    So with the PR update, I heard some private networks here have tanked already :(

    Did any networks survive this PR update? If yes, I'd really like to know!

    PR blows! A test site I was spamming went to PR1 today, and I wouldn't call that quality or trust it myself, so I guess other metrics it is.

    Who cares about page rank, it's a load of old gash.

    I have a site that is PRBigFatZero, but it has a link pointing to it from a page on a very high trust, very high authority site, the page itself that gives my site the link is a PR5.

    But whatever website I link to from the home page of my PRBigFatZero site, it shoots up the rankings.

    PR by itself doesn't mean diddly, it's all about trust and authority, possibly with a heavier bias on the trust factor, and the relationship your site has to high those high value sites.

    IMHO.

    Google will reupdate it for sure as lots of big sites are showing unusual PR

    I can't believe anyone is buying sites based on PR, it's just silly.

    The network I'm apart of and use is still strong, 3+ years being in it and not a single website deindexed. They are however as underground as you will find though and weren't whored out.

    I'd refer you but I am already on shaky ground with the site owner as the couple I did refer to from BHW were nothing but trouble.

    Survived for sure! PR changes, definitely!
    I'm not sure about it but I think that I'm the only one that has a BST that was transparent and specified the PR changes of the network.

    Notwithstanding the fact that PR is barely a ranking indicator anymore, don't forget that G updates PR constantly! Like, every hour of every day.
    The 'PR updates' that get pushed out to 'us' are simply updates of their publicly available data, which is based on a somewhat-recent snapshot of their constantly-evolving PR scores.
