    I’ve been waiting for PR 6 for more than a year now. Site seems to be saturated at PR4. Lets see what happens this Sept 2007, or is it Oct 2007 , Next PR Update I mean ? Any ideas?

  2. PR updating should be happening soon. However, PR no longer has the value it used to have.

    I’m waiting for the PR update :-)

    PR is crazeee in my opinion. I put a legit site’s (with PR5) files to another domain I own for backup/testing purpose. I left it there once i finished my testing and guess what after 2 months I go back to delete the files and that test domain home page and every inside page has PR5 too!!! I dont need a PhD like some of the overpaid blokes at the big G to know that PR is not what it is made out to be.

    OK !
    Nice talk ..

  6. IQ says:

    This waiting is making us crazy. How can we calculate PR when nobody knows the exact formula? I usually count the number and PR of backlinks, but those PRs are too old now.

  7. Used Cars says:

    Anyone noticed pr update today. I have seen few days ago drop down pr in directories sites who sell paid links. Also I noticed today pr of general site is changing. anyone seen this update yet.

  8. doubleje says:

    I’ve lost form 4 to 3, I don’t understand :(

  9. Mark says:

    Seen my 1 site go down to PR 0 and i’ve paid to go onto directories.
    My other site has gone up 1 pr and i’ve not done anything to it.

  10. Mark says:

    Also seen a site jump from PR1 to PR4 with only 31 backlinks which are basically local authority & other related directories.

    yea google is making it a lot harder to monetize websites… which isn’t the coolest thing :/ I dont see why they are so against it; it just makes tons of people irritated.

  12. I have noticed drop in pr of many sites too. Especially for those directories which were selling links. Few of them were realy good site but thier pr dropped.

  13. directoy says:

    I appreciate your response. I think we both see this as a move towards better quality content in Google.

  14. Mastahh says:

    Hi has anyone figured how anything new on this PR thing and how often it is updated, I have a site for Free Cell Phones
    that I am trying to get some good PR going on.
    I have been using 2 free traffic exchanges sirf sites that bring in decent traffic and I am getting into a few hundred directories and now trying social bookmarking but boy is it a lot of work, you really have to spend a few hours a day and still you may get no sales and get burned out, but I am not giving up just yet, if anyone can offer something that I have not tried that is working good for them please let me know thanks.
