Google Pagerank is a metric to mesaure a websites authority.Like say if many websites try to rank for a keyword google will take sites with high PR into main consideration next along with other metric. Page rank now updates only after a few months .Last roll out was on 27 july 2011.
Google PR dropped to zero ?
Google just updated the URL which addons used to query it.
Majority of people seems very happy due to Google page rank disappearance and some of them claimed its dead forever.Even though ispsd has PR of Zero,its very important metric for me to make articles.
Are there any working addons now ?
I tried many addons which displays pagerank, before i knew about this change and none worked.There is a solution which you can try.
How to Make it work by yourself in Firefox ?

To all the peeps saying that PR is showing as 0 – Mine works fine on Firefox 4.01 but my custom built PHP PR checker does not.
