Google: Toolbar

  • Google Toolbar PageRank officially goes dark

    Google told us they will be removing PageRank scores from the Google Toolbars last month. Well, now, Google has finally and fully cut the data from the Toolbar and any tool that tries to fetch that score. There are dozens of reports across the web of people asking over the weekend where their PageRank has gone.

  • RIP Google PageRank score: A retrospective on how it ruined the web

    PageRank — the secret sauce that Google used to become the giant of the search world — is no more. No more for the public, that is. Google’s numeric rating of how important it considers pages to be will soon no longer be accessible to the public. Good riddance. Ever gotten a crappy email asking for links? Blame PageRank. Ever had garbage comments with link drops? Blame PageRank.
