Google has confirmed it is removing Toolbar PageRank

It’s official: Google has decided to kill off Toolbar PageRank from its browser.

Google has confirmed with Search Engine Land that it is removing Toolbar PageRank. That means that if you are using a tool or a browser that shows you PageRank data from Google, within the next couple weeks it will begin not to show any data at all.

Google explained that the company still uses PageRank data internally within the ranking algorithm, but the external PageRank values shown in the Toolbar are going away completely.

For years and years, Google has stripped away PageRank from their Toolbars and browsers and hasn’t updated the PageRank score in it in years.
