Saw some forum threads about this ... which in the past have proven wrong ... but several pages that I added to my site in the last couple of months (after the last page rank update) are now showing green in the toolbar ... so I think it is legit this time.

Let the gnashing of teeth begin! ;-)

This is the first PR update since April 2007 – we are talking about 6 months – usually there is an update every 3 months

Not only are new sites being given PR – but the blog sites that were penalized this week for link selling have reclaimed their original PR

Are you sure? I can still see e.g. PR4 on SERoundtable.com...

Aaron Swartz's homepage went from PR9 to PR8, he sells links:
aaronsw.com

Just some days ago I was still seeing it as PR9, if I recall correctly.

MutatingPictures.com was registered on September 29 2007 (that's less than a month ago) and it's now at PR7...

Wow! It is a good site though!

Congrats on the PR7 for mutatingpictures ... and yea, that is a good site – content is king is rewarded!

Although yes, surprising it would move that fast and somewhat debunks the thought that PR can only move "so much" per update.

Maybe because the site received a lot of high quality link from relevant sites in a short time.

Weird. YouTube's PR is 3.

And Google.com has 9/10.

Hah. While I can't see a Google PR9, I also get the YouTube PR3. That is ridiculous. Perhaps they've been selling links. ;)

What Firefox extension is that you are using to show the pagerank in the menu Phillip?

Maybe it's just a glitch.

Ok, it's fixed now.
Google.com and Youtube.com has pagerank 10

Well, we know then that *some* of this update is not from selling links!
(i.e. if Youtube is affected, it's sure not because they sold links).

Has anyone got any idea if the change is/was "real", i.e. the difference between a PR 3 and a PR of 10 should be very obvious in SERPS which include the site?

Freiddie [PersonRank 7]

Maybe this is just an update that should've happen over years, but happened all of a sudden, creating such situations. Maybe, the some of the links that originally pointed to YouTube were outdated, and when Google decided to check them, they changed or disappeared, and Google decided to change all the PageRanks on just some particular day, making it a surprise. Maybe...

Seth Finkelstein [PersonRank 10]

There's no way www.youtube.com has a "real" PageRank of 3.

Note this is also in conflict with the supposed human review if it's a link-selling penalty (or I wouldn't want to be the QA person who missed it!)

Though I was actually looking for paid links on their homepage before, just to check (e.g. paid links in the broader sense of linking to sponsors without nofollow). I wonder how Google were to react though, would they find paid links on one of their properties! After all, there's a bit of a manual decision in the mix here, and Google would be conflicted in their interest when banning their own properties.

> There's no way www.youtube.com has a "real"

Maybe (provided this isn't just a total temporary PR glitch) some spam penalty was triggered. E.g. redundant content... they once had a thousands of same-looking page titles, for instance (though that seems to have been changed now). Not that I consider that really likely...

Keith Chan [PersonRank 10]

YouTube still gets site-links though it has PR 3.

It seems that this glitch is getting back in order.. Goog's is reverting all the PR to the old values. But this leads to the question on how Goog's views sites/PR , and why did google declare ' jihad' on the blogosphere ?

After the PR deduction of YouTube. Google again increased its PR from 3 to 8. Right now YouTube has a PR 8

Interesting, I can reproduce that here.

... and all their text link ads are nofollowed!
