It seems that last night on June 26, 2011 Google decided to update their Page Rank for many websites. This can either mean positive results for many webmasters and can really negatively impact other webmasters in their quest to dominate the Big G. Either way it is a sign that Google is looking at new ranking factors and is updating their algorithm to reflect this.
Currently, there has not been to many changes in the SERP’s, but you can expect that to change within the next few days/weeks. This means that Google’s search results will be full of less SPAMMY sites and more relevant content for their users. This is a win-win situation for everyone.
If you are not familiar with Page Rank, this is Google’s way of ranking websites on a scale of N/A, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. The higher the number is the better your website will rank. A Page Rank 0f 1-3 is average. 4 – 6 is above average and 7 – 10 is for large scale internet websites. You can install the Google Toolbar to activate the Page Rank. It is a green bar that shows the sites page rank from 0 to 10 or N/A if the page is currently not rated.
