On December 6, 2013, today, Google has updated PageRank. The PageRank update is quite surprising because Google’s head of search spam, Matt Cutts, said on October 6, 2013 that Google would introduce new PageRank update in 2014, not before that.

This update is really good news for online businesses that adhere with Google’s guidelines, but it is really bad for those who try to manipulate Google search results with their wrong practices. The websites that follow Google’s guidelines have been benefited by the update, while the websites that ignore Google’s guidelines have seen fall in the page rank.
Check your website’s PageRank with a PageRank extension in Google’s Chrome or Mozilla Browser.
