Google PR is one of the most important factors that the webmasters would be interested in. And by this time I think even the beginners would be aware of what PR (Page rank) is. If I frame for you in simple terms it adds value to the search engine result pages (SERP). Though it is not the only factor that enhances the performance but backlinks, content, how old the domain is, its popularity all are taken into consideration.

Google gives PR on the scale of 1-10. PR 1 being the least famous and important as compared to PR 10 which is more famous and important in the eyes of Google. Just have a look at the schedule below:

Google PageRank Update Schedule for the year 2010 –

Last PageRank (PR) Update 31 December 2009
First 2010 PageRank (PR) Update 31 March – 3  April 2010
Second 2010 PageRank (PR) Update 30 June – 7  July 2010
Third 2010 PageRank (PR) Update 31 September – 7 October 2010
Fourth 2010 PageRank (PR) Update 31 December – 19 January 2011

Thus from the above table we can surely make some assumptions. Like if you study it carefully you can come on a conclusion that Google goes for a PR updates 4 times a year. These are all the major updates like updating the PR of the sites that already have PR 2, 3 and above. While there are also some more updates every month for new sites.

Why google has changed the PR update schedule? Why not updating every 3 months?

By think there is some change in the schedule for the last one which was supposed to be done in the month of April, but still didn’t take place. I think Google has stopped the process for a while to teach a lesson to the PR crazy webmasters. Google is already aware that the some PR hungry webmasters use to buy and sell links to get a good PR and we all know that it is an illegal practice.

So I think this is a warning to such webmasters who all are involved in wrong tactics to attain high PR. Google just wanted to change the way that webmasters are interpreting “what PR is”!! So, as I wrote in my previous articles and also as of today that “Content is King”. Focus more on the information that you want to share and there would be no looking back for you. Also there are many uncertainties when the next PR update would be as they don’t like the people who buy/sell links.

So guys it’s high time to be on track and follow all the legal and legitimate way to earn good PR. And we hope that the next update would be soon enough. If anyone is sure when the next PR update would be then kindly share with us.
