I have been hearing talk that we've finally been seeing a google PR update. Some sites have actually seen their PR go up. Unfortunately not DaniWeb :( In addition, some pages that I deleted off of here ages and ages ago, and removed all references to, still have a PR5. So I thought maybe someone had more insight than I?

hmm, seems we've had a backlink update today. At least my sites have more showing. It does seem rather dated though, I know I have more indexed backlinks than they are showing. Maybe they only show backlinks that have been on a site for an extended period of time? Chris

The backlink update has begun. I don't yet see any PR update happening, but that may coming soon.

For those interested there's been another BL update by Google. And no, there's been no PR update for all the PR junkies out there.

There's been another G backlink update. Still weirdness with the sites showing. Some people are showing PR changes but I've seen nothing on my sites. Something has definitely changed at Googleville.

If Page A has multiple links to Page B, does that show any more weight than a single link? Is Page A's PR spread thinner to every page it links to? Does Page B receive any more PR than it would have with only one link? Thanks!

Does anyone know what's going on with this July PR update? In the past, backlinks and PR were updated together. That doesn't seem to be the case this time. Not only that, I've heard some mention of a few sites fluctuating in PR lately in addition to some previously PR0 and new sites gaining PR. Anyone care to guess when the PR update will come? Or has the dreaded G decided to skip out on us this month!

I just noticed that forums.devshed.com name their forums as keyword phrases. For example, instead of forums such as C++, PHP, or Java they will use C Programming, PHP Development, and Java Help. All three of these phrases are really hot keywords on the search engines. Is it beneficial to do this? Does using PHP alone have more possibilities to grow SEO-wise? (PHP help, PHP development, etc.)

There has been word around the neighborhood that G is trying to prevent the selling of PR - but what exactly are they doing about the matter, or are they going to do in the future? Currently, some high PR pages which sell text links have their PR transferring power blocked. (example: PR9/10 page [url="http://www.phpbb.com"]www.phpbb.com[/url] which doesn't show up as a backlink for any of the sponsors on the homepage) How drastically is this going to change the off-site SEO scene?

We all know that mac developers have always been left high and dry when it comes to having to live without the Google toolbar, and therefore without the convenience of a PR bar while web browsing. However, I stumbled upon this tool: [url="http://www.digitalpoint.com/tools/pagerank-mac/"]http://www.digitalpoint.com/tools/pagerank-mac/[/url] I'm a windows and mac user and I've yet to try it yet, but it does look quite promising. Don't ya think? I know a lot of mac people who have been begging for something like this.

Hello, Some time ago I bought space at Homestead to build a business website, and located my business domain name there. I've ended up creating my business elsewhere on the Web. I've established a redirect link from an empty index page at Homestead to my new website. I have nothing else at Homestead. I asked Homestead if I needed to add some text description to their site so that the search engines would have something to display, you know, a blurb. Homestead replied that it didn't know how different search engines treated a redirect. Does anyone know the answer to …

I know that spiders are incapable of filling out forms and the like. But if I have links that have been dynamically generated client-side by some simple javascript, are they capable of following these links?

Interestingly enough, the need for mod_rewrite, html extentions, and PR are all becoming devalued in all the newer SE algorythms. 6 months ago a PR 7 would get you super high rankings because PR was so heavily factord into rankings. Up until a few months ago having clean URLs was extremely important. Now, anchor text is huge- links from quality related sites (or even unrelated if you use good anchor text) tells all the major SEs what your site is about. It is called "Offpage SEO". A good example of this can be seen on google by doing a search …

Is anyone here having a go at the Google "nigritude ultramarine" search competition? Would be interested to know how people are doing. I'm giving it a go - not sure how well I'll do. Howard

SEO-Guy is doing a great job getting links to DaniWeb out there. My question now is how long before Google acknowledges this? Usually my PR fluctuates near the 1st of the month. Do I have to wait until July before I receive any benefit?

Do you think it's better to link to your links/rsources somewhere on every page of your site? Or just off of the homepage?

My google PR recently dropped from 6 to 4 on my index page. Is this something to worry about or just the monthly google dance?

This site, for example, is located at [url="http://www.daniweb.com/techtalkforums"]http://www.daniweb.com/techtalkforums[/url] - However, it can also be accessed via its domain name [url="http://www.techtalkforums.com"]www.techtalkforums.com[/url] If someone links to [url="http://www.techtalkforums.com"]www.techtalkforums.com[/url], and is forwarded server-side over to daniweb.com, which domain name would get the PR increase? I know that PR is on a page-by-page basis, and not domain-by-domain basis.
