What’s Up With Google PageRank?

A PageRank update just occurred on the first on November, although my sites aren’t reflecting any changes from the last update in May.  I haven’t heard much buzz from the domain community about their PageRank updates this round either.    Anyone have positive or negative changes to report?


I found this article by Barry Schwartz of SearchEngineLand.com that points out that PageRank data has disappeared from the Google webmaster tools reports.  According to Barry’s article a rep from Google Webmaster Central said that webmasters should not focus as much on their PageRank and that’s why it was removed from the webmaster tools.  So what’s next… Remove it from the Google toolbar?  Stop the updates?  Surely, Google can come up with a better page ranking model that does more than just spit out a number between one and ten.
