A Rare Glimpse at Up-To-Date PageRank Data

Share Button

Hi Samurai,

Over the past 48 hours, Google has been updating their Toolbar PageRank data.

So whip out your copy of Market Samurai, open up the SEO Competition module – because it’s time to get analyzing.

Do it now! – There won’t be a better time to do SEO analysis for another 3-4 months!

If You’re Wondering “Why?” – Let me bring you up to speed…

Most of you know already that PageRank is a measure of the value of links pointing into a web-site.

The more and higher value links that you have pointing to your site, the higher your PageRank is.

Even though Google is calculating and re-calculating PageRank constantly throughout the year (I mean every day) – and altering peoples search engine rankings based on their new scores, we “mere mortals” only get to see a PageRank update once every few months.

When it happens, Google takes a “snapshot” of their PageRank data, and makes it accessible to the public.

And this means, in a few days time (as the PageRank changes filter through), we’ll have the most accurate indication of PageRank possible.

So NOW is the Best Time to Check PageRank!

  • If you’re trying to break into a new market, open up the SEO Competition analysis module inside Market Samurai to get the most accurate snapshot of your competitors’ PageRanks that you’re likely to see for the next 3-4 months.
  • It’s also a fantastic time to check the PageRanks of your competitors’ backlinks. The SEO Competition module’s “PR Analysis” feature will help you with this.
  • Finally, if you’ve been working hard building links over the past few months, you get to see the effect of your work in any PageRank changes that happen over the next few days.

(The new “Add URL” feature inside Market Samurai’s SEO Competition module couldn’t have come at a better time for this job!)

What Changes are YOU Seeing?

Has your PageRank risen? Has it fallen? Has it stayed the same?

With the PageRank data update still happening, you should be seeing some changes over the next few days (in fact, many sites will have seen a change already!)

What changes are you seeing?


P.S. – If you don’t own Market Samurai yet, and your Market Samurai trial has expired, you will have lost access to the SEO Competition analysis tools, and will need to do the analysis manually and by-hand until you upgrade to the full version of Market Samurai.

    Yeah I see my home page went from 0 to 1 PageRank. Not too bad.

  2. Woohoo! I see I went from a 0 to a 2! Go me!


  3. Hey Brent. I saw one of my sites go from 1 to 2 which is nice.

  4. I kind of knew it was to happen some time in April but still found every excuse to procrastinate :(

    In any case, my some what ignored blog went from PR1 to PR3 but I owe it more to the link building I did a while back. If I hadnt ignored it for so long and continued to build links, I am sure I’d have hit PR5 at least.

    Well, I have 5 months to snap out of procratination :)

  5. Oh!

    Any my “in the making” article directory is now PR1 – :)

  6. My blog, Gloson Blog jumped to a page rank of 3 from 1.

    Thanks for notifying :)

  7. Thanks for the update. It is a good spirit lifter for sure to see our PR go up. Sometimes I get down by doing the same old thing to grow a site but this makes it worth it.

    Keep up the good work.

  8. Thanks for the email, it was a good reminder. I wish I could boast like the other commentators but I had a set back. A Page I had with a PR2 went to 0. Nothing to blame but me. I thought I would capitalize on the page rank and use the page for something other than what it had started out (because it had my name) well conclusion is Google does not want you to change careers in midlife. lol
    Anyway it still has some of the links and I will bring it back up before the next upgrade. It is a marathon.
    On a good note some of my other sites went up a notch others stayed right where they were but most are really new sites.

  9. Thank you!
    It is time to analyze!

  10. @Mireille, same thing happened to me! My next project will be to do some link building. I would be interested in knowing what others recommend?

  11. That’s great.

    Gone up from 0 to 1 PR.

    All this done through MS.

    i am so happy.

  13. Damm, one of my sites went from 4 to 3 and my newest is still at zero.

  14. Yes things are changing already!

    My new site just launched and has a PR of 1 already.

    This software has made my life so easy….

    Thanks guys

  15. A client’s site went from PR0 to PR2 :)

    Thanks for the heads up Brent

  16. My blog went from a PR3 to PR2 even tho i built over 12000 new high quality links from other sites in my niche. I fear i was penalized for the sudden inlfux of over 5000 new links right before the pr update.

    I set up a fully automated blog in February on a subdomain of a site that has some pretty decent backlinks. It’s just gone straight to PR4. The main domain itself which is a frames based site just increased from PR2 to PR3.

    At least it gives me a better idea of where to focus my efforts in the future.

    Outstanding: I only have 2 splash pages up for my upcoming e-commerce site. We put them up approx. 6-7 weeks ago, grabbed 1/2 doz or so links and whala! Went from pr0 to pr2. I’m not even selling anything yet. Even the sun shines on a dog’s ass some days.

  20. Glad I follow you on Twitter. Hoping to see medical spa mds rank get above a 3. (it used to be a 4.)

  21. Our 6-month-old site just went from PR2 to PR4, thanks largely to the insights derived from Market Samurai–Thanks, guys!

  22. Hi Brett

    Just got round to checking this. My plugin for Firefox shows my page rank up from 0 to 2 but MS (via the add url) shows it still at 0.

    I liked the tool!

    I am ready to make you a localization for Ukranian and Russian Language (interpretation) plus promotion within my friends and number of forums for a life time free copy for myself.

    Please, consider.

  25. Thank you for pointing this out. I do not usually check for page rank updates. I look forward to exploring all the features.

  26. I had only 1 page with PR4, my home page.
    I think I really understand the ability of Nobel Samurai, because now I have 4 pages with PR4.
    Thank you!
