    I noticed that too. Most of their internal pages seem to have kept their PR though..

    I see a 0 here. Wonder if they were caught linking with any bad sites? Nah. CJ wouldn't do anything like that.

    and for my own post.

    hmm... I see that. Maybe they didn't have enough money to renew it.

    CommissionJunction.com It's registered to CJ through 2009. But whois.sc lists it as an "inactive" website.

    I'm still seeing a PR7 for http://www.cj.com/ maybe there was a glitch in the Google toolbar?

    Or maybe mine is pulling old data...Hmm, dunno...

    I'm seeing PR6 for www.commissionjunction.com, PR0 for www.cj.com.
    Google is on the warpath against scumware. Hmmm.

    I wonder, since Google is apparently crashing the PR of cj.com, will they do the same to sites with CJ links on them?
    Hmmmm

    I just notice that typing commission junction into the browser or using the link that Rhea gave I get page cannot be found. CJ.com works
    Would the page not displaying cause a problem with tracking sales?

    There is something funky going on with PR and backlinks. CJ.com shows a PR0 and even more strange, it shows zero backlinks, which is not true, they have at least one good link from dmoz.

    Google is doing some weird stuff right now. There has been a backlink update, but people are wondering if there was a PR update or not yet. It seems the PR of many sites are either the same or at zero, and that the backlinks have changed drastically and are now showing links that have a lower PR than 4. It's weird stuff right now.
    I forgot what I was doing.

    >will they do the same to sites with CJ links
    >on them

    If your cj links have any of those domains in them, then you're doing it all wrong.

    I don't think it's an isolated incident. Just checked my main site and I'm now running a PR0

    There was a comma in the domain in her link.

    I fixed it, but then I remembered that www.commissionjunction.com goes to 404sville anyway!

    I don't think they've used that domain in a while.

    Strange, my bar is still showing the old PRs for everything (My sites, CJ, ABW, etc...).

    Does PR have a distributed nature like the SERPs, where it takes a while to show uniformly across all geographic areas, or what??

    It's just a glitch. There's a thread over at BigBrotherWorld "Update? The On Again Off Again Apparent Google Update Posted" and people were talking about the same thing. I guess something started happening Saturday and checking my backlinks, little weird. Lot more than usual and some showing that don't normally show. So the PR 0 is probably just a glitch, not sure what Google is doing with the PR and backlinks.
