I have a multilingual website called: [removed] this website is in English and Spanish.

The past 15th December, I moved the Spanish part of the website to the following domain:
keeping all the English contents in:
(Later in Google Website Tools I geotargeted this page to Spain because the spanish version is focused in Spain)
I have made all the correct 301 redirections for each page.

After this change I have lost the page rank of the Spanish home page, before, The page Pagerank was 4, and this was the url:
and now, with this url:
it has a PageRank of 0.

I think that the redirection is ok , if you type:
you are automatically redirected to
What should I do? Wait more time? or rollback to the previous state, only one domain (www.example.com) for both languages?

Any advice will be welcome.

Thank you.

The only problem is the PageRank you're able to see then?

If so, there's not a thing to worry about. First off, Toolbar PageRank, which is the only kind you can see, doesn't correlate to the Real PageRank used in the ranking algos. Second, Toolbar PageRank is only updated every 3-4 months, not constantly like Real PageRank. So you shouldn't expect to see any assigned Toolbar PageRank until at least one update has occurred.
