Google Is Rolling a PageRank Update Over the Weekend

Daniel Scocco

I wouldn’t be surprised to see Google rolling a PageRank update on April 1st, but it looks like they waited until the weekend to roll it out.

The update looks like a subtle one to me. In fact the homepage of most of my sites didn’t see any PR fluctuation. I discovered the update while browsing through my blog and finding that some recent posts have already gained PR.

What about you, did you see any major PageRank fluctuations on your sites or around the web?

One thing made me happy though: the consistency of the updates. Last one had taken place in January 02/03, so this one is being rolled exactly three months after. I hope Google will finally keep a regular pace with the PageRank updates, as this would give more certainty to webmasters.

  • CD

    I am a new blogger, got my blog out about a month ago. I did not even know what a PR means, but was reading online about the update. Imagine my surprise when my one month old blog, got a PR of 4! I have not spent a single penny on promoting so far…so was pretty surprised…pleasantly I must add…

  • Jan Husdal

    While my overall PR has remained the same for years now (PR5), and did so this time, too, I find it more interesting to look at how individual pages and posts are doing. Some go up, some down, some lose their ranking, some regain their ranking, and I can’t for my life figure out why.

  • Auto Sales Guy

    Yes! Google did an update last night.

  • Sujith

    Whooooooooo celebration time started. My blogs page ranking doubled to 6 from 3

    • Keith Davis

    • Ann Krebber

      • sujith

  • Jay Willingham – CampusByte

  • Paul-Sorin TiΓ…Β£a

    I confirm the Google PR update. My blog (founded on January 2010) got the first-time PR: PR3. One of the sites i’m administering got PR3 from PR1.

  • Jay Was Here

    we just jumped from 0 to 3 thanks for the info.

  • Rene Silva

    Thanks for the info, my blog regained its PR (3). I lost it when I changed from a blogspot subdomain πŸ™‚

  • Andrew

    Well this is weird. A recent post of mine got PR5 while mine homepage has PR4… I thought that’s not possible. But maybe the update is not over and I’ll also get PR5 for the homepage (hopefully).

  • Blogging Tips

    This update my blog’s PR remained same.(PR 2)

  • Keith Davis

    Well spotted Daniel
    All my posts have gone to PR 2, which I’m pleased with.
    Main site still has PR 3 and blog has PR 2.

    Was hoping that main site might go up to PR 4…. next time maybe.

    Need a few tips from you Daniel on getting that PR higher.

    me, too
    And as for me, I had no fluctuations on my two blogs: 2 and 0 pr

  • ebta

    My page rank still 0 after drop from 4 few months ago..
    I hope get better rank this time

  • Robert

    Yup, one of my sites has just been updated from zero to page rank of 2 now, my other site hasn’t seen any change however

  • Melvin

    My blog is still pr0 for some very unknown reasons. I dont know, its been a pr0 ever since and I guess google doesn’t like the name melvin in the domain name, wht do you think? :))

    • mrtom

      yeah it looks like you’ve found the word banned by google. Bad luck πŸ˜‰ But seriously, how long have you been running your blog? In my opinion today’s update doesn’t mean updating PR of all the sites.

      • Keith Davis

        Why not all the sites?
        Is it done on an incremental basis?

    • Daniel Scocco

      Did you sell paid links at any point in time?

  • Pascal

    Hi Daniel,

    I got page rank for my blog from 0 to 3. I got PR 3 for my two posts also. I got PR 2 for most of the pages (more than 25 posts).

    My youtube.com/fourblogger channel also got PR 4.

    I am glad about this PR updates.

  • mrtom

    Yes, I’ve noticed a major change of PR today. I started my blog at a new address 3 months ago (I got my own domain). Until today the PR was 0, but it has reached PR=5.

  • oceanlu

    Mine too, though it is only 1, anyway I’m still happy πŸ™‚

  • David

    that is what i love about google , consistency of the updates! they never stand at a point…. for this reason i use blogger instead of wordpress.

  • Anil Gupta

    Yeah, my scopeformoney blog gets Pr 2, before this update, it was PR 0

  • Ishan

    Well, I have checked a few sites and PR seems to have changed.

    I am waiting for my blog’s PR to change. It went to 0 from 3 about 6 month ago due to me selling links. Any tips to get it back?(I have removed the links)
