This is a small post for those who have been banging their heads on various forums about “Google Kills PR” and “Pagerank addons not working” kind of stuff.
Actually I did that too. ( 😛 )
Be assured that google did not kill PR. Page Rank continues to be a big deal for determining the quality of incoming links. Hence we can understand your ordeal when you are suddenly left with no way to check the google PR for various domains.
Its just a simple change in the Google API url.
Trace this following line in your pagerank script.
Replace it with this line
for some of you the last line might have to look like this one.
Notice the change in URL. “search” part now replaced with “tbr” which would ofcourse be a short form for toolbar. Their engineers have done some upgrades there. But why change the url. No Idea.
