    Google has been updating page rank after every 3-4 months. Roughly 4 times  in a year. Latest Page rank update happened in February 2012.

    Here is good news for all those who have been waiting for Page Rank update from long time. Finally Google rolled out a major Page Rank update and you can see changes on all major website.

    Though it’s a bad news for ShoutMeLoud as our Page rank dropped to Page rank 4 from earlier page rank of 5. Anyways, I hope that in next update I will be able to bring it back to 5 or better 6. :). Though I’m not surprised with this drop as I linked a lot to external sites since last update.

    Here is PR update of all of other blogs in the network:

    Though I expected CallingAllGeeks Page rank to reach atleast 4 but seems like we have to wait for one more update. Anyways, it’s good that finally Google updated it’s page rank and that too in starting of January. It’s hard to predict next PR update but I’m expecting it to happen somewhere around April 2011.

    Do let us know if you see any change in Page rank of your blog or Website?

    Are you sure that linking out has a negative impact on the PR of a blog? Asking because my understanding is that Google penalty for excessive linking does not wait till the scheduled update.

    Hi Harsh, you are right giving away too many links to PR 0 blogs will affect our rankings. Hope you will get back your PR in he next update. BTW can you tell me how to find PR of inner pages?

    You can use different link scraper tools, but that would be blackhat.

    Can you please tell me if this means that even nofollow links to PR 0 blogs can hurt your own PR? I am glad that i finally saw my blog going from zero to PR2 but i have to say i was expecting more :( . Also, i expected from some of my posts to have some PR because they had PR 4-5 backlinks, but instead my other posts that had no external backlinks jumped to PR 1-2. Did google catch me spamming for those posts maybe?

    Don’t worry about the PR, unless you’re looking to sell your website anytime soon, it doesn’t mean anything now. Others metrics are much more meaningful to Google now. :)

    PR is a strange one. Like another poster one website that I work on a lot dropped from 3 to 2 which was a bit of a surprise. Others that I expected to drop since I hadn’t done any work on them or links stayed the same….

    Most of my websites got PR hike! One even got a PR5 from PR4 and few to PR3 as their first update! Hope to get more in the next update.
    It should be just a Feel Good Factor and Bloggers should not get overwhelmed by it. Focus on the Content and Monetize Part and this PR thing is just an Add-On to make you happy.
    SML has been doing great, I have been following it from over a year and the quality of post is very good.
    Would like to se a Redesign of this Site soon. :-)

    Harsh, as you mentioned above -
    (1) Does the PR of our blog/site also fall if we link to guest author’s blog/site in the author bio. and if his blog/site happens to be PR 0 or less?
    (2) Does it also affects our blog/site if we accept lots of guest posts even if we give one link back to their blog/site in their author bio.?
    Readers you are also welcome to put in your views on the above.
    Thanks.

    Can a website that has not been updated for almost a year now gain on Page Rank? That’s what happened with one of my old website. When I sold it in December Page Rank was 4. Now it has gone up to 5. In contrast, my Specky Geek blog is still at zero.

    This PR update didn’t gives me a change but i noticed of downtime for some of my new blog posts in search engine all posts of January 2011 lost its ranking while for all keywords I was ranking on 1 to 4 position’s. Any body here can tell me why this is happened to my blog posts. Not only for me I noticed for some of my competitors too. My blog has PR2 while a new blog with PR1 got ranked on all of my positions. Please help me and let me know where is the problem and what I have to do to get ranked back

    The reason why SML Page Rank dropped from 5 to 4 is because of too many out bound links.

    I personally don’t believe in page rank. While it doesn’t hurt, as long as your site has good content and attracts both good comments and return users, your value to Google is probably much higher.

    For example, I have sites with PR4 right now that get 50 visitors per day since I don’t keep up with them. But this site gets far more traffic than 50, for sure
