For the last few days there has been a lot of discussion on places such as Digital Point about a Toolbar PageRank Update that is happening. Barry reported yesterday about links being updated in webmaster tools, but the pagerank fluctuations are quite strange.
Lots of people are reporting strange fluctuations, and PageRank 7 seems to be appearing and disappearing for many sites that really don’t deserve it.
I wouldn’t have written anything at all, but then I received a message asking for a link exchange with a PR7 site, and knowing what was happening on Digital Point, I thought I would spend 20 seconds investigating
Yahoo seems to report ~60 backlinks for a PR7
That is possible but so unlikely based on the actual link profile.
Just beware of people looking to benefit from whatever bug is in the current changes.
I must admit I have never been much of a fan of link exchanges anyway, or blogrolls
