FreePokerLeague asked 1 year ago
PR updated on 2 of my sites today, is this a system wide update or do they update site by site? I think it’s system wide.

Google is doing a major update dubbed “Jagger”.

PR and back links are being adjusted currently and its expected the process wont be fully complete until early next week. After that Google has indicated there will be ANOTHER update mid week and ANOTHER one the following week before all the “Jagger” changes are complete.

SO, the fun with Google will last for roughly another 10 days….

PS: I am moving this thread to the Search Engine Optimization forum so its near the other Google discussions.

Good to know Professor, thanks for the info and quick reply.

Just so people are aware, jagger is updating the visual PR (ie: what you see in your Google toolbar when you visit a site). The real PR is updated behind the scenes on an on-going basis. At the point Google does an update, that’s the only time your PR score can be considered accurate. As soon as you start acquiring more links, you PR will change, but you won’t know what it is until the next update.

As an aside, PR is more of a novelty item. It is important for attracting link partners, but in the end it doesn’t do much for your SERPS if you don’t have a solid linking strategy.

Yep, as far as I am concerned, the only thing PR is good for is to attract link partners.

And you attract link partners to increase your PR.

When I link, which I do as little as possible, I look at SERPS.

Consequently I have a PR of 5 that should be a lot higher, and lots of good SERPS. <span title=” title=”” class=”bbcode_smiley” />

PR is for the birds. :hehe:

PR 5 is very good for a site in our niche.

webber286 answered 1 year ago
I would agree that once you obtain a PR5 or PR6 it then becomes a useless metric. But, if you do a search for any moderately competitive term in our industry, the first page of results are unlikely to have anything less than a PR4 on them. So PR is a relative sign of site strength, and is something to strive for in general, just not an accurate guage of what you can expect.

Not to mention that high PR makes you look sexy to potential advertisers… that little green bar’s actually important to some people.

Well I had and still have a PR5 on the home page of freepokerleague.com one click deep got PR2, I recently changed all the URL’s so that’s good. What was pleasing is the PR3 on pokertournaments.ws and the PR2 one click deep on a site which is less than 1 month old. I registered it on 2005-09-24.
