Google decided not to update Google PageRank

While surfing internet I found hundreds of article about ‘Google PageRank Update’.

People in online business specially SEO, Webmaster, Blogger and ‘ecommerce site owners’ are very much interested in Google PageRank update.

They do lots of effort to get high PageRank.

Google update its PageRank database on quarterly basis (from last two year it is updating PR regularly on quarterly basis).

So people are predicting that next Google PageRank update will be in first or second week of May 2013.

Most of my blogger friends have done lots of link building through different ways to get high PR this time.

They are regularly having an eye or PR Tools and updates from different sources about Google PR update.

Google PageRank Update May 2013, Google PageRank Update, Neat Google PageRank Update

While thinking all about PR and craziness of people about it a naughty thought came into my naughty mind.

What will happen if Google decide not to update Google PageRank?

I know you guys want to kill me after reading above line but friends it’s my imagination and there is no control on my imagination.


So just give a thought to it.

There will be different reaction from different people.

Backlink Seller – They will be the happiest person after reading this news; because they have made lots of money in last 3 months (since they get High PR) by selling backlink and now they were thinking that Google will lower their rank this time.

But if Google decides not to update PageRank then these people will celebrate it like a festival as their PageRank will remain same till next update and they can fetch some more dollars through link selling.

Newbies- It will be shocking news for them as after entering into online world the first term they heard was Google PageRank.

Newbies are most excited people for Google PageRank; for them having a PageRank from Zero to PR-1 is like having their first salary.

It will be a demotivating factor for some newbies who thinks that no PR means no success.

SEO and Webmaster- It will be a discussion topic for them. Few people will share their research analysis on it.

Few big player in ranking industry will start their own ranking system to give you an idea what could be your ranking this time.

Value it but not obsesses for it

I know it feels good when you see that long green bar for your domain but it is not good to be obsessed for it.

PageRank is a way to show others how valuable your website is; but it is not the only way to decide authority of a website/blog.

If you are regularly providing natural, useful, unique and fresh content to your user then all other things will come automatically with it.

Google updates PageRank Regularly

Google updates your PageRank on regular basis (almost daily) but it release it for public once in a quarter; otherwise SEO and webmaster start guessing Google Algorithm by regularly watching PR changes.

So this was my naughty thought, I know after reading my title you were about to get a heart attack; I am really sorry for that.

Over to You

I really want to know your first reaction after reading the title of my article? Please share it with us. It will be a fun.

I am wishing all the best to all of you for next Google PageRank Update.

    Ha ha. Good one bro. You are thinking that you gave a naughty thought, but I don’t think it. Because last month somewhere on a reputable source like Seobook or SearchEngineJournal I read that Google PR is going to diminish in the coming year and Google in turn will rather weigh the site in a metrics. So this is also possible!

    When I googled out “google pagerank may 2013” your post pops up and I was shocked but thank god it was just an imagination. My blog is on pr 2 for last two years so this time I am eagerly waiting

  40. If Google decides not to do a Pagerank update, there would definitely be great tension in the blogosphere. The next fear in everyone’s mind would be whether Google wants to scrape PR like they did to iGoogle, Google reader and the rest. The fear of losing their monetary investments would also come in. SEO companies would be thrown into panic because their means of livelihood would then be threatened.

    However, those who have a lot to do in terms of cleaning up their messy houses would celebrate as it would give them ample opportunity to get things in order before the next updates.

  41. Looking at the trends, Google use to update PR atleast 5 or 6 times but recently they have decreased the frequency. It was updated only once in 2010 and 2012 four times.

    Can’t actually predict things from Google!
