Discussion forums around the web today are buzzing with talk of major problems (or are they just changes) at Google. Earlier in the day Google’s cache server was down and more recently people have started noticing Page Rank has disappeared on many sites – including Google itself.
Of course this has caused a lot of discussion and rumors – ranging from Google scrapping Page Rank, to Google having some sort of melt down, to changes about to be rolled out to Page Rank.
They say ‘no news is good news’ – but I’m suspecting that changes like these put the SEO industry into a spin as they try to work out what’s going on.
Stay tuned for future reports on this issue as they come to hand.
Update: It’s been over 24 hours now and some are starting to panic. Check out some of the following discussion forums for the latest speculation:
Update II – PR seems to have returned today over two days after it went away. No news yet as to what the issue was.
