17 June, 2014 Details regarding server crash and PR Icon issues
This night, 17-Jun-2014 PRchecker.info server became unaccessible probably due to power supply crash as per the details from the datacenter. The crashed hardware was replaced quite quickly, however it seems this issue resulted into problems with our PR Icon widget.

We apologize for the inconvenience and hope this issue will not make you drop our service.

9 July, 2010 PRchecker v.2.0: new web site design released
Today we have released the second version of PRChecker.info site design. In v.2.0 of page rank checker site we have improved the look, feel and usability of the web pages by adding some gradient graphics in the header, top and left navigation as well as the footer navigation links.
We have also improved the general web page formatting, fonts, colors and graphics on web pages to make clean, easy to understand and nice looking contents on all pages of the site.
So that, we suppose that the new web design looks much more professionally and now it is easier and much more pleasure to use PRchecker.info site and our free pagerank tool.

25 April, 2010 We have upgarded PRchecker.info server
Today we have completed an upgrade of dedicated web server that serves PRchecker.info site and pagerank checking tool. The new dedicated server is a real monster with the latest dual quard core processor and a hip of RAM that very well improves the performance of both online pagerank checker tool and page ranking buttons on all the web pages around.
According to the tests made, it all works much faster than it used to be before upgrde.
So, we really enjoy the new PRChecker server, and hope you enjoy either :)
2 July, 2009 Fighting spam-bots v.2.0
Regardless of strict anti-automated-use rules implemented, some guys still attempted to use our service for their commercial (?) purposes by sending multiple automated requests and thus abusing the service..
So, we finally decided to move to "captcha" based anti-abuse protection that should cut off all those spammers completely.
12 March, 2009 Strange abuse attempts, spam-bots
It has come to our attention that quite a few sites owners abuse our service by requesting "showimage.php" script from their sites and thus unnecessarily spending our bandwidth.
29 November, 2007 PR Checker service abuse and our actions
Due to some huge abuse of our services by bots and other automated software that produced excessive loads on our server, we had to re-design a bit our services.
So, the old page rank icons with the HTML code (so called "alternative" code), such as
(please note "www.site-name.com") will not work any more. The PR buttons with such codes now produce N/A or (?) pagerank, and they will completely stop working in a month or so.
Please note: We recommend all the users of our paperank checking icons to upgrade to the improved NEW pagerank buttons as soon as possible.

