Google updates the PageRank displayed in toolbar on Jun. 27, 2011. Google PageRank is just one of factors that determine the position of the page in the search result page. But seeing the growth of Google PageRank is fun for webmasters. The’s PageRank is 0 from its birth after the site moves from and the changing is done after the first Google PageRank update in January 2011. However, I believe the PageRanks of should be quite good after it updates since the PageRank of and original one at is around 3 and 4.

Today, when I open my site, I am still surprised, the Linux homepage and my homepage‘s PageRank changes to 4 and the other for blogs (Cloud Computing, Web, Programming, Software) has PageRank of 3 in homepage. In addition, and most important, a large number of posts (especially the ones that are linked to from the homepage) get the PageRank of 3 or 2.

That’s a fun thing (although it is not so important) which is a prize of writing blogs. And I also thank for my readers support to this site.
