Google Directory Shows Page Rank

Google pulled the most recent ODP RDF dump file and updated the Google Directory with that file. Because of this, PageRank scores are found on the left side of each listing in the Google directly.

These page rank scores in Google Directory scores are much higher than those shown on the Google Toolbar. This is because the Google Toolbar and the Google Directory have different methods of displaying PageRank scores. Google’s Toolbar is not an exact, nor recent value of the true Google PageRank score for a particular page. It might be possible that the Google Directory is using either a more recent or a version that is much older than what the toolbar is showing.

The last Google Directory update took place on September 25, 2007 and Google Toolbar PageRank update on January 9-10th of January 2008
