Google has finally updated Pagerank today January 20, 2011.
In the past we assumed or expected a 3 to 4 month interval between Google Pagerank updates. This time around approximately 9 months has passed. People were even suggesting maybe it was discontinued or being phased out. Lots of rumors and speculation have been circulated around the internet in recent months.
It does make one wonder if they will resume a more traditional and expected 3 to 4 month interval between updates again. Or, will Google go with a Pagerank update schedule more along 6 to 9 months in between. Nobody knows, well Google knows, but it's not something they usually let everyone in on.
I do follow and watch Google Pagerank updates. I just don't get too caught up in it. I see so many people that are so tuned into trying to get a higher rank that they often neglect their web site.
I would rather have a lower pagerank with a decent flow of traffic to my web site. I have seen a number of sites with fairly high pagerank, but with very low traffic. Ideally I would like to see a decent combination of a good level of pagerank along with a steady flow of traffic.
Anyway if you follow Google Pagerank you might check your web site and pages. Remember is not site rank, but pagerank. Each and every page can and will have a different level of rank.
And, after waiting 9 months for this one, who knows when to expect the next one.
