Google PageRank Update on New Year’s Eve

SMS Text

Google has updated their Google Toolbar Pagerank as of about 1 hour ago, marking a New Year’s Eve PageRank update which should have a whole lot of web publishers and bloggers discussing their changes in PageRank over the New Year holiday.

Search Engine Journal’s Google PageRank stayed the same at PR 6, but we noticed immediately that Google Toolbar PageRank is now a PageRank 4 (up from a PR 0 since it’s a relatively new site).

Sure, the PageRank which is shown on the Google Toolbar is not an accurate indicator of how Gogole ranks or values a site, and is only on of many factors which goes into a live and real Google PageRank, but it’s still some sort of indicator, and will always be so while it’s still around.

Webmasters are weighing in already on the change via Twitter :

  • @gyutae crap… google just updated PageRank… went down from a 4 to 3.. and lost site links
  • @JustinLoans: Google Pagerank updated today!! Anybody went up? 3 out of 4 of my sites went up woohoo
  • @dragonblogger: Just found out my Poetry Blog received a Google PageRank of 2 today. Ironic since it has 1/10th as much traffic as my other 2 blogs

More Twitter conversation on the Google PageRank Update New Years 2009.

Did you notice the little green bar change for your site?
