Longest Time Ever Between PR Updates


It's official, According to the McDar Backlink and Google PR update time line this has been the longest time between Google PR updates ever, At 122 days.

18-Feb-06 - 122 days - (as of the 6th of July 2006)
19-Oct-05 - 97 days
14-Jul-05 - 83 days
22-Apr-05 - 111 days
01-Jan-05 - 87 days
06-Oct-04 - 106 days
22-Jun-04 - 22 days
31-May-04 - 38 days
23-Apr-04 - 16 days
07-Apr-04 - 18 days
20-Mar-04 - 38 days
11-Feb-04 - 16 days
26-Jan-04 - 15 days
11-Jan-04 - 18 days
24-Dec-03 - 18 days
06-Dec-03 - 16 days

So what can we get from this extended period since the last PR update? That would be open to individual interpretation, But i think we would all agree that it means there is something going on behind the scenes.

Personally i would think it means Google are trying to take the importance webmasters attach to PR away. There are many factors that make PR flawed, inaccurate and open to abuse, But the biggest factor is that it, in a way, promotes spamming, Spamming such as blog spam and comment spam. PR gives new webmasters the impression that they can rank well in search engines simply by getting thousands of backlinks, No matter how those links were achieved.

By the time the next PR update does come around, I would bet we will see a lot of sites losing PR because of PR algo tweaks google are in the process of doing.

Something is amiss. There was a PR update in March after the Big Daddy infrastructure rollout completed. Some people have said that only pages without previous PR were updated, but an update definitely took place.

I think because that update only effected sites and pages that had PR 0 at the time of the update it's not really classed as an update, Because not every page was updated. It's now 126 days sinse the last full PR update.
