What is pagerank?
PageRank is a link analysis algorithm used by the Google Internet search engine that assigns a numerical weighting to each element of a hyperlinked set of documents, such as the World Wide Web, with the purpose of "measuring" its relative importance within the set. The algorithm may be applied to any collection of entities with reciprocal quotations and references. The numerical weight that it assigns to any given element E is also called the PageRank of E and denoted by PR(E).
PageRank Technology: PageRank reflects our view of the importance of web pages by considering more than 500 million variables and 2 billion terms. Pages that we believe are important pages receive a higher PageRank and are more likely to appear at the top of the search results.
PageRank also considers the importance of each page that casts a vote, as votes from some pages are considered to have greater value, thus giving the linked page greater value. We have always taken a pragmatic approach to help improve search quality and create useful products, and our technology uses the collective intelligence of the web to determine a page's importance.
The best source to understand and learn things about pagerank I found is this website.

I'll start with a first comment, as that's why I made this thread (I have a question). Does somebody know when the next PR update will be, I thought the last one was February so the next one should be in June if I'm correct?
What do you NetBuilders think?
IMO no body knows when will be the next update, the last was in April, generally it is after three months.
Since last 6 months or so, pagerank is fluctuating. It happens anytime.. Some of my sites and blogs had their PRs up and down a week back. Pagerank is uncertain since last few months.
It depends upon quality and number of backlinks achieved over certain time, as far I have an experience.
An interesting fact about pagerank:
Full article with a lot more information here: Seo tutorial - seo recommendations - seo tips - practical seoEach page has a real PageRank value known only to Google. To derive a displayed PageRank range for their ToolBar, they use a logarithmic scale as shown in this table
Real PR ---> ToolBar PR
1-10 ---> 1
10-100 ---> 2
100-1000 ---> 3
1000-10.000 ---> 4
This shows that the PageRank ranges displayed on the Google ToolBar are not all equal. It is easy, for example, to increase PageRank from one to two, while it is much more difficult to increase it from six to seven.

I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

Pagerank got updated today! ProxB.Com now went from PR3 (that I got in one month) to PR4 (after 3 months)
That seems to be great, now the only thing I want is ProxB to get better in search engines
