This may become a New Years tradition for Google. Last year, Google pushed out a PageRank update for New Years 2009. I wonder why they make the push right before New Years? Maybe because it is slower for Googlers and less going on? I am not sure.
In any event, I hope that most of you can add this to your new years celebration. If not, I wouldn’t fret, see our explanation of Toolbar PageRank vs. real PageRank.
