New Google Toolbar PageRank Update

SMS Text

Google ‘Toolbar’ PageRank is updating this week, in what seems to be the first PageRank update of 2008. Barry points to this Webmaster World thread about sites being penalized and dropped down to a zero.

Some of the webmasters are reporting that the issue may be because of duplicate content. For those of you who remember (most readers should) there was a major toolbar PageRank update at the end of last year where Google lowered the toolbar PageRank of some sites that were openly selling links.

Personally, I have not seen any of the sites I visit or work with change in PageRank, but some of the members of this Digital Point thread report that their PageRank is also increasing.

Any changes in your Google Toolbar PageRank?
