It's official: Google puts Toolbar PageRank to rest

March 7 2016 was the last Google Toolbar PageRank update, which essentially removed ALL the data still used by the few browser tools and website tools - for good.

As Google told +Barry Schwartz (http://tgcafe.it/1QM58j5), it takes time for all the servers to completely remove the score, but it should become completely unavailable to all within two weeks.

Barry also notes that Google DOES use PageRank internally and it is still an important factor in their algorithm. However, the external PageRank score shown in these tools and the Toolbar was between 0 and 10, whereas the score used by Google internally is way more complex.

If you are thinking to yourself 'yeah, yeah, Google won't actually kill it for good', here's a confirmation by Google's +John Mueller on Twitter http://tgcafe.it/1U3MYiA.

Additional info about PR removal: +Jennifer Slegg http://tgcafe.it/1Tt4PQ6

Are you going to miss Google PR?

For me, it's been such a long time since it really mattered, that this final move is much welcomed - removing all that misleading info from third-party tools will only help us focus on what really matters: improving our readers' experience and not SEO score.
