    Page Rank on inner pages of a new site


    A client of mine has just launched a new site. When the Page Rank update happened this week we noticed that the homepage has a PR of 0 (not surprising for a new site that only has a few links so far).

    The weird thing is that several of the inner pages have PR of 1 or 2. There are no links pointing to these pages.

    How can this be?

    I saw another site yesterday that had PR of 5, but an inner page with no external links had a PR of 6.

    I don't really care much about what the PR is, but I'm just wondering how this can happen.

    I asked this question about a year ago and I don't think there is an answer, visible PR just seems a bit wacky sometimes for no obvious reason.

    Yes, it's lag in the Toolbar and is thus, inaccurate. I've seen something similar to state it's limited to ToolBar reporting.

    Cool PageRank is determined by incoming links

    Interesting observation. PageRank is determined by the incoming links to the webpage. The information released by Google is out of date at the time of release.
    I do not think we can say for certain that a webpage has no links in the Google index. Google withholds most of this information.
    Hope this helps.

    Regards
