Domain Change Results In Pagerank Loss
Posted 15 May 2009 - 03:41 AM
Recently changed domain name and had the old domain 301 to the new domain even with this in place it went from a PR 5 to a PR3. The new primary domain previous was 301 to what is now the old domain, basically we swapped them around. Any ideas why I've lost PR, am I now seeing the PR of the new domain? Will I get the PR 5 back?

The reason it's impossible to say is that Toolbar PR does not show real PR.
How about your rankings and traffic. You didn't mention them. Have your rankings taken a tumble as well? Has your traffic decreased dramatically?
As we've said about a thousand times, changing your domain is not for the faint of heart and should only be done for valid, non-SEO reasons. Because there is always risk involved.

Of course you've lost toolbar PR. It's only updated like 4 times a year. Once the next update comes, yours will probably be back if you've got your redirects in place correctly.

I would be interested to know if you have lost rankings since the 301 redirect went live.

I need to explain why it happened, I'm looking for potential reasons/ explanations as it basically happened over night last week.

I already explained why it happened above. New domain, it won't get it's PR updated until the next update, prolly in a few months. It means nothing, tell them not to worry about it.
