Google Dance about to start!

Each change in display of PageRank or PR causes a stir among the SEO community and webmasters trying to get their sites to the top of the Google Rankings, not forgetting the bloggers who need high PR to command high income in writing paid posts.

From 2000 to 2003, the PR index updates tended to happen regularly about once a month. The resulting changes with now-you-see-it-now-you-don't green bar were called the Google Dance.

From 2003 Google started using an index that is updated everyday. So instead of a monthly event, small day-to-day changes, termed everflux occurs. However, this is not displayed or refreshed on the toolbar.

Lately, updated PRs are usually made visible only every 3 - 4 months. The Google Dance occurs over the course of about a week and is much overdue now.

As of Sept 10, 2007 there has not been a PR review for 133 days - the longest wait ever. Prior to this, the longest time between PR reviews was 122 days (Oct 19, 2005 to Feb 18, 2006).

As such, considering this, the Google Dance should be happening anytime now. So, keep an eye on your Google toolbar and watch your PR dance.

Won't be surprised if Google decides to call it quits as far as dancing for the pleasure and sufferings of bloggers is concerned. That will be a high reading on the Richter Scale!
