Google Is Kick Starting 2010 with a PageRank Update


background image

It looks like Google used the new year’s eve to update the nominal PageRank around the web. My established websites didn’t experience any fluctuation, but I noticed that many of my recently created niche websites gained PageRank.

Most of them went from PR0 to PR2. I was surprised to see one of them jumping from PR0 to PR4 though, especially because the site is less than six months old.

What about you, did you notice any changes?

Finally, it looks like the frequency of the updates is indeed increasing. The last one was just two months ago (late in October), so keep an eye for the next one around March.

    The last real update was back in April 2010 and no updates have come since. This is by far the longest period I have ever come across and does seem that maybe they are either ending it or just reducing it?

    I am looking forward to seeing how this plays out.

    It’s now October and there’s no major update since April. Does google have stop pagerank mechanism?

    This puzzles me about google. My main blog has no page rank, but it has good search engine position. It’s ranked #1 for a competitive keyword. My other two blogs have page rank but are not ranked as high in the search engine. Mega weird.

    I am surprised that Google has not completed a July 2010 update by know. Making us all wait.

      Hi Sanju,
      I appreciate your assumption for sharing. However, nobody knows exactly about this old topic. Definitely only the big G knows. But, your assumption gets closer to the first update this year. It was at early April 2010.
