Advertisers think my PR3 blog is a PR0. What's going on here?

    My blog recently jumped from a PR0 to a PR3 in the latest PR update. The homepage is PR3; most of the subpages and posts are PR1. I checked this using SEO Quake, Scrapebox, prchecker.info, and several other free PR checking websites that I won't name here. Every single tool I've used says my blog is a PR3. I should also note that my backlinks are quality and strictly white hat.

    I recently started applying to advertising networks that offer paid reviews and sponsored posts to bloggers. I've received multiple rejection letters with the reason "Google Page Rank 0" on all of them. I don't understand why this is happening. What the hell are they doing or looking at that they think my blog is a PR0? Is there anything I can do to fix this? Is there any to politely say, "Um, please check again"?

    I doublechecked my PR one more time before posting this. Still a 3.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.
    Home Page:
    Send them a link to the url where you prove that your blog is a PR3.

    The direct link not the domain where you checked it but the actual url.

    That may help you some.

    I guess, when advertiser is looking your web page (on which he wants to place his website) he find its PR = 0.

    Since PR is assigned to web pages, not to domain... So, there is a huge possibility that your home page has different PR and inner pages have different.

    Probably they are checking your website with www or the opposite :/

    Make sure you have the same PR for www and w/e, cause it happens

    This would be my first guess. Make sure you are sending them to the correct version.

    If that is not it drop me a PM and I will take a look at it for you if you want.
