各位还记得上一次 PageRank 更新是什么时候的事吗?2013 年 12 月 6 日，其实这一次的更新也是一次系统事故，Google 是情非所愿，如果真算上 Google 计划内的更新的话，应该是 22 月前的事了。那么下一次呢?永远没有下一次了。
Googler John Mueller 就在 Google Webmaster Help 论坛表示 Google 没有再更新 PageRank 的计划了，以后 SEO 网站也没必要再盯着 PageRank 不放了。
The last Google Toolbar PageRank update was 11 months and 18 days ago, almost a year ago, onDecember 6, 2013. Google's John Mueller has told in a video hangout that there probably won't be PageRank updates in the future.
But now, John Mueller wrote it out in a Google Webmaster Help thread saying Google "have no plans to do further updates," around PageRank. He even said webmasters and SEOs should stop using "PageRank or links as a metric" around their web sites.
Here is the full quote:
I wouldn't use PageRank or links as a metric. We've last updated PageRank more than a year ago (as far as I recall) and have no plans to do further updates. Think about what you want users to do on your site, and consider an appropriate metric for that. http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.ch/2011/06/beyond-pagerank-graduating-to.html
And just a reminder, that toolbar PageRank refresh from about a year ago, was an accident. If that didn't happen, it would have been almost 22 months since a toolbar PageRank update.
