Weird Sabahan.com PageRank shift – 0 to 6 in just over a month?
Posted on 5th April, 2006
I am not sure what’s really happening here but this is just weird. Today I noticed my Google Toolbar shows Sabahan.com has a PageRank of 6. A large increased from the previous 0 PageRank and at this moment, this blog is not even two months old!
I know the Google toolbar PageRank value may not be very accurate so I double checked the value by querying Google’s various data centers. What I’ve found is interesting, apparently 8 out of the 18 data centers currently agree that Sabahan.com has a PageRank of 6.
Below is the screenshot of my current PageRank status across several data centers.
I am incline to believe that this is just a bug in the system or perhaps a temporarily fluke during the update. The value may just as well revert back to the correct one later.
But if Sabahan.com PageRank were to increase that much, I am not going to complain. If that’s the case, I’d have to trace my previous steps to find what I’ve done to have my PageRank value increased significantly in a relatively short amount of time. And you my loyal reader will be the first to know any possible findings from this blog.
Several of my other new blogs such as OffbeatEnough.com has also experienced the same increase in their PageRank.
OK, lets just wait and see what will happen in a couple of days after things settle down.
- Fast forward six hours from my initial posting, now 14 out of 18 datacenters are showing a PageRank 6 for sabahan.com!!
- I also noticed Google has started indexing links pointing to Sabahan.com. But my last check showed Google has reverted back to no results again.
- Google Toolbar displays 0 PageRank again but the datacenters have shown an increased in the number of datacenters that say 6 PageRank
My feeling is that this volatility is just temporary before I get my official, perhaps lower PageRank but it’s still intriguing to see how the system can fluctuate so much within a short period of time.
This is getting interesting…
