    So as you all know, it's been over 7 months since the last page rank update. The usual trend was 4 updates a year, but now we have only had one in 2013.

    Do you guys think Google has ruled out page ranking completely?

    Predictions??

    I think Google's likely moving away from it or just using this time delay to disrupt the SEO market place by putting SEO's into a panic frenzy.

    Link Buying based on PR has been on a rampage, but people are going to stop buying links until a PR metric can be fulyl replaced.

    I thought it would be coming around the corner, now with them stripping out querry search strings for search, and not updating page rank, I prob expect a update on public page rank updates to be a thing of the past.

    I think Google is trying to confuse people again. They want to have a lot of SEO related questions out there.

    Come on guys, it's not the first time big G does this thing of delaying the PR update.

    Google reads this forum and the rest of public forums (and even private ones), and they know that PR is imperative for link selling (which is a flawed mentality IMO), so G are delaying the PR so we're all confused and buy/sell less links. Everybody have been saying since June that the PR update would be coming and we are not almost in October.

    Go for DA and TF, not PR

    I agree with this. I think they're phasing it out and putting more focus on PA/DA. With PR being able to be faked so easily nowadays, I figured this would have happened already.

    In 2015 the PR patent will go public (everyone will have access to the algo) so Google will drop the PR like a bad habit. They've already started doing this for a while now, if you haven't noticed all the PR1 sites being ranked nowadays for high comp kw's.

    As skyrocket said, one alternative will be DA, but I don't think Google webspam team is sure of that. Another way to go is with a new version of something that resembles PR but it's just rumors.

    In this year Google has released it's page rank update on February first week and following are the further expectated page rank updates,

    Expected:
    June last week to July first week
    September last week to October first week
    December last week
    Many said the Panda and Penguin updates rolled off in the middle is the reason but no one knows the exact reason...

    Many are speaking about the Author Rank nowadays... Whats your opinion on this??? Will the author rank destroy page rank???

    I've switched to using DA for a while now over PR. The problem in my opinion is the correlation between the two. I think Moz definitely pulls in PR as part of their DA evaluation so how accurate of a measure is DA? Another big part of DA is the backlinks that the moz crawler brings in (which, from my experience, is probably the worst backlink profile tool around).

    Obviously High PR is an important factor and should be implemented in any high quality link building efforts, but as SkyRocket pointed out above.... Domain Authority is still a valuable metric to be looking at.

    Also this is not the first time Google changed something or made SEO's panic. It's all apart of the cat and mouse game. I have been ranking sites for the past 7 months post last PR update and all of my sites fall between pages 1-2 without any PR on the site. My DA has gone up however and I've been ranking and banking.

    Long story short.... PR isn't everything lads. And it's not like within 24 hours every website ever created will have their PR updated which is another thing to be wary of. There isn't some giant update you download and everyone receives an upgrade or downgrade. My 2 cents those pages you've been building up for 6+ months will be very fat cows once the next update comes out. Better be ready to reap what you have sown from your money sites and continue building on and enjoy the benefits.


    Good luck guys and gals.

    I have learned that you should not base your traffic 100% from google. I did learn this the hard way :)
