    I think there was a Google dance overnight, I have noticed PR change in a few of my sites, has anyone else noticed anything?

    I was just going to post about this, my site went from a PR 4 to a PR 6 and only within the last few hours. The funny thing is that I have no idea how I acheived a PR 6 at Lifesupporters. I'll take it tho. :D

    Yes Temi, I have notice this PR changes, It seems that from the last update has pass 111 days. In this 111 days I have notice also some minor PR changes, but this PR changes seems to be a massive PR change.

    Looks like they've changed again, either that or I'm the unlickiest SOB on the planet because I'm back down to a PR 4.

    What a drag.

    Duke, it could be a data centre thing. It takes a while for the update to propagate around the data centres.

    It wasn't just my site either, now I'm back up to a PR 6 again and last night at post time this forum was a PR 5. Now I'm back at 6 and this forum is back at 4, weird.

    It isn't the sites, it is the datacentres. When you go to google, you get sent to various datacentres, depending on the load and location. The updates have to porpagate across the google network,so you could run a search one second and get results from an updated datacentre, and another search a second later and get old results. It takes a while for it to get right across the entire G network.

    Hmmn, I had no idea, thanks for explaining.

    It's just weird because I've never seen this before, or at least never noticed it.

    Well I'm back down to a PR 4, what a bummer. It's been like that all day and I'm a little skeptical that it will come back up to a 6. I sure hope it does though.

    Let it settle for a few days. The data is still propagating.

    It sure is weird to watch though.

    It will drive you nuts you know. Look at the stats, it is far more satisfying.

    Duke Guest

    That's not that far of a drive unfortunately.

    I do look at the stats though, sometimes with no pants on. :D

    I agree with old Welsh Guy. Duke you can still gain one or two PR back if and only if, the propagation still continue. But if not you have to work more on your site PR before the next PR update.

    Duke, enjoy man..your site PR is back to 6
    The propagation trough servers is complete.

    Thanks Ovi, I noticed it was back up at 6 yesterday but thought I'd keep my big mouth shut for a change and stop sounding like such a schoolroom sissy.

    It was weird to watch though because when my PR jumped from 2 to 4, it stayed at 4 from the get go and never deviated that I remember.

    Now what do I have to do to get it up to PR 7 or 8?

    Chill out man...directlly to 10 ;)
    By the way what have you done to arrive to 6?

    To be honest, I don't really know. I've submitted my site to directories such as Gimpsy, All the Biz, Family Friendly, All Links, Orange Pages, plus have reciprocal links with some strong, like minded websites. I link with pretty much anyone who has some content that relates to some part of my site (regardless of PR), which is why I'm pretty suprised my PR's so high. Maybe linking with ICRA and SafeSurf has something to do with it as well.

    I wish I could offer more advice but I really can't. My sites recipe is as follows:

    - Fresh content daily, new content on the main page a few times per week (if I have time).
    - average of 1500 page views per day.
    - addition of new links at least a few times per month.
    - subdomains x 3
    - reasonably clean, family friendly content with no links such as tobacco, gambling, warez, drugs, hate sites.
    - 2 google search boxes (one on main page, one in footer of forums).
    - Several back links with PR varying from 0 - 6 (I haven't checked all my reciprocal links so some may be higher now).

    That's it. Is that a recipe for winning or am I just getting lucky somehow?

    Congrt Duke if you are back at PR6 :), but now you need to put more effort in other to gain more PR in the next google update.
