“Google” has already said so many times that one should not give attention to (Google Toolbar PageRank) score from now on wards, but still the page ranks given earlier to so many sites haven’t been zeroed out.

When will Google update its Page Rank again

The last time Google Toolbar PageRank got updated was on 5/6-December-2013  and in accordance with Google, they will not be updating (the metric) any more.

John Muleller {from Google} was once asked during Hangout that when is Google going to update its page rank again?. In reply of which John Mullellar responded, ‘Probably Never”

He said:

Probably NeverThis is something I think we’re stopped updating, at least the toolbar PageRank that is shown. I don’t know the future of the Toolbar in general, but at least from the PageRank side, this is probably something we’re not going to update.

I myself have forgotten everything about (Toolbar PageRank), instead now I am focusing more towards:

  • Google-Panda-Update
  • Google-Penguin-Update
  • Quality-Link-Building
  • Learning Search Engine Optimization

When will Google update its Page Rank Again?

There is no doubt about that Google has got history of updating (Toolbar Pagerank) & they always update it just when they feel like doing so, however webmasters have been already informed clearly that they should not expect Toolbar Page Rank to update another time.

What does Page Rank actually means?

Google says:

PageRank relies on the uniquely democratic nature of the web by using its vast link structure as an indicator of an individual page’s value. In essence, Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B.

Google also said:

Webpages with a higher PageRank are more likely to appear at the top of Google search results.

How can you check Google Page Rank?

Is Page Rank totally useless in 2015?

It mainly depends on what your purpose of using Page Rank is!

In other words, Its not actually pointless because as per my observation, “Google” still might be using Page Rank today to select the most reputable and authentic source from duplicate texts found on various sites.

In accordance with Matt Cutts:

As a reminder, supplemental results aren’t something to be afraid of; I have got pages from my site in the supplemental results, for example. A complete software rewrite of the infrastructure for supplemental results launched in Summer 2005, and the supplemental results continue to get fresher. Having urls in the supplemental results doesn’t mean that you have some sort of penalty at all; the main determinant of whether a url is in our main web index or in the supplemental index is PageRank.

If you used to have pages in our main web index and now they’re in the supplemental results, a good hypothesis is that we might not be counting links to your pages with the same weight as we have in the past. The approach I’d recommend in that case is to use solid white-hat (ethical) SEO to get high-quality links (e.g. editorially given by other sites on the basis of merit).

He further says:

“It can also be the case that links that used to carry more weight for a website might not be counting as much.”


“As I said in January: The approach I’d recommend in that case is to use solid white-hat (ethical) SEO to get high-quality links (e.g. editorially given by other sites on the basis of merit).
