28th April 2007 PR Update

Saturday, April 28th, 2007

A new Pr update for our webmaster dudes. It took me a while to realize some of my new sites got new PR, but it’s cool actually, they are all up to date!

Check out the DP Forum thread about this update.

There’s no secrets anyway about Pagerank, get links and you’ll get the green bar.

PR Update 25/01/2007

Thursday, January 25th, 2007

We had a very weird PR update last 10th January, and i really think this last update occured in order to fix problems from older PR updates such as the one of August.

So now is the real one!
For me it seems pretty cool, besides one thing, Irka Web Promotions was a PR5 and got PR4.

Good Stuff! is a PR5 and was PR0! and is a PR5 and was PR4!

And here are the changes for the directory world: was PR3 and now is PR4 PR0 > PR5 - Nice Stunt! PR2 > PR4
Aviva Directory PR7 > PR6
Unadir PR5 > PR6
PHP Link Directory PR6 > PR7 - Real Good!
Directory Contest PR0 > PR6 - That’s how we get a PR6.
PHPLD Your Site PR0 > PR5 - W00t!
The Squat PR0 > PR4 - Not so bad!
Epitrope PR7 > PR6 - Another PR7 that dropped.
DigitalPoint PR8 > PR7 - Ack!
ApahCinc PR5 > PR6 - Well done Jeff!
Romow Was PR6 then PR2 then PR0 then PR2 then PR4
Site Sift is a PR6 and was PR7 if i remember well… not sure.
MingleOn PR6 > PR5
All Short PR0 > PR6 - New directory! PR6 > PR5

More will be added as soon as we will find more,
All the directories didn’t change, just the new ones got Pagerank. Well it seems pretty fair to me! That’s how it looks like for this winter 2007, Woohoo!

PR Update 10/01/2007

Wednesday, January 10th, 2007

Google is refreshing the Pagerank, it happened yesterday for the first time on a few DCs. It seems like many sites didn’t got their PR updated, but some sites that had a wrong PR update from September are updated.

It means that new sites older than 2 - 4 months might not be in the update, it all depends on google mistakes on the last PR update, actually i seen many sites/directories zeroed by the last PR update and now PR came back for those sites. It also seems that google used an old cache again, TheSquat and PHPLD Your Site aren’t in the update, they are still at 0.

How do i check the pagerank evolution of my site?

Some tools will help you out

- Live PageRank Tool : About the tool, the tool check PR on randoms data centers. Google uses more than 700 data centers, that tools check PR on about 40 of them only, so to see the evolution and on which DC it’s evolving you can check multiple times and have different results… It’s kinda f*cked up IMHO.

- Dig Pagerank : Best tool, right now the evolution of pagerank is appearing over those DCs: 216.239.5x, also the 72.x.x.x and 66.x.x.x are now updating pagerank as well, if you check other DCs it gives old PR values.

Check on both and you’ll see how it’s going on.

[ Pagerank Update Thread at Digital Point Forum ] Actually you will have to look at the Page 5 or 6 to see the real update happening, David Duval from phpLD thought there was an update going on and it wasn’t but with time the update happened so lol it’s a before and after PR update thread.

Pagerank Update 29/09/2006

Saturday, September 30th, 2006

Here it is again!
[ Famous PR Update DP Thread ]

So whats new in this update, its the same to get a PR5 or PR4, but seems hard to get PR6. Webmasters Cavern dropped from PR6 to PR5, that hurts.

All the directories in our network took their launch with a PR4 except for still PR0 due to the age of the site (way too young).

Some good news!

Websites like Port Prophecy (PR4 > PR5), Alive Directory (PR4 > PR7), Qettle (PR3 > PR5), Elegant Directory (PR4 > PR6), Internet Marketing Blog (PR2 > PR6) had problem with pagerank because they are all from the 2nd January PR update (long story), when big daddy took its first start.
Google fixed that problem, regarding that update everything is fine!

SEOChat Forum Up to PR7!

- Used Live Pagerank Tool

Some bad news

Link With Us is a PR0, and it was PR6 we got some links there, may be its because there are some unuasual links exchange with that sites, on the homepage there are a paypal suscriber, some sites listed as a sponsored listing aren’t related to the internet/webmaster/web directory subject, and google tends to punish that kind of linkage…

Will SitePoint Forum become a PR0? Weird!

Weird Stuff!
Unadir got PR3, PR4, PR5 on the DCs at google! Thats completely weird LOL!

Those results might not be definitive at all,
The pagerank is still fluctuating over the google’s servers and its just the beginning! So that’ll be interesting to see how it’ll end up, some of those directories deserved a good pagerank though, others got unlucky or i don’t know its fate or something.

Now we’ll have to wait the next PR update scheduled for Christmas!
