Is Toolbar PR Dead?
Check your Google toolbar. Did you notice that PR has been grayed out?
Is this a glitch? Is it a sign of things to come? Is this the End of Days?
I guess we'll need to wait at least a few days to say what is going on. There is a lot of speculation going on, but the two that I think may be on to something are:
1. Google is making a major coding change to deal with 302 redirects and page hijacking.
2. Toolbar PR is dead in order to try and stop the manipulation of SERP's through what Google considers non-natural linking. In one fell swoop, Google just may have put a ton of text link brokers out of business.
