Earlier many webmasters speculated that there was a Toolbar Pagerank Update on-going in December 2008.
Today just before New Year’s eve Google surprised everyone with their Toolbar PageRank update rolled out to every website. Majority of the upcoming sites that I have seen gained PR, some has lost and for some it stayed the same.
I’m particularly not fascinated by Toolbar PR. Toolbar PR is just a small representation of your site’s actual “Pagerank”. As long as your site is ranking well for the terms that you target and you are getting substantial amount of traffic from the search engines, you are doing just fine.
So unless you plan on selling your pagerank via links, I don’t see any reason for you to be excited or sad for any positive/negative Pagerank changes.
