Hopefully this is true. If so I’m moving up to PR8!

2 greg

you show as a 6 in my toolbar, but a 10 in my heart.

What the hell?? PR8 for too… They must have lowered the requirements.

5 ShoeMoney

YA DUDE cuz being in wired magazine, nytimes, and all those other pr0 links you get they must have REALLY lowered the standard =P

Shawn had better not mention the PR’s gone up at DP, there’ll be a string of ‘Who cares about PR’ posts soon after. ;)

Apparently, this one’s only on old sites – not seen any news sites getting the green bar loving yet.

I’m rather excited. I’ve had a page rank 3 for so long, but after reading both Shoemoney’s blog, Seobook, seoegghead, and a few others, I’m jumping from a 3 to a 6! I’m excited.

I noticed an increase in PR on a couple of the datacenters. Looks like 4 of the datacenters are showing a PR 4 and the others are showing a lower PR. Does that mean my PR may increase or do all the datacenters have to show an increased PR?

Ouch. Okay…

The article—all of the speakers approved their comments before my article was published (I don’t want to risk misrepresenting them). In follow-up interviews, I did ask several folks for more info so each person could express his/her viewpoint (hence, the additional comments from Kris).

People are passionate about arbitrage. They love it or loathe it. The speakers made that point clear. I wanted to show these extremes to people who couldn’t be there. That’s why I ended my article with “Generally speaking, business owners and marketing agencies see arbitrage as a detrimental practice, while those profiting as ad publishers and affiliates like the opportunity arbitrage presents.?

The session—hey now; I don’t recall jumping up and down for Tim (although you paint a pretty funny picture). Nope, I just met him at SES. I think explaining the debate between Tim and Jake shows how (in general), people doing arbitrage think it’s good while those who don’t think it’s bad. Obviously, this is an over-simplified explanation. However, it’s easier to start here when writing an article that has to be understood by a newbie audience too.

Hey Kris, thanks for commenting. I’ve sent this to the panelists for their comments. Yup, good link bait for you.

Hopefully my predicted PR5 is true as my site hasn’t even launched yet.

11 Theo

how come is still PR0?

12 caydel

I have seen movement for a few of my sites, but nothing for the vast majority of them. My Blog, as well as my articles site at seem to be staying at a PR0. I wonder why – both of them should have gotten something – I was half expecting PR3-PR4 for both of them in this update.

Earth to Catherine: WRONG POST

14 Shawn Hogan

Actually, I figured out why it’s PR8. The root of the domain isn’t even the highest PR page in the domain (for the last 3 months according to Google Sitemaps). :)

15 Shawn Hogan

It’s new… {shrug}

16 Bobby Chindaphone

lol, I don’t even care. Who cares about PR anyway? ;) *grr*

17 LV.

:),I have noticed it.

18 PPCBlogger

Catherine, How did you manage to reply in completely the wrong post?

19 Mike Cartmel

Wow! Looks like I’m doubling my PR. A 100% improvement. Ok it’s only PR1 to PR2 but from small acorns etc.

20 John_Loch

Looks like a 5 is on the cards for Nett Revenue. Not bad considering it’s only a few mths old. :)

21 teddy

i notice this google pr as well since yesterday, when i checked two of my sites pr, one of them go up from 0 to 4. btw, site showing pr 6 in my browser here.

22 The Warcraft Millionaire

Paaartay! One 0->6, a couple 5->6, and several 4->5. Now one of my main sites ranks #2 for a few search terms. Thank you google!

Does anyone know of a site that tracks when google updates pagerank and the overall effect of the update?

23 Deeno

Well guess we still doing on PG4 moving up soon!

24 Deeno

Well great moved from pg4 soon gonna move up!

25 Technology Slice

I’m not seeing a difference for any of my websites

26 Bob Sheth

Has Google hit the undo button on this update? From what I am seeing it is reversing back to what it was previously. I hope this is the case as my domain seems to be moving backwards!!! I don’t care about PR anyway!!!

27 Directory

Do you belive this?
