This probably won't last for long, but it's uses are obvious. Apparently, you can check if Google has penalized a domain or not by simply adding the word hyves as a subdomain and then checking the PageRank of that subdomain. IE: hxxp://hyves.digg.com/ = PR7 Now there's 3 possible PR scores you can have, and each mean a different thing. PR7 means that the domain is perfectly fine PR4 means that the domain got penalized by Google PR0 means that the domain got banned in Google So far all my domains are PR7. I have yet to find any PR4 or PR0. If you guys find any of those results, please share.
