"403 Forbidden" for PageRank URL?

Am I the only one who gets a "403 Forbidden" message, when I try to find out my site's PageRank, when I use the methods described here[1]?

It works for me, for example this link reports Google.com's PageRank (a 10):

google.com/search?client=navcl ...

For what it's worth, I've created a simple Perl script that can be used to monitor the PR of a list of URLs via RSS:

persistent.info/archives/2004/ ...

It works for me but of course, the checksum number must be the correct one for the URL! If you enter the wrong number, the page will display the "Forbidden" error message.

The point of the checksum calculator is that you can write *your own* scripts. So for example, I as webmaster could add a PR preview bar in search results at findforward.com

... except I prefer to play within Google's ruleset :)

be sure tu include http://

and / if the URL does not end in filename

example.com/
example.com/archive/file.html

As the journal entry says, that's a Perl script that you are meant to run on your own web server.

keep in mind that Google could block queries from a specific website if it determines a violation of TOS.

Also, Google can change the checksum calculation at any time, though this would require an update of the toolbar.

If you are looking up a URL make sure to use the URL as it shows up in the Google result (with WWW, without WWW, etc., just as the Google result, including slashes). At least that worked for me...

Thanks for the tips, but I still have no success at all.

I have uploaded the file on my webserver, executed it (had a look at it, that is), grabbed the checksum, replaced "[checksum]" with my "checksum" (without the brackets) in the Pagerank URL that Philip provided and modified "example.com" to my homepage URL.

I do end my Pagerank URL with a slash ("/"), include the " \" prefix at the beginning and use a homepage URL with no "www" (since it shows up that way in Google's results), but nothing.

Hmm...

Konstantinos what is the URL you try to check? By the way, I also pointed to an URL which does the checksum calculation for you, no need to upload and execute the PHP provided (unless you want to).

Philipp, I've just sent you an e-mail about this.

The problem is the extra ':info' that appears in the url if you use the example URL provided. Remove ':info' from the url & it should work.

Andrew, nope, it doesn't work with ":info" removed either.
