Google Page Rank Toolbar Update : April 1-3, 2009

I am pretty sure everyone who is anyone is the field of Search Engine Optimization/Search Engine Marketing knows by now that google has updated the Toolbar Page Rank during the first few days of April.

First of all, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all the members of our SEO/SEM team at Astute Visions, as we have moved our PR from 0 to 3 in this update.

Page Rank itself has been a very debated issue all over the internet with various factions having there own ideas and tales to tell regarding what they consider as correct. All said , it is commonly accepted that PR is not the only measure used by google for deciding its SERP ranks,though it could be one of the many. What we do know is that it does prove to be a metric so far as link maturity is concerned and for those interested in it, monetization of links as well.

During this update, there is a very interesting observation that has come to my notice.

Date : 05.04.2009 – One of the domains that I own, , which is a site presently under development and with very little content and absolutely no SEO done to it and presumably no links pointing to it, has moved from PR0 to PR4 within this update. Exciting , isnt it?? I wasnt checking on the PR but since we were planning to revive the project and get things going , I happened to check the site after like 2 month. What a surprise !

While not much can be read into it, it does lay serious questions as to how Google assigns its Page Rank to a website and what is the relevance it holds.

Call it a miracle, a April Fool Joke pulled on me  or an early Birthday gift given to me by google, it sure is something that is strange and out of place as far as happenings are concerned.
