    That's strange, the same happened to me... I have a website with a listing in DMOZ on a PR6 page with just 15 links or so and 5 backlinks with PR5. It should give me a granted PR5... All the work in 3 months now means nothing...

    Other websites (where I didn't make any efforts in backlinks) have now more PR.

    I've checked again, my main page is still PR4, but allmost my pages are now PR4. This is strange, since my sitemap is PR4 and it should only give PR3 or PR2 to all the pages.

    Some pages that are linked from the home page are PR3, others PR4. The only BL are from my own site... I'm really confused! :confused:

    I'm exactly the same. My main page is PR4 and almost all my internal pages are PR4. I don't think we've seen the last of the update yet. From my own calculations I should be at least a PR5 for my homepage unless what people are saying is true and the algorithm has changed.

    How exciting! Good to see everyone happy about the update.

    Our mysteriously PR0ed but not-banned-at-all sites have their PR back.

    Oh well, as long as the SERPs keep rising, I couldn't care whether the bar turned blue or yellow...

    Blue would be nice. I'm getting down in SERPs as days go by (from one day to another I wen't from #3 (first page) in the searchs for "Tuning" in Portuguese to page #7 without chaging anything, only getting backlinks :( At least I have PR4 on my main page, so Adsense ads will be updated daily (I hope so).

    I am seeing PR updates on back pages which before had little or no PR - but not on the home pages yet.

    i have seen no change in my home page PR (it was/is 4) or any of my pages that already had PR .All my new pages have gone from PR0 to PR3

    The thing is at the time of the last update i had about 20 incoming links (and achieved a PR4 now i have about 150 incoming links and still on a PR4?

    was i expecting too much from 150 links? - or in june was i just over the threshold of PR4 and now i am just under the threshold of PR 5

    or is this the effect of PR drain?

    i thought at least my internal pages would go up - thing is the only thing i really want the PR for is to entice more people to link to me and now my prime linking page has gone down from a PR4 to a PR3 because i "evened" my linking system out.

    bah humbugs i'm not that happy with this PR update. - whther it waws me being over expectent or google being mean to me - i reserve the right to be slightly annoyed and am going to leave to watch the excellent first world war series on channel 4 at the minute....that'll cheer me up :mad: :confused:

    No, a PR 6 link only can give you a PR 3.

    You are asking me?

    I linked to two websites from a PR 6 page (about 10 internal links and 4 outbound links), both two sites get PR 3.

    One website has several other inbound links (PR 4, 5), still only a PR 3; The other one is a brand new and only has one inbound link, also PR 3.

    Of course, this is just a normal case, I'm not sure what PR it will get if the PR 6 only has one link(this makes no much sense IMO), but I think PR 4 at most.

    Here's my view on this update.

    There could be a change in the algo for PR calculation. Most PR movements were found on internal pages. PR decline were reported for home pages. Maybe it was spread out to the internal pages which are now enjoying their new PRs.

    Few sites have reported PR increase in their home pages. Not the PR0 to PR5 increases, but PR improvements for index pages that already had PR before this update.

    What changes where made to the algo? I can only suspect that there were changes made in the way Google handles ratio of OBLs/IBLs.

    Just my thoughts. Thanks.

    Well, none of my pages that had PR increased.
    My PR7 homepage stayed the same.
    One page decreased in PR, but I changed my design / structure since the last update, so that's not a big surprise.

    But, all my pages that were created after the last PR updated did get PR.
    No more PR0 pages. That's good.

    So, I'm happy about this update.

    No real change in serps for me.

    That doesn't make sense. PR is about links, it doesn't give a rats ass about the design.

    Nothing bad happened, for me but I kind of wanted Google to ditch PR altogether. There is just too much attention and emphasis placed on it nowadays, and it is like the only thing people use when judging sites.

    Oh well, guess I'll have to live with google domination. :S
