Attention PageRank Spotters

This could just be a vicious rumour but several webmaster-type forums are reporting that the next export of PageRank data has started. I checked the PR of this site earlier this morning and some of the data centres (DCs) are showing fluctuation in the value. 'PageRank shuffle', whereby the recorded value varies between different DCs, is a good indicator that an update is underway. It may surprise you but even a techno big fish like Google has to export PageRank values to each individual DC - it isn't a case of just flicking a switch. The timings, nearly 3.5 months since the last update, tend to agree that it should be underway shortly. Watch this space.
