Google kills the PageRank toolbar

Google kills the PageRank toolbar

Public disclosure of PageRank is done

Google has confirmed with Search Engine Land that it is removing Toolbar PageRank. That means that if you are using a tool or a browser that shows you PageRank data from Google, within the next couple weeks it will begin not to show any data at all.

About bloody time. Too many idiot SEOs and link builders are still using phrases like “a Page Rank 8 site”, which is utterly meaningless now Google is so contextual and personalised.
