Google Pagerank Update 2013

Google Page-rank Update 2013

When Is The Next Page-rank Update?

June 16, 2013 – By: Steve Kenneth
Canada Web Services predication of the next Google pagerank update will be by the end of JUNE, 2014

Google has been updating its pagerank the last few years quarterly and it is well over due for the next pagerank update.  The last update for this year and the only Google pagerank update was in february, 2013.  Everyone expected that the update after this was going to be in May of 2013. However, it is now June 16 ( fathers day here in Canada ) and no pagerank update as of yet.


The history of the last updates as far as I know and logged are as follows:

  • 6 December 2013
  • 4 February 2013
  • 7 November 2012
  • 2 August 2012
  • 2 May 2012
  • 7 February 2012
  • 7 November 2011
  • 1st Week August 2011
  • JULY 2011
  • JUNE 2011
  • JANUARY 2011
  • April 2010
  • Dec 31, 2009
  • 30 October 2009
  • 27/28 May 2009
  • June 2009
  • 1 / 2 April 2009
  • 30-31 December 2008
  • 27 September 2008
  • 26 July 2008
  • 29 April 2008
  • 9 January 2008
  • 26 October 2007
  • 28 April 2007

As you can see, February 4, 2013 was the last Google pagerank update. One reason why it could be late for the second pagerank update is the new updates of 2013 of the Google algorithm and Google has simply been too busy with these updates that they put their pagerank update on the back burner until things were cleared up and spammed sites where penalized and other sites were rewarded because of their good, unique, and fast loading content.

Link Juice Calucation For Pagerank

What is Google Pagerank and what does Google say about the benefits of its pagerank?

Google pagerank is a formula that Google uses to calculate the importance of a web page. This is calculated per web page, not website in general. The formula for the pagerank is used by determining the link juice power from one site who links to another site. The higher the link juice of that site, the better chances the linked site will get more link juice as a result and could increase their own pagerank. Pagerank tell visitors how important or how popular the website or blog is and how many relevant content websites are sending links or have backlinks attached to them to this website.

Linking to a non-relevant website is not good and linking to a website with no pagerank is not very helpful in bringing up your own pagerank. You need to have backlinks from a relevant site that has good content and good ranking already to have any chance of increasing your own pagerank. With the new updates coming out by Google, pagerank is calculated by important websites and the backlinking strategies that used to work, simply do not anymore. Having backlinks in Google is also a very good way to improve your ranking and a good way to do this is by using Google Plus. Visit our building up backlinks page to learn more.

For complete details on pagerank and the history of pagerank, please visit our pagerank page here.

Google says:

Webpages with a higher PageRank are more likely to appear at the top of Google search results“.  Another point by Google Matt Cutts – “Google pagerank is not an indication of how a blog or a website will perform in Google search“.

Check your pagerank by going to our pagerank check tool.

What if Google decides not to use its pagerank system anymore?

I think that Google will come out with a pagerank update because it has been extremely popular and most people look forward to working very hard to build up their pagerank. I myself am one of these people. I have worked extremely hard on this new look and website blog for Canada Web Services and have added several high quality backlinks to good relevant websites and blogs and I am hoping and praying that Google will continue to use its pagerank system.  besides us web masters, there are the average people out there that use this as an indication to see if the website or blog is safe and ranked high by the Google king. People trust and respect Google and their decisions and if Google says its a good pagerank site, people will more likely to click on it compared to a lower pagerank site.  So, having said that, I do believe that Google will release its update sometime this June or early July.

Google will most likely by looking at this year, lower their pagerank updates to only 3. This is my guess on what Google will be doing with its pagerank updates in the future. Only Google knows this and the BIG “G” will keep on surprising us each and every day as Google is the biggest power-house on the internet today.  

My suggestion for increasing your pagerank would be to ONLY link to relevant sites that have similar content as you do and link to good quality authority sites. ( sites that have a great pagerank and Alexa rating ). I wish you all the best with the new updates from Google and with the next pagerank update whenever it happens. :)


Update – December 2013

Google finally came out with the page rank and most of my sites were effected and I gained positive affects on my sites and gained page ranks instead of loosing any one. I am sure there are many people that were surprised and effected by this update by Google.

    Thank you for your recent posting on this topic. I have been waiting for several days or weeks for the next Google pagerank update and keep checking each day because I have several websites and blogs that should go up/down in the pagerank department. I hope it is very soon and I know I am not the only one waiting on this. Getting a pagerank increase is like Christmas day. Its very exciting to see your pages go up for all the hard work you put into building up your pagerank.

