Google Wishes You A Happy New Year With PageRank Update

New Year or rather a new decade is in and we would like to take the opportunity to wish all our readers and their families a very happy and prosperous 2010. Well, it is not just us wishing you prosperity. Google too is. Just when we were slipping into the new year, Google has announced a new Pagerank update and while this site of ours hasn’t benefitted from it, most other sites have.

There has been a lot of debate lately over Google’s toolbar pagerank and how much value it has for website publishers. While the company execs themselves have downplayed the significance of the toolbar pagerank, the company still continues the tradition of periodically reviewing and updating the PR.

There is apparently a tradition at Google to update pageranks on new year’s eve. As Search Engine Land, there was a PageRank update on the eve of 2009 new year too and the coincidence of the same can be seen either as Google’s way of wishing publishers (who benefitted) a happy new year or is just an incidental update. Eitherways, we would like to know if your sites have benefitted from this update. Please tell in the comments.
