Google PageRank Update Underway (27 October 2007)

Google PageRankAfter a long awaited 180 days another Google PageRank update is now underway.  For those of us in the Internet Marketing world Google PageRank can be a badge of honor if your websites have a high PageRank and for Internet marketers who own properly websites with advertisers a 1/10 increase or decrease in PageRank can mean the difference in thousands of dollars in advertising revenue a month.

This update was a disappointing one for the team at WebpageFX.  Our website dropped from a PR6 to a PR5 which makes no difference in the number of visitors who come to our website, but we enjoyed having a PR6 for many years.  The downward shift of Google PageRank is part of every update as it becomes increasing harder to have a PR6+ website PageRank.

Here are some other websites how experience a large decrease in PageRank:

  • .:. PR7 to PR5
  • .:. PR7 to PR5
  • .:. PR7 to PR5
  • .:. PR7 to PR5
  • .:. PR10 to PR6

For those of you who fall outside of the Internet Marketing community here is a quick definition of Google PageRank:

PageRank is Google’s ranking software that calculates the relevance of a webpage to the search keywords entered. The software analyses both the number of incoming links and the ‘quality’ of the referring webpage to generate a relative measurement between 0 (low-relevance) and 10 (high-relevance). (The ‘quality’ of the referring webpage is an abstract measure of how authoritative it is on the subject matter.)

  • I do not know if Google updates the pagerank, but I already has over 1 years with a PR4, every time Google does not put it more difficult to attract visitors to our site, Google wants all the web traffic for them, is not just be left to compete and I am trying to get by with Google Adsense.Pero really earn a pittance if you have it 5 to attract more visitors.
