No Google Toolbar PageRank Update for 2013 – Confirmed!

Leave a comment

It’s been 8 months since Google last updated the little green PageRank bar we see on its official toolbar for Internet Explorer and unofficial extensions and add-ons for Chrome, Firefox etc. This week, however, there seems further proof that toolbar PageRank is coming to and end.

On Twitter, Niels Bosch asked Matt Cutts if there will be a PageRank update before the end of the year.

Matt Cutts replied saying “I would be surprised if that happened.”

A little while later Matt Cutts published this video, which is in response to a similar question from Dileep.

All of this doesn’t mean that PageRank is dead. It just means that we won’t know the PageRank of any given page. Google still uses PageRank to help it rank pages, and it adjusts the metrics internally every day.
