    Did your rankings improve? Did your traffic go up? Did you make more money? If not, whatever PR increase you got isn't worth shit.

    Nobody should even see a change in their rankings. All the PR update is is a snapshot in time. If someone went from PR2 to PR4, they could have really been a PR4 10 months ago, its just Google didn't update it for a year.

    In fact, you could be showing PR4 today and tomorrow that high PR link you had disappears, and you won't even know you're a real PR2 again for another year, if Google takes that long to update.

    But in general, yes high PR = high rankings for me anyways :D

    My PR0 domain was already making money, it is making the same amount while it is PR5 now. Page rank does not matter. Maybe it will increase my site price in case i want to sell it, because people don't like buying PR0 domains.

    I used to think the same way but recently I feel differently. Basically before Penguin I was able to game the results with relevancy only. Thousands of PR0/NA links but on related pages got me to the top and outranked PR5-6 sites. Nowadays you have to add some authority to the relevancy or you will be hit. And for me the closest thing that shows authority in the eyes of Google is pagerank.

    If I offer you PR6 and PR0 site with exact ammount of traffic you would probably go for PR0?
    The point is, for somebody PR means shit cause they are not earning money with high PR, for others having high PR means more money, it really depends on the type of clients you have.

    Well I dont know about PR, but taken from my income report this month-

    Last month Google sent 2,710 visitors across 436 keywords which isn't bad when you consider I have given link building the proverbial middle finger.

    But that's nothing when compared with this month's 5,961 visitors across 828 keywords! That's an extra 3,251 visits from Google in January than December!

    PR is worthless for those who don't know how to cash it. :violin:

    PR is nothing besides showing off and selling links. Thats that.

    3 sites stayed the same, 3 went up by one PR point each.

    Traffic is good, and perhaps almost maxxed out on those three anyway. Over the million uniques per month on the main one, and between 300,000 and 750,000 on the other 2. Everyone in the various niches seems to know what the sites are and probably has them bookmarked, so my traffic rise has barely been 4% - and that is for some long tail searches by the looks of things.

    Nice, but not life changing.

    Increase in PR often spells a time to diversify. New content and new offers get the benefit of PR trickle-down if inter linked correctly. Which in my experience is about the only practical use there is for PR.
    4 times out of 5 it has feck all impact on traffic or ranking, but can help you "spread" authority and increase your sites footprint and commerciality more effectively, and that in itself is a very good thing if handled correctly

    well, I don't know about PR.. but G must of have done something more these days.. On one of my servers where i have lots of sites and i don't bother checking the stats for each of them, i am watching the Bandwidth graph. Since couple of days the output has gone from 4mbit/s to 7mbit/s and alexa rank jumped with about 1.5k in no time..

    It has increased my ranking actually. I have a site which is nearly a month old that jumped to a pr 5 (from 0, bare new website) and together with the PR update I went about 50 positions up.

    This PR update so far = "The Rich Get Richer"

    Internal pages getting more backlinks|keywords indexed, PR going up, and SERP improving.

    The strategy? The same ones since the beginning.

    The day has gotten better since this morning.

    SEO is not dying, neither is the reward for quality
