I have a fashion website. I had redirected my domain http:// (non-www) to http://www domain and my preferred domain in Google Webmaster Tools was http://www.

Now I have redirected http://www to http:// domain and have changed my prefered domain as well.

Now Google PageRank is not showing for even a single page. Would any body please help me and let me know if I have done something wrong?

Below is my .htaccess redirect code:

RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.deemasfashion\.com$
RewriteRule ^deemasfashion\.com/?(.*)$ http://deemasfashion.com/$1 [R=301,L]
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^[A-Z]{3,9}\ /index\.html\ HTTP/
RewriteRule ^index\.html$ http://deemasfashion.com/ [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^index\.htm$ http://deemasfashion.com/ [R=301,L]

how are you measuring page rank? Also not sure the code works, as when I go to deemasfashion.com I dont get redirected – Jon Nov 7 '13 at 14:30
i am using chrome extension for pagerank. i have also checked it via prchecker.info and prchecker.info/check_page_rank.php – muhammad usman Nov 7 '13 at 14:35
@Jon currently deemasfashion.com is redirecting to deemasfashion.com – muhammad usman Nov 7 '13 at 14:35

Pagerank checkers get their data based on the "toolbar pagerank" that is published by Google. When changing your URLs, the data won't show up in the Pagerank checkers until Google updates this data.

Google typically updates this data every three or four months. Unfortunately, the process for updating this data broke at Google and they are not planning to fix it soon. The last Pagerank update was in February 2013 and they don't expect another one until at least sometime in 2014.

Internally, Google is still evaluating inbound links to your site. I have seen no evidence that shows that Google is unable to assign link value to sites internally for ranking purposes.

Having no Pagerank showing is not harming your site in any way. It is just an unfortunate side effect of Google not refreshing the data that they usually provide about Pagerank.

Thanks @StephenOstermiller. I know all this but 5 to 10 days back main page rank was 3 and few pages were 2 and many pages were 1. – muhammad usman Nov 7 '13 at 17:46
When you redirect your main URL to a different URL all of that needs to be recomputed. – Stephen Ostermiller Nov 7 '13 at 18:27
Thanks @StephenOstermiller , Before redirecting this was the same thing comes in my mind so i experimented it on a different domain. domain is saanjhpunjab.org saanjhpunjab.org saanjhpunjab.org/index.php – muhammad usman Nov 7 '13 at 21:42
My Pagerank checker is showing PR 3 for all of those. – Stephen Ostermiller Nov 7 '13 at 21:44
i had even removed redirect for all main pages. All pages are accessible non www, www, index.php – muhammad usman Nov 7 '13 at 21:44
