    Hey frnds,

    Suddenly today i have see the page rank of Mashable.com one of the best & so popular site for social media news and for tech gigs becomes PR 0 and one more shocking news it has 0 backlinks too. Though Google index the site regularly, last Google bot visit is on 18th of Feb.

    You are joking right? Mashable has a PR 8 and have a ton of links. Did you stop to think the site/application giving these results might be wrong :)

    Anything is possible of course, but for a site to go from a PR 8 to 0 you have to question where your source of information.

    PS - I checked and it's still PR 8.

    I am not here to crack joke...Mashable PR is still 0 here in Nashville, i have checked in my Google toolbar and also in other page rank tools. If you not agreed than search in Google for "Mashable Page Rank" and you will found tons of post discussing about the issue..Also you have to agreed about Mashable backlinks..why its drop to 0..??

    Actually I don't agree most of their internal pages are still high PR 6 and above - All I see is people speculating, no proof of anything - If they were going to get penalized all pages would have, not just the root. Also the backlinks - Google hides almost all it's backlinks, so that is not a good indicator as well.

    Remember page rank checkers are showing data from MONTHS AGO not anything from any recent google update.

    In Australia the page rank is still showing as 8.

    I would think it's just a glitch somewhere and will fix itself soon. I doubt a site with that must authority would drop to zero for any valid reason. Possibly because of error.

    i also notice this. The page rank is 8 and i don't think google penalize them. You should check your Google toolbar. Or if you are using any other toolbar to check the page rank then please change them. Your ip maybe banned by google for ping query again and again.

    it must be something wrong with your bar to check the PR.
    You need to restall one and it will be alright.
    it will be amazing from 8 to 0.