    I run for Canada Web Services as a partner and I we all have put in lots of hard work to get this website ranking better. The Alexa rating is dropping each day and we are getting lots of traffic, but it would be excellent to get a good pagerank out of it as well.

    Thanks again for your updated post on this as I have been waiting patiently and hoping for the best.

      Hi Canada Web Services!

      Thank goodness we have decided to add all of our postings on one website, three websites were too much for me to handle! I look forward in working with you on Canada Web Services, I love this site!

      Regarding Pagerank – I cannot wait as well for the next pagerank update. It seems to be taking for ever to get the next pagerank of 2013 happening. I don’t know what the issue is with Google, and maybe it was because of their latest updates that out them off track, but I hope they continue the pagerank system because we all have worked very hard at building up our backlinks on relevant content websites and followed all their guidelines. I really hope web masters get rewarded soon enough by this pagerank system



  2. Steve Ellias  June 17, 2013

    Ha Ha, Thanks Elizabeth,

    There is absolutely no secret that Google has been up to something new here. By the results of the previous years, the pagerank has been updated by Google every three months. So far, its been over 4 months and no pagerank update just yet. I also hope they continue their pagerank update system because people really rely on Google for their importance of a web page.


  3. John James  June 17, 2013

    Thank you for your post on pagerank. I too have been waiting for the next pagerank updates. I wonder if Google knows that everyone is waiting for this and why it is taking so long to get done.

    Regarding traffic – I have seen so many websites at the top of Google that are not ranked at all or have very little pagerank. I think that if the website has good information on it and it is search engine optimized good, this should be able to be enough to get good traffic generically from Google. Having said that, I would still like to see the pagerank update happen soon because I am very excited about seeing some of my sites go up and hopefully not loose the ranking they have now.


  4. Jeramia  June 17, 2013

    I have been waiting for the Google Pagerank update just like everyone else. I believe it will come, but when Google decides this is anyone guess.

    I do not think that pagerank is that important anymore and have seen it with my own eyes in Google when top websites with absolutely no pagerank status gets ranked higher in the search results than other sites that do have a pagerank. I think the biggest thing here is the page content and other important search engine optimization factors,

    I do hope the pagerank will be updated by Google soon, but will not count my chickens before they hatch.

    • Steve Ellias  June 18, 2013

      I think that if there is no Google Pagerank update this year, there will be a lot of un-happy individuals. Myself included in this mass of people.

      The update from Google should have happened based upon experience and by example updates in the past. This is most likely the biggest gap they have had since they started their pagerank update. I would have to check the days again, but its been a long time in between Google Pagerank updates. Lets all cross our fingers that it will happen soon. We all might be very surprised at the out-come if there is an update or not.


  5. Jazz  June 24, 2013

    You are right. Clearly, Google is up to something. I saw a drop in traffic on one of my sites recently. Let us hope it does not stop updating PR.

  6. Steve Ellias  June 24, 2013

    My sites are not dropping, but rather increasing in visitors. Some of my websites anyhow. I don’t know what is going on with Google, but Google does what Google does and no-one can say otherwise. I am sure it did not become one of the richest online businesses for doing things that did not make sense. If they think that the PR system should be cut and taken out, they have done this for a good reason. I can only hope they did not because I really look forward to the PR updates to see what my clients and myself have received as like a Christmas present. Its like Christmas when your site gets a PR update.

    Lets all cross our fingers and hope for the best, but if it does not come or if they lower the updated intervals, this means Google has good reasons.

  7. Steve Ellias  June 24, 2013

    To all who reads this, there is no way to tell what Google does and we are all just presuming including myself and going by past actions when it comes to Pagerank. No-One except for Google can tell you the exact date, time, and hour of the next pagerank update. Even so, its still nice to try and calculate, predict, or make an educated guess regarding the pagerank system.

    So, Having said that…
    My predication for the next update was between now and the end of June. I also feel that Google will only update their pagerank system 2 or 3 times a year. This gives people lots of time to build up their ratings, backlinks, and site. I also feel that the next pagerank will surprise much people including myself because with all the Google updates in the past little while, I am sure there will be a lot of sites that also get effected with the PR update by Google.

