This morning I found this post about Googles official standing on this issue.
The post was based on a discussion on the Google forums about the pr issue. In amongst all the usual speculation a google employee John Mu piped up. He confirmed
“The PageRank which we use internally is continuously updated, so even if you’re not seeing a PageRank in your Toolbar, rest assured that we’ll be treating your site accordingly regardless, and will crawl, index and rank your websites appropriately. “
and for those us wanting to see the updates reflected on the toolbar he had this to say.
“We do update the Toolbar PageRank regularly, even if that’s not as regularly as some of you wish. I agree that it would be nice to have it updated more frequently. Given the time since the last update, I imagine you’ll start seeing another one in the near future.”
