    Dropped PR from 2 to ZERO

    My blog has dropped its PR from 2 to zero in the current PR & backlink update. I am not convinced as my blog was not showing any backlinks previously but have a PR of 2 and now when it is showing 3 backlinks on Google but no PR.

    Please clarify me.

    It is showing PR 2 only on 5 DCs.
    Yahoo is showing 69 backlinks and MSN 9.

    What do you want to know akashdwivedi? PR goes up and down all the time. Also, the publicly viewable PR has always been inaccurate.

    I just wish to know what the problem with my blog as the PR is fluctuating so quickly. If Yahoo is treating many backlinks then why Google is not accepting them as backlinks for my blog, I think less number of backlinks is the only reason of PR drop.

    What you say?

    Stop looking at PR.

    Do your pages still rank and is your traffic roughly the same?

    The problem is that the PR you are allowed to see is not necessarily = real PR.

    I wouldn't worry about it unless other things like ranking/traffic are affected

    To beat a dead horse: stop worrying about PR. You're worrying about the wrong thing. It's your rankings you need to be concerned about.

    i think you should not watch the PR given by google toolbar.. as google have 3 different typs of page rank, PR shown by toolbar is one of them. but its of least preference PR.

    There is toolbar PR and there is 'real' PR - what's the third one you're talking about?

    The Third is
    Google directory PageRank

    The Google Directory PageRank is an 8-unit measurement. These values can be viewed in the Google Directory. Unlike the Google Toolbar which shows the PageRank value by a mouseover of the green bar, the Google Directory does not show the PageRank as a numeric value but only as a green bar.