    If I recall, February 4 was the last update and most of us can only assume what is going on and why it has not been updated the second time this year. February 4 – June 24 = 4 months and 20 days. Almost 5 months has passed since the last Google pagerank update and this would be an indication of what is to come. This is unless the latest Panda and Penguin updates have been keeping them off the PR track. To be honest with all of you, I am a little excited as well as nervous to see what is in-store for the PR system. Lets just be a little bit more patient and see what happens, that is all we actually can do. ( unless we work for Google ) :)

    Update For Google Pagerank

    I have been doing lots of research and searching for articles on Google and by Matt Cutts and I think I know why there has not been an update for pagerank as of yet. Google is working on its Penguin 2.0 Update and rolling this out since May and with all these updates, they are very busy working on removing spam sites and sites associated with spammers. After all the updates by Penguin 2.0, then they will release their Pagerank update. This is the best answer I can come up with be all the articles I have read. Here is some more information regarding the Panda and Penguin update. I would also suggest you view the video by Matt Cutts on this page.

    Matt Cutts talks about what is in store for the new Penguin 2.0 Update and he says it will be rolling out within the summer months. This video was taken in May.

    If anyone else has any in-sight on what is going on, please post your response here.

    Well, my prediction and tons of others predication are once again wrong. Google has still not done an update for their pagerank system. This could mean that Google will only be doing a couple a year, or this could be the beginning of the pagerank death – the end of the pagerank. However, you would think that if this is the case, all the sites with a PR would loose its PR because it does not exist. No, I think the more closer answer for this scenario is that Google will only be doing a couple updates each year. These updates will be more precise, accurate, and more closer to the truth than ranking sites with false links, bad links, and people using links as a way to earn a living on the internet. These sites are done and farewell to each and everyone of you people polluting our internet. Hurrah for Google for taking action on these link farms and bad link sites.

    I believe Google is just concentrating on great quality of website and their relevant content per page basis. Once they get a really good picture of this from a site, they can better give a more accurate standing in their search results. As far as pagerank, we will just have to wait and see, wait, and wait some more it looks like.

    I think overtime, people will start going from PageRank to Domain Authority.
    We’re 5 months and 2 days since the last update. I think Google Penguin has really
    put the smash down on Pagerank as google wants to rid the web of spam and selling links,
    which of course is driven by PR. I always did like the Google Pagerank, kind of a trophy
    for knowing you done a pretty good job with your SEO.

  11. Pradeep  July 11, 2013

    Thank you sir

      After speaking with several people and online businesses, you are not the only one that is getting effected by Google.

      Personal, this is really bizarre on Google’s part for not having a pagerank update yet so far, but, with all the spam that black hat strategies that have sprung up as a result of the pagerank, it would not surprise me if Google took the PR system right out, or revamped it completely.

      Lets think about this.. What are these black hat strategies concentrating on? PageRank – Backlinks, without a PR system, they will have nothing to sell people and there will be a lot of online link building firms that will go out of business. Google knows that this will put a lot of businesses out of commission, but on the other hand, it will stop a lot of illegal activity and selling of backlinks and black hat businesses from operating.

      Either Google will dispose of the PR system, or they will come out with a very sophisticated system to detect these so called links building strategies and only give rewards in the form of Pagerank to deserving internet sites. The pagerank system will also be working close at hand with the Penguin and Panda system to make an overall result of ones site.

  12. Andy P  July 12, 2013

    Google PageRank has been a steady talk within lots of forums and blogs as well as the Google updates such as panda and penguin. I am a little surprised however that it has taken this long and still continues to take time on what Google is really up to. No one knows and Matt Cutts is not even saying anything about the Google updates lately, so I think we are all going to be really shocked at the out-come of what Google is planning on doing because its a total mystery and this might be a good thing or a bad thing for honest bloggers like me and you.

    Great article and I also like your other articles you wrote. Straight and to the point. Hopefully blogs like yours and mine will benefit from the Google transition and changes that are certain to happen soon.

    Best Regards and Good Luck!

    It’s basically a waiting game. I’ve googled ‘confirmed google page ranking update 2013′ and landed on this post.

    Nice strategy!

  14. Robert P  August 28, 2013

    I have just read through some news articles and from a Google source that they are distinguishing the Page Rank system. It will no longer exist and Google will no longer use this Page Rank system because they use other more sophisticated systems like Panda and Penguin.

    I just thought I would add this to your pots here because it’s done in my opinion.

    There is certainly a great deal to learn about this topic.
    I really like all of the points you made.
