    Positive results although I had hoped that my PR5 site would go to PR6... It didn't... But then then some of the other ones went to from 3 to 4, and some some from 2 to 3. How did you do?

    I don't check PR. I need traffic, not a green bar.

    Well... Sometimes the two are interlinked. :)

    Only Positive. 3's went to 5, 4's to 6... This was a good one :)

    But no increase in traffic or money.. 100% agreeing with mightbh

    Totally agree, it was a good one. Still checking the various sites. (My FB page for my PR5 site is less than a month old. Went to 3. The linked Pinterest to 4 and the twitter account to 5. Social sites not really important, but I am just a bit surprised.)

    Did you start receiving more traffic all of a sudden as your PR went up? No.

    You are just spoiling for a fight aren't you? :) Well, as I said, the two are interlinked. It depends on how you make your money regardless of the traffic. (My traffic levels are just fine by the way.) So... Let us newbies have a bit of fun with the PR Update, and then you can go on your way and create some extra traffic, as obviously that is what gives you a hard-on.

    PR on my site went down with this update but my traffic increased and is still increasing.

    I was actually expecting my PR to go up, so I'm a bit confused lol.

    That's not strange, google tend to do that, usually it gives my new sites pr3 but takes it on the next update. Something like initial boost.

    My three months old site went from PR0 to PR2 today. Also reached the top 10 results for my main keyword and finally started receiving some traffic. However the traffic is still in several people per day. I am now following Kimi´s/LBrown´s blueprint building web 2.0 properties and file shares.

    While PR doesn't directly correlate with rankings, it is indeed a measure directly from google on how "strong" a particular site is. Kind of a weak, lagging indicator, as PR is actually calculated in realtime but they batch the updates and push out a snapshot to the toolbar.

    I don't go all hardcore and obsess over it, but I do keep track of where my pages go and so forth.. if anything it can tell me if I have a bad ratio of homepage-to-subpage links, which is important post penguin/panda.

    That said, my sites did see a rise, so I'm happy. Any positive news in this current SEO climate is good for me!

    While some may say PR doesn't matter for many advertisers (including many of the very big ones) they pay attention to this along with Alexa. I had a dip down on my PR too, but I hadn't checked for broken links on my site which I normally do every week and G doesn't like broken links. I'd also not posted as many articles as normal when I was PR4 so they dipped me to a PR3, but that's easy enough to fix.

    Definitely check your site for broken links since that does have an affect on rankings. If you don't know how, just use broken link checker WP plugin (free), and it'll find everything for you to fix. Sometimes, it's not always all about the traffic for G. Like a strange girlfriend, they like to pretend to be way more complex than they actually are!
