As some pages of my site have gotten n/a of PR from Google, I need to see the history of PR's changing for those and other pages to estimate the situation and decide what to do. Where can I get the past PR's of exact site/page?

I do not believe that you can get the PR of any particular page, just for the site overall. Is there a tool you are using to help us comment better? – closetnoc May 26 '14 at 18:18
have you tried moz tool bar or moz seo tools – melisagaza May 27 '14 at 4:05
@Marian: You really should forget this PageRank concept. – Zistoloen May 27 '14 at 9:19
@closetnoc: Each page can have it's own PR. /example can be a 4 while /garbage could be a 1. – Martijn May 27 '14 at 9:23
Of course there is PageRank for pages, that is why it's called PageRank and not SiteRank (only possible to see the green toolbar PR however which is not a true, real-time reflection of the actual PR value). It is not possible to see a history of PageRank change for pages on a domain however unless you build a tool specifically to store PR change in your own database. I'm unaware of anyone else that has built a tool such as this. – zigojacko May 27 '14 at 10:35

The reason that many pages on your site have no PageRank is that Google hasn't released data for any pages created since December 2013. Google occasionally creates a snapshot of all the PageRank on the internet. That snapshot is what you see in the Google Toolbar and other PageRank checkers.

Google doesn't offer a history of PageRank, just the value as of the last data refresh. The only way to have gotten the historical values would have been to record them yourself.

Because the toolbar PageRank data is so stale, you shouldn't worry about n/a PageRank. There are other metrics that indicate that Google is happy with your site and your pages. I stopped paying much attention to PageRank and I use indicators like:

  • How often does Googlebot crawl the page?
  • Is the page indexed when I search for its URL or for its title?
  • Is the page ranking well for any keywords?
  • Is the page getting referrals from the Google search engine?

"Google hasn't released data for any pages created since December 2013" - I know this. I was only troubled with the situation, that some my pages had had PR not n/a, and then site got a manual penalty. After that the PR on some pages became n/a. The penalty was removed, but the n/a PR is still there. – Marian Jun 21 '14 at 18:31
