I have a widget on my desktop that tells me what all my websites’ PageRanks are. I’m not obsessed with PageRank or anything (unlike some people), but it’s nice to be able to check at a glance.
Anyway, I was checking another widget a few minutes ago, and I had a bit of a surprise. All of my websites’ ranks went up. That’s right, they’ve all went up.
- Webmaster-Source.com is now PageRank 3 (it was 1 previously)
- SiteOfRequirement.com is now PageRank 4 (was 3)
- NTugo.com is now PageRank 3 (was 1)
After seeing my new ranks, I went and checked some other sites.
- ProBlogger.net: 6 (hadn’t it been lowered to 4 recently?)
- SmashingMagazine.com: 6
- Copyblogger.com: 7
- EnGadget.com: 7
- Amazon.com: still 9
So, what’s Google done this time? Did they update the toolbar PageRank? Did they update their algorithm? It seems that most of the sites that had been penalized recently have been restored to their prior ranks.
