    PR7? You lucky thing!

    Not so good here.. slipped back a bit, but it takes a little while to settle down. Lost a couple of PR6s to PR5s though but perhaps they will be back in a couple of days.

    Lost my PR 8. Got a bunch of PR7s from PR6s, a couple of PR 7s went to PR6. For the life of me, I can't figure out the jumping around. Oh well.

    It looks as if Gogle have "revalued" the PR's. My homepage (which was 6) went to 0 and is now 5. I lost an 8 and some 7's.

    From what I can see of other sites (much bigger than mine), many have had their ratings trimmed.

    Although most have gone down (from what I can see), the ratings seem more realistic? It was nice to have an 8, but to be honest, I have no idea how it got that rating in the first place.

    Not that any of it seems to have any effect on the traffic (good or bad), not sure what purpose the ratings really serve.

    Maybe it will all change again in a month or so?

    What a crappy update on every site but my newest one. That one went up from a 2-3. The rest all went from PR 4 to PR 3.

    All of my sites went up but I can't make sense as to why for some sites. My largest site, that I've been working on inbound links bumped from 4 to 5. A new site, which Google only shows 1 inbound link jumped to a 6. So, how did the 6 month old site get a PR6 with only 1 inbound link showing in Google?

    Frankly I don't think PR means anything anymore, and I'm more concerned about where my sites rank in their search results. I've had the same PR for almost a year now, yet my listings have dropped so badly that I can't even find some of them. That PR bar is probably just there for our entertainment

    I noticed my PR 5 site was down to PR 4 this morning but now it is back to PR 5.

    But the best news is one of my sites that previously had a PR 4 then went to a grey bar for months and months now has a PR0. Never thought I'd be so thrilled about a PR0!

    No changes here but G really has done a lot since the algorithm change on the 16th. When it first happened I was in decent shape, but now I've pretty much lost everything I had remaining. At least I had a good Christmas run. I have a feeling January will be spent recovering from all of this.

    I agree on PR not really meaning much. Once you are over 3-4, it seems pretty much a wash these days. Used to mean something, not any more.

    The only place it meant anything was we sold text links on the pr8 site. Didn't sell PR, didn't mention it, but i think for some advertisers it bought so legitamcy to the site. Oh well.

    I had 3 brand new sites with pr0 goto pr4 in one leap with no inbound links.

    My oldest (first) site with many inbound links only creep for a pr3 to a pr4....

    I don't give pr much thought but was surprised to see my new sites jump.

    (afterthought: maybe the newer the site the better its PR ) doubt it

    Sorry I'm late with my PR udate but I've been enjoying the holidays.

    Anyway I just got my 1st PR5 site. Other either went from 0 to 2/3. 2 went from 4 to 3. Traffic still going up.

    I too just concentrate on traffic. Any PR just makes it easier to get links.

    Ai-ai-ai! I could use a little insight. How long does this process normally take?

    I have one PR5 site that hasn't changed, one PR6 site that keeps going back and forth between a 6 and a 5, and two PR5 sites that have gone back and forth between a 5 and a 4.

    I think we should dub this process the "Google Bounce."

    I got 1 PR0 go up to PR4
    and 2 PR0 go up to PR3

    What's really weird is that the one with the PR 4 as far as I know has hardly any inbound links and the others have a ton.
