    Nope - not trying to sell anything. This is a legit question.

    Had a hosting account on IX Web host.. My account has seperate class C's, however I put this domain on an ip with 2 others - so total of 3 are sharing 1 IP.. The other 2 sites have no ranking and been there for about a year..

    Bought a .info name from godad on 11/30 with privacy protection..

    Put up a 1 page gaming template I was going to develop It maybe has 10 lines to text on it and 1 graphic.. This site has no links.. The site had never been registered before.. I went to the site a couple days ago and it my SHOCK - it has a google PR of 5...

    WTF? I would love to replicate this success..... Any ideas???

    Don't ask me, 2 of my website just hit PR5, one of them hit PR3 and another PR2. The funny thing is, I stopped working on all of the sites. Google is weird.

    This Google PR Update is really weird.

    I had the domain where I work the most getting to PR 0 after going from PR 4 then 2 and now finally 0!!!

    Another one left aside and where I stop working on six months ago which got PR 4 from PR 3.

    Wonder what happened too!

    Seems to me like the past few PR updates have bounced around a lot until they settle down.

    maybe someone point to your domain by mistake (just an opinion...)

    sorry but i would like to know if you guys are checking using google toolbar? or seoquake? or any non-google toolbar for the pr?

    i was thinking if they reflect the same pr value. i only use seoquake. thanks for any input on this.

    PR5 site is passing rank to you. Not that mystifying really.

    Did you do a yahoo site explorer search on your domain? it will tell you a lot more.
