Find Your Future Google PageRank

Posted By Darren Rowse 3rd of January 2005 Blogging Tools and Services 2

So we know Google are doing a page rank update – on some data centers the results are not showing yet. Are you impatient and want to know what your blog’s page rank will be? You might find this future page rank predictor tool useful.

Future PageRank from SEO tools looks at a variety of data centers around the globe and checks to see if there is any discrepancies.

For example – this blog is currently showing a page rank of 3 on – but after checking the tool it seems that a page rank of 6 is on the way which would be a nice thing.

It seems most of my blogs have had an increase in page rank which is a nice feeling (one even seems headed for a page rank of 7 – up from 6) – however the backlink update of the last two weeks was not so positive and SERPs and traffic have suffered terribly (see attached graph which is an example of the decrease in traffic over the past few weeks on the blog with the page rank of 7).

So whilst the updates don’t seem to be final I’m left in a strange place – page rank is on the improve but traffic levels remain at an abysmal level.

And still we wait – assured by more experienced blog/webmaster friends that time will tell and that things will improve.

In the mean time the Future Page Rank tool will be a handy one.

A similarly useful tool is Datacentre Quick Check which has a good option for checking both page rank and backlink numbers of different datacentres. This one shows the same results in terms of page rank as the above tool and indicates that different data centres still have an array of bank link numbers – ie the back link update doesn’t seem to be over yet.

  1. Looks like you got your PR of 6…well done. And thanks for this tool – it’s quite exciting to get a gauge of where we’re all going.
    I was “awarded” PRs of between 4 and 6 for my site’s main pages and Jan the 1st 2005 was my official go live date for
    so, celebrations all round and a happy new year from Google! Now all we all have to do is keep up the good work through 2005 – phew!

  2. Which site suffered that massive traffic slump? It is still pretty impressive numbers, though.
