Google PR Update in Progress.

Posted by @ 10:23 pm

The predictions suggested it would happen in early February 2006. As per usual, webmasters around the world have been watching with baited breath to see what would come of the latest Google PR (Page Rank) update.

Well, the time is now. According to an unofficial Google blog, the PR updates started on February 18th at two of Google’s data centers, and are apparently making their way quickly to other centers. However some of the data centers have actually rolled back their PRs.

So with no clear time frame set-out for the completion of the PR update, it appears flux will reign supreme in the short-term. As the forums are abuzz with people speculating about how things will pan out, we will keep an eye on the update progress and provide insights into the latest PR shift as they come to hand.

If you’ve experienced the effects of the update already, share your experiences with the rest of us by posting a comment.

I don’t know whether it has started or not but the Google PR toolbar has shown fluctuations in PR value. My site has a PR of 5. It got reduced to 4 and then again increased to 5. Is this because of progression of PR update?
