Surprising Google Page Rank Update December 2013



In January 2011 I wrote a post covering how Google had updated Page Rank for the first time in eight months.Today I can confirm Google have updated Page Rank this time there has been a 10 month gap since the last update.However while the 8 month gap in 2011 was surprising because in previous years we would see three updates yearly this time it’s actually surprising we got the update this side of of the new year.

Followers of Matt Cutts the head of Google Webspam might have seen Matt had predicted there would be no update at least until next year.In fact some had predicted Page Rank was dead.
