Strange PR update

Discussion in 'Google' started by softarea51, May 1, 2007.

    Hello,
    SEMrush
    I recently noticed the PR update for my site (first in signature), but is really strange. The homepage got PR 3, the top operating system categories got PR 2.
    The strange things are:

    1. Links page got PR 4 even though all the links I got are to the homepage
    2. The main categories from windows (home) like Audio & Multimedia, ... shows as unranked.

    What is this unranked means and how bad is it?

    Very similar situation with me.

    Homepage of my webmaster directory (available in sig.) has PR4 but even some deeper links (especially on the blog of the directory) has PR4 too.
    I am sure that i got links to homepage of the web directory only too.

    Check these pages as an example:

    http://www.webmaster-index.org/blog/science/the-philosophy-of-becoming-more-tolerant.html
    http://www.webmaster-index.org/blog/category/science/

    Should we expect PR6 on the homepage soon? (Tell me the good news ;)) I remember such strange situations in previous update too and i am hopeful about this.

    I'm in the same situation, and praying for the above results. But in all honesty, i doubt it and don't want to get my hopes up!

    Also, backlinks updated again on the 26th of April, a couple days before the PR updated. What does this mean? will there be another update in the next week or so?

    Thanks.

    I don't expect nothing than to have a decent PR on the categories pages. And of course I would greatly appreciate if someone can explain me the phenomenon.

    I had the same situation for one of my site, a blog page which has no links over web has the same PR value with the homepage. Even the domain without "www" has a less PR than this page. :)

    I think and hope 26th of April was a new snapshot and we'll see a new update in 10 days. 2nd of April was too early to take a snapshot Uncle Google! 26 days is a very very long time.

    Ok. It seems the strange effects of the last PR update can be seen on many other sites. But can someone tell me what's with the unranked status for my category pages?

    I'm seeing the unranked pages on my site too. I'm not sure what it means...but I'm hoping that the pr update just isn't finished.

    For some reason, my www went from 0 to 2, and my non-www went from 2 to 0. (All the links are to the non-www)

    Google is weird.

    I suppose Google worked out a new algorithm just to end the fleecing SEOs.

    I hope the update process isn't over and one of these days all these "small" errors will be fixed.

    I think backlinks is not the only elements consider when giving PR to a page.

    I am seeing all my inner pages greyed out in the PR bar, even though the greyed pages r not supps.... I think there is a change in the Google PR Algo, or else can be a flaw on google's side.
