my new blog’s PR for was updated to PR 1. This was a big surprise for me.

  • James

    My blog/site got ranked from pr 2 to pr 4, so i’m happy with this.
    I wonder when google will do the next… who knows, maby again in two months 🙂

  • aeirin

    there is an update on page rank today…..

  • Dennis Edell

    I’m still wondering why anyone still wonders why Google does what Google does on ANY level. LOL

    In the immortal words of Pete Puma, “It gives me a headache!”

  • Wei Liang

    My blogspot blog got updated today too. I guess Google is intending to shorten the PR update interval from the way Mr matt had said.

  • CFD Spy

    Yup updates are coming arond more frequesntly indeed, my sites got updated while i was asleep last night in bed. Nice touch, not quite on the level they should have though, I feel a little let down, but a change is a change eh, cha cha cha changes…


  • SE7EN

    still stuck at PR3
    I got PR1-2 for some internal pages

  • ipanks

    i think google do some updated in PR today because i have see different when i visit my blog. its change from 0 to 2. and its surprised to me. but in my another blog it does not change.

  • Ajith Edassery

    Yep, the update is on and my blog is PR3 now….

  • Wealth Seeker

    In all my life I have still not understood how to increase page rank and what is the criteria to do so..

    Guys can you help me with this.

    I really need to get my blog up there to the society..

  • Cozydunt

    Two months ago I gained my first page rank on two of my blogs and and I think this post is correct as they both at the same time have dropped back down to PR0. I cat work it out as they have got stronger and more traffic with lots of blogs so why lower me?

  • Sherry

    mine still no PR must be new domain too new just started early this month.

  • Arun Pal Singh

    All my sites see a drop by one rank. I am wondering what happened.

    It was a drop in the rank that caused me to search. Never expected update was going to happen so soon after last one

  • Mohit Anand

    Well, weird or not, I am really happy. My website on travel guide to India, got an updated page rank of 4. Just pays for the numerous long hrs we spend on it.

  • john

    2 of my sites has gone to PR1 and one went to PR2

  • Daniel Bates

    My one year old site was downgraded from 4 to 3 (which is probably where it belonged in the first place, but I wasn’t complaining) and the site I started about two months ago went from 0 to 2.

  • instantShift

    Nice News…. Seems now people can expect good traffic also !!

  • Roshan Bhattarai

    I got PR6 in this update…it was PR5 before…….Isn’t that cool ?

  • RT Cunningham

    I didn’t expect his update and I didn’t expect getting dropped from 5 to 4, but I can understand why it happened as I was reorganizing pages. I spent a couple of hours fixing the duplicate meta titles and meta descriptions that they had on the webmaster tools, but they still haven’t crawled my site to get an accurate picture. So… I guess I’m stuck with a 4 until the next update.

  • Curtis

    Man to think I just launched my website, back in the middle of July 2008. I remember reading about the PR updates that were taking place at the end of the July, that’s when I was thinking to myself, man 3-6 months before the next update. But when I check my Alexa stat this evening I noticed something else. I just now finally had an update to my PR, From PR0 to PR3! It’s a simple website based on CSS and XHTML validated web projects I have in my portfolio, non the less, I am very happy about this update to my first ever SEO efforts in web. I’d love to see examples and reports on how your current SEO efforts are going and possible results from from the latest Google PR update, please share your updates with us?


  • -=PuMpKiNhEaD=-

    I jumped from PR 0 to 3 last update. My site is continually growing so I can only hope that the update is once again kind to me. 🙂

  • Al

    I climbed up from PR 3 to 4 on my blog about cooking in Spanish… quite satisfied 🙂

  • Adam

    Ah very nice, one of our new sites is now at a 2! Sweet!

  • Kym


    I recall starting smaller websites, and upon the first update, I would get a PR of 3.

    Now for a site I’m actually serious about, I only get a PR of 2.

    Is Google, in any way, “toughening” its algorithms?

  • venky

    google has updated there Page rank , i had a page rank of 1 , now it is moved 0

  • Usaha Online

    more backlinks, good content, do not guarantee high pr. paid content, link, or just parked domains, some of them get PR 3 or higher… ya, we have to re-formulate our seo strategy.

  • James Chartrand – Men with Pens

    Seems you’ll get your wish, Daniel – I noticed today that most bloggers are down to a PR nothing, which usually precedes an update.

    Here’s hoping for a 6 to replace last week’s 5!

  • kraloyun

    Eager and waiting to happen.

    Just would like to see what it is for my blog.

  • Bas – Istanbul Expat

    I have the same. I managed to build a LOT of linkback this month. I think I should get ranked by now. Even my Google traffic has increased a lot already.

  • industry finest

    i hope the next update comes soon, I have a pr4 but should get to be apr5 or pr6 in the next update!!!

  • Tim

    I am wondering how long it takes from the start to be ranked now. I am just starting with the whole thing.

  • Andy

    I sure hope it will happen soon.

  • Dave08

    When is the next one due? I still have PR0

  • goblogging

    Today I got my blog PR updated. Slopped from 3 to 0 PR. 🙁

  • MichelesPaintShop

    I’ve noticed nothing stable about page ranks lately. Also to those that watch their rank drop to 0 don’t go into a panic as it is NOT uncommon to see it go back up after a day or two. If you notice in a few days it has not gone back up … go back and think about what you did recently to your website. Think about titles, headings, alt tags, links out, and more. It all counts. Don’t worry so much about Page Rank … worry about relevant content, low bounce rates, and keeping your traffic coming back. Good Luck!

  • Tim

    Finaly my website is ranked. It went from 0 to 3!

  • Yatn

    My website also is on high note from PR 0 to 3

  • Gonzalo

    Do you have any idea when the new PR will run again?

  • Diseñador

    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.


  • awal

    so, when will google update its pagerank again?

  • Dennis Edell

    awal – it should be about the end of this month.

  • Tim Productions bedrijfsfilm & bedrijfsvideo

    Yup, i also think it will be end of this month.

  • Asian Girl

    My site was updated last December. I notice this article are published on September 26, 2008 so I think this indicates the update happened 3 months later. I really want to know when will be the next update.

  • Dennis Edell

    Asian girl – this was just answered above you.

  • Roger Gordon

    Might be sooner than you think with the web 2.0 update

  • Seo Services India, Seo Forum India

    Pls update page rank for this blog

  • Riaz

    Frequency in update seems to be an issue. The rank should be updated every month

  • Adi

    I just given PR2 in the last update
    But now when I check it on some PR checker site it shows 0
    Anybody knows what’s going on??

  • Raina

    Adi – your page rank has gone down to 0. Different PR checkers query different servers. As the google page rank gets updated on all the servers all the PR checkers will show a 0 page rank for your site.

  • Asif Shabbir

    For page rank almost comes 3 times a Year. And after when you get page rank 2, Then after you had done hard to get further ranks. After all congrulations to get page rank.

  • Mohamed Beshr

    my website updated from 0/10 to 1/10

  • George Serradinho


    I see Google has had another page rank update. I went from PR3 to PR4. I’m happy and will continue to work for a PR5, that’s my goal for 2009.

  • ayman

    good work

  • Bedrijfsfilm & bedrijfsvideo & videoproducties

    Transported my site to a new domain. Took a pretty long time imo before i got ranked again. Now i am ranked with a pr of 3 again.

  • Oliver Gu

    I really hope my website that I have pured so much time and energy in can be upgrade to pr 4 in 2 months. I’ve been working hard on improving all parameters ( include edu/yahoo directory/ dailysiemap submission start next week). Thanks for the knowledge learned in this discussion.
