Google BlogSearch PageRank Phenomenon

Last week we had a major Google update named the Jagger Update. That update increased and decreased many site’s pagerank including http://blogsearch.google.com/.

The question raised in Search Engine Watch forums by Sharon and Roy was, why did Google’s BlogSearch page jump from a PR0 to a PR9 in a matter of days? Sharon and Roy say that “Google blog search engine debuted on September 14, 2005” and then they list out a historical record of backlink tracking for that site by Google, Yahoo & MSN (url – PageRank – backlinks Google | Yahoo | MSN ).

http://google.com/blogsearch – PageRank8 – 782 | 20,335 | 18,352
http://www.google.com/blogsearch – PageRank8 – 782 | 9,128 | 18,315
http://blogsearch.google.com – PageRank9 – 8,450 | 145,125 | 88,673
http://search.blogger.com – PageRank9 – 749 | 11,318 | 9,978

    Pagerank it is constantly changing on Google’s end. On our end we see a steady pagerank value on the toolbar until Google tells the toolbar to show an updated value. The pagerank that the toolbar shows us may be a couple weeks delayed if not months delayed.
