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]

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. Commented Nov 7, 2013 at 17:46
  • When you redirect your main URL to a different URL all of that needs to be recomputed. Commented Nov 7, 2013 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 Commented Nov 7, 2013 at 21:42
  • My Pagerank checker is showing PR 3 for all of those. Commented Nov 7, 2013 at 21:44
  • i had even removed redirect for all main pages. All pages are accessible non www, www, index.php Commented Nov 7, 2013 at 21:44