27 October, 2007 Pagerank Update! - we've been waiting so long..
It seems Google.com is in the process of updating publically available pageranks!
So, we can see the page rank values are unstable now, and you might notice those usual during the update pagerank "jumps" up and down, as well as some different values shown by Google.com toolbar and by other tools that check the PR of web pages.
PRchecker.info tool is also affected by the update and might show different ("incorrect") page rank values during the update. You know, we can not affect the updates :)
It seems our site is getting the PageRank 8/10 this update. This is a very good news!
And of course, we wish all the users of our free page ranks checking tool and all the web site owners to get higher ranks during this update and further!
19 May, 2007 Grey Pagerank Bar - recent changes at Google.
We can see some changes in the way Google.com represent their pagerank for the web pages that are not ranked yet or those that are banned by Google for some reason.
For a long time Google used to show ZERO pagerank (page rank 0/10) for the not-ranked pages, and now they've changed their method of representation.
Now NOT-ranked pages produce N/A (not available) pagerank results, visually it is represented as a grey pagerank bar upon the web page.
IMPORTANT: you can also see a grey bar (N/A pagerank) if either Google or RP checking tool is not able to show the pagerank due to slow connection between web servers. The internet is a rather unstable system, and the connection issues happen quite often.
So, if you see a grey pagerank bar or N/A rank upon your web page, you should not panic.
This probably means that the web page either is not ranked yet, or there was some temporary error and Google's server could not return the current page rank value, so the server said that "the page rank was not available for displaying at that exact moment".
In order to make sure your web site is not banned by Google, you can search Google for your site's address. If the address is in the search results, this means the site is NOT banned and you can relax and not to pay any attention to the temporary bug with N/A pagerank.
In this case everything should be back to normal state in 2-3 days.
13 January, 2007 Pagerank is "jumping" up and down.. An update?
Over the past few days and today we can see the values of page rank are "jumping" up and down. Sometimes we can see zero values of pagerank at some web sites and pages that used to be higher than zero. This is quite a strange behaviour of pagerank..
Anyway, it is very possible that Google.com has begun to update page ranks again. We will post further updates here when they are available.
16 October, 2006 Wow! It looks like Google is updating pageranks now.
It seems Google.com is now in the process of updating publically available pageranks.
As usually, the update can take up to several weeks, so we can see some "jumps" of page rank values up and down, and different pagerank values are sometimes shown by google toolbar and by other page ranking tools during the update.
It looks like many web sites are going to get quite good page rankings this update, and PRChecker.info wishes you to get the highest ranks for all your web pages :)
15 July, 2006 Google is in the process of updating pagerank now.
Great! It's happened again! Google.com is now updating publically available pagerank!
The update can take from several days and up to several weeks, so you might see some pagerank "jumps" up and down during the update, as well as some different page rank values shown by google.com toolbar and by any other tools, including our PRchecker tool.
And sure, PRChecker.info wishes you the highest values of pagerank for all your web pages :)
16 June, 2006 PRChecker tool has been moved to a new web server!
We have noticed that our pagerank checking tool becomes more and more popular each day.
So, in order to increase the speed of page rank checking and Pagerank Button tools and to improve reliability of the page rank checking process, we have decided to move our free PR tools to a new more powerful dedicated web server solution.
PRChecker.info is now hosted on a powerful 2x processor web server, and our tools is now much more fast and reliable than they were before.
We hope you like these changes at PRChecker.info :)
26 February, 2006 Google is updating pagerank right now.
Wow! It fanally happened! Google.com is updating publically available pagerank again!
The update usually takes 1-3 weeks, so you might see some pagerank "jumps" up and down during the update, as well as some different page rank values shown by google.com toolbar and by different pagerank tools, including our PRchecker tool.
So, if you see you site's page ranking jumps up and down, or different ("not correct") values of pagerank shown by different tools, just do not worry but wait till google.com complete the update, and the values become stable again.
PRChecker.info wishes you higher values of page rank for all your sites :)
28 December, 2005 Is Google "dancing" (re-building page ranks) now?
It has come to our attention that at this time different Google.com datacenters and servers shows different values of page rank for the same web pages from time to time.
So it looks like Google.com is "dancing" now - they seem to be in the process of updating their index and re-calculating the page rank values for all web pages in their database.
This process usually takes between 1 (one) up to several weeks, so you might see different page rank values for the same web page during different periods of time, in different parts of the world, at different Google.com web servers.
"Google Dance" (the pagerank jumping up and down) finishes as soon as they complete their update and set the final page rank values for the next period.
PRChecker.info will also show these page rank "jumps" during the Google dance, so there is nothing to worry about, that's not an error, but that are google.com database updates.
We wish everybody Happy Holidays!!
21 December, 2005 Online Page Rank Checking tool has been improved
We have improved our Online Page Rank checking tool to increase the speed and reliability as well as to reduce the number of abusive and/or automated requests:
The most important changes we have implemented are the following:
a). Online PR Checker now ignores NOT valid web addresses
b). Online PR Checker DOES support dynamic URL's now. (marked with red color below).
c). New and more user-friendly look of Online Page Rank Tool - check ranks now
21 December, 2005 We have completely rewritten PageRank Icon code
Due to the recent abuse (and thus some slow performance) we decided and by the moment have completely rewritten all the code (software) in order to increase the speed and reliability of our PR Checking Icon tool. Now it should be SUPER fast and quite reliable.
In order to reduce abuse we have implemented some changes:
a). PR Checking Icon now ignores NOT valid web addresses
b). PRchecker.info does not support dynamic URL's any more (marked with red color below).
c). If for some reason PRchecker.info can not determine the current page rank of the web page,
You will also see such image if you are behind the firewall and thus it blocks PR Checking Icon. The solution is either to switch the firewall (blocking) off, or to find some better firewall that does not block page rank checking icons ;-)
16 December, 2005 Page Rank Icon issue has been resolved
Due to the huge abuse from some Asian web sites our Page Rank Checking Icons did not work properly recently. The issue seems to be resolved at this time, however, if we keep getting increasing abuse, we will have to ban Asia from using this service.
7 December, 2005 Technical difficulties with page rank checking Icon
At this time we have some technical difficulties with the correct work of page rank cheking icon. It does not work properly. We expect to resolve the issue soon and thank you for understanding.
1 June, 2005 Complaints about non-working page rank checking Icon
We have got several complaints that "the Google™ page rank checking icon does not work correctly" and that "it always shows a zero value" of page rank. - That's not correct!
Actually, Check page rank Icon does work OK and it shows the correct PageRank™ value. The matter is that in order to get a Google™ page rank of the web page, PR tool connects to www.prchecker.info web site and determines the current page rank value of the web page.
However, nowadays modern firewall-type software (like Norton Internet Security, ets.) and/or different ads-blocking software begins to block external connections, so that software might also block the page rank checker Icon, thinking it is an advertising.
In case the icon is blocked, it shows ZERO instead of the correct page rank. So, if you faced this problem and want the check page rank icon to work correctly for you, you might want to allow (to white-list, to enable) www.prchecker.info in the firewall software and/or in the ads-blocking software on your PC.
You can make sure this is the case by switching OFF your ads-blocking software and reloading the web page where our checking page rank icon is located.
