    Hey all, just a quick question. I was looking around doing some keyword research for a new project I am working on, and came across some competors which are top10 which have "Gray-Barred" PR rankings. I have never seen this before, and I have no idea what the meaning of it is, could anyone give me a quick explaination??

    Thanks ahead of time for your time!

    Ive seen two conditions for this where the site is present in the serp.

    1. The pages are brand new and rank - but PR is not assigned yet and therefore grey is in the toolbar.

    2. The pages have had PR and have had it removed due to penalty (ultimate) - they get removed from the index and therefore the serp aswell eventually.

    Hope that helps - I cant think of anything else causing that.

    Cheers

    Interesting, the pages I see are all still top 10, I dunno if maybe the fact that they are all adult sites ranking in google they are instantly be gived gray-barred status?

    If thats the case, would those sites have to rank top 10 very quickly before googles puts that status on them? I'm looking to get ranked for some profitable looking adult keywords in google
