Re: When does Google normally update their pageranks ?
The last time Google updated PR display, in the toolbar, was in mid or
late October. Until then it was like an 80 some day wait.
The rumor I heard is that Google is thinking of updating the PR [in
terms of displayed PR graph on the toolbar and in the directory]
around every three months or so. If that is true then the next update
won't be until late December to mid January time frame.
PR alone won't help in rankings though. You can have a PR5 page beaten
out by PR3 or PR4 page on a search. *shrug*
The above two thoughts would seem to support the notion that Google is
sending a less than subtle message to folks that there is more to
ranking well on that SE than gathering/hording of PR thoughts shared
in the past. Continue getting quality backlinks - by all means - as
that is still good for any SE; just don't focus on PR or keep one's
eye on the toolbar graph as that display may be woefully out of date
in infomation shared with you. .
