    We have done a complete redesign of our website, and have increased the copy on the site, as well as the inbound links, but for some reason the PR on the site has dropped from 6 to 0 in less than a week!!! :eek:

    What went wrong?

    Did the initial URL stay the same? Did you sleep with somebody's sister at Google?

    Yes .... and LOL
    The url stayed the same, and so did the links to most of the pages from the home page. For the most of it, the site pages were updated only, with some new pages added.

    Google has updated the link count, but ..... :(

    And no, not really into that sort of stuff. (me being a girl and all)

    Hi Groenie,

    Are you by any chance using dynamic pages on your new website ("?" pages)?
    How is your position in the SERPs affected?

    Don't worry. I have two site's main page drop to PR0. It hasn't affected the SERPs so you shouldn't worry. If you didn't have the toolbar yuo wouldn't even notice so why worry? As long as you are in the index and don't see any SERP drops with DP tool, you'll be fine.

    Google seems to stop showing a lot of pages' PR.

    I don't know why, and I don't care either.

    I second what TOPS30 wrote. The visible PR in the Google PR bar may not reflect the actual PR. Only Google knows what a page's actual PR is. There has not been a (visible) PR update in ages, and some are speculating that there may never be one again...
    So forget about it, check your SERPs instead.
