    Cached PR vs. "live" PR?
    Probably a newbie question, but here we go....

    Google recently spidered my site a couple days ago and when I look at the cached version of my site I have a PR of 2 (this site is new so I am happy about this) but when I look at the "live" version of my site, I still have a PR of 0 as displayed on my google toolbar.

    Will I soon be getting bumped up to a 2 or is there something I'm not getting?

    Thanks in advance.

    I wouldn't put too much weight on your PR. Just be happy if Google sends you any traffic at all. PR is more or less just an indication of how often Googlebot will be visiting your site for updates.

    My favorite part of the PR mess is how http://mysite can have a different PR than http://www.mysite.

    In other words, it don't mean much.

    When you look at the cached version of your site, it's the page in the cache that's being reflected on the toolbar, which means nothing. It has nothing to do with TBPR of any pages on your site because it isn't on your site.

    The know internally what the PR is, but you won't be able to tell until they update the toolbar PR, which is only done every few months.

    http://mysite can have a different PR than http://www.mysite.
    They aren't the same thing. mysite.com is the root index page and in www.mysite.com the www. part is a subdirectory. So the PR is different because it reflects PR accrued from links to the two different pages. It doesn't matter that you see the same content on both, technically they're two different pages.

    If the inbound links are split between the two, then so is the PR unless you redirect one to the other.
