    Default Toolbar Pagerank not visible anymore..

    lots of peeps seeing no PR anywhere and there's a lot alk of G discontinuing it once their patent on it expires in 2011 (this would seem plausible given their big downplaying of its importance of late)

    Looks like link brokers etc will need to rely on different metrics (eg mozrank) or social metrics.

    interesting stuff.

    I hope they've got ride of it, sick of people only linking to certain PR sites or putting high valuations on sites just because of it's high PR when in actual fact PR is such a small factor.

    If they do get rid of it they will still have something similar to rank sites, but I am guess but will probably never make it public.

    Getting rid of PageRank from the toolbars != Getting rid of Pagerank.

    People are obsessed with it and base it for a whole range of different things. Just cause they remove it so we can not see it does not mean Google can not see it.

    Going to make a few link dealers unemployed I'm sure. Certain there will be some sort of new bar up there in it's place however.

    It appears the pagerank checkers aren't working because Google have changed the URL used to query it - see this post, originally posted by the OP - http://whatculture.com/technology/ha...r-pagerank.php

    So, its not dead, and i expect the plugins will be updated soon

    That is exactly my point... in response to what you had said "If they do get rid of it they will still have something similar to rank sites, but I am guess but will probably never make it public."
