    Suprising. Google seems to be updating PR more frequently as of late.

    ive noticed this too...

    a site i launched on april 6th of 2004 that has received just over 3k total unique visits since then is already a google pr5.

    this time last year it would have taken 4-6 months just to get a page rank at all

    Anyone else think there's not really enough variation between PageRank? At least, as far as its displayed on the toolbar, anyways. What I mean is, it seems to take very little effort to get, say, PR4, but monumental effort to get PR6 or 7 ...

    I mean, my personal site, which has little content and even fewer visitors, is now PR4 ... whereas my largest site has easily 400x as many visitors and at least 100x as many links in, and it is only PR6 ...

    That's the nature of PageRank. It gets tougher and tougher to get a higher number. It's some sort of logrithmic scale (ask aspen for all the mathematical details). There's only a handful of PR10s and not too many PR9s. Ranks lower than that are continually easier to acheive as you go down.

    Interesting. Some nice gains, but nothing above PR6 still. I should link some more of my sites together.

    My entire "Training Network" (survival site, fitness site, orienteering site) went up to 7. The survival site was a 7 before I launched the other two (it then dropped to 6) but the other two never were. Jalic.com went back up to a 7. My amazon coupon page also went back up to a 7. My art history site went up to a 7 (first time for that one too).

    The rest seem to be the same. I don't pay attention to alot of them though.

    Seems like an awful lot of moves to 7 around here; think they made it easier to get?

    That's what I was thinking, which is why I was checking other sites I keep an eye on.

    I was 7 a couple years ago, dropped to 5 at one point, and have been working my way back up for a while.

    I think its possible they changed the scale, but if they did I would have thought they'd make it harder. I do not think they would have singled out a single number or rank to change.

    A global PR increase can be the result of a decrease in Google's index size.

    Maybe the dampening factor was lessened?

    It could be any number of things really.

    Welp, if PR went up for as many sites outside of SPF as it did here, I'm sure I'll read a few theories in webproworld or whatever that newsletter's called in a day or two... they're always linking someone's forum post as the reason for everything.

    I just want my search result ranks to go up I'm back on page 2 of 'website tools'/'free website tools' this month.. liked it better on page 1

    My chemistry site jumped up to a PR 7. This is the first time since late last fall that it was a PR 7. It had dropped to a PR 6. As my one site has bounced around between PR 6 and PR 7 for quite some time, I suspect this change is caused by how Google's overall indexing of the web is going rather than changes to the PR algorithm. Of course this is pure speculation.

    It's obvious- Google is giving a new SitePoint boost for those that post. Larry and Sergey must be members here.

    At home now, noticing a few things--got some PR from SP it looks like. Also, none of my internal pages seem to have 7; just the homepages.

    I also noticed some backlinks from SitePoint posts to some of my sites... ya think the signatures are actually bringing some collective PR to SPF members? I think the board is better indexed than it used to be.

    Weird--all the other sites I watch have the same PR. phpbb is still 9, SP itself is still 8, other sites not changed.

    Could it be... that... our sigs are giving good PR??

    For those of you who've jumped--are your backlinks showing SP? I'm showing only one, and it looks pretty random.

    I have 2 sites that hit PR7 as well, the rest of mine are 6's. It seems like it has gotten easier to get high PR.

    My site just went from a 2 to 5 and my forums went from a 0 to 4, and it's only been active for 5 weeks. It's either become lenient, or a new link hierarchy has been set.

    I'm showing multiple SPF posts in backlinks to almost all of the sites in my sig. That means they're passing enough PR to show up on the link search..
