Google Pagerank update January 2008


For those of you not yet aware or totally missed it (like we did) as of January 10th 2008, Google is updating its toolbar PageRank.

Each update causes a stir among the SEO community but does it really matter any more?

It’s common knowledge that page rank holds very little weight on search engine rankings. Old data, normally a couple of months at least, (~ October last change), shows you how little bearing it has on your ranking today.

I’ve always believed you should build and maintain a website for your customers and readers as well as for yourself; I enjoy adding new content, it’s a method of keeping up to date with current technologies and trends, as well as creating more genre specific content -

A lot of people use ‘Black hat’ SEO techniques to get a page noticed, which probably do work to a degree, but that’s kind of a moral choice to make more than anything… anyway, most of these methods are short lived - what’s that old saying?

It’ll all come out in the wash ;)

To find out your current page rank, add your url instead of ours:

    my serps have gone up but not my PR.
    My PR went to 0 at the last update.
    Don’t undertstand why the serps have increased if my PR is still the same unless PR does not affect the SERP

    My PR also went up from 0 to 3 in three months also. One of my blogs went from a 5 to a 3. Every thing else remained the same.
