Pagerank Blackout?

A co-worker just noticed, and pointed out to me that the PR tool in Firefox and IE has stopped working just now. The same occurs on my system. Some big update or something else going on? Maybe Google pulling out Trusted Rank?

Anyone else seeing this? (Or does it occur often and I have not noticed before...)

There is some people freaking out on the other forums. Are they going to have any visual indicator of Trust Rank?

Exclamation Same here!

Same here...... by the way I came to the forum to see if somebody was having the same problem....... should Goolge forget the page rank or simply it is not working for something?

This seems to have been an unusual update (that began Saturday), and I think there is more in store. If PageRank is blacked out, it leads me to think there will soon be an update. I also recall there was a brief PageRank rollback during the recent update as well.

Maybe PR will go away.

Well it is a total blackout.It can be an update but chances are there that the PR can be removed.It has been said in last few months that PR is not of much importance but a complete black out is a surprise no doubt.
Well we will have to wait and see what is in store.

Maybe it's not a Google "problem", maybe they've removed it deliberately.

I mean the only people who are using PR tools are people who are doing some sort of seo (most Google users have probably never heard of PR) - indeed there is a whole industry now based on selling high pr links.

Maybe Google aren't happy about that....

The PR tool is not working, that's clear, but does anyone know what is happening at a server level, is the server not responding, giving nonsense or something?

Be interesting to see if it sticks..... haha Alexa anyone?

Cheers,
Paz.
