Just a quick note. It looks like the pagerank update is finally happening. After dropping down to a 3 last week, I’ve bounced back up to a 4 now. Was at 5, so it’s a bit of a drop, but better than a 3 any day.
It looks like a few of the other sites that got hit this week have gotten most if not all of their pagerank back as well.
Two things that could have happened here. Either last weeks drops were some sort of rollback to a previous pagerank data, or it really was a “penalty” drop that Google thought better of.
Maybe all the negative buzz had something to do with it. I’m sure we’ll never know. The site I’ve been using to check my PR is digpagerank.com. There are several more out there, that’s just the one I’ve been using.
