the new site (starting at no PageRank) now shows PR3. In other words
the PageRank has *not* simply been passed on. It started from scratch,
Old URL: http://blog.outer-court.com/news.php
New URL: http://www.feeeds.com/search /

a domain name change on a popular site.
The backlinks to the old URL are *shown* for the new URL, but the
SERPS do not reflect their presence.
Of course, I can't prove anything... and this does seem to contradict
Google's published statement on the subject.
Re: 301 permanent redirect didn't pass on PR
To preserve your ranking, you will want to inform any sites that
currently link to your pages of your change of address. *As long as the
links change as_you_move_your_site over to a new location, your PageRank
should not be adversely affected.*
Following that logic, all offsite links to your old url were *not*
updated at the time the site moved, hence the drop in pr.
Possibly, maybe, mostly ;-)
