Latest Google PageRank Update
Sunday, July 27, 2008
It's time for another Google PageRank update. As Google engineer Matt Cutts hinted at a few days ago. In a brief statement, Matt did mention something interesting:
I’m expecting that also in the next few days that we’ll be expiring some older penalties on websites.
Hmm I wonder what exactly he's referring to? A Google toolbar PageRank update is nothing to be alarmed about. Usually the updates have very little (if any) impact on Search Engine Rankings. Toolbar PageRank is different than algorithmic PR.

Some of the comments on Matt's blog post were interesting... take this one for example:

Hi Matt.

We have a 10 year old medical web portal that had a PR6 home page for at least the last 4 years. We just noticed that our website’s home page’s Page Rank went down from PR6 to PR5 (alas) - Although some inside pages went from PR0 to PR3 and some went to PR5 . We also have almost 170,000 pages indexed in google and get approx 10,000 Search referrals from Google.com each day. So we are a little disturbed that our home page went from PR6 to PR5. Our questions are :
(1) Could we see a further change in the PR for the home page - till the Page Rank update cycle is completed ? Hopefully we get our PR6 back for the home page.
(2) We also found out that our webserver was down for approx 10 hours on July 25th - due to an outage at our ISP. Could this in any way also affect Page Rank ?
(3) We have 2 domains .com and .net that are exact mirrors of each other - the .com domain is PR4 while the .net domain was PR6 (now PR5). How does this affect page rank - and should we redirect the .COM to the .net domain ?

Thanks for any insights and tips you can give us. !

Kumar
