Last month, I wrote about how there was a lot of speculation in the SEO industry about the fate of PageRank. A couple days ago, Matt Cutts confirmed a long-awaited, but unexpected, Google PR update.
Matt Cutts said: “A rare PageRank update: … Team was fixing a different backend service and did a PR update along the way.” With that said, he did also downplay the importance of PR going forward.
This site went from a PR0 to PR2. Did your PageRank go up or down?
