For some reason this thread was closed but I wanted to add an update: http://forums.ukwebmasterworld.com/general-webmaster-talk/16451-google-page-ranking-update-3.html In this thread I said; Just checked my page rank and I am now 2 on my home page as planned. Nice. Also have a fewer inner pages that are now ranked PR1. OK page rank is fairly meaningless in reality but nevertheless to be rewarded for optimisation effort is always nice. PR2 for a 6 month old site seems pretty good to me.
